Creeping Back to the Surface

I would seriously like a count on how many people (well, moreso women) update their blogs, no matter how outdated they might be, merely because they re-watched Julie and Julia.

I clearly, would be included in this bunch. I'm pathetic. I also have it on DVR so this is a frequent occurrence.

I just dig food and cooking for that matter. Not just merely to eat it, but because it's such a central item to human nature, it's a part of tradition, culture, identity, it nourishes body and soul, also it lends perspective, experience, and helps people to relate to one another. Why else would someone read another person's blog about food? They can relate to that person on some level.

I love writing about food and I don't think that will ever change, but I always give myself these challenges or stipulations for my blogs and they inevitably cause me to shoot myself in the foot. Healthifying Ina Garten recipes, vegan/vegetarian eating, organic holistic eating. What the heck am I doing? You know what really happens, I start that blog, I do it for a few weeks, and then I cheat. I cheat because I'm flaky and I have no follow through. Then, I don't blog, because I have this unnecessary guilt following my cheat fest and I'm too shame-faced to even blog about it, I'm a fake, a farce I tell you!

So I've decided, I'm just going to redo this as a catch all blog, write about whatever's on my mind and not give myself any restrictions. I'll just cook what I want, when I want, and talk about what I want- then I have no reason to be ashamed and hide from my own blog.

I mean, my husband is already aware that I obnoxiously do what I want, my blog might as well join the club too.

This was therapeutic, I'm glad we had this talk Mr. Blog.
