Five Fun Things on Friday and Happy Holiday Weekend! (7/2/10)
Yesterday was Canada Day, and in two days it will be the Fourth of July, so it’s safe to say that lots of holiday celebrations and cook-outs are happening all over the Northern Hemisphere. The celebrating has started around here, and one thing that’s been on the menu is the Fattoush salad pictured above. Keep reading to hear about who else has been enjoying Fattoush, a whole lot of good news for Kalyn’s Kitchen, and some ideas for holiday weekend food. I’ll be back with a recipe on Monday, so Happy Weekend everyone, whether you’re celebrating a holiday or just enjoying your weekend!
Fun Thing #2: Two Lists I’m Happy to Be Included On
Fun Thing #3: My Secrets for Perfectly Grilled Chicken Breasts Featured at Saveur.com
I’ve talked about how I love the blogger-friendly way that Saveur.com features recipes from food blogs. My tips for Perfectly Grilled Chicken Breasts were featured at Saveur.com this week, and also were part of Saveur’s online newsletter. Thanks again Saveur! (If you want to see more of my grilled chicken recipes, check the Grilling part of the recipe archives.)
Fun Thing #4: Kalyn’s Kitchen was Food Blog of the Day at Foodista.com
Good things seemed to come in bunches this week, because Kalyn’s Kitchen was also featured as Food Blog of the Day at Foodista.com on July 1. This is another site that does a nice job of spotlighting food blogs, and I was honored to be spotlighted along with so many other great blogs.
Fun Thing #5: Fourth of July Food Ideas
Finally, if you haven’t nailed down your menu for the Fourth of July, you can count on food bloggers for menu suggestions. I shared lots of Grilling Ideas for the Fourth of July in 2007, and more Fourth of July Grilling Ideas in 2008, and those favorite recipes would still taste great this year! I also loved the Festive Ideas for Your Fourth of July Cook-Out or Cook-In from Susan at Food Blogga, and I spotted some tasty-looking Recipes for a Happy Fourth of July Weekend at Life’s Ambrosia. Finally, if you’re indulging a bit for the holiday, I shared lots of interesting ideas for Potato Salad for the Fourth of July at BlogHer.com.
Happy Holiday Weekend everyone. If you’re not too busy celebrating, let us know in the comments what’s going to be on the menu at your house this weekend. If you need just a little more Friday Fun, you can use the label for Five Fun Things on Friday to see fun things I’ve shared on other Fridays!
