    Wow! I am so happy to be featured!! Thank you, Elaine and Angie! This means a lot to me. xx

    Angie, time flies so fast. It’s really crazy how this is happening. So glad you enjoyed the summer still. Happy FF and I am ready for the Effie and Steffi show. πŸ˜€

    I feel sleepy and tired during class cause entire summer I slept late and woke up late. I just can’t get up because of that..XD

  3. Sorry to hear you are back to work and feeling tired, but hey, at least it’s Friday! Hopefully it will get better as you get back in the swing of things and hey, in the meantime there are at least lots of tasty features to drool over and I am sure there will be some more good recipes added this week too πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      I’m so glad it’s Friday and it’s actually a 3-day weekend, yay! Maybe I can now cook properly, like maybe I can make your Assam laksa for instance. I really want to try it.

      • Let me know if you do, I’d love to hear what you think of it! Yes 3 day weekend is great, although less so for me as means more running around after a toddler which is a little tricky right now…hopefully I can pity my husband into helping lots πŸ™‚

        • Angie says:

          Oh I remember those days as SAHM when my kids were little. Believe it or not, work is easier. Much easier!! You have my sympathy, lol! Hopefully you’ll have the husband’s sympathy, too. πŸ˜€

  4. What a lovely surprise, thanks for featuring my Flower Bread Elaine & Angie, it’s really made my day x

  5. Loretta says:

    Aww, thanks to Elaine, Jhuls and Angie for the feature. It was really odd how both Jhuls and I decided to feature Elaine/Selma’s recipe on the Lebanese Inspired dish. It truly does show that Selma’s spirit lives on and is always present at these special FF occasions. Thank you ladies, I do appreciate the feature. Good luck in the new school year Angie, I hope you have the day off today for the long weekend. Happy Labor Day ya’ll. πŸ™‚

  6. So lovely to see Jhuls and Lorettas posts, thank you for featuring them πŸ™‚ and I feel your pain, Ben goes back to school on Monday and I’ll miss him like mad xx

    • Angie says:

      I hope to make at least the chickpeas and potatoes this weekend, maybe even the chicken too. I did make the chicken once but without harissa. Looking forward to trying it with all the recommended ingredients. And I know how you feel about missing Ben. It’s nice having someone around the house at all times even if you’re not exactly doing things together. Thats probably why I love road trips. Everybody is forced to be in one car together, lol!

      • I hope you enjoy the dish πŸ™‚
        I think Ben is at such a lovely age, he’s really good company, but then I think he’s been great at every age, so far! During holiday time he reverts to being ‘my Ben’, when school kicks in that usually changes a bit…we’ll see!
        Have a good weekend xx

      Thanks, Elaine!! xx

  7. Hi Angie – I just realized I called Steffi Ginger at the end of my post. I corrected it on my end – is there anyway to correct the pingback? Thanks if so… Looks like I need to make that chicken dish of Selma’s as everyone seems to love it πŸ™‚

  8. Great features! I need to try those chickpeas ASAP! I feel your pain! I need a nice long nap to recoup from summer! But, I am excited for the long weekend and fall food πŸ™‚ Have a wonderful weekend!

    • Angie says:

      Me, too! I’m excited about all things apples and pumpkins! I didn’t do enough of either last year. I’m not going to make the same mistake this year πŸ˜€

  9. Ginger says:

    Hi Angie, I’ve finally made it to the party (after a long day at Legoland – don’t ask!). Wonderful features, those chickpeas are smiling at me from a distance as my family, unlike yours, will not give up on the meat. Although my son had a Vegetarian phase following a school trip to the local Hindu temple. Alsa, it only lasted a few hours. Once he realised that sausages are not a vegetable he gave up again …
    I’ll better grab a drink and start partying!
    Happy FF!

    • Angie says:

      Why are you complaining? I’d rather be at Legoland than at work πŸ™‚ I wonder if it has a different theme over there.
      Only my daughter is open to veggie eating. Not my son or the hubster! They want meat, meat, meat, and then some more meat!! It’s like so gross, right? Except more than half of the time I’m with them, lol. I don’t know where my daughter gets it from; she really loves vegetables!

  10. Woohoo! I’m so happy to be back at FF – even if it’s somewhat intermittent still!
    Loving those chickpeas, gotta try that!

    • Angie says:

      YAY!!! You’re back!! So great to have you!! And before you know it, you’ll be hosting Fiesta Friday. At least that’s what I’m hoping. That you’ll be willing. Just let me know when you feel like it πŸ™‚

  11. milkandbun says:

    A friend of mine posted the same words- she’s back to school! πŸ™‚ of course she means her children, but often parents do homework too πŸ˜€
    What a lovely recipes, especially I love the bread! looks awesome!

  12. Phew! I made it to this week’s FF! (After telling Jhuls that I was motivated to linkup last week since she was co-hosting, and failing with my experiments…Lol) Have a great Labor Day weekend Angie!! πŸ™‚

  13. Thank you very much Angie, Elaine and Jhuls! I am extremely happy & honored to have been selected, especially by my favorite ladies πŸ˜€ Angie, I couldn’t agree more with you, summer has flown by way to quickly this year, but they say sleep is for the weak right? Especially with our weekly fiestas πŸ˜‰ Have a lovely weekend & good luck with the new school year πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      You’re right, sleep is for the weak. Who has time to sleep really? Besides, if you snooze, you lose πŸ˜€ We were all happy to feature your pretty Magdalenas. Something new I’d love to try! XOXO

  14. Hilda says:

    Thanks so much Angie and Elaine for featuring my ketchup. I was so surprised but pleased to see it this morning. As usual I am a little late coming to the party, but so happy I made it. Angie, I hope you recover from your summer fatigue soon and have a wonderful term back at school.

    • Angie says:

      I’m slowly adjusting to my fall schedule, Hilda, and actually starting to enjoy the more structured days. Your ketchup is not only unique but sounds really delicious! You should consider selling it πŸ™‚

  15. What a great recipe collection, Angie, you girls chose really well! And I can’t wait for the round-up for this week, it’s going to be awesome πŸ™‚

  16. I so know that tired feeling, I was wanting another nap after lunch, I had one yesterday and I said to myself “you are not two years old anymore, you DO NOT need to nap after lunch” lol….I think one starts to get used to it and I simply do NOT have time to nap, though I wish I did. We need a good dose of Vit D or something more exciting hey? grinz xxx

  17. I get it Angie, summer cooking doesn’t seem like much and it’s too hot to cook anything fancy. Plus I think we naturally want light and simple things in the summer months.

Talk to me, people!
