I have a few things I want to say. Everyone else has been saying what was on their minds, so I’m going to take my turn, too. It’s been a hard couple of days. I consider myself pretty emotionally tough; I have the ability to compartmentalize difficult, even traumatic situations. I have the ability to move on from a lot of things without looking back. Some would probably consider me aloof or even cold, but I feel comfortable being able to go through life without getting mired down in too many emotions. But this one was bad. I did a good job of hiding it, but it really is bothering me, and I’ve been thinking about it almost constantly.
I think everyone has figured out by now that I have a serious love affair with food. I love cooking it, eating it, talking about it, looking at it. And since I’m no recipe-developing whiz like so many of my fellow food bloggers, I will occasionally seek out help and/or inspo, especially on those days when I’m out of time, patience and ideas. And this week I thought I’d run down five of my favorite websites that have great selections of recipes that can help to fuel your kitchen adventures, too.
Although the concept has existed for quite some time, it seems as though recently meal planning has become more popular. Whether this is engendered by time constraints in our everyday lives or for health reasons, a variety of people are utilizing (and enjoying) meal planning. I’m going to take a look at two forms of meal planning, what I like to call “free style” meal planning, and “service” meal planning, and compare some of their pros and cons.
There are plenty of people that you could ask, and they would tell you that Lexington is a town that knows how to throw a party. We just recently hosted The Breeders’ Cup and all its extenuating festivities. We do a pretty swell Fourth of July as well. From backyard barbecues to major corporate-sponsored events, we like to get people together and eat some delicious food, enjoy an adult beverage, and celebrate…well, whatever needs celebrating. And that, very often, could not (or should not) be carried out without the aid of a catering service. Lexington has plenty to choose from, and this week I’m going to do a brief rundown of just a few of the local services you should keep in mind for your next event.
We’ve all heard the term; it’s as common in everyday language these days as “internet” or “Kardashian” (scary, I know.) And while we all know – in general terms – what it means, on another level it means something different to everyone. Like so much slang terminology, it began as something completely different than what it is now. And this week, I’m going to talk about its brief history, and what exactly it means to me. So prepare yourselves: I’m about to get a little philosophical, and probably ask a whole lot of questions.
