The Meat Awards
I am delighted to have been nominated for a few awards for my meat musings. Those of you who visit more often will know that I use the term ‘meat’ rather loosely. Not that I approve of loose meat. Tender yes. Loose no. Back to the awards:
Best Blog by a Newcomer – Blog Awards Ireland 2012
I was a bit surprised to make it to the shortlist in the Irish Blog Awards 2012. I was amazed to become a finalist in the Best Blog by a Newcomer category and I was stunned when I won it. Sadly, I was not there on the night of the awards and missed a great session by all accounts. Still, there’s always next year, if I can fool the judges again.
The Versatile Blogger Award
If I were more versatile, I would feel more worthy about having been awarded this.
Thank you to Happiness Stan Lives Here who first nominated me some time ago. At the time, I did not know what it meant and just ignored it. Apologies for that faux pas.
Give it up too for foodashion.com who also saw fit to mention my versatility through a nomination.
Thank you too to Steph at Cultural Quirks. I don’t deserve it. I like it, but I don’t deserve it.
And, as if that were not enough, The Wanderlust Gene has done likewise. I am not that versatile, I assure ye all.
The Very Inspiring Blogger Award
I have to admit to not feeling very inspiring or inspired most of the time. Thank you to Tasha at foodashion.com for also nominated me for this wonderfully artworked award. As did Anna Shortcakes. Far too generous in their praise for my ramblings.
The Sunshine Award
If I can bring a little sunshine into your day, then it’s a good day for me too.
Thank you to Four Blue Hills for nominating me for this.
The Liebster Award
If I can bring a little Liebster into your day, then it adds to the Sunshine. This one was thrown to me by my daughter from her Decidedly Delicious blog. I am unsure of her real motivations.
The Kreative Blogger Award
That’s Creative with a K. Very creative in itself, for sure. Another nomination from my nemesis, sorry, loving eldest daughter. I’ll take the plaudits from anywhere. Just so long as she doesn’t think I am going to provide a link to Decidedly Delicious. Oh, no. No way.
The Two Chances Award
This is the one that everybody really wants. It is not passed out like rice at a wedding. It is really, really exclusive. I launched it in early June 2012. See the post here. If you are lucky enough to be brought within the tiny exclusive band of magnificence that is the Two Chance Award Winners Circle, welcome. If you are not, you know how many chances you have.
The 7*7 Link Award
A big thank you to Mama Miyuki Easy Pantsy for nominating me for this one.
One Lovely Blog Award
Giaigi over at Giangi’s Kitchen nominated me for this award. I am honoured, given the state of my Italian cooking.
The Super-Sweet Award
My blogging Friend Barb Beecham over in the Sierra Foothills nominated me for this one. I don’t think that Super Sweet describes me very well but I am touched by the award.
The Liebster Blog Award (Mark 2)
Corinna over at Cooking with Corinna was kind enough to nominate me for this one. Humbled I am to accept this. I like the newer design of the award too.
