I know I am not a great writer because my work sucks during the time of sadness and sickness. The truly great writers thrive on pain, and I am just the opposite. I need to be happy to write. Maybe it's the genre. Food is just not dark or disturbing enough. It doesn't make you question what's wrong with society or your life. Food politics might be the only food related topic that will get you down, but it's really not my thing. That's why there hasn't been anything new on Beyond Salmon for the last week. Jason was sick, then I was sick and had to reschedule 2 classes not to get my students sick. Things are finally starting to get better. Jason was back to work yesterday and he brought me these purple poppies to cheer me up. Aren't they beautiful! I've never seen purple poppies before. I put them on my desk next to the picture of us and our baby and they made me smile all day :)
And this time, I have a happier excuse for not having a blog post. I was working on a story for Culinate. I can't tell you what it's about since it isn't published yet. But here are my recent published stories that you might like to explore:
Fat Fads -- it’s not just about whether it’s good for you
No more tears -- mastering onion slicing and dicing
Old Wives’ Fish Tales -- True or False? You should always cook fish the day you buy it.
