Some News and 5 Things’ About Me

Firstly, It’s almost 2007 - so Happy New Year to all of you!

9rules Leaf ImageSecond, starting the year as we mean to go on, RealEpicurean.com is now a member of 9rules - or so we’re led to believe, by this post (still waiting for official confirmation). If you don’t know what 9rules is, head on over there and find out - you won’t be disappointed. More from me on this in later posts.

Finally, it turns out that I was “tagged” by Lil at iFaNTaBuLouS for a meme called “5 Things You Didn’t Know About Me” a couple of days ago. Far be it from me to refuse to play along!

In the spirit of the meme, here’s 5 things you (probably) didn’t know about me:

1. I’m currently studying for a degree in my spare time at home…Modules including Social Science, Computers, and Business Studies. Basically I don’t have any spare time!

2. I was far too lazy in school. Perhaps if I’d paid more attention instead of messing around so much, I wouldn’t be sat here doing a degree at 27 years old…

3. I love Greek food above all else. Don’t ask me why - I have no idea. It’s not flashy, just tasty. As I type, I can smell tonights dinner (Stifado) cooking, and it smells delicious.

4. My family originates in Scotland. I’m English born and bred, but take me to the highlands any time. It feels like it should be my home, even if it isn’t. Someone please give me enough money to build a house there.

5. I’m going to be running a food blogging even called “Local Food Blogging” very soon. Watch this space…

I beleive it’s customary to tag 5 more people to continue the meme - I’ll tag only 3: Brilynn at Jumbo Empanadas, Simonetta at San Lorenzo, Michelle at AllThingsMichelle, and Ari at Baking and Books.

There you go - last post of 2006. More recipes, wild food foraging, and seasonal cooking coming soon!

    You really want to know 5 things about me???
    Actually, this meme will be a transition back into blogging for me after my wonderful week at the beach, I will have to find something to cook up to go along with it… Expect a response sooner rather than later.
