Red Diaper Dharma -- The Family Food

The recent talk discussion of gingerbread and oxtails and chicken made me hungry so my Literary Mama column this month is about FOOD.

Here's a brief excerpt from The Family Food:

"Like our dog Mollie, a brown-eyed, sausage-bodied Labrador-mix, my family is completely obsessed with food. Some families drink, and that's a part of their culture. Some do sports. Some focus on academics. And some eat. We eat."

You can read the rest of this Red Diaper Dharma column here: http://www.literarymama.com/columns/reddiaperdharma/archives/2008/05/the_family_food.html

As always, leave me a comment here or there... and let me know where/when I should make our dinner reservations. (French Laundry anyone?)

P.S. Yes, Mollie the dog DID make it into the column. But Lola the dog and the Breatharians did not.

Love the food focus

I am right there with you, my character and myself all about food.  Buying, cooking, baking it.  A lovely column, the family and the food.  My favorite part is where you fret about your thighs--damn those thin women with big appetites!  Where do they come from?  My mother is the same way, and I'm more fire plug than bean pole.
