Holy Poached Eggs: The Legend
Blogs need a focus. I wanted to focus on food, because I love cooking, but more importantly, I love eating. Some of my blogs strayed from the main topic, and sometimes, that’s okay.
But the strength of a good blog is consistency and focus.
I kept asking myself what I should do with the blog, where it should go with the food.
Now I know.
I heard Debi Mazar say today that she and her husband are not Chefs- they’re Eaters. They love to cook, they love to cook for other people and enjoy food together.
Then it dawned on me that my blog had a similar focus, and I had my theme- my blog is about being a Southern guy that enjoys eating.
I represent what many people, if not most Americans, are- I’m a fairly normal person (okay, I’m a bit quirky, but that’s beside the point) with a powerful passion about something that he wants to share with the rest of the world.
This blog is the gift of myself to the world, perhaps the only real gift I have to give in life. My skill at writing and passion for eating good food combine two ordinary things in an ordinary person to create a superpower that generate good in the world and combat the forces of darkness through a very basic means of sharing and discussing experiences with food.
Food is a great uniting point. Think about it- at the end of the day, no matter who we are, or where we’re from, we experience hunger, and we seek out food. We have recipes that have been handed down to us from our cultures, we have foods we adore, foods we revile, foods we want to try, and foods we want to share.
There is a great sense of fulfillment in wanting to cook for others and have them enjoy one’s food. I am absolutely giddy at the thought of preparing food that someone else will enjoy.
Thus, I take this gifts that I have been given and give them back to the world- this blog is only the beginning, somehow I know that!
Thanks for visiting, and do come back to read about my eating, your eating, and everyone’s eating!
