I live in a great Salt Lake City neighborhood where we close off the street once in a while for a block party. For some reason, I’ve been away the last couple of years, but last Saturday I was there with my new camera, snapping some food porn. I took the camera home when it got dark, so I missed some tasty offerings that arrived late, but here’s some of the food we shared.

Great pork tamales, with very tasty Pico de Gallo on the side.

I took hummus, Sun-dried Tomato Pesto, and whole wheat pita bread. I also took made Black Bean and Pepper Salad with Cilantro and Lime, but apparently didn’t take a picture of it.
Layered Mexican dip which was very good.

Homemade guacamole, with chips on the side for dipping.

A neighbor who lives at the end of the block wins the food-styling award for this layered Mexican dip.
Spicy deviled eggs were tasty and quite a hit.

My neighbor across the street had quite an assortment
of interesting things cooking on his grill.

More grilled goodies, including some sausage for me.

Of course this great party was happening on the weekend. Now it’s time to get busy if you’re going to be doing some Weekend Herb Blogging (which doesn’t even have be done on the weekend, according to the official rules.) WHB is off traveling this week, visiting Milan, Italy, where Piperita of The Kitchen Pantry is the host. Send your links to peppermintpatt AT gmail DOT com by 3:00 on Sunday, Utah time, if you want her to include you in the recap which will be posted sometime Monday. Be sure to link to The Kitchen Pantry and include the words Weekend Herb Blogging somewhere in your post.

In two more weeks it will be the one year anniversary of Weekend Herb Blogging. If you’re a food blogger who’d like to participate, be thinking about what you’d choose for your very favorite herb. That’s what we’ll be asking bloggers to post about during the week of September 25 – October 1. Then we’ll tabulate the results to see what the very favorite herb will be. (Readers who aren’t bloggers will be able to participate by leaving their vote in a comment.) What do you think will end up being the very favorite herb?
