Dear friends, readers, strangers and loved ones. Thank you for the wonders that 2011 held for me – the loss of a friend, a country move, lots of food and still intense passion about cooking and learning and sharing.
I feel blessed to be me, surrounded by a world of amazing people – you. Every single one of you made and make a difference, every kind word soothed my aching soul, every shared remembrance filled me with joy. Thank you.
I haven’t been a diligent blog reader as in the past. I still love you.
In 2012, I have plans of starting of a monthly ‘Cook Naija tour’, where I introduce one recipe from my beloved country and we experiment with it. At the moment, the details are sketchy. I’m off on holiday to Ghana, the first time I’m visiting an African country apart from Nigeria. I am excited. However, I will not be taking my laptop and so will not be blogging…meaning my proposed Cook Naija thing may not happen till February.
Regardless, I hope to do more with my love and passion for food in 2012.
Here’s to lots of love, laughter, peace and joy to you and yours, I hope you continue to find fulfillment and comfort in knowing that there are ties that bind us all – they are as strong as family bonds and as full of promise as we desire.
