As with any dinner party, I like to offer something to munch on while I finish up the main courses. I am busy cooking up a post for you on my Sunday night dinner party in honor of my cousin's recent engagement and birthday and just because. Happy Birthday Erica and CONGRATULATIONS too!!!
And while your top your baguette with some roasted bell peppers, medley of olives, kalmata hummus, smoked salmon or avocado cilantro hummus from my antipasta platter, let me also tell you my game plan for the blog over the next few weeks.
First I will give you a rather detailed post of the dinner on Sunday which consisted of a few different dishes. These were taken from a few different sources as well.
Next, I have a goal. And maybe by sharing it with you, I can ACTUALLY accomplish it. I hate to loose face. I am HOPING to offer only a few short posts each week as I need to direct my energies toward the upcoming Stationery Show in New York. So between now and May 22nd, I hope to be working more on that and less so on this blog. (On a side note: If ANYONE knows ANYTHING about setting up a trade show with NO money (virtually) or about the National Stationery Show in NY, PLEASE share any insight, advice or wisdom. The show is May 17-21st. Thanks!!!)
Now I do not want to abandon you or my happy little blog entirely for a month. Which comes to my third point. I am NOT happy with my current shape. I have gained since I stopped breast feeding, just over a year ago and am reluctant to buy clothes for my current state. In the past the easiest and best option for me has been to cut out the sugar and flour etc... Basically- low carb.
So the next few weeks I hope to keep both you and myself interested by creating interesting low carb meals that satisfy. It will be a challenge and I hope you don't mind hanging on for the ride.
For those of you who are ultra worried about nutrition, I do eat fruit and will occasionally eat oatmeal or healthy grains at breakfast. And for those of you worried about lack of some hedonism, I will drink a glass of wine from time to time and I will have a bite of chocolate. I have to have some indulgence now and then.
The table is set. Just finishing up the menu.
