One Year

It’s been a year since I started this blog. I feel it’s a good time to evaluate what I have posted and where I would like to take this blog.

Looking back at my posts I like the realness in them. I write what’s on my mind and I write what I want. I like the recipes and the questions I ask.

What I have questioned with this blog is if I write too much. Like I just need to be told to, “Shut the F up.” Like I have too many questions, too many ideas, or views… I can’t be the only one with the questions I have. I can’t be the only one that struggles with diets. I can’t be the only one that is sort-of weird. I can’t be the only one that wants to write stories from their life. I know I’m not the only one, but are there people around here that feel that way?

I question if I should sell out somewhat (to myself) and get more professional photos and a more professional looking blog. Do more home cook recipes and restaurant reviews. You know, come over to the center a little bit to be pleasing to a larger group of people…

I feel I have some good ideas for future posts. I want to look into unconventional meat: rabbits, pheasants, geese, bison, lamb, goat, duck. Stuff that I can get at local small farms. Daniel, dude from the The Perennial Plate, did such an awesome job his first season (And second season). I could not even being to compete with him. Most of my ideas come from his video series. I would love to buy a whole lamb carcass. Go to a bison farm. Catch a wild bird with a net… dude is awesome. I even called the rabbit farm he visited a year ago to get a tour and to buy a few bunnies. LTD farm, where I got my turkey, was one of his videos. And on top of all that, homeboy can cook. He ain’t no home cook! 

Other ideas! I have to do a Laarb redemption, no question!… More foraging… More homecook stuff… Interviews. I would like to do a interview, but I don’t know how to get it on the blog- I have very little experience interviewing… Chicken n’ waffle party…

I would love to do some illegal stuff too! Like trying to buy raw milk… Sell pizzas straight out’ my kitchen. I was thinking this next summer I could make 20 pizzas from scratch and sell them one night for cheap. I would need help from a few of you. By helping me make the pizzas or coming over and buying them. I really want to encourage the informal economy when it comes to food… I want to try some guerrilla gardening stuff. I would need help with that also…

Grow more medicinal plants…

Doing some sort-of fast. Like a local only, or FORAGE AND GROW only fast- Thanks, Novella Carpenter! She does illegal things and swears! Her and Anthony Bourdain are my two biggest influences for this blog; FYI…

So I have ideas… We will just have to see how things go. I just don’t know if my ideas are too much, or if they are worth trying to do. I am not trying to be a clean, professional, appeal to a large group blog. I am slightly different and I am seeing I need some encouragement, but I’m excited for 2012.

  1. Congratulations on 1 year of blogging! It's a huge accomplishment to hang in there. Don't they say most blogs never make it to the 20th post? I wouldn't be to hard on yourself about coming to the center or trying to fit into someone else's local food box. I love The Perennial Plate also, but think he's on the planet to do something different with his food then I am. Being slightly different, and being excited for 2012 are both good things. I look forward to seeing your work in year 2!
