This blog has been neglected for years, worsened by the fact that I canceled my Flickr account, which means a lot of photo links are broken. I have the photos, I just need to take some time to upload them. Anyway, maybe I’ll work on it, maybe I won’t. I just feel the need to acknowledge it’s a mess right now.
Have you missed me? So much has changed that scrolling through the previous 10 entries conjures memories from a previous life. But that’s not to say things aren’t good. They are. Beautiful, awe-inducing, emotional, complicated, challenging, and precious.
My little Oklavore just turned 1 and it’s been about a year since I posted. Coincidence? I think not.
Continued silence around here is likely, but I am hoping to get back to documenting our adventures with local food and other food-related interests. Our baby brings more joy and meaning to all aspects of our life, including (and especially?) food.
Meet Brian. Today is his birthday!
This man has been part of, if not responsible for, many delicious meals and food adventures since we met two years ago at an Asian-themed dinner party in my friend Marcy’s serene backyard. He was a guest; I was wearing a yukata and ensuring everyone’s enjoyment, namely by refilling sake cups. It was an easy (and serendipitous) gig. I overheard him speaking emphatically about ginger and pork and my ears perked up. He’s held my rapt attention ever since.
