And the Award goes to....

Just back from a fabulos week viewing the ancient archeological sights around Izmir, Ephesus and Troia coming home I had a lovely surprise waiting for me:
Alida of the lovely and deliciously readable blog My Italian Kitchen had chosen to give me not only one, but two blog awards:

I feel enormously flattered Alida and cannot thank you enough!
Now part of accepting this honor is to forward these awards to five other blogs I admire, so


All of these are blogs I enjoy reading and I hope you will like them just as much as I do!

Just a little photo from last Sunday's market in Izmir - don't you just want to take a bite?
