Since the adoption Lara took three months off work to stay home with the baby, then I took three months starting in June. At the end of August we decided we liked that arangement and I quit my job in order to become a full-time stay at home dad.
Being a stay at home dad has been a wonderful expirence. Besides being able to spend the time with my son - I think being able to cook more is my favorite part. I have always enjoyed cooking but when both of us worked it was hard to make the time and we ended up eating out all the time. Now I am able to cook most days of the week.
I am not a professional cook and my only training was my Foods III class in high school, a couple of community classes, and my time at TJ's Big Boy cooking breakfasts on the line. I do enjoy cooking though and I like trying new things.
I am not sure how much I can add to the food blogging community - there are a lot of great blogs out there now - but I'll do this as long as it is fun for me. I am hoping it helps motivate me to keep doing new things.
As far as what I will be blogging about - you probably guessed it - Food. I would like to blog about new recipes I try. I might throw in some Restaurant articles if I go some place I really like. If I ever get to travel again (might be hard with the new baby) I might blog a little on that if I go anywhere interesting.
Thats enough for now. Hopefully there are some people that enjoy this - let me know if you do.
