ADoseOfMee’s 1 Year Blogging Annivesary

Monday, December 20, 2010

ADoseOfMee’s 1 Year Blogging Anniversary Contest is now closed. Thank you to all who participated.  I will announce the winner shortly.

Update:  Monday, December 20, 2010: Congrats to EmmerTT for winning the grand prize.  I told Chong that if I had less than 5 comments (Hello Lurkers!), I’d send out cookies to everyone!  I’m still baking cookies and hope to be done by tonight or tomorrow so please email me your addresses, everyone, and I will send out your packages by Wednesday afternoon.  Thanks for participating!

Update:  Thursday, December 23, 2010:  Congrats to Robin for winning the grand prize.  I will ship out your package tomorrow.

Wow…I can’t believe it’s been one year since I started blogging.  It feels like I just started blogging a few months ago.  It’s been a lot of fun making, baking, eating, drooling, and sharing with everyone.  To celebrate, I’m going to give a lucky reader a 1 year anniversary present.

What’s included in the present:

-1 bag of steamed rice roll flour

-1 bag of steamed bun flour + 1 package of Chinese sausage

-1 can of coconut milk

-1 can of curry paste

-1 package of square 3 Ladies brand rice wrapper

-1 bag of vermicelli noodle

-1 package of bbq powder

-1 package of laab seasoning

-A container full of cookies (chocolate chips, white macadamia nut, peanut butter, etc.)

-And a few more surprises that even I don’t know about….yet!  (This will probably include more cookies and/or goodies to munch on).

**I will take a picture of the final package on Sunday, December 19 so you’ll know what you’ll be receiving.  Who doesn’t love free groceries and goodies?**

How to enter (Be sure to leave a VALID email address or I won’t be able to contact you if you win ):

One entry per person only, please.  This will close on Sunday, December 19, at 11:59 PM CST.  Again, be sure you leave a valid email address so I can contact you if you win, or else no valid email address = no winner. If the winner does not contact me within 48 hours, a new winner will be chosen.

Good Luck and Good Eats!

I’m Still Alive!

I’m still alive–I’ve just been so busy this week baking for the in-laws, my cookie swap partner, and just because that I barely had time for anything else–much less, sleep!  I doubt my in-laws read my blog so I think it’s safe to post up pictures of what I’ve been baking…and if for some reason they do read my blog, oh well, I guess it won’t be a surprise anymore.





The gum drop tree was for a few of my co-workers (I made 3), the Raspberry Almond Thumbprints and package was for my cookie swap partner, the cinnamon applesauce Christmas ornaments are for me, the box of cookies was a treat I brought in to work, the bag and mint chocolate chip cookies was my treat from my cookie swap partner and most everything else is for the in-laws.  Some stuff not pictured are:  carrot cake, zucchini bread, Too Much Chocolate cake, and a Christmas ornament package.  I just mailed it today so now I can get some rest.

I have some exciting news that I’ll have to share later so stay tuned!

Sausages

I love Hmong/Lao sausages but it seems like the only times I really crave them is during the New Year or soccer tournament.  So because the Hmong New Year was held a couple weeks ago and because Chong and I didn’t go this year, we cooked our own Hmong/Lao sausages at home.  Of course,we I had to get papaya salad to go with it.  Lao sausage is similar to Hmong but the texture is different–it’s chunkier and has different seasonings.  I prefer the Lao sausage while Chong prefers the Hmong kind.  Here’s what we ate:
