Foodie Friday and Everything Else


Welcome to Foodie Friday and Everything Else. Can you believe it's mid-August? I am missing Summer already, and it hasn't ended. 



I'm looking forward to the Perseid meteor shower that begins tonight and continues until the 12th. Experts are saying that 200 meteors per hour will spark across the night sky. To find out "when, where, and how to see it," get the details HERE. Earth Sky has more information HERE.
Last week's party was one of my all-time favorites. I saw so many recipes that I wanted to try, along with gorgeous ways to deal with the Dog Days of August. If you missed the party, hop over HERE. Highlights include:
Two Coral Alfresco Tables with A Toile Tale.


Provence Garden Alfresco Dining by Panoply.


An Alfresco Tablescape by Everyday Living.

Alfresco Dining in the Cabana by Dining Delight.


A Polka Dot Alfresco Party by More Fun Less Laundry.


A Time of Bounty by Just Jan Blog.

  4. Your alfresco setting is so inviting. Just too, too hot to dine outside here. Even in the shade it's just too warm. I'm ready for cooler temps of fall.

  5. They are saying the best time to view it around here is 1 am, so I don't know if I'll see it or not!

  18. I know what you mean about summer over. My daughter and daughter in law are teachers and go back to school next week. Since I am the gramma daycare; that means my summer is over on Monday! Where did it go!!!!!

  20. Oh yes Michael Lee. I can believe we're half way through August. It's not like I'm counting down the days until Spring or anything! lol I don't like winter at all here in Australia even though it's nothing like you guys have it there. I just dislike the cold full stop. Looking so forward to Spring in a couple weeks and then a long hot summer. Thanks so much for the party!

  21. Hi Michael Lee, I love watching the meteor showers in August. They always bring back such happy memories of lazy summer nights during my own childhood and then with my own children. We are having a horrible (for the northeast) heat and humidity wave and I hope it abates soon. Thank you for mentioning my polka dot table from last week. I can see that there are many interesting links to explore this week too! Linda
