Thursday night was actually the 10th anniversary of the first date I had with my sweetie, Dave. That first date took place at Vietnam Palace in Philadelphia, which (as it had turned out in our earlier art class discussions) was a place we both considered one of our favorites in the city. I guess it was a good sign for our future together that we both loved this same odd little restaurant in Chinatown and enjoyed Vietnamese food along with many other cuisines. So yes, we are still together today, and it seemed as though we really should mark the occasion with another Vietnamese dinner.

I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.
