All About Adobo: a Call for Blog Entries.

Adobo -- eating it, cooking it, talking about it, thinking about it -- is also about memory, colonialism, cultural contact, consumption, family, cuisine, the senses, identity... and it's good to eat too!

Remembrances, poetry, stories, recipes, photographs and other ruminations, whether fragmented or complete, long or short, rough or polished, are all welcome.

"Deadline" -- or rather, posting time -- will be Monday, December 8 -- just drop me a line via email at wily [ a t ] when you've posted it on your blog, and I will combine the links (which you can then similarly append to your entries). (If you don't have a blog, feel free to send me the writeup and I can post it on mine.) I encourage everyone to comment on each other's work as well.

Hopefully this will be the beginning of a kind of collaborative Pinoy/Pinay blog project -- one in a series where Filipina/o bloggers all write and post on the same topic (on the same day). ("Submissions," by the way, are open to *everyone* who's ever tasted / smelled adobo, whether it's the Filipino, Mexican, or Peruvian variant...)

And please spread the word -- the more participants, the better!

I have about 5 adobo recipes in my cooking journal. I'll just post an "adobo" entry in my main blog on dec. 8th (Manila time ba yan?) linking to this post and all the adobo recipes I have. Ok ba yon?

Yeah, what time zone are you looking for? CST here, btw.

No time zone, kikaykrasher -- as long as it's posted that day (still have to work on my post).
