October 6, October 6, October 6. Here we are. Hello October 6!
I’ve been holding this day for so long, and now it’s just a good average Tuesday. I’m home with a sick kid, and tonight Joey and I are going to see The Martian to celebrate. That’s what I requested. Because really, it is a big day.
Today, The Homemade Kitchen hits shelves. Maybe it’s showing up in your mailbox, or maybe it’s appeared on the shelf at your library. However it makes it to you, I hope it finds a good comfortable place in your kitchen. Whatever kind of cook you are, I hope it meets you where you are and helps you get to where you want to be.
If you’re cooking or reading or even just paging through the book and you want to share, I’d love to hear about it. Tag any images with #thehomemadekitchen and I’ll see them right away, or feel free to get in touch through FB or my email.
And the events! They start this weekend, and I’ll be updating the list regularly. There’s a pretty complete list up there in the “classes and events” in the nav bar, but I wanted to post the first few here where they’re really easy to find.
