Far too many days have have passed since we last posted, and far too many life events have materialized in that same amount of time. I guess that’s why we’ve been quiet.
This guy here, the Chef, was called from Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington, DC shortly after our return from the Midcoast of Maine.
They heard he did wonders with food for the crews of both the USCGC MANTA and ABBIE BURGESS. They were intrigued, and possibly wanted more from him personally.
While the details of what headquarters wanted worked themselves out with the powers that be, he received a call from …
Because of these delish little chocolate bars of goodness, he and they, will be featured in an upcoming issue!
Then, a three week Coast Guard training sent him to Petaluma, California. Naturally, where the Chef goes, I too shall go… this time with his Momma in tow. It was five days of wine, cheese and rolling green hills, which equates to bliss. Very reminiscent of my dearest France. And, it’s true what they say on TV. Happy cows do come from California. Just look at all that green grass and wide open spaces. Makes me happy!
These fluffy cuties look happy too!
While he was there, Coast Guard headquarters called and said… we want you in DC and we want you now. And so, within the next few weeks we’ll be on our a way to a new adventure.
We never dreamed DC would be a place we would call home. Paris yes, but DC, not a chance. It makes sense though. There’s plenty of history and the culinary experiences are endless. Not to mention it’s only ten hours from the future Traveling Pear Forever Farm! We like that idea very much.
Any advice for a pair of DC newbies? We’re searching for housing, neighborhoods, history jobs (pour moi), any kind of resource. Send us an email, or comment. We would be delighted to hear your suggestions.
