Though I’m not planning to post about food, it’ll probably sneak its way into a few posts. Partially because…well…duh it’s something I do everyday, partially because I like looove food, love eating it, cooking it, shopping for it, reading about it and partially because I believe that if you’re going to eat, it should be crazy pleasurable and food is part of the adventure of life and so, yeah, it gets its fair mention.
Here’s some stuff you should know about me and food: although I’m not big on fast food, I love eating cheap (it’ll take you less than five minutes to convince me we should stop at In-N-Out or make a run to El Chato — I’m talking to you, Bean — and I have a credit line at the roach coach that stops outside my office every morning). I’m game for pretty much any kind of food (with the exception of raisins and abalone and tripe. Also, I’m pretty fussy about apples given that I went to school at a place smack dab in the middle of an apple orchard.) If you’re squeamish about food, we may be friends but it’s likely there are times that we just won’t hang out. Or have much to talk about.
I’m not just talking outta my bum here; I know my way around a kitchen pretty damn well. I even spent 15 minutes contemplating a stint at culinary school but, as much as I love restaurants, am even insane enough to dream about owning one one day, I’m not sure if the upside down life of those in the culinary profession is for me (though the fact that I’m up writing this at 3 am, not an unusual time for me to be writing, or even awake, may lead you to believe otherwise).
Back to topic: I also bake. I find it relaxing. So yeah, I’ll likely throw in a recipe or two (believe me, you’re gonna wanna haul out the mixing bowl when I decide to share a dessert recipe), there may even be a restaurant post or two, but I’ll leave serious discussions of food up to the people and blogs I know who are failure-free when it comes to food. You can check them out here, here, here, and here.
But…umm…yeah…food will sneak its way in. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
