An Overdue Thank You

I'm finally catching up on a host of to-dos this weekend, now that my school year is finally winding down. With only one more report to write, and two weeks of co-op left (yikes, that's only 2 weeks left for me to write my job application to the BGC!!), I've been able to decompress a little bit. Of course, I owe a lot of my tension relief to the Club, and my supervisor, who allow me to go in and spend eight hours doing what I love to do above all else - cooking for people with no other purpose than to make them smile.

One of the many things I definitely had to do this weekend was to finally say thank you to Bonita (of Bon Eats) for bestowing the honour of a Kreativ Blogger award on me. Like Bon, my blog is clearly a casual hobby of mine - I'd be firing myself if it was anything professional - but I do try to be as fresh as I can!

Apparently we have some rules to follow though:
  1. You must thank the person who has given you the award.
  2. Copy the award logo and place it on your blog.
  3. Link the person who has nominated you for the award.
  4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
  5. Nominate 7 other Kreativ Bloggers.
  6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
  7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs to let them know they have been nominated.
So, to pass this along (spreading the love!!) here is my "short list" of "Kreativ" Bloggers - choosing seven out of the many out there that deserve the honour was way harder than I thought, but I did it!
  1. Micaela of Striving Bean
  2. Marye of Restless Chipotle
  3. Kimberly of Poor Girl Eats Well
  4. Ninette of Big, Bold, Beautiful Food
  5. Lindsay and Taylor of Love and Olive Oil
  6. Lydia of The Perfect Pantry
  7. Vincci of Ceci n'est pas un food blog
You all rock, and I hope you all enjoy the honour (and pay it forward to some other awesome bloggers out there!).

Hmm, so now to find 7 interesting things about me (this is the hardest part, really!).
  1. I adopted and named my cat purely because of a dream I had one night - of finding a purely black kitten in a dish cupboard, and hence naming her Dish.
  2. I'm a gung-ho participant in Project 365 (I definitely suggest checking it out!).
  3. I collect two things (other than cookbooks) - analog clocks and elephants. I'm even considering weaving the two together into a tattoo design.
  4. Speaking of tattoos, I have one - a black and white "sketch" design of Tinkerbell on my thigh.
  5. I abhor the taste of avocado and coconut. Always have. Don't know why!
  6. I do however, have a very strange affinity for pickled food - I love pickled ginger, pickled onions, vinegary coleslaw, sauerkraut and best of all - kosher dills! I do draw the line at kimchi and pickled eggs, though.
  7. I am incapable of working on a task without doing at least one other thing - call it ADD, massive distraction, or "this generation" syndrome!
Well, that's it for me tonight!! Next up, just one of the bajillion cakes I've been making!
