That’s not a band or a school or something fancy schmancy from GoogleMaps (or whatever might pop into your head). It’s actually what I want to do with this blog.
Oh sure, when I started out, I wanted to talk about travel and food and drinks and whatever…and that’s not going to change. What I’m wanting to do is give ET a bit more direction, resulting in more posts (which is one of my New Year’s Resolutions).
I’ll give you a minute to cheer or sob loudly, whichever you prefer.
So what’s the direction? Well, each month is going to focus on two things: a place (some I’ve been to and some are still on the To Do list!) and a featured food group (I’m not asking you to pull out your USDA Food Pyramid, I’m just going to focus my recipes a bit more). Don’t worry, though, there will be plenty of rambling on and on and on and on and…well, you get the idea.
I’ve made my list and I’ve checked it twice, but I’m always open to suggestions–so feel free to comment about some things you’d like to see here–be it certain countries, certain recipes, or even more food and wine pairings. And if you don’t like this new direction, by all means let me know , so I can chuck a U-ie and try something else (I’m easy that way!!). But please be nice/constructive…because quite honestly, if you’re nasty and mean, I’ll probably just ignore you.
Okay, first up: January, which is going to feature Soups and Portugal. Don’t roll your eyes, it’s cold here in New York in January (although not as cold as it is in other parts of the world) and soups are a great (and healthy!) way to warm you on a cold winter night. Cliche’? Yes, but amazingly tasty! And no, I’ve never been to Portugal, but I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE me some port (more about that later!), so off I go to do some research!
