Hodge podge is a blend of spring vegetables, cooked in butter and cream. It’s a simple meal, greater than the sum of its parts. This space will be like that. Recipes, politics, parenting, sex, money, aging, weight loss. I am choosing to remain semi-anonymous so I don’t censor myself too much. Suffice it to say I am a work-at-home mother of three boys under 7, I’ve been blogging since 2005, I was a late but enthusiastic convert to Twitter and I have nearly kicked my sick addiction to Facebook. I watch the news every day but I also watch TLC. I am a wife, mother, sister, friend. I am painfully shy underneath my chatty exterior.
