Foodie Friday and Everything Else

A sudden thunderstorm is moving in, and that almost always means that our Internet will be knocked out. I want to make sure Foodie Friday and Everything Else is available to you right now, just in case our cable is hit. If we escape, I'll come back later and add the features--which were spectacular, I might add.
(Update: The storm passed, and we still have Internet service. With pleasure, I'm adding features from last week's party.)

Blueberry Bread

Here lately, I've been baking like crazy. Some recipes aren't successful, like my tomato cake, which went off-script in a wild sort of way, and I'm still working on on a solution; other recipes involve a store-bought mix, which is pretty hard to mess up. One successful baking project involved fat, plump blueberries and the aforementioned mix.

The night I lit the Emerson Club on fire had been perfect for making meringue.

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.

Alfresco Tablescape Bloghop

On this sweet, summer afternoon, I decided to serve an early supper on the porch. I was inspired by a lively blue and green tablecloth, just the antidote for a hot August day.
