Curry and Comfort's Weekly Sunday Summary 8/27/12 thru 9/02/12

  Hi Everyone,

 Whew, what a week!  I am so excited to be in September already.  I started out the week by guest posting for one of my favorite foodie friends, Nancy, at Spicie Foodie.   Then I was also excited to guest post for MJ, another favorite foodie friend, at MJ's Kitchen.  If that wasn't exciting enough Anna at  Crunchy Creamy Sweet had one of her Blue Ribbon Challenges this week for granita and I won with my Watermelon Lime Granita. :)   Yes, I certainly felt the food blog world love this week. What a wonderful feeling.

I also cooked two wonderful family meals (Pizza Sloppy Joes and Creamy Chicken Casserole) that will forever be part of my cooking repertoire... especially since they are so easy and delicious.   I call it a total victory for my cooking this week!

Summer is officially over for me now since the kids are back in school.  I will miss them, but I hope to devote some quality time to my cooking and more time to doing some blog housekeeping.  I have been certainly lax about making sure everything here runs smoothly since I have been running around the 2 kids all summer.  Cooking and posting has been my only priority, but I need to pass out some wonderful awards that my fellow bloggers have also bestowed on me.  I seem to hog onto these awards for far too long before I get a chance to reciprocate so I'm really sorry for the delay.  It does not take away from the lovely ladies that were kind enough to give these awards to me nor how excited I was when I received them. I thank them very much!  I put them lovingly in my Awards Page and promised to get to them quickly, then something comes up and it takes a bit longer than I planned.  Now it's taken me hours to get this post done... so I will have to promise to make the fun facts about myself up to you on another day or this post will be way too long.   So with no further adieu,  on to the awards!
