Just a quick note to let you know that tomorrow Jennifer Ward Pelar will be posting about the letter Y for A-Z Food.
Jennifer has 3 blogs:
Cook Me a Story is a blog about her culinary adventures. She and writer Michelle Johnson cook together once a week and write about the experience!
Military Zero Waste is about the environment and how she and her enlisted husband are working to reduce their footprint.
GI Crockpot is recipes for slow cookers. Jennifer even bakes carrot cake in her crock pot!
What I really like about Jennifer’s blogs is her straight ahead, tell-it-like-it-is style. If a recipe flops she tells you, complete with pictures! Likewise, if it’s a success. The food blogs are her cooking journal, the Zero Waste blog her eco-journal. It shares one military family’s efforts to make less of an impact on the environment.
The blogs put a personal face on that big machine we call ‘the military’. They make me step out of my anti-war war stance and say wait a minute Alison, there’s more to the military than guns. Besides, I had lots of friends when I was growing up who were military brats. They shared the transient lifestyle my family had adopted as a church family. Jen reminds me of those friends.
Jen is one of the most dedicated readers of http://www.alisonamazed.wordpress.com (there are a few others who read almost every post!) and when she first started commenting on my posts I could barely keep up with her. When I started writing about food I never expected such an enthusiastic response.
Look for a post about her food tomorrow, Y=Your Food. Comments most welcome. Afterall, this series has been about food and as Emily told us in X-Rated Epicurean Delights “…everyone has their own individual appetites.”
I’m a British Army brat myself, so I’ll be looking for her post!
Hey Gil! Great to have you comment! I’m sure Jen will appreciate knowing another army brat is reading. 🙂 A
I do appreciate that! 🙂
I’m just now reading this. Things have been so busy with the move prep. That was really kind to give my blogs a plug! I’d love for you to guest post for me. You could write about anything environmental in any country. You have a wealth of knowlegde and experience. I know you could teach me and my readers a lot about what you’ve learned along the way. Just let me get settled. The next couple weeks are going to be C-c—razy.
But I’ll be back to haunt you and get you to write for me in August….if you’d be so kind!
Will do. I have another guest blog invitation I have to follow up on. Good luck with the move and I’ll look forward to reading your posts and hearing from you when your settled.
