Blogged up!

After some minor effort and consulting of help files we have managed to add me to the blog account, so I am able to create my own entries :

Despite the busy week – we managed to go to the office Halloween party on Friday in the city. For those who have never driven highway 101 to San Francisco on the Friday before Halloween – it is hard to describe. Think Wacky Races meets the Cannonball Run with a side order of Carmmeggedon. Ugly.In any case we made it to the party, held at the very funky Fluid Lounge, and met up with a few more people. Amazingly (if you are a Brit) everyone had made an effort and the costumes were very elaborate. Of course there were the obligatory ‘naughty schoolgirls’ and drag queens, but more original highlights included a box of tissues – and memorably a couple dressed as sushi. Inspired.

Overall a good time – and we felt good about getting to the city for the first time. So glad we followed L’s instincts and decided to live in Palo Alto though – that commute is not funny….

I’m Louise, and I’m a compulsive baker, cookbook hoarder and a bit of a food geek. I learnt to cook at home, and later at Tante Marie’s cooking school in San Francisco. With a science degree and a background in IT analysis, I like to understand why a recipe works, not just how to do it. Why the rules are there and when they can be broken.
