Blast From the Past

Posted By On December 8, 2011 @ 7:00 am In From the Kitchen,Holiday Recipes,Life, Love, and Loss,Lifestyle | 7 Comments

A lot has changed over the past year.  Well, actually, that’s a bunch of baloney.  The kind of stuff people write in holiday form letters.

Aside from remodeling [1] a house, not much has changed.

Oh, except that I decided that I was going to be an eater instead of a cooker.  Because even though I love to cook, I get burned out.

A year ago my kitchen was on fire (not literally, thank goodness), and at the rate I was doing food-related posts, you’d have thought my days were numbered.

And then I ran out of things to cook and stopped blabbing about everything I put in my mouth and started writing about everything else.  Which has been sometimes hard for me and sometimes hard for others.   But it has been a great outlet for me- one I never thought I had.

Now that the holidays are around the corner and I have a kid who wants to be fed every twenty minutes, I am back in the kitchen, planning what I am going to make for Christmas Day and trying not to burn what I am cooking tonight.

This time last year I was cooking up all kinds of winter time stuff.  Like Butter Cookies [2] and Sweet Moroccan Yams [3] and Chicken Pot Pie [4] and Butternut Squash Risotto with Sausage [5] (which actually looked like poop but tasted great).

So go read and get your culinary self on.  Send me some new ideas, too.  I am getting tired of orange food.

This post was inspired by Mam Kat’s writing prompt,”Blast from the Past: What were you writing about last year at this time?”
