Happy Wednesday my loves!

I’m back from England now. It was wonderful to visit John’s parents and to see the town where he grew up. Can you believe we’ve been together over 5 years and I’d never been there?? We ended up spending most of our time in pubs because it was raining the entire time… But I guess that’s what they do there. When in Rome! Err… England!I’ve made a slight change to the link up. I’ve decided to change it from allowing only 3 links to as many as you like as long as:A. You haven’t shared them here before.
B. They fit with the link ups mission.

Fun! So share your posts with us, be sure to visit some of the other linkers and let’s support each other! It’s always nice to know someone thinks we’re doing a good job!

If you’re into really good food cooked from scratch with fresh ingredients, drinks with a little somethin’ somethin’ and enjoying what you put in your mouth, this book is for you.


Julia Child famously commented, "I enjoy cooking with wine, sometimes I even put it in the food . . . ” Kristy Gardner has taken this idea to the next level in Cooking with Cocktails. Every recipe is touched with alcohol; the result is a punchy visual adventure with roots in Italian and French cuisine that demands enjoying meals with passion, with friends, and with alcohol.


Join the celebration of the very best that life has to offer—good friends, good food, good drink and great stories —with humor, delicious and inventive recipes, and mouth-watering photographs for each and every dish!


Cook. Eat. Imbibe. Live. And repeat.

    Welcome back. I linked up 2 this week. One is part of my real food abc series. I am on F and talk about using the freezer to help eat more real food. The second post kind of goes along with E for eatwild. I talk about cows living in CAFOs.

    Lots of rain and pub time… sounds like a classic English experience. Did you improve your game of darts?

    I’m glad you had fun in Merrye Olde etc. I really liked touring the Upper Peninsula (of Michigan) where my spouse grew up/went to school. I am sure part of it was a vacation away from the kids, but it was also very neat to see his old haunts and meet some old friends. (And eat pasties in their natural habitat!)

    Today I’m linking up a tasty mac and cheese baked in a pie pumpkin from my CSA farm share. I got the recipe from the soon-to-be-released book, MELT The Art of Macaroni and Cheese by Stephanie Stiavetti and Garrett McCord. As part of the hoopla surrounding the release of this lovely book, there’s a $500 Le Creuset cookware giveaway going on. Link is in my post (I’m not involved, just passing it along). I’m hoping to get more pie pumpkins in the farm share so that I can make this again when the spouse returns.
    I’m also sharing a Kalua Pig and Chinese Cabbage pizza, in my mind a ‘real’ Hawaiian style pizza, since I’ve been seeing Kalua Pork in Slow Cooker recipes on several food blogs lately.
    Finally, a new series, Fast From the Farm Share, where I share how I can pick up the farm share in the afternoon and get dinner on the table quickly. First recipe–a curry with mustard greens, chick peas, and squash.
    Thanks for hosting and I’m glad you’re back!
