Hi, My Name Is Stacey and I Am A Food Addict

They always say the first road to recovery is admitting you have a problem.......well, today is the day I dread. Today is the day I go through all my food magazines and rip out the pages I have earmarked and then throw the rest of the mag away. Tomorrow is special garbage pick up. UGH!. I love my magazines and could look at them over and over until my retinas burn out and my index finger bleeds. But it is out w/the old to make room for the new.

Rachael Ray

Bon Appetit

Cooking Light

Cooks Illustrated

Donna Hay

Martha Stewart

Fine Cooking

Food & Wine

Gourmet

And my newest baby~

La Cucina Italiana

I really hope I can get all this ripping and sorting of recipes done before the garbage man comes tomorrow. Before I know it, the fall issues will be arriving.

I know I have been MIA lately, but I just have not felt like blogging. I haven't felt like thinking or processing thoughts. I personally hate summer time and get "BLAH" during the summer. My creative juices start flowing again usually in August in anticipation of Fall coming, which is my absolute favorite time of the year. Perhaps a burning pile of autumn leaves will ignite a fire under my ass and reinspire me to start blogging regularly come this Fall.


*Funny side note~ My ooompa loompa was so used to watching me lick my index finger as I went through my cooking mags that he now licks his index finger regularly when turning pages. He is 4.

Thanks for the explanation. I have wondered what happened to you. I always click on to your blog through my Aunt Lora. Sweet little 4-year-old! They love to mimic momma and daddy!

sooo glad you are back! I cant imagine going through all my magazines! Just curious, which is your favorite? Good luck.. cant wait to see what the burning pile of autumn leaves inspire you to blog about!

hmmm Favorite mag is probably Cooks Illustrated. Least favorite is probably Rachael Ray...quite frankly I don't know why I still get it. Some of her food is just
"garbage" thrown together....it is like she is grasping for recipe straws. And I don't care who you are.....ain't nobody making a meal in 30 minutes in reality. she is a lying beotch!

Welcome back Stacey. I missed you!

welcome home!!! i just went thru my southern livings and did the same thing; big difference--you will probably actually look at what you rip out, while my scraggly pages will sit in the file while i de-bone the rotisserie chicken...oh, well, i can live vicariously thru you and your kitchen adventures...

YAY! You're back. Don't ever leave me again.

Well amen and hallelujah, Stacey's back!!! You scared me there; I thought you were really gonna give it up for good. I'm glad you couldn't stay away!!
