In blog years I am now 8 days old! And what a week its been....
Writing a food blog is a lot like sitting on stage in a dark auditorium with a spotlight on you. All you can see in front of you is pitch black and you have no idea if there's anyone in the audience at all - anyone who hears you as you give this monologue that you pretend is part of a conversation!
Then out of the blue, you hear a shout via a comment to a post and you realize that there is someone out there in the darkness and it is exhilarating. So Thank you to all who took the time to comment and share your thoughts and insights this week. Please keep it coming and if you ever think I don't want to hear....please think of me on that dark stage!...smiles....
Now onto some tedious techy matters. I've learnt some things (as we have all) about the world of technology - its imperfect and its a lot like pulling teeth. But I'd like to address some concerns that have cropped up this week -
1) Follow me - is a 2 step process - you first have to register using the link on the right sidebar & then click on the green button that appears at the same spot on my web page (which will pop-up). If you don't click on the green button, the process is incomplete.
2) When you post comments, there is a delay between you posting & it appearing on the blog. So no worries - as long as you hit the submit button we're fine.
3) How do you get email updates when I post something new? I have added a 'subscribe - enter email address link' by feedburner on the right hand sidebar. Please add your information there if you'd like to receive an email every time I post something new.
Now its definitely time for some food talk - this week's going to be all about the Classics - whether its salads or some heart warming soups!
I'm having fun exploring the use of roasted chiles (which is nothing like the mouth-on-fire Thai chillies) but the more flavorful large ones that impart a smokey flavor to the dish.
Now I don't want to give anything away but hint hint... leeks are in season now and have made their first appearance.
Thanks for joining me in the kitchen this week. Please stay for the friendship and the food!
