I met Ashley over at Delish-Blog.com over 4 years ago on, of all things, a wedding message board. We became good internet friends, she answered tons of questions for me about DIY wedding projects (she pulled of a gorgeous wedding of her own the year before I got hitched) and she was even AT my wedding as an assistant to my coordinator. We’ve stayed in touch over the years and I recently met up with her and another wedding board friend for brunch in Grapevine. We chatted a little about babies, a little about husbands, a little about weddings, a little about blogs.
The idea came up to do a blog collaboration of sorts, and I loved it. See, Delish blog is about cooking, something I feel very intimidated by, but Ashley assures me that it is so easy to incorporate good, healthy, easy meals into my routine, especially if I plan ahead and freeze some. It’s the planning that always gets me, but I’m hoping this little project will force me to think ahead.
This week she’s challenged me to make some Wonton Soup with Baby Bok Choy. I’m not going to lie, I’m a little scared. 1. I think my wontons are going to look like crumpled gum wrappers. 2. I have never seen bok choy in the grocery stores around here (although, admittedly, I’ve never looked). 3. I cringe at any recipe with more than 5 ingredients. I’m not going to let my hesitations stop me, though. I’m going to make my grocery list, head to the store, and try these bad boys out sometime this week. I’ll be blogging about it on Friday.
Now, I hope I’m not alone on this endeavor so I’m challenging you, too. I would love if some of you try it out and let me know how you liked it. You can blog about it and link here if you’d like, or just comment on Friday. Make sure to check the recipe out here, and feel free to comment on Ashley’s blog with any questions. Good luck!
