Daily Decadent - One Year Old

Daily Decadent crossed the one year mark - back in September. I don't know how I missed it. But then I missed Labour Day and the season change. Labour Day I skip because I like to forget anything remotely connected to the word "labour." I mean, really. Can't they come up with something better than that? So as the world turns, Decadent Housewife is still in her kitchen. Thank you everyone who stop by here. On average there are about two of you who show up regularly. I can't think what the rest of you have for an excuse. But I know how it is. And thank you to all who leave comments and those who are followers. I stalked every one of you and discovered very interesting people and blogs doing this.Daily was started as a way of finding out if my adult male children can hear. Unable to determine this much "live," I now get unprompted, stuff like,
"So that's why Sunday's lunch tasted weird...
"I had no idea I was actually related to her...
"You stick, spinach, in the brownies?...
"So that's what happened to my shirts...
"I never knew you stuck, spinach, in the brownies."
It soon proved to be an easy way to share a recipe, "Go look on the blog." Saucey Chef has been directed to find it here. Even I have run to hunt up a recipe posted here, after discovering the directions mysteriously gone from my card file. Look, I'm far older than Jessica Seinfeld - I thought of sticking spinach in brownies sometime after Woodstock. To be honest, I've thought of shutting it down - it takes a lot of effort when I could be doing things like, reading your blogs or washing floors or sorting the five thousand books we have chucked downstairs taking up valuable space. Oh. I haven't told you about that? The books got moved from room A to room B after one of our annual basement floods a few years ago, on account of one of our annual sump pump failures and never got moved back because we had to pitch all the carpet. Then Buff scarfed the space for a workout room and we couldn't re-carpet with him sweating all over the place and of course the sump would just fail again if we did re-carpet on account of that Murphy's Law thing. Anyway, Roll Kuchen casually mentioned the other day she had downloaded a recipe from here and I thought, hmmm. OK. I'll finish the box. And there is still the fruit cake recipe. Relax. It's not all that bad. Really. And we are coming into rainy season, so that's always good for more poetry...In celebration of one year of Daily Decadent, Decadent Housewife is holding a draw. Leave a comment and if you like, it will go into my apron pocket and we will draw out a name and decide what to send you. It won't be complicated - likely an apron - which I will go and whip up after reclaiming some sewing space from Fun. And after I finish writing some poetry - it's raining.

Happy anniversary, Decadent. I hadn't realized your blog was so young. It has a much more mature and well-developed feel to it than most one-year-old blogs. No wonder I like it here even though I'm a guy and am not supposed to hang out on Mommy Blogs.

BTW - isn't that supposed to be hash that goes in the brownies? Or maybe spinach would have kept some of my friends on the more positive side of the law back in the day.

Happy anniversary!

I was hoping you would say you would send the winner a white chocolate blueberry cheesecake :) or at the very least some sticky buns!

I'm glad I found you, anyway! You are a good cyber friend! xoxo!

Happy 1st Blogaversary!!

I agree with Richard D above, your blog is way too mature to be only 1 year old.

I love the photo's, recipes and I love the banter that goes with them all.

Keep on doing what you do so well.

Lisha xx

Happy Blogoversary!!! Please don't shut it down. I might not always make it over here to comment, but I always read your posts...and I would really miss your poetry, your photos, your recipes, your wit...well...I'd really miss everything. So please write my name on a slip of paper and tuck it in your apron...pretty please? And I hope that your weekend is delightful, dear friend.

Well, I don't think I often post. Okay, maybe I've never posted, but I read and enjoy your blog! I too am a mom with grown wolves and can relate to many of your posts!! Absolutely loved the passport blog. Verify your job? Now really.
Keep writing. Please. And write my name as Pam, not Mrs. T.
Thanks!

I am a horrific cook so but love to imagine I can effect the essence of your posts. I love your pictures. Thanks for taking the time to share.

Happy Bloggiversary. (What you - and other bloggers - never really know is how many people visit regularly but only comment occasionally.)

Camille said...

Oh I am salivating over your Julia Child collection! :-) I LOLd at the Jessica Seinfeld comment (I'm still chuckling happily to myself)!

Love your blog and I do subscribe! Happy Bloggiversary!

Congratulations
Much love and many blessings
Love Jeanne♥

Shut down?!! Parish the thought!

Happy Bloggiversary!I love your recipes, and your wit, and getting to see your lovely side of the world.

I really love your recipe card photos in this post. It was so heartening to see that I'm not the only one with tattered, yellowed recipes (and you should see my favorite cookbook, oy!). My mom's never looked like that, but alas, I did not receive that gene!

I think the last year was far better because your blog does exist. Please don't go away. If you do, I won't know who I want to be when I grew up.

Adeena said...

Wow! A whole year old. :D Happy Anniversary!

I can so relate to the Murphy's Law factor... ;)
