A very very belated blog, back when I was really trying to keep this baby going on a regular basis. Wishful thinking, as I went from slow motion preggers, to my new gig as Mama, to Mama helping her friends open up a restaurant to my next chameleon color: baker…raw pastry chef…whatever I’m doing has really drained my clever writing skills and every time I sit to blog, all I get to typing is….what is going on word for word. No funny left in me! I think all my funny cells are going into milk production. I hope the milk B is getting is full of Vitamin Funny. Every body loves the funny guy.
Here is a blog I wrote almost four months ago, when the energy of finally opening The Blissful Carrot was just picking up. I benched the blog, because I thought it needed more something.
But in the spirit of ‘it is what it is’, here it is :)
Good things are happening in Macau!
Good food is coming to our ‘hood.
Even better? It’s healthy food!
Even better? It’s in my favorite part of Macau, Old Taipa, just a few minutes walk from our place.
Even better? It is the blood, sweat, heart, and tears, of our dear friends, The Randle’s.
Even better? I am honored to help get this beauty up and running and help with the day to day healthy baking creations.
Can it get better??
Beckett gets to come with me! Beckett + Baking = Bliss!
The BLISSful Carrot to be exact!
And I am loving that my guy is utterly laid back about being shaken around in his carrier by my rolling, chopping, and mixing. We’ve been baking and dancing up a storm in The Blissful Carrots lofted kitchen. So special because as two people who love to cook and bake, Marisa and I haven’t had a real kitchen in years, so believe or not, by China standards, this is magic!
There’s even room for a little shut eye.
I am so greatful to be getting back to day to day busy-ness, and a boss who will also sit on the floor of The Carrot and breastfeed with me when nature calls (or cries):)
Marisa was my first friend when I got to Macau. Both of us, probably thinking we’d just be here for a bit, would take our dogs to the park together and dream up ideas about starting the first food truck in Macau. A good salad is an urban legend around here. If you’re a vegetarian, you’ve got an uphill battle in the restaurant scene. If you’re not a vegetarian, like myself, you were probably pretty turned off by sketchy, unethical meat options so you seek out the veggie fare anyway! Now here we are, two kids between us later, and the dream has gotten much bigger.
It makes me sentimental seeing our two boys together, getting to be Mamas together, and now getting to mess around all day in the kitchen together!
If you think something can’t be done, just ask a Randles. They are like a super combination of can-do-it hippy’s fueled on coffee and vegetables.
I am over the moon to be able to be helpful to some of the kindest people I know. Their energy and joy are contagious and and I can’t wait for it to light up Old Taipa!
