Blog Talk

Woah. Today totally flew by! But, time flies when you’re having fun, right? 😉

This afternoon, I had the opportunity to enjoy lunch with a CNC reader and then chat with one of Mal’s colleagues. The focus of both meetings was one of my favorite subjects: pugs blogging!

Madison, a Junior at Princeton University, invited me to lunch to discuss food blogging as part of the research for her mini-thesis. She wanted to meet informally, so I could give her a better idea of what exactly blogging means and entails for me. Madison also wanted to see me in action! She even snapped a couple of photos of me taking photos of my food!

Madison and I had a TON in common, including our love for running, pugs, and bread. We love carbs! We had no problem finding things to talk about during lunch!

Madison and I went to the Rustic Kitchen for lunch. I ordered the Grilled Vegetable Panini, which was served with portobello mushroom, zucchini, summer squash, roasted red peppers, mozzarella, and basil aioli on ciabatta. I especially loved the bread, which was buttery and a tad crispy.

On the side, the panini came with mixed greens.

After lunch, I said goodbye to Madison and met Mal and one of his colleagues, who wants to start her own food blog. She had a lot of questions for me, so we met over a drink at the Union Brewhouse to chat.

While blabbing on and on about blogs (I just can’t help myself), I drank a Goose Island Honker’s Ale.

For dinner, I ate this same salad and a bunch of these. I also ate a Nature’s Path Mmmaple Pecan Bar and a bunch of dried apricots, but I never snapped a photo.

Mal and I are hosting a brunch at our house in the morning, so I’m off to cook and clean!

Good night!


  1. You are definitely a South Shore local now hanging out at the Brewhouse. My husband and I go there all the time- they always have GREAT beers on tap!

  2. I could talk about blogging allllllllllllll day . . . especially to some one who finds it interesting / a blogger themselves. Actually Brad has decided to give in to blogging (although not about food, about art and design) and he’s been asking me questions all week. I totally feel like the authority in our house right now 😉
