So, what’s the deal with this Fearless Friday series?
Not everyone is adventurous in the kitchen. Many of us have a narrowly defined menu that we chose from week in and week out. The same ingredients, the same techniques, the same flavors. These ruts develop either by habit of by a distrust of the unfamiliar. If I expect the readers of Home-Ec101.com to be fearless and push their boundaries I have to, as well. Those of you who follow me on Twitter (under the incredibly creative name @heathersolos) know I’ve been experimenting with an interesting ingredient in an attempt to make tasty stock.
I’m announcing Fearless Fridays. What are they? Simple, it’s a chance for you to brag or moan about your successes or failures. Big or small, win or lose, the steps you take toward expanding your horizons are an experience in growth. We’ll learn to shrug off our mistakes and discover some tasty things along the way.
Who is willing to step up to the challenge and play along? If you have a blog, I’ll soon have a badge for these events. Our good friend Andre Pope of 803 Labs was kind enough to whip this graphic up for us.
