I pretend to know about food. I give myself a lot of credit because I watched seven seasons of Top Chef. But really, I'm the food virgin. There's a whole list I could tick off consisting of foods I have never ventured to try. Heck, I'm well into college and I just tried lamb, mussels, oysters, calamari, sea bass, and pork belly this year. Okay, these are all pretty bourgeois-y, but tomatoes are also relatively new, as well as, grapefruit, and brussel sprouts. Still, I can pretend like I have an impressive palette, right?
For awhile now, I've had a desire to start a food blog. Probably for about 2 years. I like photographing food. I like eating food. I like the experience of dining, and trying new places....though not necessarily new foods. Over these two years, I have managed to convince people to join the food blog project, but alas, it never quite gets off the ground. The blog is made, but no posts. There is a name, and the rough sketch of a concept, but no content. So...I've lost my enthusiastic initial volunteers.
Kelley and I have been throwing around the food blog idea casually all year long. Then we became SWAMPED with all things school and Plan II and Young Life, etc. But finally, over a dinner at Uchiko during Austin Restaurant Week and then a later dinner at a Austin food trailer, Three Little Pigs, I think we may be looking at a real future food blog.
Three Little PigsYep....Kelley & I will be giving you food advice, recipes, critiques. It will all be very silly.

So while this post doesn't provide you with any critique of our visit to the food trailer, I hope the photos serve as an enticing teaser of what's to come. Food food food :) We will probably kick off in July or August, so stay tuned.
