In my last post when I told you all that I am away in Fiji, I forgot to mention in it that I guest posted on the Bob’s Red Mill blog with a recipe for Broccolini, Corn, and Shrimp Quinoa with Olive Oil Lemon Garlic Dressing last week. I tweeted the link and posted it on Facebook, though I thought I would mention it here for those of you who aren’t on Twitter or Facebook and might have missed it.
Remember, if you’re looking for a particular recipe, or you’re just browsing, you can always check out the ever-expanding recipe index.
Tomorrow (Monday, October 10th) is Fiji Day, celebrating Fiji’s independence from the British for forty-one years and all the celebrations this weekend are leading up to it. (My Dad told us that, thankfully, Fiji’s independence was non-violent and was a generally peaceful affair.)
As it is also the Canadian Thanksgiving long weekend, I wish all my readers a Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Fiji Day!
I am writing this from Fiji! I’m here for a month with my Dad and sister visiting my grandfather and grandmother. Today is our first day here, proper. The trip itself has been so much of an adventure and it was also the first time that my sister and I have been on a plane. I like flying, except for the turbulence. I don’t know if or when I’ll ever get used to it.
This is, basically, an opportunity of a lifetime so I want to be here for all of it and be in the moment – I didn’t even bring my iPod Touch! Thus, I won’t be blogging as much or responding to comments or approving them as quickly as I usually do (if you’ve commented on my posts before, your comment should come right through without needing approval) as well as responding to emails. I also won’t be as active on Twitter.
Thank you to everyone who entered in the giveaway for The Gluten-Free Asian Kitchen by Laura B. Russell. We had so many entries and it was also a wonderful opportunity to get to know more of my readers. This was my first giveaway, and I look forward to doing more in the near future.
