Happy New Year, Friends!
Whoever declared January National Soup Month was a genius. Soup is the only way to begin a new year, the only way to begin anything, really.
So, did you have a good holiday? I’m still in a cookie coma, and Cornelius is way out of control.
Mr. Hatley, our resident erudite, is very good at reading recipes aloud. Like Cornelius, he’s definitely not lacking in the confidence department.
What are you most looking forward to in 2012?
This will be my “learn new technologies” year. Quite a challenge for someone who’s still chiseling letters on stone tablets. The other day, I bit the bullet (actually the Apple), and purchased my first — *wait for it* — MacBook.
Step into the light, she said.
I’m also determined to become a better photographer. Yes, a new camera, my fourth Canon. Don’t call me to take your wedding photos just yet, but if you have a freshly baked cupcake lying around, I’d be mighty tempted to snap it!
Come Spring, I will purchase my first smart phone. (Is that applause I hear?) This will actually be my first mobile phone ever.
*pause while you pick yourself up off the floor*
I need to make it easier for Paul, George, Bob and Colin to ring me up!
Speaking of Bob, saw him recently at Madame Tussaud’s, along with a bunch of other cool people.

I’m looking forward to cooking up
lots more mischief many socially redeeming blog posts during 2012, and hope you’ll drop by often, bibbed and ready, to slurp, taste, nibble, nosh, chew, and drool right along with me.
Stay tuned for our first Soup of the Day celebration for 2012 featuring Dumpling Days by Grace Lin. Yes, I know. It’s the PERFECT book to kick things off.
Till next time, Happy Reading, Writing, Eating, and Playing!!
Thank you for being you, and for being here.
