I’m doing it! I’m getting back in the saddle!
Not that saddle. I don’t ride horses. But don’t I look like I could? This photo was taken for my hometown visit when I filmed the 3rd season of the Ultimate Recipe Showdown. They stuck me on a thoroughbred and filmed me trotting around, while I held on for dear life. They never used the footage (I’d love to get my hands on it), as I probably looked like someone who had never been on a horse before, which is because I’d never been on a horse before! Not unless you count those sweet, sleepy trail horses at camp. They wanted me to look very Kentucky. Kind of like when they came for the 2nd season and wanted me to look very California. They were disappointed to find out that I don’t surf or play beach volleyball. Anyhoot, I’m getting back in the BLOG saddle.
It makes me a wee saddy to think of all the fun experiences I’ve had and all the delicious things I’ve eaten and NOT blogged about in the past several months. My apologies. I’ll go back in time and relive it all in some future posts because there is some blog-worthy eating and traveling I’ve done. Besides, I’m up 6 pounds since last September and I need to go back and figure out what caused this mayhem.
Porter and I (Porter is my new suitcase; he and I have become quite the travel buddies, so I thought I should start calling him by name) are off on another trip tomorrow. He hasn’t been out and about for a few weeks and I think we’re both looking forward to stretching our travel legs. I’m looking forward to meeting a lot of new food peeps, eating my way through a new city, and perhaps catching some sun. Can’t divulge too much yet, but I can’t wait to share the details!
In the mean time, here’s another photo of me and my girl, Flylight. I wish she was mine, but I can’t even fathom taking care of a dog, let alone a horse. And you know these Kentucky horses have some high standards of living. Maybe I’ll consider becoming an equestrian when we can afford all the fancy things a horse needs. Then we’ll invite the camera crew back and give them some usable footage.
