Food Fight, Results of Championship Bout

And the winner is...

Come on, you know who it is. There was never any doubt in this Food Network Food Fight once the highly orchestrated following of Alton Brown found their way to the Sullicom blog.

By well over 100 votes, Alton diced, minced and pureed tiny Giada De Laurentis into the ground. The final tally - 136-8.

To celebrate the victory, here is a link to one of Alton's recipes that goes right to the heart (in more ways than one) of my Southern upbringing - his prep for Country Ham.

Before signing off today, I want to wish everyone the happiest and most prosperous of new years. I've thoroughly enjoyed this blogging experience the past few months and appreciate the precious time you've spared from your busy days to drop by and read what I've written. I'm undecided at the moment if this blog will continue in its current format. While it's been fun, it takes a great deal of commitment to churn out content that makes it worth your while to read. It has also been dangerously tempting to write about comfort foods and I confess that I've resorted to eating lots of them in the name of research. The result has been a gain of about 20 lbs., which I don't even need my doctor to point out is not wise for a middle-aged man with a family history of cardiac trouble.

So, while I join millions of others who have resolved to lose weight in this new year, I'll try to figure out what to do about the blog. In the meantime, I'll continue to drop in on your blogs to enjoy what you've written. And when it does become clear what Sullicom wants to be when it grows up, I'll let you know and I hope you'll take a look.

Happy New Year!
