Right now I'm both studying for the Bar Exam and really missing my blog. Here's what I've decided to do. First of all, I'm not making any promises about whether or not I'll be blogging at all in the next few weeks. (Although I suspect I will be. . . some, at least.) If I completely fall off the face of the planet, you should know that I have some really great things planned for Appetite for Conversation in August ~ new features, new topics, new recipes, and all kinds of "new." If I disappear, definitely check back in August.
Second of all, there's this idea floating around blogs these days that I kind of like. The "Remix Challenge" is popping up everywhere. (Like here and here) Basically, people are agreeing to select 30 items from their wardrobe and only wear those 30 items for 30 days, mixing and matching as they go along. Kinda fun, right?
Since I read about this it dawned on me that I often follow a "Remix" kind of lifestyle, but with food. Particularly when I'm super busy I turn to a handful of standard things my family and I like to eat, and I reinvent them over and over again. The shopping is simple, the preparation is simple, and the amount of thought that goes into it is simple. Yet more often than not we end up eating a variety of meals with pretty darn good food.
In the coming weeks I plan to blend my need for "simple" with this idea of "remix." When (and if) I post, it will be some remix of one of my standards. You are likely to see:
Let me know what you think!
