Aside from this new vegan friendly curry recipe I’ve just posted, I also have some smoothie recipes & more ice pop recipes coming your way, so stay tuned. You’ll have to forgive my delay in response & visits to all of your lovely websites due to school & work, but I eventually catch up with all of you. If any of you have the ingredients lying around for this delicious chickpea curry recipe, I hope that you’ll try it because it’s so easy to make & such a crowd pleaser too. Josh loves this recipe & claims it as “the TRUTH!” so I hope someone tries it out.
It’s about time I announce the winners for the giveaway I hosted a few months ago. Find out after the jump!
& the Winner Is…
The winner of the giveaway is, as luck would have it, Becca! She won by default because the other winner didn’t answer my e-mail after a few attempts to contact her. Additionally, about 4 of the 5 winners didn’t get back to me when I e-mailed them. To streamline this process, I’m choosing the first 4 commenters that entered the giveaway to win the ad spot. Apparently, most of those that participated in this giveaway don’t check their e-mails so I don’t know how they expected to get their prize…? Also, I’m just going to make the adverts for all 5 of the winners so it’s easier. I think it’s only fair that my real visitors actually be rewarded rather than randoms that have no intention of visiting again. This is my tiny gift to thank you, the visitor, for visiting. I’m not sorry for being cheesy.
I celebrated my birthday a few weeks ago with just Josh on one day at Balboa Island & then with my closest friends & family on another. It was supposed to be a potluck dinner, but there were more bags of chips than there were meals. I’m especially thankful to Ben for making matzoh ball soup even though the balls weren’t fluffy, Jimmy for making last-minute guacamole that was absolutely delicious, Kevin for making beaucoup de grougères (French cheese puffs) parceque ils étaient magnifiques, Michelle for making so much amazing flan, Steven for making excellent mashed potatoes with a vegetarian gravy, & Quyen for getting a box full of cream puffs. A huge thanks to Viviane & Vy for helping me clean the dishes & much love to Josh for helping me cook & for making salmon burgers. I’m thankful to everyone who showed up with something–even if it was just bags of chips–or just showing up in general.
