A few weeks ago – well, more like a few months ago – I went to a restaurant called Kavarna after spending the morning at the Green Bay Farmer’s Market. It’s a cute, little place that serves tasty, wholesome food and unlimited iced coffee refills. Yes, unlimited refills. But, my favorite thing was the rose water lemonade.

Things have been so crazy since we got back from Canada. We only have three weeks to move out of our apartment, put our stuff into storage (a.k.a. my parents’ house), organize as much baby stuff as we can, pack everything for France, spend as much quality time with as many people as possible before

Today I have a fantastic guest post to share with you. This person doesn’t need much of an introduction since he’s been a fixture of this blog since day one. It’s Marc, my husband. He’s not in the kitchen that much – mostly because I’m always hogging it – but when he gets his chance,
