I took a break from posting my meal plans because one week I was planning to leave for Texas, one week I was in Texas, and the week after all of that tomfoolery, our dinners were rather lackluster due to exhaustion and my newly acquired bum foot.
This week, I decided to take a different approach. I spend a lot of time reading cook books, food blogs, food magazines, and non-stop talking about food. I’m so deeply interested in new cooking techniques, ideas and recipes that I can’t help but pour myself into almost anything food related.
It is because of so many of the blogs that I read that I am constantly inspired to never become complacent with my cooking. When I was released into this blogging world, I didn’t know what I was doing (still don’t), how to find my voice, or all the technicalities of posting (again, still don’t). I don’t know jack about SEO, or XYZPDQ – but I share my kitchen adventures because it is something I love – and if you’re not sharing love, what are you doing?
Slowly I’ve been welcomed into this community of bloggers and I can not thank them enough for their support and warmth. So this week – I’m not only sharing my love for food, but also my love for 7 food bloggers that I read by using a recipe from each of them for an entire week, rather than falling back on my own cache.
I’m terribly excited.
If any of the recipes/blogs I reference do not want to be associated with this post, please let me know.
*Quick and dirty pictures will be added as the week progresses.*
Sunday: Prime Rib Roast with Fresh Horseradish from Elizabeth of Guilty Kitchen, Mashed Potatoes and a salad – I simply adore Elizabeth’s take on local and seasonal food. I always crave to be at her table.
Tuesday: My Pickle Chicken with Grilled Potatoes with Lemon Aioli from Smith Bites who got the recipe from Carrie of Delicously Organic. – I can’t wait to try these potatoes and also meet Debra in July (I am nervous). Aioli cures all.
Friday: Lemon Risotto with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes from Brian at A Thought for Food, who adapted his recipe from Bon Appetit magazine for the site RSVP Redux which was created by the always fabulous Vino Luci.
Links, links, links, galore!
This is going to be one of the best food weeks ever.
