Life Goes On, Beach Food & Chocolate Croissants!

Have you ever noticed how food is always such a big part of both the most tragic and exciting of life's big events-from weddings to graduations, funerals and birthdays?

Life goes on and we have to eat!

Earlier this week my teenagers and their Dad were in a really scary car accident. The other driver was on the wrong side of the road and when they swerved to avoid a collision the car spun around and flipped on its side! The glass shattered everywhere. They were really shook up but remarkably all three of them didn't have any injuries. Sadly, the other driver didn't even slow down. When the Police arrived he was long gone.

I talked to my teens and made sure they were OK and did my best to comfort them. I told them they'd probably feel as though they were 'in shock' for a couple of days.

The next morning I woke up early and baked them buttery croissants with chocolate. The way I see it making them a special breakfast before they went off to school didn't change anything but it helped.

As for the beach food, it's that time of year again when I steal as much time as I possibly can to spend down at the beach. I grabbed a couple of hours yesterday to meet a friend, catch up and eat lunch. I made us tasty fresh avocado, garlic hummus, swiss and cheddar cheese wraps rolled on flour tortilla's.
