So Mistah Brian over there at Love, Food and Beer has generously nominated my Summertime Cooking Tips for the Very Lazy and Semi-Health Conscious post for a Wonderful Team Readership Award-y thingie!
It gave me a chance to take a look around and check out some new people and places in Blogworld and I loved discovering the varied voices out there in the void. It’s been great reading.
Congrats and thanks again!
I should mention that there is a “chain letter”-type element that goes along with this and encourage you to find 14 blog posts that you enjoyed and to share them as well. If that’s your thing. I personally would have stopped at 7 because I am, after all, very lazy. But then I would never have found the rest of you crazy kids. Keep up the fabulous work and pass it along!
