Introducing "Food For Thought"

I’m a food lover. If my husband wants to treat me real nice, he takes me out to dinner at a fun place. The highlight of our recent anniversary trip to an all-inclusive resort in Mexico was that it allowed us the opportunity to try lots of new and exquisite gourmet food (the warm beach and relaxing atmosphere weren’t bad either). I love to try new foods (most of the time – sometimes I really want what I know is good so I won’t be disappointed, especially if I rarely get to have it). In fact, I’m even paid for my services as a taste tester from time to time! Additionally, I love to try new restaurants (same qualifier applies here as with new foods, though).

I love to find something new that’s just amazing and then recommend it to everyone I know! So I’m finally going to put that into good use. In this blog you will find reviews of food and restaurants. This is not a new innovation, obviously. But sometimes, don’t you just want to hear from a real person about real food, both inexpensive and upscale? I want to be that person for you! I love conversing with people about food likes and dislikes and hearing about new restaurants to discover. So feel free to pass along your recommendations for me as well. If you have a delicious recipe or even something you found in the grocery store that you now can’t live without, pass it on. If you love a certain restaurant, don’t stop there – tell me what you love about it and especially the specific dish you’ve found to be so amazing. And I’ll pass along my thoughts after I’ve tried it out.

Note to readers: I do not love bread or cilantro, so know that my opinion on such items will be severely biased!

  7. Gross. Subway is nasty (as you'll read in a future post). The smell makes me gag. But you already knew that, Amy Jean!
