2010 Year in Review

This year was full of activity, not always the trendiest or fanciest of restaurants (though we did okay), but nevertheless full of excitement. Looking back, it was a ton of fun...

As you well know, the end of 2009 brought a new member to our household, and with that, a long blogging hiatus. I came back with a bang during Snowpocalypse II in February.

Soon after, I preached a little on food philosophy ... I'm rather certain it will be a college major soon. Damn, just a few years too late.

In March, we inched our way back into foodie-dom with celebratory meals at J&G Steakhouse and Blue Duck Tavern, and I tried my first of many food trucks to come.

I, of course, indulged in the ubiquitous cupcakes and burgers around town.  As is the case, I suspect, with most new parents, we also fell into a takeout routine. We had some bad meals, but some very good ones as well.

There were rants, again, and again, and again. I also started some post series; food as memories (only two so far) and lunch liaisons.

I did A LOT of cooking at home!

There was the big trip to Chicago, with a ton of eating involved, including stops at Topolobampo and Cibo Matto.

I finally completed a couple of Google doc projects, my NoVa Restaurant Guide and Food Trend Tracker.

We made it through 21 courses at VOLT, while we (Bryan Voltaggio included) sweated out the MSU-ND game.

And, as the year wore on, the blog became more and more personal, and I realized that its format must change. New things are to come in 2011. Stay tuned, and thank you all for reading. Love to you all and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
