There I go again...

Late for my own blogiversary... the first year of my blog, which date was 17th May. My blog is now a year and four days old. I guess, considering that we arrived back in the UK late on the 17th, my loss of memory regarding this event can be put down to jet-lag. In fact, having crossed three time zones in the US itself and jumping forward and backward by a couple of hours each time, it wasnt surprising that I didnt know if I was going or coming, or what the actual time was, or even the day, when we landed in Heathrow! Luckily there were no actual physical symptoms of jet lag, other than the memory loss.

I guess what I wanted to say on my blog's first blogiversary was that it's been the quickest year, the most entertaining, the most encouraging, the most inspiring time of my blog life. I started this food blog on a whim, and certainly didnt expect to enjoy it as much as I have (and am) or put in as much time and effort as I have (and am). I cant seem to make anything nowadays without taking photographs!

I've blog hopped for a lot longer than I've been blogging - especially food blogging - and I have so MUCH admiration for all those amateur-yet-professional cooks out there, who constantly inspire and amaze with their photographs and recipes and sheer innovation. I'm very glad to be part of that community, even if I'm still only on the fringes. Three cheers and long may it last!

Happy blogiversary! Our blogs were born under the same sign-it's my ist blog anniversary too!
I too have found it great fun, and much more involving than I ever expected. Many happy returns.

Happy Blogiversary!! 1 year is outstanding! I have only been at it a month but now I am totally in love with this little world.

oh and spoonbread, I serve it with lamb or chicken or game fowl. Anything with quitea bit of flavor as it is very mild and will not interfere but plays nicely with it. I hope you try it and enjoy it. Let me know if you ever have a question.
