About The Foodies

While having dinner one night, we looked at each other and said, “We really should start a blog.” Now, we know there are a million food blogs out there. Why does the interwebs need to hear from us? Because we’re normal. We don’t drive for hours to try a new food truck. We cook stuff that doesn’t require a culinary degree or an entire day in the kitchen. We like to eat (and drink) but we do other things, too. Like work.

And we have food quirks. Maybe you can relate to that. The husband doesn’t eat beef, veal, or just about any vegetable that isn’t starchy; the wife can’t stand sea anemone or eel and feels guilty eating lamb.

Disclaimer: All of the opinions on this blog are ours. No one can cut out subconscious biases (like those created when bartenders give you free drinks!) but we try our best to be honest. We would want other people to be honest with us.

Other disclaimer: If we say something about your restaurant you don’t like, we’re sorry. See above re: honesty. Everyone has an off night and we try to be mindful of that but sometimes a place has an institutional problem that has to be noted.

Rules for commenters: Be nice. Absolutely NO ad hominem attacks against the bloggers or other commenters. This is supposed to be fun and informative. If you make it not fun, your comment WILL NOT get approved.

About the couple: We are thirtysomethings. We’ve known each other since 2001 when we were in college together and we got married in 2009.

About the wife: She’s been an accountant since 2004 and loves numbers maybe a little too much. She eats and cooks and bakes and drinks and constantly has to watch her weight because of it.

About the husband: He’s a government employee… for 9 years… he likes nice people who don’t talk too much and FOOD!!! He’s a fatty who loves beer, wine and clear spirits. He likes to cook, usually stuff that is too hard for him but usually turns out well. he tries to watch his weight as it goes by at the speed of light but can’t seem to see it… oh and he loves the Wifey. she rocks.
