Like every other insomniac in the world, I've been thinking about starting a blog. I've already re-read all the Vonnegut AND all the Stephenson we own and traffic is light on Facebook at this time of the night. So I need another distraction for the wee hours of the morning.

At any rate, the hubby was explaining anagrams to our daughter and came across an anagram website. When he typed in my name, 2 great anagrams were returned. One of them was 'to pinch a pastrami' and the other 'a misanthropic pat'. If I were in a band, I would have a hard time choosing between the two. Probably 'To Pinch A Pastrami' but I'm not in a band and not likely to be. But I do like food. I like to cook it, play with it and eat it. And when I heard this anagram I immediately muttered "Damn!" Someone or something is telling me that I should get off my ass and actually create the food blog I had been thinking about for the past year.

So yes reader, I think this is going to be yet another food blog. And one without much distinction I suppose. Well, I will probably blog only when insomnia strikes - which is, upon reflection, probably not very 'distinctive'. It may be about something related to food, food biz, foodology, whatever. Also not very distinctive. Any recipes found here will have been posted hours after I cooked it or ate it and alcohol may have been part of the creative process. So recipes may need to be viewed as 'approximations' of what actually was created/served/eaten. Again, probably not very distinctive given the gluttonous nature of most chefs/foodies. Hmmm. It appears this will be another un-marketable, self indulgent blog without much merit or distinction. Or maybe it's just a psycho-therapeutic exercise. Either way, I'm hungry. It's time for the 4:00 a.m. PB&J....
