One Year Anniversary of Obsessing About Food Even More than Usual

Today is our 1 year blogiversary.  Foodiversary.  Cookiversary.  Recipeversary.  I’m done.

15 years of friendship 1 year of blogging

Sue and I have written 129 posts and have had 100 million conversations about food, which is about 40 more conversations about food than we used to have.  I remember fondly the days when we talked about feelings and boys and stuff.  I’m kidding, Sue and I still talk about feelings, of course.  Just mostly our feelings about sandwiches.

We’re really happy and grateful that anyone is reading this.  It’s been a fantastic year and we want to thank everyone for continuing to read about our triumphs (Sue) and our misadventures (me).  To celebrate this day, we would like to offer you two things.  The first is a selection of conversations from an ongoing post we’ve been writing for a year entitled “The Things We Talk About That Are Not Food”.  We get such an almighty kick out of each other that we figured the world must experience our wit.  Also- to us, everything is about food.


Cat: Dude, I LOVE parentheses.  I mean, I really love them.

Sue: Me too!  They are the perfect way to insert something tongue-in-cheek.

Cat: Yeah!  How else do you put in a funny aside?

Sue: I know right?!  Also, Trader Joe’s has cinnamon cheese.  You should go get some and then get me some details.

Cat: That’s gross.  But also, what if it’s delicious?  I will buy some today.

Sue: Excellent.  Now, what should I make for dinner?


Sue: Are you there yet?

Cat: Did you just type that?

Sue: Yes.

Cat: Because I was just typing that exact same thing.  So I had the best ice cream in the whole world last night.

Sue: Was it lobster?

Cat: What? No.  It was caramel ice cream with a salted dark chocolate swirl.  SO good.  The chocolate was soft, kind of like fudge sauce.  And they were not shy with the sea salt.

Sue: Oh yum!

Cat: Yes.  It sounds hipstery and regular, but I am telling you, it was delicious.

Sue: Okay, so two things, one about ice cream, one not.


The second thing we’d like to share with you is our top 5 posts written by the other.

Cat’s favorite posts of Sue’s:

Fried Green Tomatoes – She doesn’t deep fry these!  I want them.

Chocolate Olive Oil Mousse – Sue is really, really good at desserts.  I’ve heard a lot about this mousse and I haven’t had it yet.  It is possible to mail refrigerated items, just saying.

Pork Chops with Maple Black Pepper Sauce – I almost chose the caveman steak instead of these, but I’ve had it (DELICIOUS.  Cook meat on coals immediately.)

Green Chili – I come from a red chili state, but I’m willing to accept the existence of green chili.  I wouldn’t trust anyone else to make it.

Diver Scallops with Linguine and Bacon – I have actually had this, but I want her to make it for me again because it’s flingin flangin amazing.  Sue cooks a scallop better than any I’ve ever had in a restaurant.

Sue’s favorite posts of Cat’s:

Falafel– Because Cat made these for me when she lived with me for one month and I have been thinking about them ever since.

Highball Pot Roast– Who wouldn’t like something with extra booze? My dad makes a wonderful pot roast but mine never turns out even when I use his recipe. If I trust anyone to successfully incorporate booze into meat it’s Cat.

Chicken Liver Pate– One time when I was visiting Portland, Cat and I had the most wonderful pate ever. I have full confidence hers is even better.

Coffee- Balsamic Flank Steak– My flank steak is always tough, Cat swears this is amazing. I think I’m going to have her make it for me this weekend. Plus she serves it with creamy Parmesan spinach. What’s not to love?

Shrimp and Grits– Yes, I am aware that there are no vegetables on my list, but I want to eat this too. Thanks to Cat I have learned to love grits (and polenta) and I am always up for a meal that includes them.

we were cool in middle school
