“For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning."
Here's to new beginnings, here's to the ends that must come before they can be born. Every new year is the opportunity for a fresh start, the promise of another chance waiting for you to grasp it, the untold excitement of blessings yet to even be imagined. This year, I'm skipping the huge resolutions of the kind that get thrown aside before they even look worn (or does that only happen to me?) and I'm opting to just tweak the beautiful life I already have, paring down the superfluous to make a bit of room for more of the things I love. Like these two men of mine:
There's also a project that has been simmering in my head for several years now, and I think that this is the time to go for it. It combines my love of cooking and food with a fascination with other cultures and lives around the globe. Every two weeks, I'll be cooking from a different world-wide cuisine, starting with Argentina and ending with Zambia or Zimbabwe. I may make a giant feast of any given cuisine, and post all of my recipes at once, or I may do things in bits and pieces- a street vendor snack here, a classic side dish there. It will depend on so many different factors, like the foods I choose to make and the way the rest of life is flowing.
I'm not becoming a professional blogger, or looking to add a lot of stress to my already somewhat harried to do list. This is simply a way to combine some of the things I love and (hopefully?) am somewhat good at- good food, sharing with words, and the amazing place that is the wide, wide world we live in. You can follow along on Facebook or Pinterest, and add in with your experiences, opinions, and thoughts in the comment section.
There's such a lot of world to eat, so bon appetit!
