12.29.2012

Wow! What a year! Soon after the last post on March 25th, wheels were set in motion that basically took up the rest of the year. In late April, I was approached for a job opportunity in Cincinnati, OH.
Most of May was taken up with pursuing the job opportunity and once the interviews were done and I was offered the job -- craziness ensued.
June 2012 will be a month to remember - our best friends' daughter graduated from college (Oregon State) and we were honored to be at her graduation where First Lady Michelle Obama gave the commencement speech. As soon as we were finishing up the graduation, we flew to Nevada as quickly as possible to see our youngest grandson, a panicked call, concern for his life at stake. We spent several days saying goodbye.Thankfully, he was able to be treated for his condition, however it still remains to be seen whether he survives his illness. While we were sadly enduring what we thought might be the end of our grandson's life...another panicked call...my beloved dog Shasta (13) was in dire straits back in Oregon, advanced bladder cancer causing him duress. He was not to survive the week. We went straight from the airport to the Vet to say goodbye.
While all of this was happening, I was asked to make the decision to take the job -- I did.
"How fast could we be in Cincinnati?" they asked. This was June 21 -- we packed our home into a POD, I finished my time at my current job, sad goodbyes to family & friends...and we started driving east on July 12th. Our other dog, Cocoa (also 13) faithfully and diligently powered through with us, in the heat, in the car, in the motel rooms. We arrived in Cincinnati, OH on the 16th of July, during the hottest time of the year, meltingly humid and 100 degrees! A tiny motel room would be our home for the next 31 days until we could find a permanent home.

Fast forward to Dec 29th, we are now settling in to our routine; work, home, fun, exploring and finding that Cincinnati, basically unheard of to me in my life so far, is a pretty cool city. As we explore, I'll do my best to keep you filled in. My strong opinions of food have already found likes & dislikes in "Cincy".

About Me

My photo
Cincinnati, OH, United States
A dedicated foodie, with a passion for the best food. Favorite food crushes include; Cheese, Wine, Breads, Seafood, anything made with eggs, ...there's actually no point in a list, there isn't much out there I don't have a crush on. Transplanted from the Northeast at age 18, a whole new frontier of food was opened up to me. I have fished for Salmon, hunted for mushrooms, cracked open fresh oysters from the sea and devoured them on the spot. Figs, pears, peaches, so many indigenous jewels! I dedicate this BLOG to the endless variety this region provides. My hope is to live here for a very long time & continue to discover and experience it's unique bounty! Alas, my life has now taken me to Cincinnati, OH where the food culture is like none I have ever experienced.
