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!
