The Food Blog Rises Again

Well it has taken almost half a decade, but I have come back from the dark crater of the Internet to write about food again. This time, instead of detailing my weight loss travails, I am writing about feeding the people in my life. The blog is called "Master of Low Arts" and it is dedicated to the pursuit of not high culinary arts but the pursuit of the perfect, common, grilled cheese sandwich, and all of its comrades. I call that the low arts, and over the years when anyone has said "you're a good cook," I have demurred and said "I'm a meter of low arts." This begins at wanting to create home-made version of comfort foods, to making them look appealing on the plate. I hope one day I can hire a better photographer than myself. If you have liked the writing in this blog, then you will certainly enjoy the writing in THAT blog, which features the same writer, Robert Deutsch. So, to recap, it's http://masteroflowarts.com and you can find it on your Internet. Please go there, tell your friends through all your social media channels. And if the recipes work out, please let me know too. Lastly, I am always happy when people want to read through this blog. It tells the tale, over about three years, of my struggles to understand what I was eating, and lose weight and gain control of my life and the life of my family and friends. By all means, if you're struggling with your weight, go to the beginning and read it. You may find it inspirational? I wrote it and sometimes I find it so. Now back to the grilled cheese sandwiches...

Started writing again about food

I continue to try and stay on my lifelong journey to be fit and healthy. However, since I must eat every day, there is constant temptation. Since I'm now unemployed, I have spent multiple hours every week meeting with people and having lunch. This has given me the the desire (and the content) to start writing again, and I have chosen Yelp to do it.

Well, I've been writing a lot again about a few topics, not just food. Mostly in
Parenting- reading your toddler a story and more
parenting like dropping your kid off for the first day of school here.

Also obsessing about the Beatles, but haven't had time to put pen to paper there. I almost forgot my SoBe log in. I have been going to the gym regularly, but seem to be heavier than any time in four years.
