It’s no secret that I love food (and wine!), so for this month’s adventure, I’ll be focusing my doodlewashes and stories on the wonderful world of food and drink. And I’m inviting all of you over for dinner, because seriously, how cool would that be? During the month, if at any time you’d like to come to the party, just “bring over” a lovely doodlewash of something delicious to eat or drink by using the hashtag – #DoodlewashDinner. If you enjoyed last month’s adventure or are looking for some ideas, there’s a food holiday to celebrate each and every day in May and you can find them all here. I’ll probably be celebrating a few of them as we go along because some of them look downright delicious!
Although I love food, I don’t actually cook. I’ve tried on multiple occasions, but the results haven’t been great which is a polite way to say disastrous. Philippe does all the cooking in our house now after I was banished from the kitchen while attempting to make him food way back when we first started dating. And that was just pasta. It occurred to me this was an excellent way to get out of cooking had I been bluffing, but sadly I really did just suck at it. The same is true for gardening although I love flowers. And because I love them so much, I no longer try to grow them.
But even if I can’t make actual food that tastes good, hopefully with a little dedicated practice, I’ll soon be whipping up doodlewashed dishes that can be a feast for the eyes. And I hope you’ll join me with a delicious doodlewash of your own this month! Whether it’s your favorite food from childhood or your favorite bottle of wine, bring it over and join me for a #DoodlewashDinner any time you like. I’ll create a gallery of the yummy treats and feature each of the doodlewashers who play along at the end of the month. So grab a fork and a glass of your favorite thing to drink, and let’s eat!
