This Week...All Thoughts On Food

What a fun month this has been with Rocky Dickerson’s July ActiveRain Challenge-Savory Stories! You still have today if you have a recipe or savory food story to share with ActiveRain. 



You don't need a silver fork to eat good food. Paul Prudhomme

If you haven’t read any of the posts, you can head to the Challenge post to see the links in the comment section. 


Instead of going out to dinner, buy good food. Cooking at home shows such affection. In a bad economy, it's more important to make yourself feel good. Ina Garten

For example, if you’re a grazer like I am you’ll love Susan Emo's Charcuterie Board



Food is our common ground, a universal experience. James Beard

And since I love game hens I’m going to be trying Raymond Henson, eXp Realty  Stuffed Cornish Game Hens. 


Cooking is all about people. Food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together. No matter what culture, everywhere around the world, people get together to eat. Guy Fieri


And finally, I couldn’t pass up this one shared by Jeff Masich-Scottsdale AZ Associate Broker,MBA,GRI -Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares.


Have fun and Bon Appetit!

HI Nina Hollander, Broker that's what I love about having the family around. I can make things like the peanut butter bars and spread the calories around to the family. 

Brian England Raymond Henson, eXp Realty sounds like a much more sophisticated cook than I am.

Kathy Streib at my end it's just my husband and me and he doesn't eat desserts... so it would all end up on my hips.

faye schubert we've found a few times that our service took longer because of the shortage of workers. I like eating at home and don't like to go out all of the time. 

Carol Williams I will check it out!

Raymond Henson, eXp Realty I had bbq'd shrimp in New Orleans but it was at Pascal Manale's. It was amazing!!! I'm going to try the game hens soon and will let you know. I sent Susan Emo's charcuterie board post to my niece and she wants to try to make it.

Joan Cox my cooking is relatively simple for our everyday meals. But when the whole family is coming over, then the kitchen is wild. 

Will Hamm we are hot and no rain...yet!!!

I tell you what, Kathy Streib, I am sure glad that I was clueless when I volunteered for thsi mobth's challenge. Stumbling across this food theme has really brought out some amazing  posts! I have been loving how everyone has become so creative.

It's been fun reading so many of the 'recipes' Rocky Dickerson . Sometimes stumbling on something is more fun than planning!  Creative Route taken!

It's been fun to read the recipes. I've tried to get our Chef (Bernie) to enter, but in all fairness we have had a very busy and productive week. I just finished reading Carol Williams entry today and it cracked me up. ( Faces in food.)

Charcuterie Boards are popping up everywhere lately.  I must say however, Susan Emo's wins the prize.  Absolutely amazing!

Hello Kathy,  I love to cook but my wife always is worry about the house or the deck and because of that we do not have people over often enough for me.
