The Butterfly Effect

I was tagged by Iskandals for this meme which was created by Dan of Saltshaker.

Here is the guideline for this meme as originally written:

My thought in this meme is food items or events that changed your foodie life. Not some “oh, it’s the first time I didn’t put jelly on a peanut butter sandwich and used bananas instead” sort of change, unless you truly feel that affected you profoundly. That’s the key – it affected you profoundly, in some manner. A moment you can look back at and say “that was a defining moment”. The questions are simple, the answers might be harder – an item, person, event, or place that had that effect on you, and why. They don’t have to be big splashy things – sometimes it’s something very small and simple that changes the way we view the world – the famed “butterfly effect” (and I’m not talking about the Aston Kutcher movie). So, to those who want to participate, copy this and pass it on (and, if you’re so inclined, do a trackback to the originating post). Here are your categories:

1. An ingredient
2. A dish, a recipe
3. A meal (in a restaurant, a home, or elsewhere)
4. A cookbook or other written work
5. A food “personality” (chef, writer, etc.)
6. Another person in your life

1. An ingredient – cheese & crackers with apples, grapes & glass of wine while tutoring an 8 year old girl in English

2. Dish –

3. Meal – Chinese banquet – 20+ courses, 3 hours. Seemed more like a hundred courses.

4. Cookbook –

5. A food “personality” – Julia Childs, Galloping Gourmet, Naked Chef, Yan Can Cook, Frugal Gourmet

6. Another person in your life

Filipino Cookbooks

About Jeanette Moore (JMom)

I am a terrible housekeeper but I do love to cook so it all evens out in the end. I like to try new recipes that I think my family will like. However, I am not one to follow all recipes to the letter. I tend to tweak and change the recipes based on what I have on hand and how I am feeling at the time. Feel free to share your versions, I just might try it out next time I make the dish again.
