Hey, guys, whatup?
I have no recipe for you today. But let’s not allow that to keep us from each other.
Today it’s all about me thanking you.
Because I need to tell you that I’m feeling blessed (and just for the record, I’m totally uncomfortable saying it!) that you guys visit this place every day, every week, every month, every year.
I’m still amazed I can reach so many of you.
It’s not only my mom, my sis, aunt G, and cousin Dan anymore. There are hundreds, thousands, millions (OK, maybe not millions) of you.
I feel so very grateful for this, words cannot express.
I won’t deny it, I put a lot of work in this blog — though it never feels like work — and I’m always
hoping to affect you in some ways.
Maybe inspire you to cook something different, trying something new, making healthier choices.
When you (aka the readers) respond, it makes me ecstatic.
I appreciate you guys reading my silliness more than you’ll ever know.
And I really appreciate when you try one of my recipes, like it and tell me about it (in a comment or via email). Seriously, every time it happens I’m like jumping for joy — just like Tom Brady after Malcolm Butler’s interception in the Super Bowl.
Then you guys go one step further, take a snapshot with your camera phone of the dish and post it either on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook with the hashtag #TheIronYou (or tagging me in the picture) so that I can find it. And that’s so awesome, I don’t think there’s a proper word to describe it [I mean, look at all the goodness you have cooked over the past two years]
For real, I never expected so many of you would enjoy my recipes.
As I look at all the times one of you has said “This recipe is fantastic, thank you for sharing” or look at the pictures of the food you have cooked, all I can think to do at this moment is my happy dance (which is so grand I have a full on happy disco going on over here) and say
THANK YOU GUYS,
YOU ARE AWESOME!
