This Week in Review and a Request...

I bet you've been thinking that I've been off somewhere eating BonBons and getting my toenails painted, haven't you? Pffftttt, you're wrong! Well, not totally wrong. I did get a pedicure last week, but I was long overdue for some prettifying. I deserved a pedicure. I promise, though, that I have not eaten any Bon Bons. I'm not really sure what a Bon Bon even is. Is it like a truffle? I do adore truffles, especially Belgian truffles. Sorry...I'm digressing.

If you suscribe to Ebb and Flow and haven't received email notification of new postings I can explain. While I haven't written any of these newsy little blatherings to you, I have been busy behind the scenes here in my little cyberspace editing room. I have now transferred ALLof my recipes here from their former home on my one time web page. They can be found by using the links above that are accessed by clicking the Recipe Collection tab.

I have also transferred all of my travel journal entries for our home exchange to LeTignet, France in November of 2008 as well as journal entries for our visit to England in UK in October 2007. These entries can all be accessed by clicking on the UK/France 2007 tab above.

I have begun transferring files that contain journal entries from our westward RV trip last year on which we were joined by brother-in-law, David and sister-in-law Janet from England. These photo-journalistic entries chronicle a nine and a half week odyssey from Florida to Arizona. There are many files to transfer. You can access these entries by clicking on the Westward Ho! tab.

Finally, here's my latest idea. I'd like to add reader submitted recipes. I will be sending emails to everyone I know and also soliciting recipes here. If you have a favorite recipe you'd like to share with the world, I'd like to offer it up here with you as a guest blog author. It isn't necessary to have photos of the food. Just send me the recipe via email with a brief description of why it's a favorite of yours ie. "a dish my grandmother made when I was a child" or "my children's favorite" or creative. Please add a short bio of or two lines and tell me how you would like your name ...such as "Janet from the UK" or "Alisa from Texas" or whatever you choose. I am thinking to create a separate tab for guest recipes.

Please say you'll help. It gets lonely here behind the monitor screen banging away at this clunky old typewriter. Please email recipes to dana77kc-at-comcast-dot-net. I will offer up one guest recipe per week. What do you think? A cool idea? Good! I thought you'd agree.

That's it for today. I must get back to transferring files. Plus, I'm getting hot in the fur coat and hat get-up...must go change into shorts and a t-shirt.  Thanks for reading...

I'd add a recipe if I actually used recipes. Even though the food tastes better if I follow a recipe, I seem to insist on substitutions for some reason. In any case, I'll love having yours!
