Plans ahead for fun with food | Our Corner

Food, food, yummy food so good and bad. I have discovered from a most reliable source the fall in the Garden of Eden was about losing out on what we get to eat. Specifically, after 50 there is no more stuffing ourselves with cold pizza and praline ice cream at midnight – or for breakfast.

I have discovered from a most reliable source the fall in the Garden of Eden was about losing out on what we get to eat. Specifically, after 50 there is no more stuffing ourselves with cold pizza and praline ice cream at midnight – or for breakfast.

My long-term relationship with food has been complicated by an evil blood sugar machine. Now I get to watch young, talented reporters like Ray Still standing behind me mumbling inaudibly with doughnut dust all over his shirt. (I sip my glass of buttermilk and feel superior… rotten youth.)

Because of my ups and outs with food, Becky Gourley, wunderkind reporter working at the Covington Reporter office, and I have decided to launch a food feature page. I have been trying to find someone as interested in digestive puzzles as I am. Becky is perfect. She likes to experiment as much as I do. She takes recipes and converts them to vegan and diabetic delectables without making it taste like first-grade paper paste, which wasn’t all that bad. She also puts up with my incredibly hilarious food jokes and anecdotes.

The plan is for me to find a traditional recipe and Becky will convert the dish into different forms – vegan, vegetarian, diabetic happy or best for Jennifer Anderson. (Our zippy new “In the Day” columnist who is questioning my sources on the identity of a certain Ms. Vegan. My sources are always carefully vetted and fine upstanding citizens in the bloom of life, even if one source has apparent hair. Please check out Jennifer’s most recent writing on page 7 – it is a good one.)

Becky has a talent with food and cooking and enjoys wrecking a dish a few times to find a new way.

We are both looking forward to beginning this feature page within the next couple of weeks. It should be a great deal of fun and the infamous Ms. Vegan may be our taste tester.

If you have recipe you would like us to feature, please send it to me at dbox@soundpublishing.com or rgourley@soundpublishing.com.
