Many thanks to fsszj of Household arts and science fame for awarding me the Inspiring Blog Award.
It’s an honor to be recognized by a person like fssz. Her blog is the epitome of the art of home management. She covers such topics as arts and crafts, cooking, education and research, family relationships, health and nutrition, hospitality, human development, and most importantly, real-life responsibilities. fsszj somehow finds the most wonderful and popular recipes and household hints ever. Do look this one up. You won’t be sorry you spent the time.
Inspiring: from the verb Inspire – to encourage or stimulate. Synonyms – Exciting, exhilarating, galvanizing, swaying, stirring.
Eureka! Now I get it. My blog is definitely intended to get people stirring – stirring up simple healthful tasty foods in their own cozy kitchens. I’m into trying to get families excited about spending time together around the table. I galvanize folks, or at least try to, into taking a little time to make meals special. I feel exhilarated when people remember where they came from enough to cherish their family’s traditions. I try to sway people of all ages into trying new foods that they cook from scratch with unprocessed ingredients.
So if just a few of you make a few small changes in these directions, or feel inspired to continue on a path you’ve already embarked upon, maybe my efforts here are worth while. Thanks to fsszj for making Vinny feel appreciated.
Here are a few other blogs I’ve been reading lately that make me feel inspired. I hope they will do the same for you. Nominated in turn for the Inspiring Blog Award are:
