My 100th Blog Post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by

Today is a special day. Not only is it the day after I ran my second 5K and the first day of May, but today I offer you my 100th blog post! Rather than rant about a dish gone wrong, or brag about a dish gone right, or ramble about some other food-related topic, I thought I’d leave you with my favorite food quote….

I also want to thank all of you for following Como Water and for making me smile and laugh over the past 8 months! I look forward to my next 100 posts and for sharing my foodie futures with all of you!

Khalil Gibran (The Prophet, ‘On Food’)

… and when you crush an apple with your
teeth, say to it in your heart,
“Your seeds shall live in my body,
And the buds of your tomorrow shall
blossom in my heart,
And your fragrance shall be my breath,
And together we shall rejoice through
all the seasons.”

And in the autumn, when you gather
the grapes of your vineyards for the wine-
press, say in your heart,
“I too am a vineyard, and my fruit shall be gathered for the winepress,
And like new wine I shall be kept in
eternal vessels.”


And just because I couldn’t resist, here’s a couple of pictures from our race!
