Well, today in the mail I received two of my three magazine subscriptions (thank you, D.!) I got my Eating Well magazine, which I absolutely love. I have been getting it for probably at least four years now, if not more. I found it while living in NH, and I thought it was a bonus that it was published out of VT. I will read it cover to cover and my copies are (mostly) all saved (somewhere). They tend to be very seasonally-oriented, so I do go back to them as the time-of-year dictates. It definitely favors the local, organic, healthy way of eating, which I do find helpful and informative. They have extremely nice photos, as well. Their covers really are extraordinary, in general. 😉
I also got my copy of Everyday Food magazine. This one I’ve been getting for a bit over a year or so, or perhaps slightly more. I like it for it’s quick-and-easy recipes, and also very much so for it’s compact size. It’s a thinned down version of Reader’s Digest, size-wise. Which makes it very convenient for bringing to work and reading on my lunch break, for example. It’s very easy to thumb through, and it’s primarily recipe- and cooking/food-tip oriented. Yeah, yeah, it’s Martha Stewart, so sue me. 😉 I still find some goodies in there. 🙂
The other magazine subscription that I get is Mother Jones. This magazine I have absolutely loved for many years. Not food-oriented, per se, but they will have articles on issues relating to food, food sources, food processing, etc. I’ve had the actual subscription to it for a long time as well. Too, I will read these cover to cover. So it’s a good thing it’s a six issues per year one. There is so much information and reading in each issue… And so much in-depth writing on issues that may barely hit other media sources, internets included. I am often stunned at the depth and detail in the articles, topics nothwithstanding. I think I now have 1-1/2 issues to go through still. So be it… that’s often the way it is with me and MJ. But I do so love it and wouldn’t have it any other way.
As for my foodie mags, I love them too. It’s a bit lighter reading (obviously), but that is too a good thing. They are also nice for bathtime reading, even though bath season (for me) tends to be in the fall and winter. So be it, again. 😉 And these are my food-oriented thought for this eve… Other than I’m looking forward to spending some time with Granny tomorrow and doing some freezing. It’ll be fun to spend the time with her, and to learn some of her tricks of the trade. 🙂
