They Say It’s Cin’s Birthday! January 7, 2011

Posted by nrhatch in Food & Drink, Humor, Poetry.

The Only Cin is quite a cook

Don’t believe me?
Go have a look!


Post after post she makes us drool

Pre-packaged food?
Don’t be a fool!

Cin’s house is THE place to dine

What should you bring?
A bottle of wine!

As she serves, she’ll slay with humor

Over the hill?
That’s just a rumor!

Thank you.

nrhatch - January 7, 2011

You’re welcome! Thanks for making the blogosphere such an appetizing place to be!

BTW: I was going to ask for permission to “borrow” your photos . . . but felt that might spoil the surprise. 🙂

Have a grand start to a wonder-filled year.

2. Michelle - January 7, 2011

Awww how lovely 🙂

nrhatch - January 7, 2011

Let’s head round and share some wine with the birthday girl! 🙂

Nice post, Nancy. I’ll stop by at theonlycin. I love cooking blogs! Happy birthday to you, Cin. Blessings to you, Nancy and Cin…

nrhatch - January 7, 2011

Cindy serves some enticing dishes, for sure!

With a side of quick wit! 😉

4. souldipper - January 7, 2011

Great tribute, Nancy. You even set up a vegetarian menu!

nrhatch - January 7, 2011

Great fun planning this meal . . . since Cin did all the prep work! 🙂

5. MissChris - January 7, 2011

What a lovely tribute to a special person!! Happy Birthday Cin – you are definately an original! x

nrhatch - January 7, 2011

She is that!

6. viewfromtheside - January 7, 2011

So true! I am one of the fortunate to have eaten there, spent time chatting over a bottle, and laughing over coffee. Always with the warmth of her friendship making it all even better.

Lucky duck! 🙂

7. Paula Tohline Calhoun - January 7, 2011

I caught in the air a delightful scent
I knew right away its source
This alluring aroma has always meant
A great chef has been cooking, of course!
There truly is only one person I know
Who could make me both salivate and grin:
Her recipes and wit – a stunning portfolio
Of talent – it must be The ONLY CIN!

Happy Birthday, Girlfriend!

Cindy - January 8, 2011

Thank you, Paula 🙂

nrhatch - January 8, 2011

Too bad the blogosphere doesn’t have scent-o-vision. 😉

Paula Tohline Calhoun - January 8, 2011

You mean yours doesn’t? You should probably get an AT&T hookup! You’ll be smelling things all the time!

8. jannatwrites - January 8, 2011

Wow, this was such a sweet post you did. I enjoyed the meal, and the table was set beautifully 🙂

nrhatch - January 8, 2011

Cindy knows the way to a reader’s heart is via the stomach. 😉

9. Kate Shrewsday - January 8, 2011

Now I have to go eat something again. Cindy’s photos always do that to me.
Lovely post, Nancy and happy birthday just once more, Cindy. Hope today has some really good moments 🙂

nrhatch - January 8, 2011

Loved your take on “47,” Kate. It IS a good number.

Delightful tribute to a delightful lady! Special day to you, Cindy 🙂

nrhatch - January 8, 2011

You, too, are one of the lucky ducks who has wined and dined in real time with the birthday GIRL.

For now, I have to satisfy myself with cyber-feasting. 🙂

11. Maggie - January 8, 2011

Aww, this post made me happy! 🙂

nrhatch - January 8, 2011

Yay! Happy = Good!

12. Tokeloshe - July 25, 2011

I love it!

nrhatch - July 25, 2011

And in a few months, Cin gets to celebrate all over again. 😉

Aren’t birthdays grand?

13. kateshrewsday - January 7, 2012

Lovely post, Nancy, for a truly wonderful person. I was lucky enough to meet Cindy early on in my blogging time. Her take on life is warm, rich, definite and individual. And her recent life choices have inspired me…happy birthday, Cindy Taylor 🙂

nrhatch - January 7, 2012

Same here, Kate. I think I found Cindy the first month or so of starting SLTW. Not sure exactly where or how our paths crossed for the first time . . . but I’m delighted they did.

Cheers, Cin!
