Hello there! Since this post is my first ever blog post, I feel some sort of inclination to write a little introduction. But, just like writing an essay, the intro is always the most dreaded and the most difficult part to write for me. So I will keep this very brief since I’m having a Julie Powell moment (Julie & Julia,) and I’m wondering if anyone, apart from my mom, is reading this. (Hi, mom!)
I would not call myself a die-hard foodie because my culinary spectrum is somewhat limited since I have many dishes that I cannot and will not eat, namely any animal that swims. Although every time I tell someone this, the common response is usually: “Pig can swim too, you know?” But I dare to disagree! Apart from Babe, the talking pig, I’ve never seen a swimming pig before. So, yes, I do eat pork. Anyway, back to the point of this paragraph -although I’m not a foodie, I live, think, breathe food. I wake up thinking about what I will be baking today, I think about dinner as soon as I finished lunch, and I go to bed thinking (and probably dreaming) about what I am going to eat tomorrow. So I would just call myself a food addict. And, hey, that’s not such a bad addiction to have, right?
Another annoying habit of mine would be documenting every single dish I eat before taking a bite anywhere and everywhere. Those who know me well have gotten so used to giving me a moment after the dish has arrived, to take a picture, no matter how starving they are. (And I love you all for that =) ) If only my skin was a little bit thicker, I would probably start taking pictures of dishes on other people’s tables too. But don’t worry; I’m not that crazy…yet. But I have to admit that I’m more addicted to my camera than my blackberry. Therefore, I guess it’s about time that I do something with the gazillion food pictures that I have on my laptop. Although I’m nowhere near being a good writer, I will try my best to share all my gastronomic delights with you all. So please ENJOY!
