Welcome! Whether you’re visiting from the Blog Party or a regular, come on in. I’m so glad to be participating in this year’s Blog Party. It’s a great way to meet other bloggers and new online friends. (You can also win prizes – I’d love the amazon, restaurant, or camping gear gift cards!)
(Go for the brownies, virtual calories don’t count!)
Don’t mind me as I move that huge stack of cookbooks – I’m kind of a book and cookbook junkie. I’ve recently joined a Slow Food Book club which is super fun. See that ratty looking cookbook on the top of the stack? That’s Simply in Season, and I’m trying to cook every recipe in it by the end of August. I was drowning in vegetables from my CSA (Community Supported Agriculture, where you get 1-2 bags of produce every week from a farm), and I thought you know, I really need to cook more. Simply in Season has tons of great recipes in it, why don’t I try to cook from that instead of hunting through my many, many cookbooks? Then I heard about Julie & Julia, and thought I’d start a blog.
What a fun adventure it’s been! Simply in Season also includes little stories and anecdotes and essays about eating locally, in season. Besides taste, there are lots of great reasons to do so – especially from a biblical perspective. In order to explore those issues I’ve started a Food & Faith Challenge. I hope you can join us.
