Hey, it’s Friday! Oh, yay! It’s time to partay, okay? What d’ya say?
Alright, enough with the rhyming! I really don’t talk like that in real life. I’m not that cray cray!
And I don’t say cray cray in real life, either. FYI, I’m older than twelve! 🙂
Anyway, I just get super excited, that’s all, when Fridays roll around. ‘Coz it means party time with my online besties!
And this week we have two brand spanking new co-hosts! Not one, but two! Which makes this party extra special, don’t you think? I think so!
Please extend a warm welcome to Dini @ Giramuk’s Kitchen and Mollie @ The Frugal Hausfrau as your co-hosts. Make sure you link your posts to their blogs as well as this post if you’d like to be considered for features.
By the way, if any of you would like to be a future Fiesta Friday co-host, just let me know. I’ll be happy to have you!
And don’t forget to join the Fiesta Friday Group Board on Pinterest, too. Just let me know and I’ll send you the invite.
In the meantime, to those of you already members of the board, don’t forget to keep pinning and re-pinning! Please re-pin other members’ pins to promote each other! Remember the golden rule – PLAY NICE WITH OTHERS!
Okay, that was just a friendly reminder. Everybody has been wonderful, honestly. Now let’s partay! (Just in case you’re wondering, I don’t say partay in real life, either.)
Features from last week’s party are:
“The picture on this alone has me drooling. I mean seriously, this should be in a magazine!! Souvik has really done a great job. The ingredients in this blue lemonade are interesting and sound like they make a super refreshing drink!” — Amanda
“This is too cool not to be in anybody’s short list to try. Cinnamon lemonade! And blue, too! And that photo! It’s like triple wows for me! It’s just so…cool! How in the world did you do that, Souvik? Please tell us your secrets! Photography lesson, please! ‘Coz this is just too…cool! Can’t you tell I’m at a loss for words?” — Angie
“Sridevi created a beautiful tart using fresh strawberries and edible flowers from her garden. Phyllo dough was the base for this simple tart which has a delicate texture that brought the whole tart together. We all cook for various reasons and Sridevi made this summery tart in honor of a dear aunt. I can’t wait until strawberry season where I live – just a couple weeks away!– Juju
“That is one gorgeous tart! I just love looking at it. That’s probably why I pinned it numerous times, until Pinterest reminded me I’ve already saved it. The post is also a beautiful tribute to a beloved aunt. We’re thinking of you and your family, Sridevi!” — Angie
“Diana brought a unique twist to her cornmeal-based hushpuppies, a traditional Southern recipe. She added fish to these fried balls, substituting beer for the buttermilk and then added some “heat” with a chile or how about a hot sauce such as Sriracha. Then she served them with a spicy dip – now that is some good party food!” — Juju
“I chose this for a purely selFISH reason (geddit?!). I’ve been trying to eat more FISH and I have a 5 lb bag of masa harina in my pantry I don’t know what to do with! I think I’ve just found the perfect solution in this recipe! Thanks, Diana!” — Angie
“Quinn made a really scrumptious salad perfect for a picnic, barbecue or any gathering of family and friends. Many have heard of a “layered salad” but Quinn’s “Green Chile Bacon Cornbread Salad” really took it over the top. I mean the salad itself is delicious enough but he added a layer of his cornbread with more bacon and chilies. I cannot wait to make this myself!” — Juju
“What’s that? Bacon, you say? I’m there! Cornbread? I’m there!! Together in a salad? Whoa…I’ve got to be there and try this! What’s your address, Quinn? 😀 This sounds like a crowd pleaser. I think next time I go to a potluck, I’ll bring this!” — Angie
