NaBloWhatMo??



Seeing last year's NaBloPoMo's logo on my blog and coveting it, inspired Tanya to sign up for this year's marathon. Which makes me glad for Tanya, but also like I'm letting the side down by not committing myself this year. If I did though, I'd have to be committed in an entirely different context, given the current computer situation. Reading first posts today, I'm catching a little of the fever, so although I don't want the stress, I'll hitch a ride, unofficially and post as often as I can. Lame? I have my sanity to consider, and floors to wash [I hear you Isabelle!], and in-laws to visit, and comments to make, and books to read, and "miles to go before I sleep".....Not to mention the quilt I have vowed to FINISH before you all post your thirtieth piece!

On a visit to this farm stand last week, to buy some of their Fall corn to make some delicious corn chowder, it occurred to me that I COULD post a recipe a day for the month, thereby killing two birds with the one stone---fulfilling NaBloPoMo requirements AND organising my favourite recipes. I have played with the idea of starting a recipe blog, Molly Bawn's Kitchen, for instance. There would be many advantages. Liz wouldn't have to hope I could lay my hands on it when she needed a recipe from me, and I wouldn't have to tear the kitchen apart when I was looking for a favourite recipe that I swear, I just saw HERE the day before yesterday!
But a juggler I am not. One blog is as much as I can manage to keep in the air at any given time. So I will content myself with an occasional recipe on here. And I just know that the OC, if he is lurking, is grinning like the cat that got the cream, to hear me admitting, that something he suggested, when I didn't know one end of a computer from the other,is a good idea!

So blog on people! I'll be listening.

Its not too late to start, you know.

First recipe, the much coveted chocolate cake of Hungarian origin.

Tanya Brown said...

Mmmmm. Yes. Cake recipe and/or a photo of it. Corn chowder also sounds good.

It's never too late to start.. and I'll be content even with more posts from you than usual. If you can't do the everyday thing (not sure I will be able to fulfill that, either.. although I signed up), seeing more of you will still be good. :)

A post a day is but a pipe dream with me but I love food blogs and would love to read some of your recipes.

Either way, I enjoy reading your blog. I do not even make the rounds to comment on a daily basis. For me, writing a post on a daily basis just would never happen in November. I look forward to a recipe every now and then

because of you I picked up a Doris Lessing book at the library and I'm part of the way through it and loving it. Each word feels like it has been chosen with incredible care.
And the cake sounded divine.

Heyyyyyyyyy a recipe blog sounds cool. But yeah, I know what you mean by keeping multiple blogs. One for me is bad enough... so yes, bring on the recipes on this one :) Would love to see them!

Just wanted you to know I've fixed my SloPaLo (slow page load). It's safe to come in the water again. ;)
