Cooking, Anyone?

I am a creature of habit when it comes to food.  I am the person the waiter asks, “The usual?” when he comes to our table.  I cook the usual dishes at home, and friends often know what I will bring to a potluck.

Now there’s nothing wrong with shoyu chicken or custard pie, but I know that the culinary world is global and not confined to an island.  Plus living in Texas is proof that I am not on an island.

So I have made a commitment to try one new recipe a week.  It cannot be a mere modification or a spontaneous improvisation of something I’ve tried before.  No, it must be a recipe that will stretch my ability and expand my palate.

I want to know that, in the culinary environment, it’s not a small world after all!
