This time last year, I got a Fortunate You necklace from Tea Stain clothing in Sacramento. The fortune said: “You will step on the soil of many countries.”
A combination of wanderlust, luck and professional opportunity made that fortune come true in 2010.
I sampled fresh fish and explored new flavors in Russia as a guest lecturer for St. Petersburg State University.
We celebrated my birthday with ceviche on the beach in Ensenada.
Finally, I left my Sacramento newsroom behind and became the Newark Patch editor. In this Alameda County city, I cover news, politics, crime and other issues that matter to Newark residents. Plus, I have a chance to profile all the amazing food spots in Newark.
You can find rest of my album, “In My Tummy: 2010,” on Flickr.
What do you think? What should I try next?
Download episode 2 of ‘In My Belly.’ Goes nicely with white wine. Maybe a vodka tonic.
I had no idea camping could be a culinary adventure. Our friends opened our eyes and mouths to the pleasures of bacon, pancakes and good food at the campsite in Scotts Valley.
Last June, Catalina made reservations at the Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. We packed everything into our little Corolla, survived the twists and turns on Highway 17 and spent the night under the stars. In my next episode of ‘In My Belly’ – we cover all yummy options for tent-side eating.
