Taste this soup and it will put a smile on your face. You won’t even have to say, “Cheese.” (PS. take some advice from a photographer and never ask your subjects to say cheese…that’s where the term “cheesy smile” comes from. So, just ask them to smile.)

As I look back at the past month and wonder where it went, I see that Yes!Chef! and I have been pretty busy with life type stuff and he hasn’t had a lot of time to cook up a bunch of things for the blog.

The members of the Schmautzhaus have gotten together again for some summer celebrating. This time we were celebrating two birthdays for the price of one, so to speak. Two birthdays were exactly a week apart, so we all got together yet again.
We all scream for ice cream, is how that saying is supposed to go. However, I am now 1 for 3 as far as ice cream goes (1 win to 2 losses). So, now every time I tell my fam that I’m thinking about making ice cream, I think they all do a silent scream.
I am starting to fall a little behind with Yes!Chef!’s food blogging. He’s pumping out great food faster than I can take pictures, edit them, taste the food and blog. Then, there’s this whole world around me that is begging to be photographed, to say nothing of my photography business. So many beautiful people, so little time. I’ve been as busy as our Lavender Bees. All this to say that I have some heavy duty catching up to do, hopefully in the next few days.
