Because life isn't busy enough

OK, I'm nowhere near as busy as most of you who have young kids and jobs and all sorts of household responsibilities. But I'm busy for me, and there are days when I get only half the items on my list actually done. I hate that. I used to be the Queen of Organization. My house used to be spotless. I used to wear clothing that was not, shall we say, 2 sizes too big and older than my kids. But lordy, that is so my life these days. I'm sure not sad about it. I love the way my life is developing as I turn older and more settled and satisfied. I have stopped wanting to be hip and thin and beautiful and smart. All I want now is healthy, awake, and alert. That can be a tall order some days!

But one thing that is keeping me very happy is my latest gig. I think anyone that reads here for a while knows how I feel about food. I love food. I love to eat it, I love to read about, it love to share it, I even love to cook it. And now I get to love to write about it daily on Forks.ca, a sister blog to my regular holiday blogging gig, Greetings.ca. What's great about this new gig, at least for me, is that so much of my favorite cooking is holiday based, and now I get to blog about the holidays AND blog about the recipes. How excellent is that?

The first holiday I've gotten to blog about at both places is Purim. Purim is a Jewish holiday that I'll be writing about here sometime this weekend, so stay tuned. But I finally get to share my favorite hamentaschen recipe, and what I include in my mishloach manot (gift baskets). What a gift for me!

Mostly I'll be writing about baking, because that's my area of expertise. Oh yeah, I cook every freaking night, but I hardly ever use a recipe. It's so rare for me to know how to explain how I cook things that I wouldn't be the best recipe writer. I never do things the same way twice! That's what makes fun in the kitchen for me, being inventive. And it must work because not only do my kids like my cooking (as much as the Girl likes any food, which isn't that much), but their friends literally beg to stay for dinner. A friend the Girl had here tonight told me right in front of her mom that I was a much better cook than her mom. I'd love to hear the conversation they had on the ride home!

Anyhow, check out the new blog and, I know this is hard to believe, there is one more in the works. A year ago I just wanted to earn a bit blogging. Right now, I feel like I'm finally reaching my goal, and it feels great!

I tend to cruise food blogs a few days a week, Margalit. I like recipe books more but blogs are good too. I check out Redbeard's list of new food blogs on FoodPorn at least once a week.

Michele sent me over to go look at your new blog.
