G chat conversation between me and my husband after the President’s Day post:
hank: It was a good post.
Ashley: Thanks. I didn’t think it was my best.
hank: there was a lot of ground to cover
Ashley: it’s true, and it was kind of long after the fact
hank: i liked how the photos were very documentary style. you could have made them prettier, by like showing the final served/garnished dish, but they’re more real this way. which is what i think the whole point of the blog is
Ashley: thanks. it’s true, the point of the blog is to show that real people can cook real food
and they make mistakes
hank: or don’t always follow the recipe
Ashley: and there are lots of dishes
Ashley: perfect food isn’t made by perfect people! anybody can do it!
hank: indeed! it always irritates me when ppl say they can’t cook
Ashley: it’s true. it is just that you aren’t taking the time to cook!
