Blogging ennui..

I have not posted for a while for a number of reasons. Work has been unfeasibly busy and I have had a cold, both of which conspire to make me want to do nothing more than sit and surf the net whilst watching Aqua Teen Hunger Force. And before you ask- meatwad.

We have also done more than our usual fair share of eating out due to the impromtu trip to Manchester and the long awaited trip to London. Given the current economic situation in the country it seems somewhat guache to harp on about the meals out that I have had whilst a fair proportion of the country are having to tighten their belts. Having said that, we knew we were going to London eight months ago, and that we would be doing a fair bit of eating out so saved up accordingly, but I still feel guilty. That and the fact we don't have a kitchen at the moment also means that we are eating out more, out of necessity, when not eating microwave soup. As usually happens when you do a thing too much it loses it's appeal and that's how it feels at the moment. I can't summon up the enthusiasm to write up London, which is a shame, but all I can think of is cooking my own meals at home over the next week or two.

What's that I hear oh yes it's the world's smallest Violin..

It is, however, time for me to update my blog roll
Wandering Eater and The girl who ate everything are two New York based food blogs whose owners posses appetites which put me to shame. What I want to know is why they don't weigh as much as a bus. Seriously, these girls can put it away.
From this side of the Atlantic we have Lynne's food blog, Rock Cakes and Gastronomy Domine all of whom are inspiring me with their baking and culinary exploits in the kitchen.

Thanks for the mention and link, I've been enjoying your blog for a while now and have only recently started posting comments. As a Glesga girl, I like seeing my stamping ground covered so comprehensively.
