June 2019

Oh my, it has been a very long time since I have posted any recipes. I take the photos, share them on Instagram, but then stop the creativity train there. Matt told me it doesn’t have to be perfect, and that kind of released me from the blog paralysis…well sort of. If I could only talk in pictures then everything would be great in my world - words do not come too easily to me. So, let me stumble through this post. However, I get to talk about food here and friends and that is enjoyable.

Speaking of enjoyable, our Krause friends are back in town for the summer from Colorado. We love when Jillian arrives with her family as one, we know summer is finally here, and two, Jillian loves to talk recipes, create, lets me take heaps of photos, and she doesn’t mind our super teeny kitchen space. Our kids hang well and so do we! Last summer, Jillian brought over a tray full of freshly picked beautiful red juicy summer lovin’ strawberries and ingredients to make a berry bruschetta AND wait for it….strawberry margaritas. We seriously have some of the most awesome friends!

We are already planning for another al fresco recipe night with Jillian. There is talk of clam chowder and lobstah’s. Stay tuned!

And that's a Wrap to 2017!

And that's a Wrap to 2017!

Hello there and Happy delicious and inspiring New Year to you! I know I have said this before in other posts, but I will say it again - Whew! It has been a whirlwind of activity both personally and professionally for our Newport Sea Salt family. During our first small business Christmas season, we moved into our old home in Newport from military housing. This was our first move ever that did not involve moving out of state, across country or across the ocean - but just across town. It was the shortest move we have ever made, but not the easiest. As snow came down as well as the cold temperature, we watched as box after box came into our home marked ‘nick nacks’ and books waiting to find a cozy spot in our extra small home. Matt and I just looked at each other with a bit of bewilderment, but smiled and started to unpack - and decorate for Christmas. Did I mention that between the move and the crazy holiday season that it was business as usual?! And not usual by any means, as we had vendors calling us with replenishing requests and new orders to stock their shelves. It was AH-MAZING.
