Day "One" of NaBloWriMo / by Anne

pears in a bowl IIIt's ironic that I haven't written about food in weeks when all I've been thinking about lately (and doing?) is food-based.  But tonight Ashley of Not Without Salt  posted an irresistable invitation to join her in a lovely yet insane challenge to blog every day for the month of November -- National Blog Writing Month.  This is, of course, concurrent with other national writing situations-- most notably, National Novel Writing Month.   I believe for "NaNo," though, that you have to pump out a 50,000 word novel.  In contrast, I've got to write blog posts.  The juxtaposition of these makes the notion of daily posting feel a little more possible and a little less brain-explode-y. I'm using this as an opportunity to think less and write more.  Things may get a little loose and sloppy around here for while, but hopefully it's worth it.  Because honestly,  I would love to share with you all the thoughts about food that have been interrupting  my life and my sleep in the past few months.  Recipes may not be as frequent, but here's hoping you'll get some food for thought.  I'll tell you more about what's been going on around here in the next post.

This is not November first, but hey, I just found out about this thing a mere few hours ago.   So.  Let this stand in for Day 1.

Well, time to get down to the nitty gritty. Here we go.  Yessir.  Not intimidated at all.  Right.

If you are curious about this and would also like to challenge yourself, here's the link.
