5 Year Bloggy Birthday

Everyday Foodie has reached a milestone - 5 years on the scene!!  It's hard for me to believe it's been five years since I started this blog, and yet it's so fun to reflect back on.  Even in the past year, I've had a lot of new and exciting blogging experiences.

Christopher and I were invited to a pre-opening tasting at Wild Sage Kitchen and Bar, which was ridiculously fun, and absolutely scrumptious.

I got my first paid writing gig, and then partnered with Canadian Living Magazine, and continued to be paid to write.  I still can't believe this.  This was never something I expected or was even aiming for; but I feel honoured and appreciative that I can earn a little money doing something I am passionate about.

I had so much fun being a judge on Best in Chow: Pizza Wars, and they made me their Super Streeter (local expert).  This show will air in September.

To celebrate 5 years of blogging, Christopher took me out to try Siam's lunch buffet, which I've been wanting to try for a while.

I will go on record and tell you all that ...

 Siam has the best buffet I've ever eatenAnywhereEver.

I was blown away, and also shocked that a buffet could be so good (better than ordering off menus in expensive restaurants).  The bill for two came to $20.  Nice! 

Thanks to those readers who have been around since the beginning, and those who have joined my journey along the way.  I appreciate every, single one of you, and look forward to sharing more foodie adventures with you in the years to come. 

Thank you to my lovely readers.  Please leave a comment and tell me your name, and/or something about you!  (You don't need an account or anything to comment, just click anonymous).  Cheers!

Happy Blogoversary! That's awesome that you've been at it for 5 years! I always love coming over here and seeing the good eats you guys are cooking or enjoying out on the town. That is awesome that the buffet was so good and so cheap!

You already know my name. Something (food-related) about me is that my favorite comfort foods are mashed potatoes and tuna casserole!
