"Bad things happen to people who eat bad things." -John Powles
Hello? Hello? Is this thing on? Yeah, so I've been almost completely nonexistent on this blog for...oh ages now. I have a myriad of excuses, some of them quite understandable even, but none of them serious enough to keep me off here for the last several month. I really had no intention (today) to get back on here, but my dear sister-in-law laid down a challenge, so here I am. She came up with a brilliant idea for their farm blog, a way to follow what she and my brother do on a daily basis on their farm, Innisfree. She plans to take a photo everyday this year and post it so we can follow the goings on of all the goats, chickens, cows, horses, dogs, cats, etc. in all their farmy glory. Look at them here So I says (and it's on the Facebook, so there are witnesses and everything!), "Hey that's a cool idea. Maybe I'll do a year in food!". After this many years on earth as a member of my family, you would think I would no better, but no. So, I will attempt to live up to the challenge and post pics of my life in food for one whole year. The good, the bad, the ugly, the guilty pleasures, the weird... Ugh. This could get rough. Seeing as it is already the 5th of January, I have some catching up to do. I will try to post recipes when possible/I feel like it/I'm not loathing life as I know it. So for tonight, I will leave you with this:
Day 1: Cincinnati chili, my way. Made with beef shanks and a lovely aged cheddar. I'm kinda proud of this one, so I plan on writing up a recipe soon!
