Etcetera | justifiable deliquency

I know I've been quite the delinquent blogger--you can blame it mostly on the demands from the bean counting world (those beans don't just count themselves, you know) as well as the long process behind finishing the blog post surrounding my visit to Alinea--it was such a memorable meal (without sounding like I'm overly rhapsodizing, it was probably the single best meal I've ever had in my life) that I want to be able to re-tell it in exactly the same light that I experienced it. I'm nearly halfway there, so hopefully I'll be finished by tonight or this weekend, so bear with me. I promise the photographic documentation as well as the notes I had taken with each course will surely make up for my absence from the blogosphere.

In the mean time, here are some things that are on the menu (both blogworthy experiences and upcoming meals) that I look forward to sharing with you:

The Blogworthy (as you can see, Marcus is still right--I'm eating more than I can write)
