Okay, so I really have no idea what I'm doing right now, and I think it's kind of lame to spend time writing about (or even mentioning) that. So, moving right along.......
I'm doing this for a couple different reasons:
#1. I love food. Period. Cooking it, eating it, experiencing it, talking about it. Enough said.
#2. I was out at Mint on N. Russell with some co-workers remarking on the libations and talking about food as I often do. Specifically, I was fantasizing about the basil ice cream at Pix Patisserie and telling them about my flubbed attempt to recreate it.....when Heather and Denise said I should start a food blog. My response was typical...."Me? What-ever for????? There are so many out there, why would anyone read mine???" The answers from my very young and very hip co-workers were v. kind and obviously motivating....
Just two days later, I was chatting with my sister in front of a friend and describing to her a morsel of food I'd tried (at Mint). The friend (Juanita) remarked "no matter what the topic of conversation.....you always manage to bring it back to food." I took this as a compliment. Amazingly, the topic came up AGAIN.....(me starting a food blog).
#3. Getting my cooking & eating experiences down in this way will help me track them, remember them, share them and recreate them.
Does anyone care so far? Maybe not. In fact, I am betting nobody will. BUT ----- for you (Heather, Denise, Sabrina, Juanita......) maybe others...... I'll share a little about what I cook, where I eat and drink, what I do with my Organics to You provisions, and whatever else I think of.
