Hello all. I thought that the best way to celebrate my birthday this year (October 4th) would be with the launch of my new site – Let Us Bear Fruit. I love to have a good time and I’m sure you do too. The best way I know to celebrate is by giving.
Rather than be constrained by one night at the Hilton I have opted to invite you into my home in order to keep the party going all week. As your hostess I will provide the appetizer soup/salad and main course. You are invited to bring the side dish, dessert or beverage of your choice. Stop by our comments section, sign in and tell us who you are and what you brought.
Please stop by daily for the opportunity to mingle with old friends and make new acquaintances.
I’d love for you to sign up for the blog so that you’ll always know what’s going on here. Don't forget to invite friends and have them tell me that YOU invited them. The person who brings the most guests will be awarded a very special reader’s basket. Winner will be announced on Sunday, October 11th.
Enough talk, let’s get this party started.
You can see that I have featured a Peach Cobbler rather than a cake for this celebration. There is a good reason for that – I don’t like cake. Well, there is one that I will eat.
For the opportunity to leave today's brunch with a lovely parting gift, be the first person to correctly identify the one cake you think I might eat.
Grilled shrimp marinated in tomato sauce, red wine vinegar, basil and cayenne pepper
Vegetable trays – and of course our fruit of the day,
Field Greens topped with sun dried cranberries, mandarin orange slices and slivered almonds served with a raspberry vinaigrette dressing
Grilled Salmon with caper tomato vinaigrette
Cranberry glazed Shitake mushrooms stuffed with seasoned ground turkey
Can't wait to sample what you brought. Thank you for coming.
Be Blessed -- Linda!
