Breakfast Mess with Eggs, Sausage, Potatoes and Green Peppers

I’m back! I took a bit of a break from blogging the last few weeks. Life was overwhelmingly busy, so I took a bit of time off. To get some work done. To relax and enjoy what little personal time I had available. To cook, eat well, and take a few new photos to share. I missed blogging. I wondered what the other food bloggers I hear from regularly were up to. I’ll be catching up on that later this week.

What kept me so busy? School, projects, research, work, and a convocation ceremony! On Saturday, I officially received my MA degree. I’m still working on getting pictures. I was so happy to have many friends and family there to support me! I lent my camera to dad, so I have a few pics already.

I’m hoping that this week I can get back to my usual blogging routine! (Coming soon, a cookbook review!)
