Reflecting back on 2006 as it is drawing to a close, I have to say that it’s been a great year!

In the food department, it has also been terrific.
We enjoyed fresh caught salmon from BC’s rivers, prepared in many ways, including homemade gravlax. We feasted in the Okanagan on local cheeses and cherries, plums and peaches picked right from the tree. Three weddings rounded out our fall and our quota for fine dining, and now we’re smack in the middle of holidays with tomorrow promising to be an afternoon of eating our way around downtown as we visit all our favorite spots.

Of course, one of the highlights of the year was jumping into the blogosphere with both feet and cooking up Under the High Chair. It’s been so much fun and I am just getting started. I have so many ideas for the future of this blog, it just a matter of finding the time and beefing up on my computer nerd skills.

Which reminds me….

I have to thank the very special someone in the photo above for all the love, encouragement, and the kick in the pants to start UtHC. Thanks, Danny, for your highly skilled technical support; for your gift of more camera equipment; for encouraging shopping sprees at Ares Cuisine; and for being such a loyal fan of my cooking! I love you.

Also, to all of YOU, my friends from Hungary to Hawaii, Guatemala to Georgia; thanks for reading!! If I have inspired, entertained, or uplifted one person, I have succeeded with UtHC. Stay tuned and keep reading!

Here’s to many more adventures in the culinary world in 2007!!
