Thankful and blessed. I really am. here’s no other way to tell you guys how I feel. There have been times when I didn’t want to get out of bed or moments when there seemed nothing to be thankful for, but God saw me through and here I am, 32- thankful and blessed.
I celebrated the day cooking, taking photos of food, more cooking, thanking well wishers on Facebook. I attempted to kick back and get lost in the book I was reading but Aurora didn’t allow that to happen. So i went back to the kitchen and grabbed my camera and started shooting away, again. And you know what? Today, I got the most number of hits since I started blogging here! Isn’t that exciting?
I must warn you that this post will be flooded with pictures. I went shutter crazy today. Well, not really, but I took a decent amount of photos. Like the picture above and right below this paragraph, I decided to play with food while bringing the cheese to room temperature before the guests arrived.
I decided to keep it simple this year. I bought cheese and pate. Quick and no cooking involved except for some elbow grease trying to slice the baguette with a dull knife. For dinner, I served fish piccata and tossed angel hair pasta. I will share the recipe if I’m up to it or when I try to make the recipe again. I wasn’t able to get a decent picture because my friends started coming. But fine, if you insist.
This is a really bad photo. Anyway, I invited 2 of my friends over and it was fun. It was all the company I needed. I just hope they really enjoyed my very simple dinner. I must say I’m quite disappointed they didn’t like the duck and pork liver pate. Hmm…makes you wonder. More for me though. Yay!
And here’s the crew
Ok, so maybe I over exaggerated when I said there’s a lot of pictures. I think this is just the right amount of pictures to show you what fun night we had and some of the things I do when there’s food and a camera.
Looking forward to more adventures this year. 🙂
