Recipes, Tablesettings and a "Giveaway".....Sign up now!

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

Hi Friends, Hope you are all doing well.... & enjoying this month of September!....Yesterday morning, I was sitting at my kitchen table trying to plan what to prepare for dinner?....After looking through a few cookbooks, and still not being terribly inspired, ....I thought it might be time for another recipe exchange!...this time an "Autumn Recipe Exchange"! I had one at the beginning of Summer, & I was so pleased to receive so many incredible warm-weather recipes!...So now I need your help again!!! I am looking for delicious, Fall recipes of all kinds,....main dishes, side dishes, salads & desserts!....And along with wanting to cook a few new dishes...I am also interested in setting some lovely Autumn-inspired tables! You know what I mean....mixing in some darker-patterned plates that speak of the season,...maybe pulling out the "cloth napkins" that are again a bit more "fallish & textural".... & making a few arrangements from flowers, berries & fruits that are only around at this time of the year! That's right! I am asking you for your favorite Fall recipes, along "Autumnal Tablesettings"!

What I was thinking was this.....If you are interested in joining me,...leave me a comment (& your blog address),....anytime between now & Thursday, September 25th.....Then on Saturday, September 27th, ....I will post not only one of my favorite Fall recipes, but also a photo of my dining room table all dressed for Autumn!.....& you all are invited to do the same!...I will also list ( & link) all the participating blogs, so we can visit each other,... collecting "recipes & decorating ideas" for the most delicious food & most beautiful Fall tables ever!.....I so hope you will join me! What a Saturday it will be!
P.S. And as an special treat,... a small "giveaway".... I will be drawing one name to receive 4 of my "monogrammed-stenciled napkins",.... custom-made for the winner! Hope to see you all on September 27th! ......Heidi XO

OK Heidi... I'm going to motivate myself to do this! It's the kind of thing that every year I think I'll do, but then time flies by and I realized that I never decorated for fall until the day before Halloween! This year is going to be different! I pulled out some fall decorations yesterday and I actually bought a pumpkin!
Love, Missy
