The months are flying by! I started to berate myself for not writing blog posts, and then I remembered I’m doing this for fun. The holidays consumed my life the moment after my post about the magic of pumpkin seeds. After New Years and unloading a Uhaul in ice and snow (finally got my bookcases up here from MS!) I have been hard at work on the regeneration of my business…. Sarah Shotts Storytelling. Yep, just like the Doctor my brand is regenerating. I’ve been freelancing as a wedding photographer since my early college years, but now that I’ve settled down in one place I’m taking it seriously. And adding cinematography to the mix with wedding films!
Not making any excuses, but that’s what I’ve been up to for anyone who’s curious. I’ll post a link to the full regeneration when I get the new website done. (Have I mentioned building websites has changed a lot since the 1990′s? Sure is handy having a computer programmer for a husband who can help me troubleshoot.)
We’ve been doing some nerdlywed things over the past few months, just not with camera in tow. Here are the highlights…
- We made these GORGEOUS Irish Nachos, but they were WAY more trouble than they were worth. Nathan came home to find me juggling three or four different elements in a panic and helped me finish it up, but the payoff was not worth the effort (and cleanup!) involved. I think we used almost every dish in the kitchen. But a Pinterest recipe in a cast iron skillet will get me every time. Plus, who doesn’t love nachos? (Consider yourself warned.)
- On a lighter note this Chicken Pot Pie recipe as Pioneer Woman is as easy as that…pie. (If you buy a rotisserie chicken from Walmart and your husband de-bones it for you that is.) Highly recommended. Cooked it for the second time yesterday. (And did I mention I cheated and used the frozen Pillsbury pie crust. Tasted just fine.)
- We’ve also fallen for Pioneer Woman’s Rigatoni & Meatballs and Chicken Quesadillas.
Can’t wait to get back to the food blog thing, but busy busy busy with work from all sides right now. (Did I mention I’m also co-founding a Shakespeare Theatre Festival at my alma mater? Go follow us on FB if you’re into that sort of thing.)
Don’t forget to be awesome.
