I love the dinners I make and I think, overall I am very successful in the kitchen, but I definitely have a “menu” from which I draw my ideas. I think part of that is that pretty much the same ingredients are available at each store in town – nothing really different from the next except more expensive mushrooms and good sushi quality seafood and the local Fresh Market, but still – the ingredients remain fairly unchanged throughout the year. That is perhaps the blessing and the curse of living in such a temperate climate. So – what I am looking for is things to expand my current menu of foods I keep lodged in my brain. Seafood is easy to get as are most fresh vegetables. I am not a big sweets eater and don’t have red meat or pork in my diet. Browse the blog for my cooking tendancies and help me get out of the bubble. Granted, its a well fed and satisfying bubble, but its a bubble none-the-less. I’m going out tonight, but will hit the grocery store tomorrow…inspire me!
