Day 1: Ca Ri Ga (Vietnamese Chicken Curry)
Blah! I can't seem to shake whatever's been going around this winter. Coughing all the time and being fuzzy-headed is no fun. :( I don't think it's just me. Seems to be a general blog malaise going around the internet? So here's the deal. I know some of you check in each day. Thanks for that! But I'm literally sick and tired. So instead of taking an extended blog break (Because I'll surely miss you all if I do, and perhaps you'll miss me?), I'm taking a page from SouleMama and doing a month of mostly photos. Although, yes, I did make ca ri ga (Vietnamese chicken curry) yesterday. And yes, it was very good. :) Quick question. I'm butting up against my Blogger photo limit and have been toying with Flickr. Which of these photo sizes do you like better? Or do you prefer the old Blogger photos like in all other posts?
I have no idea how this will pan out, but I really could use a break from writing. Hopefully this gives me a chance to craft some nice posts, finish some blog organization, and have time for some real life stuff I need to take care of too. Think of it as a preview for the next month. So for the month of March, perhaps my blog will be real-time and I'll put up photos of food on the same day or the day after I actually eat it? Maybe I'll cull from my long, long queue and show off some pretty food pictures that I haven't gotten around to writing down the recipe yet. Drop a note if you really, really want the recipe and I'll move it up the queue. Same goes for some restaurants that I just haven't gotten around to posting about yet. And maybe I'll sprinkle in some crafting and gardening pictures that I don't feel like writing about but want documented for my own edification.
I noticed that ya'll have been using my indexes so that makes all the time I spent organizing it worth it. If you're tired of looking at only photos, and you haven't checked it out yet, you can see the complete index of recipes and restaurants.
So forgive? Although really, I hope I'll just whet your appetite with some of the stuff I've been holding out on. What can I say? Sometimes it seems to take too much time to churn out a post, and you didn't come here to read the "I saw this, so I made this" type of post, did you?
