Instead of a "Real" Post

I've just come down off a very busy few weeks involving a considerable amount of research analysis, a side of Power Point and a Very Important first birthday (Dixon got to celebrate his big day on three separate occasions. Exciting for him - more cake! - exhausting for me.)

Thanks to all my "real world" obligations, I've totally neglected the blog. I've been thinking about it, though. In lieu of actual, thoughtful posts, I'm going to take the easy way out with a roundup:
  • The Food & Entertainment issue of Style magazine hits the shelves today, complete with a feature that highlights 15 Baltimore food bloggers, including yours truly. It's a great list of blogs - my ego is fluttering at being included. It's nice to see the Baltimore blogging community getting some props.
  • In between Power Point nightmares and birthday party plans, I've been making some plans of my own. It's still rolling around in my head and very vague, but I've decided to try my hand at blending business and pleasure. For now, that means doing some research into what people think and how they behave when it comes to food. To start, I've developed a survey focusing on these questions. If you'd like to help me out, click here and you'll be directed to the survey form. It's not terribly long, but will probably take you about 15-20 minutes. I'm willing to share the data I collect with anybody who participates, and I'll certainly be writing about what I learn here. Thanks in advance!
  • In other news, I'm a terrible person. Forever ago, I was sent a free copy of Tom Kime's book Street Food to review. And I still haven't gotten a chance to really sit down with it. I can say, though, that I think it's a beautiful book and I love the combination of story and recipe. Hopefully soon I'll get a chance to delve deeper and maybe even actually cook something from it.
I've got some other thoughts brewing...but I'm going to let them sit. Now that I've got the birthday behind me (I swear - possibly the biggest drawback of knowing how to cook is feeling that you should always cook, even when it's brunch for 40), I've got all kinds of time to blog. Well, some time at least...
