Happy Birthday Food Blog S'cool

A year ago, on this date, I started Food Blog S'cool on a whim. I can't believe how much it has grown in the last year. I want to thank you all, pupils and teachers, for being a part of this community and for being generous with your time and knowledge.

We have another bunch of new pupils, today. Since my feelings were hurt last time by the potential pupil who didn't want to risk becoming a rutabaga, I couldn't help but have a silly joke with myself by making the next class be Swedes. Swedes, in case you don't know, is what the English call rutabaga.

Rutabaga, Swedes, whatever, please give a hearty welcome to all our new pupils...

Wow one year! Happy Anniversary!

Nice to see some more sites added too! Thanks for all the hard work you put into this site Sam!

Oh Sam! Surely my silliness didn't hurt your feelings? I, for one, couldn't stop giggling when I read your post! But I concede. Even if it means becoming a frumpy old Swede, I'll sign up now. This is what happens when you try to beat the system ... : )

Happy Birthday Food Blog S'Cool! I'm certainly glad this place is here.

Sam said...

Joe - thank you

plum - you know I was joking but I just couldn't help myself from trying to scupper your plans. I am glad you got a giggle out if it!

Shauna - and we are glad you are a part of it too!

Happy Birthday! And welcome to the Swedes.

Slightly funny as I'm trying to come up with inventive rutebaga recipes as we speak.

Happy Birthday! I love this site and am proud to be a "student" (and I'm still proud of my rutabaga status). Thanks for all the hard work!

That reminds me I have a great recipe for a creole rutabaga bacon soup. Thank you for the warm welcome and happy birthday to the wonderful Blog S'cool. I look forward to learning here.

Thanks so much -- it's been a week of in-laws visiting plus school vacation week AND Passover/Easter, so I wasn't able to get here as quickly as I'd wanted.

I'm thrilled to be here.

Food plays a major role in making an event successful. It is also necessary to select the best food option and catering service. It is better to hire finger food catering for parties and birthdays.
