My friend Babara is running an event on her blog Winos and Foodies to celebrate LIVEstrong Day, October 2nd 2010. Read her amazing story on her blog.
It's Cancer Awareness Day. For the last 4 years that Barbara's event has been around. Food Bloggers from all over have been creating Blogs with "A Taste of Yellow". :People making food with a yellow theme and usually some wonderful photography. It has been a fun event for a serious Cause.
This year luckily we have been blessed. No new cases of cancer amongst our family or close friends. That's fantastic. It is so hard on everyone, when a loved one is diagnosed with this ghastly disease. Barbara's story is an inspiration to us all. Also my friend Ellen's daughter and fought and won her battle as well, have a look at her blog. BatMom
Its a fascinating account of her battle. I notice that she hasn't posted since June. She's well and now making the most of her life with her adored family and friends.
My contribution this year, is not food I have actually cooked. It is an account of our trip to the Game Fishing Club here in Rarotonga.
It was a windy day but we were sheltered
The waves were crashing up against the reef, it was noisy and wild.
Mia told Cleo, that her Beanie Babies
would be washed away in the waves.
Oh dear, no matter how many times you say sorry, it won't wash with a 3 year old.
You can just see her in the background, in the blue car.
Golden Crispy Fried Fish and Chips, Pineapple Fritter on the side
served with a straw coloured, crisp, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and some beautiful Frangipani with a "Touch of Yellow", to decorate our table.
