|My morning visitor and seed thief...|
Good Morning Fellow Bloggers,
I woke up this morning just in time to see this young buck helping himself to my bird seed. He really enjoys the stuff!! I've gone through about 50 pounds of seed in the last month and the birds are getting really annoyed by the deers presence! However, I really don't mind him hanging around because he's just so lovely to look at.
After getting my husband and kids off to school I started cooking a wonderful light lunch for my dear friend Kathie. I haven't seen her in over 5 years, so I'm really excited to see her and catch up. After preparing our lunch I decided to check my emails before she arrives, unfortunately you'll have to wait for the pictures and recipes of today's lunch because I have very exciting news.....
I found this lovely message waiting for me from a newly found blogger friend, Kitchen flavours.....http://mycookinggallery.blogspot.com/2010/08/crunchy-oat-flapjacks-and-award.html?_pl-9wiDs2l6YP7--Qqh6aLUOfJDBwwy9TBch3aIrpE-wQJTstoB1BTaGUi#c8665372093663498731

Exciting news! Good news! I have been given the following "Versatile Blogger Award" by one of the fabulous site whom I really admire, "The Ardent Epicure". As a new blogger with less than a year of blogging, it has been a wonderful adventure and fun way to meet other bloggers who have something very much in common, the love for food! For me, besides sharing our love of food, it is also a way to enable me to connect with friends from all over. It is a reward, when at the end of the day, or some stolen moments during my busy hour, when I sit down in front of my computer, I found someone out there, a blogger friend from far away, took sometime to read my posts and left a comment, however short, really makes my day. Thank you, friends!
