Uh oh, I am almost afraid to admit this, but I took Monday off from my cooking challenge. It was my birthday, so I decided to spend the day hiking and sight-seeing instead of cooking.  I was going to end the day with a dessert or cocktail challenge, but birthday beers took over my evening and depleted my energy. Oh well – there are 31 days in March and I am attempting a 30-day challenge… so I think that I can let myself off the hook… hopefully?!

Not the kitchen
