Because food matters

A Blog with a Plan

I’ve been trying to come up with a plan of attack for this blog adventure.  I found my first gray hair this weekend, and I really hope the two aren’t related.  (Don’t worry, though, it’s gone now.  I know I can’t do that with every one, but it seemed appropriate for the first one.)  Regardless, I think I have a starting place now…I’ll post my menu plan for the week and then choose one recipe to post in more detail.

This week, we’re planning on Pasta with Tuna and Capers, Pasta with Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Skillet Hoppin’ John, and Loaded Baked Potato Soup.

The first three are from Mark Bittman‘s Food Matters Cookbook (where I got the subtitle for the blog) and the last one is from the latest Penzy’s catalog.


Ironic Dinner

I spent a significant amount of time today working on getting my domain name, hosting, and blog started.  I only took a break to go out for sushi and take a nap.  I didn’t even cook dinner.  Kip had leftovers and I am having a mug of Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup.  I find this amusing since the blog is going to focus on real food and home cooking.
