Bidding adieu to 2009

by spiceaholic on December 29, 2009

I don’t know about you, but I am READY for 2010 start.

2009 hasn’t been the easiest year for me — not so good job news for both of us and family health scares are some of the biggies.  But enough harping on bad stuff.  Plenty of good stuff happened on this blog, so that’s what I’m going to focus on!

  1. I posted every month this year.  Those of you who have been faithful readers from the beginning know how sporadic I was about posting.
  2. I joined FoodBuzz and became a Featured Publisher.
  3. BSI contests!
  4. Meeting so many wonderful people in the blogosphere
  5. Bento!!
  6. Making my blog my own — I moved over from Blogger to my own domain earlier this year and then revamped everything and even renamed my site recently.  I wanted my blog to be a good fit for me and I think it’s getting there!

After seeing some of you doing this on your blogs, I decided to put together a list of some of my favorite bento and recipe posts from this year (in no particular order):

A Bento Breakthrough

Red Enchilada Chicken

A Short and Sweet Treat

Playing With Your Food Can Be Fun

Raspberry Lemon Mini-Cheesecakes with Gingersnap Crust

Lightning Fast Fried Rice

Thunder Snow and Some Good Eats

Spicy French Toast

Double Header: General Tso’s Chicken and Veggie Lo Mein

Tangy Salmon Cakes

Herbed Ricotta Gnudi with Shrimp and Pesto

Sweet Strawberry Samosas

Aw, despite the bad stuff in 2009, I’m sure you’ll see the silver lining in them by the end of 2010. That said, I can’t wait for the new year, too!
Happy, Blessed, Joyful New Year!!

Sorry to hear this was a bad year for you. Hopefully the next one will be full of durprises…of the good kind! 🙂
P.S: I finally caught up on all your posts…..your post about the visit to your in-laws was my favorite. LOVED the sem ki phalli pictures.

Yay, Nabeela! I think this year will be a good one, hope it is for you too! I will try to experiment with the sem this weekend!
