Happy birthday to me!

Or rather, happy birthday to Eating Like A Horse, a year old today… hasn’t he grown?!


I can’t believe I’ve been spouting my mindless rubbish for a full (count ’em) 365 days. That’s a lot of random ramblings… but my first post, on Blogger, was Tuesday, July 20, 2010.

So to mark the occasion, and because I missed out on the party last week and couldn’t bear to again, here is…

What I’ve Eaten This Year… not quite all of it though πŸ™‚

First up, breakfast:

I couldn’t pick a best breakfast of the year because there have been so many good ones! But this bread pudding, inspired by Lindsay’s great recipe, with banana bread, a mashed banana in the batter and using peanut flour, immediately sprang to mind – so good!

Next up, lunch.

My lunches aren’t usually adventurous at all but one that I was quite proud of was this:

I love that mushroom soup and it’s only because I’m too lazy that I don’t have it more often for lunch… πŸ™‚

Dinner’s another hard one but I’ll have to go for the cauliflower risotto. Since I first made Alisa’s delicious one, I’ve had a version (with spinach, mushrooms, crack pesto and cheese) so many times. It’s become my staple “I don’t know what to have but this is simple and great” dinner and it’s always brilliant.

Some of the year’s top snackage includes my own weight in these:

I’m not joking.

Plus I hate to think how many chocolate raisins and, of course, my must-have:

Can’t believe I had never heard of this a year ago and now I couldn’t be without it…

It’s just one of so many foods, recipes and ways of cooking I’ve found in the last year. But one of the many things I love about blogging is the sense of community; not only the sharing recipes and tips but the support and friendship you get from it. I’ve “met” so many great people and feel really privileged to be part of it.

With that in mind, and because it’s my (blog’s) birthday, I’m going to give someone a present πŸ™‚

The only thing is, I thought I’d get in with enough time to sort it today but I’ve only just finished dinner and it’s gone 10pm… so I hope I’m not being too much of a tease to say there will be a giveaway in my next post!

Thanks so much to Jen for another WIAW, and if you haven’t got your own WIAW on, or even if you have, go and have a look at those who have; just another great thing about blogging πŸ™‚

If you blog, what do you like about it most? And don’t forget to come back for a giveaway!
