I hope everyone had a fulfilling and relaxing Christmas with plenty of food and drink, which is usually a mainstay during the holidays for most of my acquaintances anyway!
This year should see a bit more blogging from me, especially with some audience participation thrown in, I have two main ideas already that I have put feelers out for... so I am going to need guinea pigs at some point and a location to hold a little ElectroKemistry experimentation. I also have a delicious recipe for Brandy Cream Prawns that I have done as a starter for Christmas the last 2-3 years and not had a single complaint from and 100% record with almost-licked-clean plates (even from a family member who doesn't like 'crustaceans' and shellfish!). Once I get my photographs back from the lovely photographer, I'll have the blog up in a jiffy for everyone to have a try themselves if they can suffer a meal with a few extra calories to swerve the diet momentarily!
With regards other ideas for blogs, if anyone has come across anything particularly special lately then please don't hesitate to be in touch and I can look at putting an article together with your input. I currently have two guest writers who are going to supply something special for you guys to have a crack at this year. If anyone has any dietary advice to help those of us with burgeoning wastelines after an excessive festive period, that would be not only topical but also very useful!
As an aside, loosely related to food, a friend of mine who has been travelling around the world a bit the last few years with his remarkable eye for a photograph and trusty camera has also been blogging. He has been volunteering for a relatively young charitable organisation in India called 'Food for Life Vrindavan' which helps get children a decent diet, education and clothing, his own blog covers his actions and details for the charity (which can also be found on: http://fflvrindavan.org/en/). If you find yourself with a few minutes to spare, it might be worth having a browse and contacting Rebelsatellite if you have any thoughts.
Here's to a cracking start to 2012 guys! Onward and upward!
