Bourgeois as Hell

Has it really been a month since I last posted????

My brain is scattered in all different directions these days.  Work, an upcoming wedding, 2 friends just had babies (Welcome, Wilson and Ryter!), home renovation projects.

I mentioned last month that I had started this cleanse thing (the 28-Day Challenge over at Whole Living).  Well, because of it, my food/cooking obsession has reached a new level...I am cooking constantly and love every minute of it!

I've always had a "Why buy that, when I can make it?" attitude towards food & fashion-- partly because I am a cheapskate, but mostly because it is just so satisfying to make something perfect from scratch.  Now that we've cut out processed foods, my DIY stubbornness is spreading.  Bread, ice cream, ketchup--the store-bought versions of these often contain high fructose corn syrup, not to mention a variety of preservatives that one can't pronounce.  Why not make them at home, where I can actually control what's in them?

Who knows, before long I may be making my own shampoo and eye cream too...I have my eye on this book already.

Don't worry, I still plan on posting outfits and sewing projects.  But don't be surprised if the occasional food post sneaks in here!
