A Couple of Things About Me…

A couple of things.
I spend a lot of time in my kitchen. Cooking and talking, chopping and chatting, slicing, dicing, and coffee klatching. The kitchen table is my office & the hub of the household. It’s where bills are paid, scrabble is played, where homework is done and those family dinners are eaten. And it’s messy. Really messy. Many ideas come to me while I’m in the kitchen, BUT never in a million years did I think anyone would be interested in my recipes. The funny thing is, I rarely use recipes–I usually just make it up as I go, with whatever is on hand, and that’s always been good enough.

Then there’s this…
I LIKE to talk. In fact, I’ve made a decent career of it. Radio shows, voice overs, mc-ing events, fundraisers, etc. After throwing the “mom thing” into the mix, I’ve often been asked to “spread the word”, promote “the cause” or the car wash, collect donations, and chair the committee. I’ve volunteered, participated, baked the brownies, rallied the troops, circled the wagons, broke the ice, opened the door, put my toe in the water and my foot in my mouth.

AND now…
I’m trying something new! This website/blogging thing is virgin territory for me. Foot in mouth is clearly a possibility. Granted, I’ve been on Facebook for a over year with Back to the Kitchen, but this here is a little different. I’ll figure it out. When all else fails, I’ll cook, take a picture of dinner and post it.

Welcome to the Blogosphere. It is an interesting exercise to say the least. I imagine you will do very well.

Thanks, Bob. I may have to consult you if I venture down the road of bar-b-que ~ your stuff always looks amazing!

This looks amazing!!!! Almost as good as the photos of one of your dishes!
So excited to see how this little foot in mouth experiment goes for you … because I know foot in mouth will NOT be the result!
