I know its been about a million years since I posted. Life got away from me. Things changed. I didn't have a lot of energy for cooking. I've done some reorganizing of my thinking and come to realize how important it is to me to continue to work on creating food that my family and I can enjoy. Especially since I've decided to become a vegetarian, who lives with and cooks for a meat eater. I am still eating eggs and dairy products (though I am trying to cut back on cheese, why I will never know since cheese is amazing). I never did eat much fish but might occasionally have shrimp.
Also, I realized I suck at food photography. Anyone want to give me any lessons?
