Fat pig in the market is one year old!

Can I get an oink oink?

Last year I started this blog as a birthday present to myself because I wanted to do something that I’d always wanted to do…write on a regular basis, find a voice.

I bumbled about looking for a topic that would intrigue me. I admit that it took me a while to see the sign even though I was walking by this sign daily:

I made my first pizza.

I kept on making pizzas until I could boldly claim, “I make a mean pizza.” I do. I even make breakfast pizza.

I totally owe you a post about pizza.

Hi. I’m the voice of the fat pig. I got a little chill the first time I hit publish on this blog even though I knew I was the only person reading it. Now there are actually people who read this blog and I didn’t even pester them to. That totally amazes me. So here’s what I have to say on the fat pig in the market’s first birthday:

thank you from the fat pig

I still get a chill every time I hit publish. I’m so happy you’re here!

XO ~ fat pig

p.s. oink!

      The festival was fun. Very excellent goodie bag with coffees, chocolate (that won me over) DIY cocktail book and more. The Taste Pavillion rocked! Wine sodas, chocolate ice cream, a gorgeous honeysuckle gin called Bloom, etc…I’m happy to have met you too. Your blog is on my favorites bar. Hopefully we’ll meet up in person one day! Jorie

    Look at what has happened in a year. Eye candy & cooking digest dribbling delightfully down a page. Delicious.
