Thanks to Lenn at LennDevours I'm no longer the little innocent meme virgin. But it's a bit more complicated than that. I often join in the fun of Wine Blogging Wednesday and events at IMBB for the fun of it and to be in sync with other food bloggers around the country. But until today I'd never been tagged for a meme--you see, I've always volunteered. Not quite the same. So last night as I was reading Jen's post at Life Begins at Thirty where she asked for volunteers to be tagged for the "Line 5 of the 23rd Post" meme. So I emailed her and said, "tag me, tag me!" Then Lenn tags me. So thanks to both Lenn and Jen for giving me this opportunity to go back in to the archives to find this line:
The same was true for making scones and biscuits--I always cut the butter with a pastry cutter.
This was written on June 29th when I participated in my first meme--Utensibility! Sam wanted help spending money on cooking gadgets so I got a chance to wax on about my KitchenAid Food Processor. But this line was recalling a time back when I was 15 and a bit of a Luddite and preferred not to use any applicances like mixers, beaters, etc., when cooking. Now, I couldn't live with out my food processor to make scones and biscuits--it cuts dough in less than a minute. I probably had more time when I was 15...hmmm, miss those days.
That 23rd post was written only a month and four days after I began this blog. Not that long ago, really. I'm still a newbie at this blog thing. But in just over four months of food blogging I've been amazed at the connections, reconnections, and new ventures that have come about. I've not only gained new friends across the blogosphere but have the privilege to watch one of my dreams come true--people getting excited about great food in Central New York. So thank you, dear readers, for hanging in there with me.
So who's next? Half the joy of getting tagged is tagging others, so.....
Here's what you do:
1. Delve into your blog archive.
2. Find your 23rd post (or closest to).
3. Find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions. Ponder it for meaning, subtext or hidden agendas...
5. Tag five people to do the same.
