Jeremy & Julia

So, the other day I mentioned to my friend Craig that my wife was trying to get me to do a food blog.  He asked if I was going to call it Jeremy & Julia.  For those that don't get the reference, there's a movie called Julie & Julia.  I hadn't seen it when he asked me that.  I subsequently rented it.  It was worth it.

If you're a foodie (Foodie:  "Although the two terms are sometimes used interchangeably, foodies differ from gourmets in that gourmets are epicures of refined taste who may or may not be professionals in the food industry, whereas foodies are amateurs who simply love food for consumption, study, preparation, and news.  Gourmets simply want to eat the best food, whereas foodies want to learn everything about food, both the best and the ordinary, and about the science, industry, and personalities surrounding foodFor this reason, foodies are sometimes viewed as obsessively interested in all things culinary. There is also a general feeling in the culinary industry that the term gourmet is outdated. 'Foodie-ism' is a modern, popular way of engaging food culture for the general population."-Wikipedia) at all, you should watch it.  You'll like it.

So, yea, I'm doing a food blog, but it's not called Jeremy & Julia.  And I'm not going to spend the next year making all 500+ recipes from Julia Child's 1961 Mastering the Art of French Cooking.

That's what I'm not doing.  I'm not completely sure what I am doing.
