Time for a Meme and Awards

Is there anything better than eating some Iberian Acorn Ham?

That’s a difficult question… but I really do enjoy your company ☺… maybe not as much as a tapa of Iberian Acorn Ham but I’m happy I met you all♥

I just got tagged by Valli from More than a Burnt Toast. She is a beautiful person and her blog reflects her love for life and food. Go take a look and enjoy her posts as much as I do :D.

This Meme has very simple instructions:

*List the Last 10 people who have commented on your blog.
*If you appear on my list, you are tagged and have to do this meme on your own blog too.
*So – who were my last ten commenters?

10) Recipe Girl
9) Laurie from Mediterranean Cooking in Alaska
8) Valli from More than a Burnt Toast
7) Giz from Equal Opportunity kitchen
6) Marianna from History of Greek Food
5) Jenn from The Leftover Queen
4) Emiline from Visions of Sugar Plum
3) Joan from Foodalogue
2) Nikki from Canary Girl
1) Deeba from Passionate about Baking

Now answer the following:

1. What is your favourite post from number 3′s blog? Her herb-crusted pork roast! Go and check and tell me you don’t drool ;D

2. Has number 10 taken any pictures that have moved you? Recipe Girl always has beautiful shots at her site. I think that the food first enters through ones eyes and she does a great job there :D

3. Does number 6 reply to comments on their blog? Yes she does, I just checked that. Thanks Marianna :D.

4. Which part of blogland is number 2 from? She is from Spain!!!! Actually she lives in Canary islands which belong to Spain but they are closer to Africa than to Spain, a wonderful place to leave at… wonderful beaches and people :D. But Nikki is original from America, aren’t you Nikki?

5. If you could give one piece of advice to number 7 what would it be? OOoooops, I don’t think I could give any advice to Giz… she has a wonderful blog shared with her daughter and I love to visit her. Instead, my wish would be that they never get tired of blogging ;D

6. Have you every tried something from number 9′s blog? I know that many of Laurie’s recipes have shocked me!!! She has a precious blog, love her stories of wild Alaska and her pictures and recipes… I might have done one or two or she might have inspired me to perform my own, but I don’t remember now. Go check her blog!

7. Has number 1 blogged something that inspired you? I love everything Deeba bakes because that is what her blog is about… all her creations are so carefully presented: cookies, bread, muffins, cakes… I still have to bake some of her cookies, but she surely is a source of inspiration :D

8. How often do you comment on number 4′s blog? Emiline is such a sweetheart and sweethands ;D!!! All she touches becomes sweet! I comment on every post she makes :D

9. Do you wait for number 8 to post excitedly? Yeeeeeeeees! Valli’s Blog is one of my favourites!!!! Go check and you will agree with me :D

10. How did number 5′s blog change your life? It seems that this meme was made on purpose to answer all my blogging main themes… Jenn really did change my blog life!!!!! When I met her and her blog a new world showed to me! She was so sweet and helpful and her Blogroll was such a fantastic discovery and her monthly challenge foodie Event was perfect to meet other bloggers :D. Just GREAT!

11. Do you know any of the 10 bloggers in person? Not in person, but I think I know them much better than some of my neighbours. I would love to meet them all and have some tapas and a beer in my house terrace.

12. Do any of your 10 bloggers know each other in person? Who knows? I don’t think so.

13. Out of the 10, which updates more frequently? Deeba and Jenn, I think.

14. Which of the 10 keep you laughing? Emiline! She’s got a great and fantastic sense of humour :D, I love all her stories :D

15. Which of the 10 has made you cry (good or bad tears)? Maybe Valli, Jenn and Laurie have the most moving and touching stories.

This was the Meme. And now the Awards I received come from Greece :D. First from Johanna and the second from Ivy, the Excellent Award and the Arte y Pico. Thanks so much girls for thinking about me when giving away your awards :D. Please forgive me for taking so long to post about it.

Here under you will find the blogs I think that deserve both of them:

Maria from Kali Orexi. She is also Greek and her dishes are so true and delicious.

Nathan from La Cocina de Nathan such a hard worker and such delicious latin recipes.

Joan from Foodalogue a smart girl that in no time has been able to get in our kitchens and hearts.

Emiline from Visions of Sugar Plum the sweetest girl in blogosphere :D.

Jen from A2EatWrite. A wonderful person and a great blog!

“is there anything better than eating iberian acorn ham?”


hehe. i agree!

11/12/2008 · 17:48 h by FOODalogue: Meandering Meals and Travels

Double-thanks for the double-mention. You’ve played a big part in the confidence I feel and the support I have received. I’ll be fulfilling my meme obligation as soon as I can get it all together.
P.S. Preciosa, la nena. You should show her off more.

