I'm back, I think, I mean.

First off

 Happy New Year!

It's 2011 y'all. I'm excited for another year. I'm anxious to see all the new things, new people, new experiences, and every thing new 2011 will have. I celebrated NYE at a friend's house and I made a new friend! How very New Year's Evey is that?

She's a fabulous lady with a fabulous name- Majda! I love saying that name. Majda, Majda, Majda :) haha
I hope we get to hang out since she's really a kind and gracious lady.

New Years day was unfortunately a lowly day for me. Loneliness got the best of me and I cried from missing my family. I however prayed and got better. I said this prayer from The Book of Common Prayer. It's a prayer For Those Who Live Alone:

Almighty God, whose Son had nowhere to lay his head:
Grant that those who live alone may not be lonely in their solitude, but that, following in his steps, they may find fulfillment in loving you and their neighbors, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

After saying this prayer I was hugely comforted and I kid you not, I haven't felt lonely since that night :)
God is good to me!

So yesterday I was watching The Food Network. I watched an episode of Aarti Party. She is awesome and she lights up the screen. I like her chuckle, and her food looks amazing. I checked out her blog and it is amazing. She is so personal and her posts very uplifting. For being on TV, she's a very normal person.

Reading through her stuff got me in a cooking frenzy. Now I'm psyched to try out new recipes again. I was down and out for a minute, but now I think I'm getting better.
I'm looking through my recipe book and thinking about ways to make my recipes better.

Cooking has for a long time been a measure of my Mental State. When I'm in high spirits, baby I can cook up a whole world! That hasn't been the case for a while. But now Njeri's back! WooHoo! so watch out y'all.

I'm even tempted to start a food blog :)

Happy 2011!
