A while back (… ok a few years ago) I decided that I wanted to start a blog. I mean, I read blogs (both friends and others – my favorite ‘other’ being Jen Lancaster’s), I read books that were created from blogs, and I have a lot of opinions. But, little did I know that it is hard to write a blog based on random thoughts and have anyone but your mom read it (sorry momma!). I had planned to do a “monthly experiment” each month and write about that, but it didn’t really pan out as planned.
It’s time for my blog to take a turn… a turn into delicious territory.
You see, I am the main chef in my house (although don’t tell Matt that I said that!) and I like to experiment with different things. Some may seem regular or mundane to others reading this (like learning to use the BBQ and my many attempts to perfect both a delicious steak rub and then grilling the product to a perfect rare/medium-rare) to a bit more out of the norm for a weekday dinner (deciding one afternoon that I clearly need to make fresh pasta to get rid of the squash that is piling up in my fridge).
Part of what helps is the random vegetables that get delivered to my house every two weeks – thanks to a wonderful service offered by Bryson Farms. I’ve learned about pea shoots, found endless things to do with squash/kale/swiss chard, and roasted more root vegetables that I can count.
I hope everyone (even if it is just you mom – and maybe Mal) enjoys this change. It’s new, its (hopefully) interesting and chances are…it’ll be delicious!