11/12/2008 · 23:11 h by Laurie Constantino

I dream that someday I’ll have access to Iberian ham. I do love Serrano though and think it is pretty darn good!
Oh Nuria, thank you so much for your kind words about my blog. You do such a great job and are the best ambassador for Spanish food around – you beautifully explain just how wonderful it is. I really appreciate the effort you make and am looking forward to the day when you write your cookbook!!!!

son las 2 de la mañana y es ahora q se me antojó comer jamón ibérico… jajaja

11/13/2008 · 15:46 h by Núria

Hola Mallory :D. We couldn’t agree more on Ham!!! The little cuttie is not my daughter… she is kind of my grandaughter (the daughter of my husbands’ daughter) Gosh… a bit difficult to explain.
We are training her palate ;D

Thank you Joan… you are doing a great task, you deserve them :D

Hola Tony! Cualquier hora es buena para comer jamón!

11/13/2008 · 17:06 h by Familia

what a sweet picture with such a happy-ham face! i vote that you post about salon only if you will post about the rosquillas soon afterward!

11/13/2008 · 18:01 h by Núria

Laurie, if you want to do a package exchange, I can send you some Iberian acorn ham and you send me that moose head ;D… just kidding, but really if you want me to send some… let’s talk about it!

Hola Familia!!!! Long time no see :D. Hope everything is fine with you :D. Thanks for voting here… ok, first salmon and after rosquillas.

11/13/2008 · 18:57 h by taste memory

little cutie ~ how sweet! training the palate early….very good idea

11/13/2008 · 20:30 h by Ivy

Sorry I wasn’t here to be one of the ten to comment on your blog. I missed you and you are right Iberian Ham is great, I am luck you sent me some but guess what I bought from France?? I got some chorizo and can’t wait to try it. Have you got a recipe link to send me?
Thanks for the invitation to visit you in Spain. I wish I could but who knows?

11/13/2008 · 22:05 h by Bellini Valli

Thanbks for the kind words Nuria. I always learn something new when I visit. I thionk you should post both recipes…wink…wink…

11/13/2008 · 23:42 h by Maria

Thank you so much Nuria! You’re the best!
What a beautiful little girl. I think those rosquillas would really hit the spot tomorrow … :)

11/14/2008 · 7:32 h by Emily

This sounds like fun. I’m going to try to remember to do it. I’m feeling lazy right now.

Thank you for the nice words!

I pick sweet. :)

11/14/2008 · 8:17 h by Núria

Hola Taste Memory! Kids can get anything out of me… I love them!!! And this one specially ;D

Hola Ivy! Don’t be sorry, good for you! Next week is my turn, I go to Budapest! I’ll send you over some chorizo recipes :D

Hola Valli :D. I’ll post both for sure ;D. Have a great weekend.

Ok, Maria…. one that goes for sweet :D. You deserve them girl!!!

Amy, Whenever you have a kid, send her/him over for summer holidays and I will feed them with the best Spanish food :D :D

Hola Emily! Whenever you feel like… no problem… Of course, you pick sweet ;D

11/14/2008 · 9:55 h by FoodJunkie

Your welcome, you so much deserve it!

11/14/2008 · 22:59 h by Nathan

Thanks your so sweet :) I love awards ha ha.

The “E” for excellent made me laugh because here in America (don’t know if in Europe) the type of format used for the “E” is used to rate video games based on age (there is E for everyone, T for teen, M for mature, and A for adult) something like that. Not that anyone listens to it ha ha (mischievous children he he I’m 18 now though)

11/15/2008 · 11:08 h by Núria

You are only 18? Aaaaaaahhhhhh so young and yet so experimented in the kitchen!!!! I didn’t know how to fry an egg at that age. Didn’t care for kitchen and cooking at all!
You deserve it more now that I know :D. But no alcohol for you…. I just learned that you have to be 21 in America to consume alcohol. In Spain, 18 is enough to drink a good wine, for example. Cheers to you amigo!

11/15/2008 · 17:49 h by giz

Your daughter is a heartbreaker in the making. Thank you for your very kind words.

11/16/2008 · 1:11 h by Jen of A2eatwrite

Nuria, you are such a sweetie! Thank you for the kind words!

Your “granddaughter” is absolutely adorable. So beautiful, just like her step-grandma!

I’m finally back from this trip and have so much to catch up on.

The salmon and the rosquillas both look spectacular!

11/16/2008 · 10:06 h by Núria

Thanks so much Johanna! You deserve it too :D

Hola Giz, they come out naturally ;D

Hola Jen! HOpe your trip/vacation/move went well and your mom is happy and nearer to you♥. Thanks and see you ;D

11/17/2008 · 8:50 h by History of Greek Food

Thank you Nuria.

12/01/2008 · 15:55 h by katiez

I’ve missed so much being internet deprived. I feel like I’ve been living in a mountain hut… close, maybe.
What a fun post!
I’ll continue with my catch-up…
