Eat, drink, blog, woman

In case anyone is reading this...welcome.

I've kicked around the idea of writing a blog for years and signed up on sites several times but chickened out before my first posts. More and more I'm talking "at" people about food which can be unbearable for the listener that was only trying to maintain a conversation. More and more I worry about somebody asking me the simplest of food questions for fear of opening floodgates of uncontrollable blabber. People are polite. They don't generally tell me to shut up. But sometimes, when I'm particularly fired up about a subject, I can leave my body and look at myself rattling on while a poor listener is politely nodding and thinking to themselves "...I don't need the history of chicken processing, just how long to cook it...". I think blogging may help me control these urges to "talk someone's ear off" and also allow for people to choose and skim the information that is important to them.

I am by no means an expert, only a nerdy interested individual. If you are reading this "regularly", drop me a line and let me know how I'm doing.

So as I begin to log my journeys into food adventuring, enjoy the blog and "Bon Appetit!!"
