Guess what I saw when I opened my mail a few days ago? A very welcome email from the Fairy Hobmother! I had been hoping he'd drop by and lo and behold, my dream was answered. The Hobmother is busy, running a very cool appliance site which sells many nice items such as dishwashers, cookers, hobs among other nice kitchen items.
I was awarded a $20 Amazon gift certificate which I shall be putting toward my much longed after bread machine. Would you like a visit from the Fairy Hobmother? Simply leave me a comment and tell me what you would purchase if FH visits you. Evidently he will select someone from a comment....I do not have any weight in the decision so...be honest and tell us what you'd like. Perhaps he'll visit you too.
By the way, I was chosen because of a comment I made st Kim's site, Stirring the Pot - see it HERE
IHCC: Well, the female chef for the next six months over at I Heart Cooking Club is Tessa Kiros. I am excited about that as she has a few cookbooks that appeal to me......I am hoping to make a few of her recipes over the next six months she is featured.
The theme for week one is quite appropriate - it is Welcome.
For starters at a party I would have a salad........so, here is a salad for Tessa.
ripe tomatoes, quartered
1 cucumber, sliced thickly on the diagonal
1 small red onion
a few kalamata olives
1 heaped tablespoon of capers
crumbled feta cheese
1 teaspoon of dried oregano
4 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar, optional
Put the tomatoes, cucumber, onion, olives and capers into a serving bowl. Put the feta on top and crumble the oregano over with your fingers. Drizzle the olive oil over, and vinegar if using. Serve with bread.
I had made this site a comment free zone so, (as I stated on my sidebar) I will open this post to comments for the sake of the Hobmother. Please feel free to pass this particular post on in the event a winner is selwcted from my site.
And check out Tessa Kiros at I Heart Cooking Club!!
