It’s All For Me

It’s okay to be greedy, sometimes. It’s alright to want something all for yourself.

My fiancé would have me be at her apartment from morning until dusk, which I wouldn’t mind. When you get a plate of food that you know is going to be better than anything you’ve ever consumed, you want to put a force field around the dish so nobody but you could get to it.

This blog, I want to use it to learn and teach gastronomy, creation and preservation. Even though I want you to appreciate this as a place of learning and pleasure - for your appetite - I want this for me. I want this to be an experience for me. A want to talk with people. Learn from you and share with you. It makes me feel a little greedy to consider this my way of learning, more than it is a place for your to grow along with me. I want this experience for myself, but a part of me wants this for us.

For weeks, I’ve been wondering what my first real blog post to be. I’d posted some stuff earlier, but they weren’t from the heart. I just put them up to have something here, so this wouldn’t be some barren wasteland of a site.

This is me being truthful. Speaking from a fraction of my heart. Let’s make and learn some awesome shit, okay? Okay.

Has anybody ever pulsed #oreos in a blender until you have a powder, then snorted it? Where’s the biography on that poor soul?

It’s a fantastic moment when I can safely stand outside and drink a cup of coffee while enjoying the sounds of morning. #GoodMorning
