Tasty Touring is Two! Help me Celebrate YOUR Life in Food
Since then, the name has changed (from Food Touring to Tasty Touring) and the design has changed (thanks to Adam Holzband at Talking Machine). However, the reasons I keep posting remains the same: to express myself in an honest and creative way, share my life through the lens of food, and connect with others.
Am I a foodie? Don’t get me started on the negative connotations I have with that word. What I am is an appreciative eater, a voracious learner, and a storyteller.
From the beginning, this blog has served as a personal outlet to share my passion for food, writing, and photography with friends and family. The surprise gift I’ve received in return is dear friends, a wonderful food book club, a deep connection to the Austin community, and a fall-back conversation topic at cocktail parties.
For my two year blog birthday, or as we call it in the industry, my blogiversary, I would be touched if you would take a few minutes and share YOUR answers (and your parents and grandparents) to some questions on your life in food. I interviewed my family on the topic and their answers along with some great vintage pictures can be found here.
These are not applicable to everyone, so feel free to add or subtract as you like from the list. If you would share, I’d love to see the answers in the comments section below. At the least, save the results to share with your children, and their children one day.
If you were given a dollar to buy treats when you were a kid, what would you buy?

Who did the grocery shopping?
Did your family say grace before meals? What was said and by whom?
Where did your family get meat from when you were a kid? If you don’t eat meat, why and what prompted that decision?
What was your first candy bar?
Did you ever steal a pack of gum?
Did you make your own beer or wine?
Did you share food with your neighbors? Could you borrow a cup of sugar from them?
