Happy 101 - An Award!

I had a huge weekend this weekend and must admit that we didn't cook a great deal at all. Saturday night we went out for dinner as it was Noel's birthday, Sunday was a grab your own night and last night ended up eating marinated beef ribs very late!! So I do apologize for not blogging anything new that we have cooked up.

But I must say I was pleased to find that I had been awarded this Happy 101 Award by Catherine from Living the Gourmet. In fact I wasn't just pleased I felt very privileged as this is my very 1st award given to me since creating A Dash of Flavour.

The rules of accepting this award are as follows:
- Put the logo on your blog or within your post.
- Pass the award onto 10 bloggers.
- Link the nominees within your post.
- Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
- Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.
- Lists things that make you happy.

The Happy 101 Award needs to be passed on so I would love to award it to the following sites (in no particular order) all of which I read avidly:

~ Gina's Weight Watcher Recipes

~ For The Love of Cooking

~ Not Quite Nigella
~ A Blog About Food
~ Almost Bourdain
~ Saucy Onion
~ One Couple's Kitchen
~ Dazy Dee's Core Recipes
~ Cooking This and That
~ Good Things Catered

If you are not familiar with any of these sites - pay them a visit and I guarantee you will have your tastebuds tantalised and teased with some of the meals they are cooking!!

And these are a few of the things that make me happy:
1) Being a wife to my best friend Noel
2) Being a mother to Oliver and Alexandria
3) Helping others
4) Christmas Lillies
5) Entertaining (I am actually a better hostess than a guest!!)
6) "Love Actually" - my favourite movie
7) Listening to people laugh especially my family
8) Learning (as strange as it sounds I really enjoy learning!!)
9) Cooking
10) and of course, blogging!!

Happy Cooking,

Jo @ A Dash Of Flavour
