Ok, I’ve done it. After months of deliberating which blog site to use, what to blog about, etc., etc., I’m finally able to post my first post. Yay! And since my world seems to revolve around food, I’ve decided that I will blog about it, among lots of other stuff I’m sure. But food, yeah, it’s become my passion. My masthead is a picture of a Bacon, Lettuce and Scallop salad I made a while back that I was particularly proud of. Now just because I love food and I love to cook, I will not boast that I am good at it. I consider myself a good recipe-finder. I think anyone can cook (if you’ve seen Rattatouille you know what I’m talking about), it’s just like anything else, you have to WANT to do it to be any good at it. I love to entertain, invite family and friends over, and cook for them. I put a lot of passion into my cooking, and I suppose it’s one way I show my love for those closest to me. One of these days, I’d like to have a job in the food industry in some capacity where I can make a little dough without sacrificing time spent with my family. Right now I have the most boring job on the planet, but I have lots of flexibility, 4 weeks of vacation, and get paid pretty well for what I do.. all stuff that I have a hard time giving up for something that may or may not work out. My ultimate dream job would be a food critic. Now who the hell wouldn’t want that job? Hmmm?
