Hello faithful bloggers…
Just thought I’d take a quick second and update you on the status of the Tastebook cookbook.
First, I must say that I am thoroughly impressed with all the recipes and the participation of those who I don’t know personally. You should all pat yourself on your backs for being brave enough to reveal your stalker status. I’ve been slightly inundated with emails containing not only recipes but the most intriguing stories of how folks have found their way here. Both of which are equally entertaining, smile-provoking, and encouraging. And I’m fortunate to have made some new friends along the way!
Second, I want to whet your taste buds just a touch and let you know if it were feasible I’d invite you all over for a fabulous blogging dinner on the patio. Here’s what’s on the menu…
we’ll start by socializing with Pomegranate Margaritas, Spinach Balls & Stuffed Mushrooms
next we’ll enjoy a Bombay Salad
followed by Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin (which I made this weekend & it was a huge hit)
accompanied by Tomato Pie and Best Rice Casserole
and we’ll top it all off with Aunt Ora’s Fresh Apple Cake
& since we’ll be eating on the patio I can’t forget my most favorite submission so far Bird Muffins so that our feathered friends won’t be left out of the fun!
Third, if you have yet to submit a picture to accompany your recipe please do so. And while I have found the two pictures I received of the recipes themselves to be very mouthwatering, I find the pictures of the human beings to be more interesting. So, if you have yet to submit your pictures please do so… and spouses, kids, grand kids, dogs are all acceptable!
Fourth, I know for a fact that there are a lot of y’all who have yet to submit. Don’t worry time isn’t up yet (next Wednesday, April 16th), and I’d love to have more! Once they’re all in and in the book, I will sort through them and may have to omit some that are duplicates, etc.
Fifth, thanks for playing!
My mom and grandmother are still here and we’re enjoying the break from the rain! I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve for the next post so stay tuned! I’m off to get these 2 princesses off to bed! By the way, never say never when it comes to kids! I never thought I’d have two little “princesses”… and I never thought I’d buy a princess costume… look at me eating my words!
