Also the return of …

… dogs!

Just like I have no excuse for a stunning lack of food photos last year, I have no excuse for an alarming dearth of dog snaps. I’m actually more appalled at myself for the latter, because if there’s one thing I love more than chow, it’s hounds.
I would like to say I am getting “back to basics”, but for some reason that makes me think of the food pyramid, with faded four-color illustrations of sheafs of wheat, a bowl of eggs, a bottle of milk, and a cut of raw meat, which I find rather unappealing. So instead I’ll just say that in 2008, you can expect a resurgence of yum and woof.
Stay tuned.
