Looking Back

I just read my 2015 Year in Blogging, so I decided to have a look back to see what I’ve written on this day in years past, Facebook-On-This-Day style. 

I haven’t published anything on December 29.

But I did find The Fish.
Oh my, that fish. I’ll have to ask my mother if she remembers cooking a whole fish and scarring me for life. I’m willing to bet that she doesn’t. 

My most-commented-on post this year was also about food; sandwiches, in fact. Yesterday Ian and I had sandwiches for lunch with a fellow blogger, her husband, and their triplets. We even discussed several of the points I made in that post. Because sandwiches are serious business. 

Jesse’s book brought me the most views in one day, but my Listserve win brought the most views on one post.  There’s some food for thought; one single real-life friend brought me more traffic with a Facebook share as did my own email to 22,000 strangers. Pretty neat, though. 

It’s been a solid year in blogging for me. Especially since I decided to post every day. Seven months in and still going! 

If I could just find the time and inclination to finish up my NaNo project…


I’m Spoiled

Last night I said I’d love some cod with hollandaise, so of course Ian said he would make some for dinner.

We went to the grocery store after Abby left, and lo and behold, there was a huge sign just inside the door proclaiming cod on sale! But they were out, so I got a nice swordfish steak, along with some broccoli.

Once dinner time came around, Ian was a cooking machine. And so we had:

Swordfish, broccoli, and long grain and wild rice, with hollandaise sauce. It was so good, I ate in tiny bites with curled toes. Ian hates hollandaise, but he makes it so well. And now I can have egg whites for breakfast tomorrow, too!
