At this time of the year, it's so hard to put into words that feeling of connection among men that the holiday season represents. Whatever form your personal celebration takes, the season when one year ends and another begins has meaning beyond the simple passing of the year. The holidays represent the possibility of a better tomorrow, the hope for peace on earth, and the remembrance of those who have touched our lives in the year that is ending.
This year, starting Kalyn's Kitchen has changed my life in ways that I truly never imagined. I am honored that so many of you have chosen to make reading my thoughts about cooking and food a part of your daily life. It's been great making new friends, learning new things, and sharing my passions through writing the blog. I hope the year to come will be a wonderful one for all of you.
Now, I've been hinting for a few days about a Christmas surprise message. I took a class recently where I had the chance to make a podcast. How amazing our world is that we can record ourselves talking, and then others can hear it by clicking a link on their computer screen. I marvel at all the things that the mind of man can imagine. You'll need to have a media player installed on your computer and the sound turned on to hear Kalyn's Kitchen Christmas Podcast Message. I hope you enjoy it.
I'm going to take the next few days off from writing the blog, but I'll be back on Monday evening to let you know whether anyone was herb blogging over the weekend. Also, I will report about the flavor of the Ponderosa Lemon that I featured for my own herb blogging post this weekend. If anyone wakes up Monday with a great herb blogging idea, just send it to me by midafternoon on Monday (kalynskitchen *at* comcast *dot* net) and I will include you in the recap. Meanwhile, over at Eatstuff, Kiri has returned so Clare is having the best Christmas and Weekend Cat Blogging ever! Be sure to check it out.
