And Now, Something New

I can look in the mirror and see that the circles under my eyes are not as dark.  However, there are a lot of physiological things happening internally that are unseen.  So with writing a blog.  You can see the end result but there are a lot of things happening in the background that are unseen.  Some of it is easy.  Some isn’t.

While we were learning that fried plantain is tasty and nothing to be skeptical about, I was learning how to post recipes within the blog.  What’s that?  Just type it?  One option, of course, but I was daring to go where I never had, working with what is called a plugin.

Plugins are not new to me.  They are like cholesterol.  There are good ones – easy, breezy, make-you-feel-happy little workers and some are ‘bad’ – the ones that keep you frustrated and make you think you’re never going to get this figured out.  And just like trying to regulate my cholesterol I’ve got this partially figured out.

Today I’m going to share how we made fried plantain.  Formatted into a printable recipe no less.  Oh, it’s a big day in NSV (non-scale victories) world.

The Recipe page is still under construction.  It requires more labor-intensive research to get it just so.


For the time being (and probably a while), it’s going to be more of an index or table of contents.

And now, without further ado, TA-DA!!
