Foodie Friday and Everything Else

Welcome to Foodie Friday and Everything Else.
I want to thank everyone for your kind comments about my illness. I'm much better, but still homebound for now. Haven't made it over to the ranchburger, but my family took pictures of the big anniversary SURPRISE. I'm looking forward to getting well, so we can move!

Here are a few highlights from last week's party:

Chili Corn Chip Casserole by All She Cooks.

Blackberry Mojitos by Oregon Transplant.

X is For EXcited for Golden Days of fall by Hyacinth for the Soul.

The Foodie Friday and Everything Else Link Party Guidelines:

***Older posts are welcome.

***No limit on the number of posts.

***No "rules."

***Everyone is welcome.

***Post your recipes, DIY projects, gardening adventures, tablescaping, decorating ideas, home remodeling, nest fluffing, fashion, family life, pets, time management, photography, health tips, nutrition, nature, shopping, travel, and everything else.

***To add a link, find the blue Inlinkz icon in the lower, left-hand portion of this post. Click on the icon and follow the directions, which includes selecting a thumbnail image. After you complete the process, you may see a red "x" (or mark) beside your name. This allows you to delete your link if you've made an error; the red "x" is visible to you only.

***If you see a thumbnail you like, please visit the participating blog to "pin" photographs. If you need more assistance, an UPDATED guide to the linky party is available here.

**Share your food photos with a larger community at Top Food Bloggers on Pinterest. Send me a message @ Pinterest if you'd like to join (so I'll be sure to see your request--otherwise, it may get lost in the feed, and I don't want to miss your note).

**Thanks so much for sharing your creativity each week. You inspire me more than you can ever know.

  4. Glad to hear that you are feeling better. When is the move in date?
    I'm honored to have my Golden Days of Fall post featured. Thank you! Texas has been getting rain of late, which is a good thing, but I wish it were cooler. Only then do we get more color for autumn.
