Following with the theme of ‘because I don’t have enough to do with my life’ comes Almost Frugal Food! That’s right, I’ve launched a food blog.
I love food, both eating it and cooking it and I find that I would like to write about it more. Only thing is, Almost Frugal is a frugality blog, and I don’t want to move away from that. Hence Almost Frugal Food.
I plan to talk about food the same way I talk about frugality and personal finance: from the perspective of someone who enjoys discovering new things, but is certainly no expert. Not to mention the little bit of cuisine franÃ§aise thrown in for good measure! After all, what would a food blog be without talking about French food, even from an American perspective (you’ve all seen Ratatouille, right?).
I also want to hear about your favorite recipes and regional traditions so there will be an ongoing recipe exchange: Friday is for Food. We will feature your favorite recipe on your blog- frugal, fast, family-friendly, French or fun (or any other F adjective you can think of!). I have some fantastic bloggers lined up already; the pictures and recipes they have up are mouth-watering. Make sure to visit them when you’re struggling to find ideas for dinner. If you want to participate in Friday is for Food, just let me know.
And to kick things off, there’s going to be a contest. A yummy contest. With things to eat and drink. Yummy things. (If my family doesn’t eat them first!) That will be next month (September 2008), so stay tuned.
Hop on over and check it out. We’ll be talking leftovers and finger food, authentic French cuisine and salsa toppings and much, much more. Don’t miss out, you can even subscribe!
