First taste

It’s been entirely too long since this blog has been updated.  I suppose we’ve been too busy eating, working around the house, and dreaming of our summer garden to write.  This is of course no decent excuse when you consider all those blogs out here on the interwebs that are updated weekly if not multiple times daily.  Well, let’s get back to it, shall we?
