For the past few days I've sat in front of my new laptop and tried to write. My brain was fried and the words refused to appear on the screen. I questioned my ability to take the random (and sometimes scary) thoughts in my head and try to make them make sense to my readers. I even had to question if I had a true love for food.
Today I ran across a post on The Amateur Gourmet and I realized that my blog was boring. I wasn't being myself. I really don't know who I was trying to be, but the content that was previously on here was PURE DE GARBAGE ( I think that means junk in French).
So I decided that Arizona and maybe even the world deserve better. So ready or not, here comes the real Foodie from Phoenix. I'm a mom, who stays at home because she has an unknown autoimmune disease that the doctors have not been able to cure. I volunteer my time by planning events for 300 plus residents in our apartment community and by being the creative director at my local church. Finally, I love to cook. My ultimate dream is to own a bed and breakfast much like the Gaslight Inn here in Glendale ( You gotta go, the food and entertainment is extraordinary). But times are hard right now so I don't get to do much REAL COOKING. Mostly I just gather some things I have in the pantry and hope for the best.
Tonight I made a Trio of beans and Italian sausage soup. I wish I would have thought to snap a photo before the family gobbled it down but I can show you what a wonderful job my son did of cleaning the pot before slinking back to his room. Thanks Quon!
What a clean Wolfgang Puck Pot!
A few spoonfuls of my Trio of Beans and Italian Sausage Soup.
So this is me, the REAL Foodie from Phoenix. Until...
