I wonder...

I often hangout on twitter and wonder how many of the tweets are "censored" and no, not by some Big Brother patrolling the cyber world but by the posters? How do people balance their public personas with their private ones? Or do you just let it all hang out there? I often fear that I will lose followers if I am "real", you know the let it all hang out there sometimes not politically correct, or even PG-13 kinda real. But I guess then I need to decide exactly what kind of blogger I want to be. For now I will muddle through the big bad cyber world in search of my identity, pausing along the way to plan a few meals :)

Enjoy my friends! And a big welcome to my new followers!!!

PORK SCALLION RECIPE (Thanks Nicki!!!)
1 pork tenderloin, cut into 18 medallions, pound out so thin
Marinade for at least 30 minutes in:
2 tbsp Low Sodium Soy Sauce
2 tbsp Oyster Sauce
1 tbsp Sesame Oil
1 tbsp Honey (I didn't use the honey)

Cut scallions into 18 spears slightly longer than your pork medallions. Wrap pork around scallions. Broil for 5 minutes or until cooked through (depending how thin your pork is. I sprinkled mine with sesame seeds.

I think you should be yourself. It's easy, even on a blog to detect a fake. As long as you're happy with your post, who cares! Plus, from what I remember, you're awesome!
