We’re Back and Ready!Posted: November 1, 2009
The wedding and honeymoon were both completely amazing and we’re back and ready to start blogging again! A big thank you to our guest bloggers, Julie and Sasha, for taking up the slack while we were away. We hope that they will be willing to come back and write a bit more as I found their posts fascinating (and I loved the fire-escape container idea, any tips to deal with vicious Brooklyn squirrels?).
The trip to Portugal and Spain was full of excellent wine, cheese, bread and various other vegetarian things we could find (surprisingly, a few great restaurants). We actually did a bit of cooking, which was a pleasure to do while traveling, but with the euro clobbering the dollar, $30/Week went on a vacation.
I leave you with a few food-related photos while we get our house in order and get ready for our normal eating/buying habits to resume.
