My mom always said that if you want to make the Universe laugh, tell it your plans. This is not what I planned on. Are you laughing Universe?
I have come to the realization that I can no longer afford to be a foodie. I could fight a lot of things to keep going as Suzie The Foodie here on my site but not having enough money is something I can’t do much about with my health issues.
Did you know the first thing I taught myself to cook was pierogies? I had moved out of the house after university and was so poor so I cooked them all the time. Not correctly. Not well. But it was food and they kept me alive.
I wanted with all my heart to go to The CNE this year and have the best pierogies on the planet but I could not afford to go so I made some myself. This time properly by boiling them first and then browning them. That’s the way I like them. Sprinkled with dill and caramelized onions… It is the closest I could get.
My heart is broken about having to give up my site. I tried with all my heart to keep the foodie dream alive but I have to get serious and real about my situation. I still have lots of places to write about but am going to put them up on Yelp. I never intended this to be a region-oriented site. I hope to also still continue to have foodie fun on Facebook and share postcard foodie moments on Instagram.
If my finances miraculously change I hope to be able to come back but until then I want to thank all of you for your support, love and friendship. This really is my source of therapy so I hope I can handle life without it. The truth is I am living on veggies, hummus and yogurt and have very little to write about.
Maybe one day the foodie adventure will continue. Until then enjoy all the foods you can!
Life is short. Enjoy every bite.
