What more is there to say, but thankyou. Thankyou for your support, your encouragement, your beautiful comments, and your continuing inspiration. Without your visits, I would not bother blogging.
You, yes, you. You make what I do here at A Tray of Bliss, mean something.
I hope I've inspired you, lifted you when you were down, given you hope when you had none, and showed you how to have a bountiful life, whether you have a little, or a lot.
While I am away, can I encourage you to go through the many posts here, that will continue to show you how to live beautifully, abundantly, and peacefully, no matter your financial status.
I will return in 2017, with more projects, more recipes, more ways for you to embrace life and live it generously.
Green Bean, Grilled Nectarine, Maple Syrup Walnut and Pomegranate Salad
(pictured at top of post)
Steam one kilo (2 pounds) of topped and tailed green beans. Slice the cheeks from 8 nectarines, and grill in a dry pan. Stir two large handfuls of walnuts with a couple of generous glugs of Maple Syrup in a hot pan, until the walnuts are coated well, and the liquid is evaporated. Remove the seeds from one ripe pomegranate. Assemble the salad as pictured. Dress with a little Maple Syrup shaken with wholegrain mustard if you like.
