I'm trying to keep my business, my triplets, and my waistline under control. I excel at one of those, fail at another one of those, and one is a work in progress. Which is which is day dependant.

Some blogging musings...

I've been thinking about this whole blogging thing and I have two ideas for you to ponder. Please leave a comment below or email me and tell me what you think. First, starting a blog just for my RAS recipe and cooking-related stuff. This started life as a supposed foodie blog but ended up as a mommy blog. So should I move the recipes to another location? Secondly, I want to start a group blog (with several contributors, like here and here). Specifically a blog written by people in "mixed marriages" - Australians married to Americans. Something I've noticed over time is that even though we speak the same language...well, we don't. There is a cultural divide between the two countries, Krispy Kreme not withstanding. I thought it would be interesting to have a blog about North Americans living Down Under, and vice versa. Because I didn't grow up here, there is so much I've learned along the way - including how totally horrible the milkshakes are (sorry, Louisa, I had to mention it) and how totally wonderful the people are. I am sure that is also true for the Aussies displaced to the US. So - anyone out there think this is a good idea? I'd have to recruit some people to contribute (and they would have to be witty, entertaining, and generally as fab as moi). So - what do you think? I even have a clever name picked out! Leave comments/opinions/good quotes/rantings below - see that little lit up comment on the bottom right corner? Click on it.

Are you surprised I am the first one to make a comment???!!! I think the group blog is a great idea - I might even get to chat to you more often with your highly erratic timetables. As a member of a "mixed marriage" who has spent time "over there" (US) and "over here", I feel that I am in a unique position to be able to give my unwanted point of view to anyone who will listen so COUNT ME IN!!! On the question as to whether to move your recipes and cooking related stuff - NOOOOOO - I already have too many bookmarks on this computer. I do have one request though - can you put some savoury recipes that kidlings would love that are easy to cook for the culinarily challenged (like Porcupine Meatballs - thanks Orly if you are reading)? Hope to speak to you soon.
