My name is Mary and I'm a foody. Yes, I actually *care* about who the next Food Network Star will be (Sorry Jen, you just didn't have what it took - I'm personally rooting for Shane or Kelsey - or maybe they can get married and make their own show together!). Honestly, I don't care this much about anything else on television. We don't even turn on the television all that much around here except to watch the Food Network. I don't know what I like about it so much. I don't think I've ever once actually tried anything I've learned by watching the Network.
I love to watch foody movies too and I am pleased to say that I have a little foody sidekick in John Michael. Tonight they re-aired the Extreme Makeover Home Edition that featured our riding program. We switched over to Food Network for the commercials and each time I flipped the channels, JM would snuggle up next to me and kiss me on the cheek. "I love you, Mom. I love to watch Food Network with you. Will you be a cashier in my Food Store?" He's so irresistible when he talks food to me! He's always in the kitchen with me - either watching or asking questions. He always wants to help and, of course, the helper always get to lick the beaters....Alton Brown is his hero he says - smart boy, Alton Brown knows *a lot* about food! And guess what his favorite movie is? The kindergarten version of a foody flick of course - Ratatouille. He could watch that every day. I'll have to introduce him to Babette's Feast soon.
I am thrilled to have a Feingold Foody Blog - Navigating the Chemical Free Highway - to introduce to the world. KT is a relatively new Feingold mom and her blog is *wonderful*. Please visit it and let me know what you think! I've linked her blog on the side bar so you can visit it whenever you come visit me!
Now that I've emerged from the Foody Closet, you'll probably be seeing a lot more foody links and posts. Of course I'll also be following the path to Mr. John's Food Store closely as the years unfold...
