What Is It Wednesday and a Question

I am taking the week off from What Is It Wednesday. Our busy schedule over the last month and a vacation have not left me a lot of time to experiment with new foods. But I do have a question for you.

My goal with What Is It Wednesday has been to not only encourage my family to try new foods, but to hopefully inspire you to try new foods.

So, I would love to know if there is any interest in reader submissions for What Is It Wednesday? Would you all like to share what new foods you are eating? And as a reader would you like to hear what other readers are trying?

Please leave me a comment letting me know what you think? If there is interest, I will put together some guidelines and a form for submissions.

And you all have amazed me with my What Is It Wednesday posts. My readers are so smart. You all know your food, so if I decided to except guest posts for What Is It Wednesday, it would not have to be a new to you food, as long as it was a unique and more unusual item to others. Basically items along the same idea that I post about.

I can’t wait to hear your thoughts.

  1. Hmmm…. a fig?

  2. The small one is a sickel (sp?) pear. My grandpa had several trees on his farm when I was a kid. We loved eating 3 or 4 at a time, and Mom made the best pear jelly.

  3. I think a reader-submitted What-Is-It would be so much fun! It would allow us to see different things from around the country (and the globe) as well as to find out what others are eating…. I am getting some “weird” things in my CSA box that I could share if you decide to go this route!

    IMHO: Questioning readers for their opinion on things is usually fun for the readers. I have fun as a reader answering questions. I would suggest taking a break during the summer and see if your time frees up later in the Fall to make your decision. Moms are super busy in the summer. I volunteer at my kids’ VBS camps, go on family trips/vacation, and spend special moments with my kids. So, I personally don’t have as much to experiment with new foods during the summer. But, come Thanksgiving or a month before that even…
