Lambs’ Ears had a birthday and I forgot – again!
Oh no, it seems I’ve done it again. I’m a bit hopeless at remembering important dates and have rarely (if ever) remembered the anniversary of this blog. This week I’ve been reminded that my memory has failed again and, in fact, last week Lambs’ Ears had a birthday and turned seven years of age.
I had no idea when I began this self-indulgent little ramble where it would take me and never cease to be surprised and grateful in equal measure for the opportunities it has opened out for me.
I certainly had no idea that I’d be working with national and international tourism organisations, major international food brands, writing for one of South Australia’s most prestigious monthly publications and still be meeting and being inspired by local food producers seven years down the track.
I’m especially grateful to you, dear reader, for taking the time each week to read this blog and for interacting both here and on my social media accounts. Your encouragement has motivated me to keep writing, honing my skills and seek out interesting content.
I’ve been having a look at which of my blog posts you have enjoyed most over these seven years. Unsurprisingly, the “Baking” tag rates highly – and far and away the most popular post in that category is my post for the Haigh’s Dark Chocolate Mud Cake.
Pretty apt for a birthday, really, and it totally symbolises my attitude to food- it needs to be authentic, fresh, simple to prepare and punch above it’s weight in flavour.
And it’s in the most important food groups of all – “cake” and “chocolate”!
