Seven Things Meme and Weekend Herb Blogging #17.

First, a friendly reminder about Weekend Herb Blogging, the blogging event that happens every weekend on Kalyn's Kitchen. WHB is about bloggers all over the world helping each other learn about new herbs, plants, veggies, or even flowers or trees. If you're a blogger who is interested in participating, please check out the Weekend Herb Blogging Archives for more details. If you're participating, please send the links to my e-mail (kalynskitchen AT comcast DOT net).

Now, time to meme. I'm not quite sure how I got to be so popular with the memes recently, but Stephanie at Mana Makan - The Feast Crusade, Anthony at Anthony's Bachelor Kitchen, and Kimbie at Chocolate Chip Kimbie have all tagged me for this meme. It seems like I've done a lot of memes lately, and I hope people are not too sick of hearing about me!

Seven People I Want To Join In Too:
I hope that Stephanie, Anthony, and Kimbie won't be offended if I don't tag people. I've taken so ridiculously long to do this, that I've completely lost track of who has already done it. How about if we say, anyone who wants to do it, consider yourself tagged. If anyone chooses to tag themself, leave me a comment and I'll add in a link for you so people can find it.

  1. Not offended at all! Hey, when you go to India and Thailand maybe I will go with you! I love Thailand and the food ... holy cow! As for India, well, I've been told I must have been Indian in a past life. LOL.

  2. Three of the books on your list are my favorites too! My all time favorite book (tied with Shipping News) is Weight of Water. I love your blog and it has helped me go low-carb. I sent your link to my mother (cook-book buying addict) and she loves this blog as well. I think your photos are great!!
    Keep on keepin on!

Thanks for joining the conversation! I love hearing from readers and even though I can't always reply to every comment, I will always answer specific questions on a recipe as soon as possible.
