Oh Tara I definitely think you are creative... making those delicious looking dishes is a talent. My dad was a chef so I know what I'm talking about :)

And, I want to live overseas too :)

Oh dear, I've been neglecting my blog reading and have only just seen this! Even worse, I have been neglecting my sketches for so long... will store this meme for another day, and try to do more cartoons!

And thanks so much, Tara!

Iliana, thank you! I had never really considered it a creative pursuit, but I suppose when I talk to people I realize not everyone does this - cook, that is!

Simon, you are welcome! I love your sketches; you are very deserving.
