This week, I turn 28, and I’ve already decided, this is going to be a year for change. I want to focus on eating locally and seasonally whenever possible, not just when it is convenient or after I read Michael Pollan’s latest article. I want to eat healthier and force myself to workout 5 days a week, and not let it fall to the wayside when silly things like “winter” or “sleeping in” get in the way. Finally, I want this website to see some changes. After a lot of soul-searching and a few bacon sandwiches, I’ve made a major decision–Leena Eats This Blog is going to have scheduled, weekly blogs. I’ve avoided this before now for many reasons, namely laziness and a life that thrives on chaos. But the bacon got me thinking, and I really think it is time for my little food blog grow up a bit, take its first shot of liquor, and along with, its first shot at responsibility. Starting this week, you can expect three weekly blogs. Mondays will be Leena Cooks, where I (duh) talk about what I’ve been cooking lately and perhaps throw in a recipe or two (but no promises–this is not a recipe blog!). Wednesdays will be Leena Eats, where I talk about restaurants I’ve eaten at lately. You could call it a restaurant review, but since I only visit most restaurants once before writing a review, by a food critic’s standards, it is not a proper review. But it is freaking funny! Fridays will be Gastro Fridays, where I will put my master degree to good use and ponder the world’s great gastronomic questions and ideas. Be warned–it’s about to get chunky up in here. In between, you can expect to see more Chicken ‘n Waffles food podcasts, and as Chicago slowly starts the thaw, more travel posts as well. Thanks for sticking with me this long, and I hope you enjoy my changes! ~LTG!
