Obligatory End-of-Year Blog Post

31 December, 2009

Happy New Year!

I can’t say I’m completely sorry to ring 2009 out, but it has been a year of food revelations and yummy treats. This went from all-purpose blog to food blog to food blog I forget to update for enormous stretches of time. Our family went from eating out of bags and cans (figuratively – we use plates…most of the time) to filling bags and cans with food!

We made our own cheese, canned tomatoes, pickles (and more pickles). We made mixed berry, blackberry, cranberry, jalepeño and basil jams. Brandon became a master baker of many, many pies, and he made killer ketchup.


Most surprising of all, Adventures In logged nearly 11,000 visitors this year! I’m shocked, befuddled and amazed. I’m humbled and more than a little confused.

I’m pleased as hell. So thank you. Even if, like almost half of my readers, you only dropped by to learn about some really big pizzas.

Thanksgiving 2009

2010 holds great promise, and among my resolutions is “better blogging” – so many of our adventures go unreported…and I know people are dying to know EVERYTHING! We’re looking forward to more baking, canning and cooking, but also to renew our DIY spirit…which for me drifted away a bit in the fall. More needlepoint! More sewing! More crochet! I’m hoping to get the older boy in on more of the activities, and am expecting great things from Mr. Adventures In in the coming year.

And I hope you, whoever you are and wherever you are, have a marvelous 2010 full of amazing adventures of your own.
