I know right, none of my faves are recipes. They are time with family and road trips. Isn’t this a food blog you’re asking, how can her faves not be recipes. Well first of all it is way too hard for me to pick a fave recipe. And secondly all of these trips somehow revolved around or were highlighted by food. We were shopping for food in most or having a picnic in one. So they are food related, just not recipes. For me food and family are intertwined in a big way. We have our traditions and many involve food in a big way. So for me the posts that mean the most somehow involve family and time spent together. Our lives have been stressful for so long now that the moments we had to get out and let our hair down are the ones that ring true for me personally.
I hope you enjoyed this look back. I sure did have fun putting it together for you. It’s been an amazing year, lots of good times were had. My philosophy is you can sit around moaning how hard your life is, or you can move past and get off your duff and have some fun. I choose fun. Life is way too short, get out there and kick up your heels a bit. You will not be sorry. If you kick your heels up with an eclair in each hand all the better.
Thanks again for being such loyal, dedicated readers. I adore each of you. You and you, and even you. Sometimes you in the back irk the begeezuz out of me but I still adore you. I hope you continue on with my journey to becoming a better cook and baker. I am having a blast exploring new recipes and sharing old faves. You guys make this all worthwhile. Well, maybe not the eating my food cold all the time to get the right shot, but I’m sure I’ll get faster soon. I suppose I can’t really hold you responsible for my lack of photo finesse and speed. I mean I could, but that would be wrong. So I’ll blame the puppy, after all we do blame her for everything.
Toodles and smoochies! xx
