You may have noticed that I haven't posted all week. That's because, just like everyone else, I'm really busy. I'm still too busy to blog, but
I did want to give you a preview of coming attractions that I will give full details on in future posts. (This sentence is contradictory because first I tell you that I'm too busy to blog and now here I am, blogging!)
Update on my Cookbook Class: For the orientation, I asked everyone what the most important ingredient is that goes into a cookbook. The answer is PASSION. Three people got it right. You've got to put your whole heart and soul into it. You have to totally love your cookbook if you want it to love you back. Chef Bliss was the first one to answer and she won a copy of The Path to Publishing Your Book. The prize was going to be a copy of Recipe for a Cookbook, but she already won that in the Gift for a Foodie post. The next two class sessions will be Bite Your Cookbook and What's Wrong With This Recipe?
Speaking of Chef Bliss -- don't you just love the way I segue into paragraphs? It's somewhat of a talent (?) -- she's created a great award to share the foodie love. And she's letting you "steal" it and give it to any blogger you want as a way to thank them for creating delicious food. Now what foodie blogger wouldn't love that? Plus, she's sharing her award-winning Pea Soup. Chef Bliss is one of my newest foodie friends and I just love her. Visiting her blog brings you a sense of -- oh, I don't know -- bliss, perhaps? Or maybe you feel her happiness because she's following her bliss.
Tyler, what can I say? I've missed the last few Tyler Florence Fridays and was planning to participate today -- I made his Spaghetti and Meatballs last night on the recommendation of Natashya -- but other things came up and got in the way. I'll blog about this next Friday, but be warned: There's a recipe-writing rant involved, which some
of you may find amusing if only for the fact that Tyler is doing his best to make us fat.
I'm sure you've heard the adage, "All work and no play makes John
a very dull boy." Let me rephrase that: All work and no play makes Gloria very crabby! I've been working way too hard and not playing, so today I'm taking a doggy day. I do them once a month and today
is the day. My two little babies, Jodi and Moki, are in for a real treat! Well, not according to them, but I think it's fun. They get brushed. They get their nails clipped. They get a bath. And then they get a bone. They get bones more than once a month, but this is their special treat after their doggy day ordeal.
Tonight, I get to play one of
my favorite roles: Grandma! My grandsons are coming over for
a sleep-over -- a pajama party. We're going to watch movies, eat popcorn, play, laugh, and have lots of fun -- and they'll be waking up to a chocolate chip pancake breakfast.
That's all for now folks. I'm off to torture, I mean treat, my dogs to
a special day.
