Pat came off her Back Porch to tag me with the Thinking Blogger Award. I am touched! This award is for a blogger who has inspired someone to think. I am not sure mine is truly a 'thinking' blog... but hopefully a blog that brings a chuckle, brings a warm memory, or inspires a dish.
Now my task is to tag 5 others who have inspired me to think.
My first inspiration had to have been Peabody Culinary Concoctions. Her blog is full of photos that have always made me pause and think...'how the heck can she get that close up?'
Another award winner is Josh Lane who is spending his time in the HOV Lane. His photos are not as much about food... more about life and noticing the most obscure things. Josh has even made me notice unique things in the backroads of Alabama~ and there is plenty to notice!
One of my favorite Thinking Bloggers would have to be Jerry, who spends his days with his Thoughts, Musings, & Rants! His blog is a way to get his thoughts out of that busy head and into our busy heads. I look forward to the day we can sit under a Tuscan sun and share our musings.
One of my favorite cooking blogs is Kristen who is serving up a Dine and Dish. She always has a dish that makes me stop and think... Wow~ I've got to try that. Isn't that the definition of a Thinking Blog?
Finally a thinker who Cooks by the Seat of His Pants. Jerry will post on everything from a most unusual ingredient to ramen noodles. He is not only good~ but real.
When I make a post on our blog these are the things I work hard to be: good~ but real, innovative with something people will want to try, thoughtful in my rantings, unique and southern, and a photographer that makes you say 'Yum'!
I am not there yet...although I appreciate Pat's faith in me. In the mean time I am tagging these 5 who have inspired me!
For those of you who had such wonderful comments about Fannie Flagg~ you will be glad to know that she won the Pop Idol award.
Two award winners in one WhistleStop Blog.
