A Feast for the Eyes

As you may or may not be aware, one of my hobbies is tinkering in the kitchen. Yes, I consider myself a bit of a hobby cook. I get great pleasure in spending a weekend afternoon trying to create something that not only tastes good, but looks good as well. Often this is done along side a glass or two of home-made wine, which happens to be another of my hobbies and which has often been dubbed as Will's Hootch.

For me this is not just a weekend activity either. During the week I am usually home from work before my wife, and so it is often up to me to come up with something for dinner; a role, I might add, that I do not mind in the least. I have sometimes quipped that she is my "guinea pig," in that I do a lot of meal experimenting on her.  I know that she doesn't mind, but actually rather enjoys it.

I believe the feast should be for the eyes as much as it is for the belly. What you're looking at in this picture is a sliced roast turkey breast. I surrounded the turkey with brown rice, a medley of beans and carrots, and finished it off with some whole cranberry sauce. Looks pretty good, doesn't it?

So what I've decided to do is to add a food and wine component to The Other Side of Will as well. Besides my usual twisted humour that this blog was built on, from time to time I will also share a blog post on what's been happening in my kitchen. Probably the best way to keep "abreast" (pun fully intended) of new posts would be to do so by signing up to the Networked Blogs on the left margin of this blog. In that way you don't always have to keep coming back to this page just to see if there is anything new from Will's Kitchen; you will be notified automatically of new posts. As usual, you will also be able to find a link to these posts on this blog's Facebook page. While you're there, don't forget to click on the "Like" button.

As always, you're welcome to share a comment or two. I would especially like to hear from you if you've tried duplicating one of my food experiments, or if you have some helpful hints for me to try.

Happy eating. Peace.
