Index: of food

Food index, v.02. As of April 2014.

Once in a while, I get into a flurry of organised-ness. This happened last Sunday night and this is the result.

There are categories or sub-headings, with all food-related posts placed under these headings. As you’ll see, there is a lot of baking, divided into sweet and savoury types; there are also quite a few salads. A few records of dinner parties, a few non-baking desserts, and so on.

I like to think there is method in this evolving madness, somewhere. Thanks for dropping by.
