For a food and travel blog, it seems appropriate to use the word 'plate' in the title. To 'have a lot on one's plate' is a popular idiom. It is literally what you eat off of and figuratively what you use to describe all you do in life.
Since eating and creating meals are easier to do than traveling, this blog consists mostly of the former. I cannot begin to tell you how travel affects my perceptions of the world and of home. It's truly a constant learning experience.
