It’s been a long time…I shouldnta leftchu…without a dope blog to step to


Yeah that’s right, I just quoted Timbaland/Baby Guurl. However, this well-worn bit of hip-hoppia aptly describes the way I feel about abandoning this space, leaving my hungry readers with nothing to feast on. It was never far from my mind though, this little blog of mine. Every time I sat down at the end of a long, arduous work day, the first thing I thought was always “Oh, I should totally update my blog.” Of course, various things (aka LIFE) inevitably drove me to distraction and I callously and indifferently let my writing fall by the wayside.

Happily, this does not mean that FDL has been forsaken as well! It is in fact alive and kickin, and we have visited both MK and The Publican in the meantime, feasting on perfectly seared scallops, shortribs, softshell crab, and spicy, flavorful seafood stew. I will give both these visits their rightful due in future posts, because I feel as if I’ve given them short shrift and not paid them the attention they deserve. The Publican in particular is a bastion of good eatin’. The place worships every single part of the pig, right down to the hairs on their chinny chin chins. I have to give it props for that, what with the recent SWINE FLU panic and all.

I won’t even get into why I can’t ever eat there again, though. Let’s just say one of the line cooks there is no longer a huge fan of mine. Sorry Chef.

Anyway, I’m diving headfirst back into this after having been away for so long. Coming up in August is the wedding of one of my dearest friends and, knowing my inclination towards eating mass quantities, she has let me in on the menu ahead of time and let me just tell you, it’s a frickin doozy. She swore me to secrecy and because I’m true to my word, I won’t share it with you at this time, but I will say this: Diet. Starts. Tomorrow.

Respeck.
