It's great to have guests, cousins, farm help come and stay because I get to cook. Okay, I cook all the time, but when guests come, I get to cook for more than two people. It's not easy cooking for two people because I'm used to cooking for harvest crews - you guessed it - we eat a lot of leftovers. It's so awesome when I can cook for guests because number one - they tell you they appreciate it (not that my dear hubby doesn't - it's just...yeah) and not that I need the appreciation, but darn it feels good! Number two - more than two people, no leftovers.
Stepping out of my comfort food zone, I'm out to try new recipes. This one is absolutely fabulous and I had to share. It is not my creation, but that of quilting/stitchery friend, Karen Perry. Guest/cousin/farm help Dave even wanted the recipe. Whoa - that's way cool, so he's guest/cousin/ farm help/chef!
I'm sending you to Karen's blog post for the recipe and her great decorating style. I believe she's my new idol!
My Yellow Farmhouse - stroll through her home to the end of the page and that's where you'll find the recipe for Savory Italian Rounds
