 h1. Dear readers,

 Here's Dinner Guest blogger [/mix/dinnerguest/afishstory?utmsource=NL20090304&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=JoanMenefee&utmcampaign=BloggingContest "Joan Menefee"]:

 "I believe we could all find one meal a week about which to tell a story — a fish story, even. And if we did, we would be enlightened or amused or frightened or gripped by that thing that we do about five times a day: eat."

 Now Joan's a writing teacher, so sure, she's all about storytelling. But honestly, doesn't everyone love a good tale? And doesn't everyone eat?

 We're happy to see our members using their Culinate blogs to report on all things food: their latest cooking successes (or failures), their cooking heroes, their latest finds at the market. 

 This month we're hosting the [/articles/ourtable/thealmost-springbloggingcontest?utmsource=NL20090304&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=BlogContestOurTable&utmcampaign=BloggingContest "Almost-Spring Blogging Contest."] Blog on Culinate and you could win $100 to shop at your favorite farmers' market, plus other food-related goodies.

 We've already picked our first blog post to feature on the homepage: Laura Parisi's [/user/mydogischelsea/blog/thecarrotquandary?utmsource=NL20090304&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=BlogContestOurTable&utmcampaign=BloggingContest "carrot conumdrum"].

 So what are you waiting for? Get blogging!
 Kim Carlson
 Editorial Director
