April Fool's Day
Carol at There's Always Thyme To Cook is hosting an April Fool's Party to showcase our faux food!
I was all set to make the Spaghetti and Meatballs, but my dear co-hort Suzy from Kitchen Bouquet beat me to the punch! So, since I didn't want a double up I went back and did more research to come up with another dish. I was really proud of myself..came up with something great and promised myself I would NOT change my mind even if someone else picked my dish.
After I finished my class this morning in Digital Imaging I went to the grocery to get all my ingredients..back home slaving away baking, mixing up concoctions, taking pictures getting everything just perfect!
Finally ready to do my post, everything is in order until I linked on to Dashboard and saw KATHLEEN'S post!!! Sometimes I swear we share one mind...Irish folk are like that at times. Needless to say my contribution is a grilled cheese sandwich and french fries, which is one of my favs also! Kathleen is a genius in presentation so I'm glad I didn't even attempt that ;)
I really loved doing this..my DIL stopped by as I was getting everything ready and was impressed. So, without any further comments..since I know the suspense is just killing you all....
My GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH:
and my FAUX FRENCH FRIES:
My Fries were made with premade breadstick dough, and catsup was seedless strawberry jelly! To get both of the recipes just click on the names for the link.
Thanks Carol for hosting this fun event.. go to Carol's blog and you can link to all the others who have joined in for the April Fool's Party!
Just to give you all a HEAD'S UP.... I will be hosting a Mothers Day Event the weekend of May 9th. I would love for all to join in and show us any photos of your mother and grandmothers with some of their favorite recipes you always remember when you think of them! I'll have Mr. Linky posted on the Friday before...maybe, if I can get it figured out!
