Well, not much new in the food department this week. Erin’s cousins are visiting, so we haven’t had the time to try out new recipes. We’ve basically been sticking to the easy standards, like orzo with citrus-cooked vegetables and Giada’s baked penne with roasted vegetables. Last night we made pasta with roasted tomatoes, chickpeas, and arugula, one of our favorites. This was the first time we had fresh San Marzano tomatoes from the garden to use, and (of course) they were so much better than the rocks you find in most grocery stores.
As of Monday, I’ve been blogging for six months! Which means it’s been about six months and one week since I ate that final, nasty, roadkill-disguised-as-chicken sandwich from the rest stop on the way home from the Tony Robbins seminar that got me all jacked up to make some major changes in my life. For about a month after that, I still ate fish but no other meat. And after that month, I stopped eating fish, save for a few very rare occasions (maybe three times since then).
So all is well, and after six months of eating this way, I can say I’ve never felt better. But I’ve decided that my blog needs a new look to reflect the mature, distinguished six-month-old-with-a-discriminating-palate that it is. Since I’m about as graphically unartistic as one could be, a friend of mine is doing me the huge favor of putting together a brand new, shiny, custom header for me. But this means that my tagline will become just a little more permanent, so I’ve been spending some time trying to come up with a new one.
I saw a post on Run, Eat, Repeat the other day where Monica polled her readers for input about what her blog tagline should be. I’m borrowing Monica’s idea and doing the same. (One of the taglines makes it seem like I “borrowed” something else from Monica’s blog, but I swear that’s coincidence.)
Do your duty as a proud citizen of the blogosphere! Thanks so much for your help!
