Food on Fridays: Show-and-Tell


(smaller button below)

Here at the Food on Fridays carnival, any post remotely related to food is welcome—though we love to try new dishes, your post doesn’t have to be a recipe. If you want to talk about the blueberry seed that lodged between your teeth, that’s great. Posts like that are as welcome as menus and recipes.When your Food on Fridays contribution is ready, just grab the broccoli button (the big one above or smaller option at the bottom) to paste at the top of your post. It ties us together visually.Here’s a Mr. Linky tutorial:

Write up a post, publish, then return here and click on Mr. Linky below. A screen will pop up where you can type in your blog name and paste in the url to your own Food on Fridays post (give us the exact link to your Food on Fridays page, not just the link to your blog).You can also visit other people’s posts by clicking on Mr. Linky and then clicking participants’ names–you should be taken straight to their posts.Please note: I’ll do my best to update this post by hand. In the meantime, please click on the Mister Linky logo to view the complete list.

Food on Fridays with AnnToday is kind of a Food on Fridays “Show-and-Tell.”First, I made Charity’s Zucchini Bread in the form of muffins. The final product tasted something like pumpkin bread, and we love pumpkin bread. I barely had time to snap the picture before these muffins were gone.I slipped chocolate chips into some of the batter at the end. I know it’s not part of Charity’s directions, but I couldn’t resist.Also, I don’t think I showed you my first ripe tomatoes of the season. I was late getting the garden in, so everything seemed to be ripening kind of slow. But once those first small tomatoes presented themselves, it seemed like the entire garden turned bright red with full-sized cousins to these guys. And I have to say…there’s nothing quite like a homegrown Indiana tomato.

    1. Without a doubt, there is nothing like a fresh from the garden tomato (though I don’t know if it has to come from Indiana :-)

    2. I did a kind of show and tell by presenting a photo of my mom’s tarts from this week as well as mine.

      • I’m going to try to visit everyone tonight after dinner, but tonight we’re going to bed early. Might not see it till the weekend. Thanks for joining up!

    3. I always think the first ripe tomato from the garden is the best – I always look forward to it! Thanks for hosting Food on Fridays, Ann – Have a great weekend!

    4. I shared a recipe for outstanding Tomatillo Salsa Verde. It’s incredible!!

    5. I like the muffins and the tomatoes! I linked up a pictorial post of us (I’m behind the camera) harvesting honey from our bees. We got 4 gallons from our one beehive–woohoo!


    6. Love fresh produce from the garden. However, here in Arizona it’s not fertile enough (on our side of town, anyway) to grow produce unless done in pots. I remember, though, our green peppers, tomatoes, strawberries, and green peas that we grew in California. Such pleasure and great taste when that first one appeared.

      Here in Arizona, though, we do have an orange and a lemon tree. First sign of those ripening and the whole family gets excited for fresh sweet orange juice and lemonade. Still drinking this year’s lemon crop!

      Congrats on your tomatoes, Ann.



    7. Those muffins look delicious, and your tomatoes gorgeous, your right nothing like homegrown!

    8. I had tomatoes for lunch with mozzarella cheese…oh, they were good!

    9. HI Annie Fo Fannie! Happy friday! I love moist and delicious zuccini anything baked! I also slip chocolate chips in whenever possible! lol–My recipe is for mark bittman’s long simmered meat sauce bolognese and it came out great! Alex

      • You are so fun, Alex! I’m checking out the Bittman Bolognese! We had a French girl stay with us one summer, and she made us the most amazing bolognese sauce. I’d love to have a good recipe for it…having lost hers.

    10. I was wondering if you’d like to exchange posts on my website? Im usually looking for talented people like you to exchange website reviews and so on.

    11. Hey there, just came to stop by and see what you ladies were writing about. I’m brain storming some ideas for tomorrow.

      I’m about to make a peach cobbler, but am not sure if I will take pictures and write about that. At any rate, I’ll have something for tomorrow. I loved reading the other ladies beautiful post, Ann, so glad you’re doing this.

      What wonderful food blogs these ladies have. Can’t wait to read more tomorrow.

      Thanks again!
