Today I urged the members of the Board of Directors at the tail end of their meeting to check out my blog. Self-serving as that would seem because as I look at it, mostly everything on it is me chattering on about family stuff that relates to food. Before those hard-working board members comply with my request, I'd like to have someone beside myself put something up here. At this point, it needs some fresh ideas, a different style of writing etc. So if you haven't been invited to author for the blog, as must be the case according to the bloggy rules, let me know by email ( firstname.lastname@example.org( that you would like to be an author. You will immediately receive a request to join as such from the blog people. The behind the scenes stats indicate that this blog is being read by a goodly number of people, even at odd little corners of the globe. So talk to us about restaurants, recipes, food tips, intense food dislikes and likes. Please help me keep the narrative going in a variety of directions.
On the way home from Fairfax, I had an early dinner at a local family restaurant. Sent the vegetables back, because even though they were lovely and fresh, they were barely cooked. My big complaint is about under-cooking fresh veggies. If I want a raw vegetable, I'll order a salad. Green beans should be cooked through and carrots soft, not crunchy. This quick steaming thing may be the current popular way to present vegetables, but I want them cooked. The waiter graciously took them away and returned them to me steamed in lemon juice and quite edible.
