Recovery at last!

Hi everyone! Sorry about being away for so long. After my daughter's grad activities, my whole family and I got so sick with the flu. It was really bad, sore throats, fevers...you name it. The good side to it is that while laying down all day and watching TV for days on days, I've come to enjoy this new show on TLC called 'Take Home Chef''.
It's about a (handsome) chef who goes into grocery stores and selects a person who he will buy groceries for and cooks them a fabulous dinner. I wish he'd come here! I'd probably never let him leave!!!! hehehe

Hurray! You are back! You've recovered! Welcome Back! I am so so happy and you've been missed.

I understand what you mean when you want the chef over....heeee....I'll be happy to cook for you.

Just happy to 'see' you back on blogland again :P

Hi! Thanks for stopping by at my blog...hope you "passed a good time!"

I love your blog! Both of mine are "pinkish"...but my favorite colors are purple and green...go figure!

Glad to know you are over that nasty flu. It must have been rough for all of you to be sick at the same time. Ick. The flu bites!

Take it easy and catch up slowly. No need to burn out...your body's been through enough.

Oh! And when does this show come on? I saw the previews and wanted to watch it...but somehow I missed it. Bummer!

My first visit...this is a grand site! I hope all goes well with you and you have the support of your friends and fellow food bloggers. As for the Take Home Chef show..I am entertained by it. I'm just angry because they always pick women who look as though they barely eat and don't have the passion for food like the rest of us..heheh I'm a little jealous!
