Up until 2011 I was an innocent, fledgling geologist happily working through my Environmental Sciences Masters with a class of very lovely individuals.
Then Swan Lake came to the Grand Canal Theatre.
I really wanted to go but I couldn’t convince any of my friends of the deadliness of ballet, even Swan Lake. However, my eldest sister (Ais) just so happened to know someone who often frequented such haunts. That’s how I found myself a husband.
Another masters later and we were married.
Eight months later I started cooking Tomás.
Now Tom is six months old and there isn’t a sniff of geology work to be seen. So I find myself wondering how to make myself useful. I like to eat. This seems to be a skill I’ve always been undeniably talented at and running parallel to all of my scientific endeavors has always been a vein of gastronomy; baking, sharing and eating.
So I reckon I’m going to write a blog about food things and see what happens.
