Feeling green

So I am green. That is, I am new to blogging and am learning a LOT. Like how to comment and interpret comments. And how to look at other blogs (oh there are soooo many food blogs out there!) and not get blogger envy, at least for very long. It's all part of the process. So I thought I better get up to speed with the technology and start adding more photos with each post. I get it that people want to see what you're cooking. The photos add a lot to the posts and I've seen some really beautiful ones on other people's pages, so I thought I'd give it a try. I used to be into photography in college (was the photo editor of the newspaper) but it has been a long time and digital photography is a whole new beast.  But there's my lunch above. A plain omelet with brussels sprouts. 
And above that (because I can't figure out how to move it) is my coffee break with pistachio-orange chocolate chip biscotti that I made at work today. 

And tonight, winter minestrone (top), an adaptation of Alice Waters' vegetable minestrone to which I added turnips and their greens, potatoes, and udon noodles. It was filling and nutty and the parmesan crostini were nice, though a bit much with the noodles. Next time I'll leave one out. 

Hmmmm. I think I'm getting the hang of this. 


  1. excellent! another helpful blogging tip is to use new paragraphs more often as it's easier on the eyes...

  2. I enjoy your "What's in Season Now" section. And yes, you are green, but it's fun to learn with you.
