Food Notes

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas! I took a bit of an unplanned break from blogging, and while it was relaxing, it’s nice to be writing again. I’ll be catching up on quite a few posts over the next few days.

  • I could not help but laugh and relate to Marty Chan’s account of attempting to demonstrate his dim sum prowess to friends, published this week in the Journal.
  • Well-known Edmonton blogger Lex Culinaria wrote that she has relocated to Langley, BC. Her posts will also begin to focus more on recipes, as she raises her second child. Best of luck Lyn!
  • Via Brulee Blog, a suburb of Des Moines, Iowa is using garlic salt to de-ice their roads.
  • There are a ton of year-end roundups out there, but I like the scope of Chow’s Year in Food 2008.
  • Mack, being the thoughtful person that he is, made me a customized calendar for Christmas, featuring sixty of the food photos that we have taken over the last two years, food-related quotes, and important dates to remember. It will hang proudly in my office at work! He posted about his experience making the calendar here.

  • As is tradition in our family, Christmas Eve meant a potluck with family friends. My Mum made her famous breadsticks, honed from a recipe she now has memorized. There was turkey, and then some.

  1. You can send your mom over to my house to make breadsticks any time.

    I’m so glad to hear Lex is back, I had emailed wondering where she was!

  2. When I saw Marty Chan’s article, I also thought he wrote it with me in mind! And then the next day we went for dim sum and I think I could do ok. Happy New Year!

  3. I also loved the Chan article, brought a few laughs to my morning routine.

    The calendar is such a great present!

  4. CourtJ – I told my Mum, and she laughed, heh.

    Violet – Happy New Year to you too!

    Raidar – I agree, the calendar is awesome.
