another year over... and here's to 2009!

Wow! Where did that one go?

Well, wherever it went, I'm certainly looking forward to the next one. 2008 hasn't seen a great deal of kitchen action from me (having it rebuilt for half of the year didn't exactly help, while family and personal illness occupied far too much of the rest of the year), so I'm ready and raring to go in 2009. Whether I can get myself sufficiently organised to take pictures at the same time remains to be seen. You never know.

I will read more, write more, and eat more. I will try not to drink more unless it's non-alcoholic. Which seems unlikely.

And what else can I promise you?

Ah, yes. There will be a lot more of this:


Chocolate is the new wine. Yes, really. Just you wait. And then remember where you heard it first.

So there you are. That's me.

And you? Well, whatever you're doing, and whatever your hopes, dreams and resolutions for 2009, I hope you have a wonderful, all-star, food- and fun-filled time.


AFoS xx

A woman after my own heart. I have been calling 2009 the year of more. Eating more hamburgers, writing more, having more fun. No deprivation allowed!

For some of us (i.e. me!) chocolate always has been the new everything!
