Fabulous Food Blog Award
I just received a “Fabulous Blog Award” for My Carolina Kitchen from fellow North Carolina writer Kathryn Stripling Byer of Here, Where I Am. Kathryn, a published poet, writer and teacher, is North Carolina’s current Poet Laureate, appointed by the Governor in 2005 to serve as an ambassador of North Carolina literature, past and present. Kathryn and I are members of the North Carolina Writers Network, Netwest.
Vicki Lane, mystery writer and author of the Elizabeth Goodweather Appalachian Mysteries, passed the “Fabulous Blog Award” to Kathryn. I am honored to be in the presence of such wonderful writers.
I really appreciate this award from Kathryn. There are many wonderful blogs that I enjoy and they aren’t necessarily all about food, but after all it is my first passion. The following blogs are representative of interesting food throughout the world, including South Africa and France. I am passing the "Fabulous Blog Award" along to:
These five blogs are invited to pass along the “Fabulous Blog Award.” The rules aren’t mine, they came with the award. You must pass it on to five other Fabulous Bloggers in a post. You may find their email addresses on their Profile page or, if not available, post as a "Comment" to their latest post.
You must include the person that gave you the award and link it back to them. You must list five of your “Fabulous Addictions” in the post.
You must copy and paste these rules in the post.
Right click the award icon and save to your computer; then post with your own awards. To my way of thinking, this is a nice tribute and it widens the reading audience.
Along with passing the award along, the rules say you must list five of your “Fabulous Addictions.”
These are my passions for seeking the good life or, as the French say, La Bonne Vie.
1. I love books, but I’m a Foodie and can’t have enough cookbooks.
2. The south of France is a Foodie’s heaven and I wish we could spend more time there.
3. The Abaco Islands. I miss our friends and the good times we shared when we lived there.
4. Shoes, what woman can have enough shoes.
5. For good measure, throw in a few baubles, say a little Louie Vuitton bag, a couple of pieces of nice jewelry and a passport.
Thanks again Kathryn for the “Fabulous Blog Award.”
