Hi all! I'm sorry it's been so long since my last post, but the hubby and I have been planning for a bit of transition. It looks like we'll be leaving the lovely city of Philadelphia and moving to the still lovely, albeit completely different city of Louisville Kentucky. Wish us luck!
We're very excited about the move. Although we'll miss the hustle and bustle of city life, the abundance of culinary delights and all of the other amazing things Philly has to offer, we're looking forward to experiencing a completely different way of life in Louisville.
So good and bad news. After next week I'll no longer be reviewing any restaurants or events in Philly. I'll post shorter reviews of some restaurants I've got in my file folders and just haven't gotten around to writing before I leave. GOOD news is that I plan on continuing my blog in Louisville!
I think I'm going to expand the blog once I get there and really delve into not only their restaurant and bourbon scene, but also the "country" scene. I'll look at farms and talk about what they're doing to raise local meat and produce. I'll look into regional differences in food since Louisville is often called the gateway to the south and is smack dab in the middle of many different regions of the country (southern, mid-western, eastern). I think this will be good news for my readers outside of Philly as my posts won't JUST be about Philly food, but instead include a lot of cultural information.
The last thing I plan to do is go back to trying to make some of my own food. We tried and failed in VA, but when we buy a house in the country the hubby plans on curing his own meat. I plan on making my own cheese. The dog plans on sleeping a lot on the porch (but that's neither here nor there). Our successes and failures will be a MUST READ, I promise.
So Philly, it looks like we'll be saying farewell. My Philly readers, I'll miss you, and my Philly restaurants, I'll certainly miss you. But we're embarking on an adventure, and I promise you, most every adventure Nick and I embark on will be filled with good stories, good food, good times, and we hope it will still be rare and well done.
I'll keep y'all updated every hilarious misstep of the way (and trust me...there will be some...and they will be hilarious). Thanks for reading and please stay tuned!!
