My blog will turn 1 year old on the 7Th. Things have been super crazy here these past few weeks and I'm not sure if I'll have time to make an official blogiversary post. I figured doing one early was better than forgetting and doing none at all.
I thought in celebration of blogging for one year, I'd relay a phone conversation I had with my mother this past week. I thought it was particularly fitting since my first post on this blog was a description of why I named this blog Tomatoes for Apples. I think if anyone thought I was making an exaggeration about her crazy substitutions, this conversation should squelch any of those doubts.
Mom: So I made that meatloaf I saw while I was watching Food Network at your house.
Mom: Yeah. Except it called for crimini mushrooms. I used Portabello instead.
ME: MMM, that sounds good.
Mom: It called for bread crumbs, but I don't like bread crumbs. I used crackers instead.
ME: Sure, why not.
Mom: It was also supposed to have Fontina cheese in it. I used Feta instead. They both start with "F".
Mom: It was good, but I wonder what it was supposed to taste like.
