Soon after I completed my first post yesterday, I began to ponder the possibilities for today’s topic. Sure, I first focused on encouraging (okay…PESTERING) family and friends to read my blog, and then doggedly tried to figure out why WordPress would not allow comments to my blog. But, after solving that urgent issue and watching as a few kind souls provided gratifying feedback to a needy, fledgling writer, my thoughts quickly turned to “what will I write tomorrow?”
Frankly, more than a dozen topics danced around the penumbra of my brain, but nothing really stuck, so I decided…stick to your core…FOOD! Over the coming months, you can count on reading a great deal on football, movies and food (I have another as yet dormant website called www.foodfilmandfootball.com, so stay tuned) and I promise to explain the rather confusing title to my blog, but food will likely be my “go to” topic.
I’m curious if it’s my family background, where I grew up, or simply my unique culinary cravings that cause me to think about food almost every minute of every day. As a child, I would sit around the dinner table with my family (dinner being our midday meal, the evening meal being supper) and in between bites of the current meal, we would discuss what our next meal would be. Fast forward 40 or so years and I do exactly the same thing to Kim! Folks in Alabama, and specifically Eufaula, love their fried food, and I am no exception. However, as time marches on, and our disdain for cleaning up greasy messes grows, fried foods fade toward the occasional treat realm, while grilled seafoods and the like come to the fore.
Hence, for whatever reason you will see a great deal of information here about my favorite recipes, favorite restaurants, favorite beverages, favorite food cities, etc. Hopefully, I will receive feedback and ideas from y’all in this regard and we can all work together toward delectable and sometimes healthy food choices. In the meantime, WHAT’S FOR LUNCH?!?!?!
