New from North Carolina - delighted to be here!

I did a search for a forum that discusses food, and this is what I found.

Oh, my, I think I could get lost in this forum

I am older than I wish, more decrepit than I'd like, married with dogs and cats and big dreams that I never follow through on. I wanted to be Martha Stewart before anyone ever heard of her.

I also do a lot of embroidery (mostly cross stitch these days) and gardening (mostly herbs).

These days, we do a lot of takeout, but now and again I get industrious. Which is what led me here. I came looking for an answer to one question and have found a wonderful place to wander...

So hello, and thank you for letting me join you all :)

From the sounds of it, you're our kind of people Deb. Hanging out here you'll be cooking again in no time. A big welcome to you and jump right in. The nightly dinner thread is a good place for inspiration most nights.

Welcome from Texas. I don't know how old you are, but you probably fall into our "demographic," if you are "older than you wish."

I see lots of similar minds...Heinlein! Winnie-the Pooh! Oh, my :)

I was born in Texas but didn't get to grow up there. Always a Texan in my heart, though.

Thank you to everyone for a warm welcome :D
