Hi, y’all! This is Rose-Anne’s Kitchen, checking in with her sweet readers to say that all is well over here. Rose-Anne has been really busy this week, and the busy-ness is going to flow right on into the weekend. A special gentleman is coming to town this evening, and I hear they’ve got reservations at The Lemon Wedge, in Bryan, Texas, College Station’s better half. On Saturday—and I can’t even believe this is true—they won’t be cooking with me at all, except for maybe some breakfast nibbles. There’s a lunchtime birthday party to attend and a dinner party invitation across town. Oh, and at some point between the festivities, Rose-Anne has to pick up her race packet for Sunday’s half-marathon.
It sounds like a marathon weekend to me! Don’t tell anyone, but Rose-Anne confided she’s feeling a bit stressed about all the activity, not the least of which is a 13.1-mile race starting at 7 AM on Sunday. I told her that maybe she should cancel something so as not to go crazy, but she said that she’d rather be a little stressed than cancel any of the plans. “So be it!” I said. Actually, it doesn’t sound too bad, letting other people do the cooking and then just showing up to eat and laugh and share stories. Then there’s the Matt factor: things are always more fun and relaxed when he’s around. I think she’ll be okay. She also wants me to wish you a happy weekend.
Until next time! And for those of you who want to know how the half-marathon turns out, you can check out Rose-Anne’s running blog, Feels Like Flying, where she shares pictures of her feet and bikes caught in trees.
