Not to worry. I'm not eating fried egg sandwiches with melted peanut M&Ms on top. It's just that the only things I seem to be craving this week after Christmas are fried egg sandwiches and peanut M&Ms, ergo the absence of new postings on the Other Side of 50. Post holiday blues? Perhaps. However, it probably has much more to do with the fact that I quit smoking three weeks ago and I'm devoting most of my energy to that effort. Please don't judge me if this is your first knowledge that I had such an enormous flaw. I only ask you bear with me as I make my way through this journey, one day at a time. For now, I'm finding much comfort eating my egg sandwiches and munching on M&M's while sitting in my favorite recliner, petting my dog and reading some really trashy romance novels.
I just wanted you all to know that I'm still here, just in my own mini-rehab. I hope to have an intense desire to cook something special next week. Until then, Happy New Year!
