My Family, 2006 To all those who started blogs: Mum, Beccy, Mollie and Dillon. To those without blogs, Dad and little Ben. To my dearest Fred, always by my side, I love you. And mostly to my beloved Granny who ended up in hospital two days ago with pneomonia and anemia for which she had to have a blood transfusion. Granny, I love you and I really miss you, I hope more than anything to be able to see you in 2007 and I hope you get out of hospital soon.

Happy New year, 2007, Everyone!

    I think your Artichoke Panzanella is one of my favorite tastes of 2006 as well. Took it to a party and those friends keep on asking me to make it again!

    A very happy 2007 to you, Sam, and I hope your grandmother is feeling better soon.
