|Spicy Cornish game hen.|
Intermittent posts and the ones I have done are less then stellar.
I will tell you why.
But, wait, Gourmet Runner did a great post about what (she) people love and hate about a blog posts. You must read it - it is brilliant.
But, back to why my posts have been intermittent:
This month will mark the one year anniversary of my Mom's passing. And the unfortunate thing? The anniversary of her death is the same day as my birthday.
Yes, you read that right.
So, while I have been hyper-kinetic and running twice a day (two miles (each) while trying not to think about things) I have been cooking.
How did the Cornish game hen turn out?
Not too shabby.
I tend to over cook chicken out of a freakish fear of salmonella poisoning but that is an issue for another post...
To get back to my reference to the Gormet Runner's post:
I definitely prefer posts that are honest.
I dislike blogs that are happy all the time and I have an equal dislike for the super dismal ones.
I hope this one is somewhere in between.
My sister is determined to not celebrate my birthday on my actual birthday (just for this year) and it is nice to have a big bucket of siblings that are facing the same anniversary so it is not like I am facing it alone.
On the upside - I am contemplating getting a Christmas tree and dowsing it with 20lbs of tinsel - but I fear the ensuing trip to the vet's office because my dogs just cant stop inhaling the shiny stuff off the tree:-)
