Tomorrow’s May 31st!

Posted by

I am back physically, but getting back mentally is taking a bit longer than I planned. This weekend I went to visit the city that I’ll be moving to at the end of the summer. Yes, you read correctly… moving. As I’ve mentioned before, I have some exciting transitions approaching (rather quickly, I might add!). I do not know this unspecified city very well, so my close friend Christina met me there and we explored neighborhoods to try to get a sense of where I should move. What is this mystery city? I’ll give you a hint… I’ll be heading north.

Christina and I had a great trip, ate some really delicious food, and danced until our feet hurt. Now I’m back in NC–listening to my Michael Jackson Pandora station, catching up on email and work, trying to stay cool (it was almost 100 degrees with the humidity today!), and yes, food blog readin’! :D.

So, no food today. But I did want to remind everyone that tomorrow is the last day of the month, which means it’s time for another “Your Best Recipes (YBR)” Roundup. Tomorrow, head over to Nancy’s site to see the food blogosphere’s best recipes from the month of May. I hope you all had great, long weekends!

  1. How exciting! I hope your mystery city is Portland, Maine — we have lots of vegetarian/vegan friendly restaurants and communities here. Best of luck with your new transitions!

  2. Tiffany….I know how stressful moving can be. So I hope this is a happy move for you. I always love fresh starts! And you are in NC now and moving north. Hmmm……closer to D.C??? Or maybe back to your home town? I hope it all goes smoothly for you. And if you get too stressed out….let me know. I’ll whip up something virtually chocolate for you! : )

  3. OOhhh how exciting! I know moving can be stressful… I have moved quite far after all!!! hehehe But it is exciting and I hope you’ll love your new home!!! <3

    Hope you’re doing well. 🙂

  8. Ohhh… moves are exciting! Looking forward to hearing more about it. 🙂

  9. Moving is always a great adventure … minus the tiredness after and of course the packing and unpacking. Happy moving!

  10. Moves are always exciting and nerve-racking all at the same time – hopefully we hear more about it soon =)

  11. What fun! I always love picking up and moving to a new place. It’s a fresh start, a chance to meet new and exciting people AND there’s always loads of new restaurants for me to familiarize myself with. Finding your new ‘local’ is always a blast 🙂

  12. I agree I hope that it is a happy move for you! If you get a chance I would love for you to enter my eco friendly giveaway.

  13. Moving sucks… but there’s always new and exciting things once you settle in. Good luck, my friend!!

  14. Hey Tiff, wishing you a happy and safe move. Looking forward to you doing even moreawesome things in your new diggs.

  15. I do not like moving…but it is part of life…I am glad that you are excited with the move…it sure makes the transition easier. Good luck on your move…have a great week Tiffany 🙂

  16. I love fava beans. They’re so hearty and good for you too. They make you feel good as well…kind of like lima beans but better and on steroids. haha! Good luck to you with the move! I hope the transition is smooth sailing and happy all the way.

  17. It’s nice that your friend Christina spent sometime in your new neighborhood with you and you two explored together. Did you like your new home area? I used to move a lot and it was fun for me as I love organizing and making a new place “home”. But now with the 2 kids, oh my, a thought of moving scares me. Hopefully we get to stay in this house until we retire. Haha. So enjoy and get to know new area, and you might like it even more! I’m sort of envy. 🙂 Good luck packing and all!

  18. I haven’t had favas in so long. They look delish. 🙂

  19. This looks yummy….you have a lovely blog…I am having a giveaway in my blog..Y dont you check and join that
