That's the theme for 2010. I can't believe it's 2010. An apology if you've actually been trying to follow this blog - you know, clicking the link, hoping for something tasty, and disappointed to find the same "Vini, Vidi, Vace" post for months. Here's the thing - I moved 3 (yes, three) times in 2009. That's three times signing up on and changing my address. Three times changing all my billing information for every single account. Three times hauling my belongings all over the District of Columbia. And, in none of these places did I ever hook up the internet. So, I'm finally settled and I have a really lovely little kitchen to cook in, and I'm newly engaged, and I'm all kinds of happy to get on with my life. And my internet's getting installed on Friday.

Usually I like to do a review of the ups and downs of the past year...but, in the vein of starting things on a positive note, I'm going to give you a list of my 2009 highlights:

-Along with my really wonderful cousin and aunt, published a cookbook!
**visit if you're interested in ordering one.

-My best friend asked me to marry him

I'm still cooking - but less, as I don't have a dishwasher who isn't also my fiance. I moved near Eastern Market - my favorite is taking $10 to the market and finding out what I can make for dinner with it - there have been a lot of roasted chickens with sweet potatoes and parsnips. You can't beat it, really. Anyway, I'm back with my cookerings, can't wait to have the internets turned on in my apartment. As always, thanks for visiting the blog, and cheers to 2010.
