That's how long I've been blogging now.
I've had such a lovely time, and enjoyed every minute. I've gotten to know so many of you Dear Readers, and love reading your comments and blogs as well. Thanks for sticking with me, I know things have slowed down just a little with my health issues, but I'm not going anywhere and hopefully will be picking up the pace bit by bit.
I thought I'd share a few of my favourite things about my Blog, and show you a bit about what else I been up to lately as well.
Favourites So Far:
My Favourite Blog Post so far: Pumpkin
It just appeals to me as a great snapshot of our family life. Funny, but true.
Most Viewed Post: A Bit of Fluff
Guess it's the pretty pink pictures perhaps?
Most Conversation Generating Post (not the same as most comments): A Bit On The Side
Would you go the free biscuit?
Post I'm Particularly Proud Of: Cooking En Masse
I enjoyed sharing a bit about the challenges of commercial catering, also how I try to bring out the best in my food under difficult circumstances.
Favourite Recipe So Far:
Really tricky indeed to pick one! I don't post a recipe I don't like, but they aren't all recipes I'd eat all the time. Despite not being a big sweet fan, this is just a lovely dessert that I could enjoy any time of day, any time of year, any time at all!
Recipe I Won't Be Making Again In A Hurry: Wasabi Macarons
Love the macaron, love wasabi, but I think I prefer sweet flavours instead. One of my favourite macaron flavours was an Adriano Zumbo Eucalyptus one that was fabulous indeed!
Best Dinner Party Dish: Twice Cooked Goat Cheese Souffles
So delicious, so easy, so impressive!
It's hard having all this time off without being able to do much though. With my shoulder still out of commission and both wrists waiting on surgery, I can only fumble through life at the moment. I love my 'swype' app making typing accessible, or I would be stuck for sure!
I find it hard to do nothing, I hate daytime television, I don't do Facebook or Twitter, so I always have projects on the go. Apart from these below, I also have olives brining in my laundry, blackberries boozing under the sink, an edible flower garden underway, a coffee tree and tea bush growing, and of course my veggie garden to tend to.
This is a bit of what I've been up to lately:
Growing Shiitake Mushrooms, delicious!
Making my own Vanilla Essence
Enjoying a Birthday Cake baked by my lovely Girls, and presented in a gorgeous Cake Stand as a present
Being spoilt with a stand of gorgeous gluten free goodies for my birthday
Growing my own Saffron
Making dinner, with all the vegetables having been grown in my garden:
Beans, Pumpkin, Spring Onions, Parsley, Broccoli, Chili, Silverbeet, Carrots, Potatoes and Mushrooms
Well my Dearest Readers, I hope you have enjoyed the last two years as much as I have. Is there anything you would like to see me cover on my Blog?
P.S. The Next post will have a Blogaversary Giveaway!
