Alter Ego: Guest Food Blogger #3

The following is an excerpt taken from my recent turn as guest food blogger for A Ruby Reduction, published 18 May 2012.

It’s funny how our taste preferences have a tendency to change or evolve with age. If I were to sit down little nine year old Jamie and ask him to name his three favourite vegetables, I can almost guarantee the list would not include broccoli, cauliflower, or Brussels sprouts. However, 25 years later and rarely a day goes by in which I’m not enjoying a combination of all three.

My mother must be so proud.

(Wait a minute. If I could travel back in time and meet the me from 1987, am I really going to waste that ability by asking him what his favourite vegetables are? Of course, not. I’m slapping a copy of Gray’s Sports Alamanac in his hand and telling him to not put some money on the Cubbies).

Happy Valentine’s Day?

Photo courtesy of our friend, the immensely talented, Khoa Tran.

Here’s to me falling asleep on the couch during our first married Valentine’s Day.

I only wish I was joking.

Anyway, I did say this site would feature a number of works-in-progress. I just didn’t realize I would be one of them. Yikes.

I would be remiss if I did not give credit to our friend, Khoa, for the accompanying photo. We selected a non-traditional song for our first dance (Joy Ride by The Killers) and I think Khoa captured it beautifully.

So, do yourself a favour and check out Khoa’s Flickr gallery (khoa_sus2’s photostream).
