I know, its been a while

I'm ashamed. Absolutely ashamed.

I know, I haven't blogged. I haven't blogged in ages. I feel guilty. I feel like I did when my mom caught me feeding the dog pot roast. Just like I owed her an explanation, I owe you one. Here we go.

I just started a new job, and not just any job. I am now a member of the U.S. Foreign Service, basically in Layman's terms: I'm a diplomat.  As a result of this new career, I moved to DC and was in diplo-boot camp for 5 weeks. These 5 weeks exhausted me. I was reduced to eating sandwiches and making salads after work and going to sleep. Thus, Fro and a Fork suffered. No time means no cooking means no blogging. Its sad, I know.

I found out I will be heading out to Caracas, Venezuela in February and I'm currently in training for that. I'm super excited to head to Venezuela and eat arepas all day long, but thats in the future.  Now that I've got a better grasp on life in the foreign service and my work-life balance, I'm excited to start blogging anew.  My goal is 3-4 posts a week and I hope to cover some amazing restaurants and use some interesting ingredients now that I'm no longer a student and can afford to do so!

So please, please...come back.  I missed blogging, I missed photography, and most of all I missed you guys and your feedback!
