A Boston Food Diary Hits the Half Millenium Mark-500 Posts!!

Big day today. This post marks- wait for it...A Boston Food Diary's 500th post! It has been a great 500 posts- full of delicious meals, challenging recipes, great discoveries and fun events. I thought that in honor of the post, I would take a look back at some of my favorites:

Starting with: Where it all began- the very first post for A Boston Food Diary!

Writing A Boston Food Diary has given me a voice to speak out about things that interest me, and things that outrage me-a few examples:
I have eaten some amazing food at local restaurants:
I have found some great local businesses and organizations that I've been able to interact with:
I have used A Boston Food Diary to expand my own cooking repertoire. I have challenged myself in the kitchen, found new techniques and made some classic meals.
Finally, writing this blog has given me the opportunity to attend events I may never have been able to otherwise. There have been some fantastic company launches, restaurant openings, cooking classes, factory tours- some amazing things in the world of food!
The past 500 posts have been, quite simply, incredible. They have spanned over three years, seeing the rise and fall of restaurants, the successes and failures of my kitchen, and ultimately have really documented my life through food.

Thank you so much dear readers and friends for following along for the past 500 posts-stay tuned- there are some great things lined up for the next 500!
