Old Favorites, Part One: The Way We Were

(No, we aren't robots. Just a little bit on autpilot.)

We here in the OPF Household have been revisiting old favorites lately. Before this blog happened, I would find a new recipe, make it, and then if we liked it, I would make it another 3 or 4 times. Not all in a row, mind you, but over the next few weeks. At that point, I'd have learned something else, and we'd be eating it over and over until the next New Thing came along. It was a trend, sure, but I was ok with it. (Until Dave complained, anyway.)

And then the blog... and the desire/need to produce something new and different and yummy on a regular basis - and we both LOVE it! I love having this giant sheaf of recipes I can personally vouch for.

However, when we got back from vacation, all I wanted to make and eat were things we were already in love with... a true Coming Home, if you will. We had the steamed halibut, the chicken and polenta with fruity sauce, those yummy blueberry muffins, and we're having the swiss chard and ricotta roll tomorrow night!

Anyway, I have a slew of tasty, amusing things to show you. Some new foods (and non-south beach diet, for a change), and some old, but they turned out a different way... which was a little weird.

For now, I'm off to bed. G'night!

I know exactly what you are talking about Katie. Since I started my blog, I almost never make the same thing twice. I have started to get complaints that I have been neglecting "old favorites"...
