See, you can "Have Your Say," but I reserve the right to do something called RETORT.
To Mr & Mrs Anonymous Commenter, butch up, toughen up, and grow up. Leave a name, or email address so the bloggers that you are giving your unwanted advice to, can hit you back.
THANK YOU, to all who commented yesterday and actually left a name or email address. I had something to say and judging by the comments, many of you had something to say. The conversation was great and profound. It really is not a surprise, judging that most of you who commented are some of my favorite bloggers.
Yesterday, one of the themes was inspiration. I would like to keep that theme going today. Another one of my "Mount Rushmore" foodies opened my eyes to a possibility that, frankly, I am a little embarrassed that I did not realize myself. I am by nature a deconstructor in the kitchen. If you read LC you already know that I love to reinvent or reimagine classic dishes.
Tanatha from I Just Love My Apron recently deconstructed one of my dishes. A real honor that someone as talented as she would take a shot at redoing a dish from LC. She took my black bean & catfish dish to a whole new level.
So, the new series is not Pissed Off Rant Wednesday, Alisha, AKA Magic of Spice from The Ardent Epicure, although it does have a ring to it for sure! Alisha is a wonderful Friend and fellow cook, she also shares my love of the show Fringe. Check her site out, it's impressive.
The new series will be Foodie Friend Deconstruction Saturday. I see so many fantastic dishes out there that I know I will never be short of material. Be on the lookout, I may be coming to a dish near you soon...
The first person whose inspiring food I shall be working with is Faith from An Edible Mosaic.
Faith is a worldly and talented cook. She makes food from all types of cuisines. So, it is easy for me to draw inspiration from her blog. If you do not know Faith, do yourself a favor and click on the linkage above and check out a truly great food site. By the way, today is Faith's Birthday, so wish her a Happy one!
It must have been an extremely wise philosopher or a sage that first uttered the phrase "There is a first for everything." Such is the case on LC! After nearly 5 months of doing Guest Posts someone who agreed to do one did not come through. Not a word or an "I'm sorry", nothing just vanished.
Luckily I have a true friend who stepped up and offered me a post. Tanantha from I Just Love My Apron is a real sweetheart. Thanks, T! So, she makes her unprecedented 3rd appearance as a guest on LC! My prediction is that it will not be her last!
Guest Post Spotlight Thursday
This post was Tanantha's entry into our Quickies Cocktail Challenge, a fun and flirty non-alchy drink. Along with her deconstruction of my Pan-Roasted Catfish with Black Beans.
