Hey everyone –
Wanted to give you a heads up that this will be my last consistent weekly email/blog post through the end of summer. I think it’s been almost 2 years of sending out a weekly email and year of the blog! I found out a couple weeks ago that I have an early stage of (curable!) breast cancer so not exactly sure how I will be feeling about meal planning and cooking. I will send out emails and updating the blog when I feel good – which will hopefully be the majority of the time.
For those of you under 40 and do not get yearly mammograms, please start now! You don’t always feel a lump and there are times when things aren’t caught in your yearly exam. If you are in the Seattle area, I highly recommend BBIC http://bbic.com/ – the team there is great.
Turkey burgers with goat cheese and red pepper relish (I don’t use any of the lemon zest/juice)

Skirt steak salad (I use flank steak instead) with blue cheese http://smittenkitchen.com/2010/09/skirt-steak-salad-with-arugula-and-blue-cheese/
Grilled ciabatta bread (cut into 1 inch slices, brush both sides with olive oil then sprinkle with salt and pepper– put directly on the BBQ and turn after 1-2 minutes)
