Can it be?

Can it really have been all the way back in July when I last updated this blog? Shameful! Since my time in Madison, WI, yours truly has been out and about– eating around the Philippines, Hong Kong, and now back in sunny Southern California. Clearly, I can’t promise much, given how many other posts I’ve left by the wayside, but in the meantime… just a few of the things I put in my mouth this summer!

I’ll give you a proper update soon… I think.


NY Food Binge 2009

… And yes, that really is the title of a new desktop folder, now containing dozens of pictures of nothing but the food I ate over the past five days in New York.* Ostensibly, me and the Mister were there for our good friends’ wedding, but when we weren’t wedding-ed up we were eating. Lots. Both old favorites (and I mean old… childhood faves included!) and new surprises. Heck, we even ate incredibly well at the wedding and rehearsal dinner, too! The only disappointment I had was that we didn’t get to eat at Momofuko Ssam or Ko (my ‘new to try’ places this trip) but overall, this was one successful visit back home. Spent time with great friends, gained a few pounds. Yep, good times.

Some teasers for upcoming posts:




Stay tuned!

* A brief clarification: You may want to call it “NYC” or Manhattan or “The Big Apple” or something else ridiculous, but I don’t go there. It’s either New York, NY, or simply ‘the city’ to me. Most often I use it to mean Manhattan, though in the general sense it stands for all of the NY Metro area. Just to be clear, though, when I mean Brooklyn or another borough, I’ll say it directly. Get it? Good.
