In like a lion, they say. We’ll see about that. I’m still thinking about February. February always has a sort of finality to it, for me. It’s such a short month, and it’s the last one before my birthday, which falls on the last day of winter. So the second month of the year already has so many lasts. The last gasp of winter, the last holiday before spring, the last moments when snow is still something magical and not yet something unwanted and half-melted. It seems appropriate, then, to do a bit of a roundup.
This is only partly an excuse to randomly collect a bunch of photos together without having to write a blog post about each one. I swear I’m not lazy. And I have been cooking every day, even if it’s not evident on here! I’m still getting the hang of this blog thing, and I had no idea it was so dang complicated. So many amazing folks out there are cooking new stuff up every day, photographing it, writing the recipe, cooking it again, adjusting the recipe, editing the photos, tying it all together with a little story, and navigating the html-ccs-blog-template-thing-whatever to make it look so dang EASY. This isn’t the hardest thing to do, but it’s sure a lot more complicated than I thought it would be. Has anyone ever tried to write a recipe? Not quite a 1-2-3 process. Anyway, I haven’t posted as much as I would have liked this month, but hopefully this is still fun to read and glance through. It is for me.
It has been such an exciting thing for me to get this up and running. I still have so much to do; my brain won’t shut off at night and I keep thinking and hatching ideas. I am extremely, forever and always, grateful to all of you who are reading this. It’s really a joy to work on, and so many of you are such inspirations. So thank you, and I promise it’ll keep getting better!
I used to make those potato pancakes at the Northside… back in the before times, when I worked there. Man, those things were annoying.
….but they’re SO GOOD. it was probably me you were making them for, i order like six at a time.
