Sherman's Food Adventures: The blog turns 3!

The blog turns 3!

Can you believe it? I certainly cannot... My little blog, which started out as a dare of sorts, has reached the ripe ol' age of 3! I never set out to take it this far, but my thirst for eating (and taking photos) has kept this up daily since November 2008. This has been and always will be my personal experience with food, hence, you have to put up with my rambling about unrelated matters. I'm not sure what the future holds since life is busy and well, food is expensive. I guess I'll have to take it day-by-day and enjoy life. For now at least, I'll keep doing what I love to do. As with years past, I will hold another draw for a $50.00 restaurant gift certificate. This, in no way, shape or form is sponsored by anyone other than myself. To enter the draw, just simply leave a comment on this post with your first name and last initial. I will randomly draw a winner on Nov 8th. For now, be happy, eat lots and try some offal! :)

Your blog helped me create a very special dinner last year. For my boyfriend's 30th birthday, I was torn between Tojo's and Octopus Garden for omakase. And lo and behold, as if by telepathy, you posted about Octopus Garden (and how awesome it was) as if to solve my specific dilemma. Made the reservation the next day and had a truly unforgettable evening. So thanks for being a part of my (and many other Vancouverites') dining adventures!

Happy 3rd birthday and may there be more to come!

Your personal slant is what makes your blog unique and interesting to read, besides all the great food journals of course. Hope for your passion for good (and reasonably priced) food fuels your desire to keep this blog going,

I was just wondering if you've packed on the pounds like Adam Richman of Man Vs. Food or have you managed to maintain your weight?

Thanks for all the kind comments everyone! Yes, I'm not sure how I keep it up but I'll sure try. I'm surprised it has lasted this long to tell you the truth. It's a lot of work and money!!! :) And no, I haven't gained any weight. I think I might lost some though... Strange... And again, thanks for putting your trust in me. It means a lot!
