An interim update...
I apologize for no cooking entry this week. Last week was Alexandria Restaurant Week, so Kevin and I went out to eat more often than normal. The $35 deals made me miss Madison...
Instead, I thought I would right about something else related. A while ago, I said that I was kinda sad to find out I wasn't the only person doing this. I was hoping that I was unique, but that wasn't the case. Finally, I commented on the blog of the one that comes up the most often in my searches: MyHungryTum.
He sent me a very nice message back, talking about Yeungling and when the cooking gets hard. I would still like to be unique, but it is good to know there is a "support group" out there too. Also, from what I have seen, everyone's is a little different. People are doing this for different reasons and in different ways. Most importantly, I started this to learn, not just to blog.
And learn I have. Last time I said that carraway seeds reminded me of rye bread. Turns out American rye bread almost always has carraway in it. I am learning about ingredients and styles of cooking and new parts of the world. That is what I set out to do.
So I added his blog to my blogroll, on the right side of the page. Go and look around! I will admit I haven't read through it. I don't want to be unduely influenced. I want to come to my own opinion of dishes, when we cook the same thing, before I find out what similar people think. But hopefully I will start being able to read the entries for the countries I have already done and learn even more.
Don't worry, there should be more entries soon. I'm cooking Azerbaijan tonight, and already have ingredients for next weekend too. But I wanted to let you know about the new blogroll and what is going on.
Have a good day, everyone!
