It’s 3:02AM EST time and I’m sitting here watching tv marathons and movies on iTunes and Netflix. I just finished off a bowl of homemade nachos and guacamole and I’m about to go warm up some more spicy pulled pork I made earlier. Has this become my life? This could be the wine talking, or the wandering mind thinking… but this is definitely not where I thought I would be… a year ago, two, three, five, ten? What has happened?
It’s funny how things work. Weight gain made me sad. But I gained weight cuz I’ve been happy. But the weight gain makes me not want to move… so while I eat less, I move less. I’m still not happy with my body. But that could just be my eating disorder talking. Always in recovery, never fully recovered.
You guys have been with me through so many ups and downs and yet you remain loyal. So much gratitude. Love, lust, heartbreaks. Breakdowns and highs. Parties and mournings.
The past year I have been basically mostly living in Taiwan and I’ve forgotten my love for cooking, almost. I stopped caring a lot about things I used to be so passionate about and I have no real explanation for it… but it’s recently sparked up again.
I cooked duck the other day. And today I had a pulled pork burrito/taco night with pomegranate guacamole, spicy mango pico de gallo with roasted garlic and corn and an extremely spicy salsa verde… along with some yummy gooey blue corn chip nachos. I started to feel alive again. I started a cooking idea journal/notebook again…. mainly b/c I was planning to cook for C on his birthday… and while things got in the way, I still got MAD IDEAS to play on.
SO…. I have ideas of doing supper parties. [And have talked with a chef friend or two about doing pop ups] – I want to, once I move out, host supper/dinner parties, first once a month, and then possibly once a week. People can BYOB and tell me their diets…. or just leave it up to me. Hopefully soon after team, up with chefs and cool wine people.
I have so many ambitions and ideas… I want to write, I want to travel, I want to cook, I want to go back to school…. and I want to film it all. I have a secret thing about wanting to be in front of a camera.
So maybe this is how this blog is evolving. It went from food diary to healthy eating and recipes to eating out and traveling extravagantly …. and then just personal…. me finding my inner peace…. healing and now this. My lifestyle. Ever evolving.
This blog is now: Finding the real Miss Tiffie.
Please join me in my journey.
