“Celebrating” Memorial Day…

Today is Memorial Day in the United States. For those readers who aren’t in or from the US, I realize you may also honor the memory of those lost in military service, some today, some on other days. According to Wikipedia, “Decoration Day“, or in modern times, “Memorial Day” has controversial origins. Some say Memorial…

Taco Tuesday! (Well, Really Taco Sunday, But You Get the Drift)…

OK, I lied… its not Taco Tuesday, but that sounds better than Taco Sunday, doesn’t it? While foraging today I realized I missed breakfast, and at lunchtime I was powerful hungry. What to do, methinks? Then it hit me… piping hot, fresh tacos! For many years, my family and I have frequented the red taco…

Shouldn’t We All be Locavores?

Are you familiar with the term “locavore”? From dictionary.com: loh-kuh-vawr a person who makes an effort to eat food that is grown, raised, or produced locally, usually within 100 miles of home. I think this is a great definition, and a great practice. While some definitions indicate a diet solely made up of local items…

Happy Mother’s Day! And Eggs Florentine for Brunch!

Here in the US, today is Mother’s Day. From Wikipedia…Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.” Couldn’t agree more. The tradition began in the early 20th century, and was never intended to become anywhere near as commercialized as…

Welcome to The Suburban Forager!

Welcome, and thank you for visiting The Suburban Forager.  My name is Chris Church, and I am an Internet celebrity! Ok, so maybe not a celebrity (darn!). I mean, isn’t everyone on the Internet a celebrity? Sure seems like it… Alas, you may be the only reader, but I certainly hope not. What is The…
