I called AZ home for 21 years. Although I don’t miss the overbearing “dry” heat, I do miss the other 8 months of the year. Oh, family too.
Before looking through a viewfinder I was rocking a hand forged Japanese knife in kitchens making delectable morsels of food. My other foodie fun happens during the warmth of the summer; gardening. There’s nothing like eating an entire meal prepared from your own home grown creations. I prefer the heirloom variety.
I do dance. Well, not in public at least. It’s more to make my kids laugh. Aubre joins in the laughter but looks at me weird though.
I was first turned onto the creamy unnaturally green mint Oreo goodness after meeting Aubre. Nothing better to start off a late night editing binge then with a hot pink Barbie cup with freezing skim milk(yeah, I said skim………a little good a little bad) and a handful of Oreos. I dunk until just about to the point of losing the whole thing into the depths of my cup.
I go to church but won’t preach unless you ask! I’m a scoutMASTER as well. You just won’t see me wear beaded necklaces. It’s just not my style. And yes, I can make a fire by rubbing sticks together. Scouts Honor. But, I will admit, I prefer a lighter to flint.
Family? Well, that’s what life’s about. I may not be the best dad but I give it a whirl. I don’t care how poor a man is; if he has a family, he’s rich. And here’s a quote just because of my chef background…………….
Govern a family as you would cook a small fish; very gently- Chinese proverb. I love it.
