Blog of the Week September 17, 2006

It's been a slow week in the kitchen.. Hubbs' mother fell out of bed early last week and broke her hip, 3 ribs and her humorous bone. =( So we've been at the hospital every night checking in on her. By the time we get home, I really don't have time to make dinner - so it's just been steaks on the grill or past dinners I've made and frozen, heated up. Which does not make for good blogging.

I'm happy to be posting this morning though.. and bringing back the Blog of the Week! La Festa al Fresco has brought to my attention so many gorgeous and wonderfully written blogs to add to my blogroll! I've noticed in comments that most of you have discovered these great blogs as well, but just in case you haven't, I'm going to highlight some in the next few weeks.

Starting off this week is Peabody of Culinary Concoctions by Peabody. If you haven't added her to your blogroll yet, I seriously recommend it. Her creations are mouthwatering - her stories are hysterical. One of my favorites is a recent story about how she discovered the Monte Cristo sandwich.. how funny!! She shares wonderful recipes and tidbits about her life and her family, which I find so charming. And if you're in to the food porn scene - you won't be disppointed. Her photos will leave you with a sadness that only comes from not being able to taste what she's presenting right then and there.

Not only are you the best person to host a blog event with, you have excellent taste. Peabody has one of my favourite blogs!

Hope your mother-in-law is feeling better!
