I am Christine and I am fickle. I’m also a lot of things.
On the whole?
I am fickle.
While I have always thought of this as a glaring character flaw, perhaps – just perhaps – it might actually work in my favour this time, on this blog. Part recipe archive, part travelogue, and part manifestation of my indulgence, I write about anything that I feel I must share with others. I’ll write about the sourdough I made today, or the blast that I had running around in the wind and rain in Cancale, or the cappuccino that saved my life. The topics I write about will seem haphazard, with no obvious trend most of the time. If you’re still around after the dizzying spin, I’ll invite you into my head. Everyone will be thrilled to meet you.
I love food, and like every other healthy relationship, it loves me too. Especially since it does wondrous things to my endorphins.
Now what is my deal with crunchy bottoms?
Me: “There’s something wrong with this cake.”
X:”It tastes perfectly fine to me.”
Me:”No! Something’s missing!”
X:”Hey it’s just a cake, you don’t have to get so worked up abou-”
Me: “It’s not just a cake! It’s…missing something!”
X:”Whipped cream? Chocolate shavings? Icing sugar?”
Me:”It…doesn’t have a crunchy bottom.”
I like crunchy things. I’ll eat tables and tables of crunchy things. I’d eat my keyboard if it didn’t look like it housed communities of E. coli.
I also tend to be overly dramatic.
This is a personal blog with personal opinions and preferences. We all have differing views on every possible thing, not to mention on food, so do take whatever I say with a pinch of salt, as with all other things. As always, I am infinitely interested in the varied perspectives and opinions that every individual has, and it is always a joy to be able to view something from another angle. So don’t hold back on the comments, it brings me much pleasure to hear from you.
I am not obliged to please anyone in any way, especially in my writing and expressed views but I will not, however, offend or insult intentionally. If I have done so in any way, do let me know so that I may clear the air and better understand where you are coming from.
