I've been tripping….
Down memory lane.
I've been tagged in a, most interesting, meme by Chez Loulou…
According to her: This particular meme was created when Katie at TripBase was looking back over her blog archives and realized that "not all blog posts are created equal."
Possibly a slight understatment.
The first problem with this particular meme is getting lost on that lane.
For some of us it's a long and winding road.
I'll get on with it, as best I can.
1. Most Beautiful: Rhubarb Yogurt Parfait
I was rather proud of this photo – and the color of the rhubarb sauce. It's not always such a lovely pink.
2. Most Popular:
I had a difficult time with this one… I really don't know. Two came to mind as I was meandering… One on Using and Freezing Zucchini with a recipe for Zucchini Gratin.
And one on Salad Dressings and Eating Real.
3. Most Controversial:
This one was easy. It's the only time I've had people slam me in the comment section. Along with this lovely Potato and Chard Gratin
I did a bit of commentary on the behavior of politicians. It's true, I do not write a political blog…. but I was speaking about simple good behavior, not making any political statements. I did a similar post the next day, on Health Care… apparently all the people who promised to quit reading my blog did, because that didn't get near the flak, and it was more controversial.
4. Most Helpful: My Guidelines on Cooking for Two.
With lots of recipe ideas….
5. Post that suprised me with it's success:
I don't know if success would quite by the correct term, but the response I got on the 2 posts I did, so very close together last winter on the deaths of our 2 beloved dogs, Sedi and Emma, was completely unexpected, overwhelming, comforting and wonderful.
Yeah, I know, I'm supposed to be a food blog…. But, IMHO, that is the funniest post / funniest story I've ever written. If you disagree, please tell me which one you think is funnier…..
7. Post I'm most proud of: Memorial Day: France and America
Again, not a food post….
I wrote it, I know the story, but re-reading it still brought a tear to my eye.
And there you have it….
I'll probably change me mind tomorrow, but this was a lot of fun…. Plus some embarassing, albeit private, moments.
Now I get to pass it on to bloggers whose 7 Links I would be interested in reading:
Chris of Mele Cotte
Kalyn of Kalyn's Kitchen
Mimi of French Kitchen in America
Jeanne of Cook Sister
Lydia of The Perfect Pantry
Yes, I can hear those thoughts about being tagged, but, really, this look back on old posts was fun, something I wouldn't normally take the time to do…. Bon Courage!
