I came to realize that my blog changed quite a lot. I the beginning years of my blog I used to post some jokes and other funnies. I also posted pics of my table settings quite often – can anyone still remembers that?

On 19 June 2011 I posted this recipe for Canneloni with a meatloaf filling

On 19 June 2009 I posted this funny about a dog!

So what did you post on this day in previous years?
