Pleasure to know you

With gratitude

IMG_2144Although I’m on holiday break, I popped back on to say thank you to all my readers and followers. I’m letting you know that I will probably be back sometime in January (?)… maybe…perhaps…not sure. I’m ashamed to say and some of you already knew that I’m not really an organized person so to discover that, in an oh-my-word moment … I’ve been blogging for 4 years?

That’s lots of foods! Right? If not for my love of food, I probably would have starved…I mean I’m thinner! I adore things associated with food, like seeing someone grinning over whatever I fixed or getting a praise of ‘wow! or someone describing me as a great cook…who? me? why thank you!  I am blessed to have my husband who shares my emphasis of cooking, he is my sues chef…very patient sues chef and often a wish granter…
Oo-la- la, look at this! Don’t you wish to have this for breakfast tomorrow? As you wish, he might would say.DSC_5660
Gift of holiday sweets and snacks we received. And the left over orange and chocolate pound cake (on the plate) I made for someone…they liked it!

Anyway, my blogger friends, you’re marvelous! You inspired me tremendously over the years with your photographs or your stories..oh yeah, and your foods!  I may not cook like Dentist for example, your foods are a feast for my eyes! Your stories are compelling, full of laughter and even in sadness, I saw hope, that’s I think beautiful!

So Thank You again from the bottom of my heart… and know that I’m wishing you the best.

Highlight of last week!

Here is a inconceivably bad picture I took…as if I was star – stricken.
……Anybody want a chicken? just kidding!

I hate for people to die embarrassed…right.

  12. Dear Nipponnin, I do hope it's a festive season's blues that made you hesitate about the return. I was deeply moved reading your kind words. You are such an inspiration to me (and all of us), I cannot imagine you not coming back in EARLY January! Happy New Year and I hope to see and read you very very soon!
