I'm delighted to be hosting the Make It From Scratch carnival this week. I've participated before, but I have never had the honor of hosting. Hopefully, I'll be able to do it on a semi-regular basis.
Did you know about the MIFS carnival? Every week, people from all over the blogosphere post recipes, crafts, household projects and more on their blogs, and they submit the links to MIFS to be included in the weekly summary. Ã‚ Anyone can participate, and you can find more information here. Check it out!
This week's entries for the carnival just happen to coordinate to make a beautiful meal. What's better on a summer evening than a nice appetizer, a couple of fresh salads, a soup, bread, and some dessert? We even have paper to write the menu on and laundry soap to wash the tablecloth. All you need are a couple friends to share the bounty with. Enjoy!
Food from scratch
One of my favorite appetizers to order at a restaurant is stuffed mushrooms. We love mushrooms, and stuffed ones are always delicious. DoraÃ‚ atÃ‚ Y-2K Hippie
Ã‚ shared her recipe forÃ‚ bacon and cheese stuffed mushroomsÃ‚ with us this week.
I've been thinking about making homemade bread for a while. MomAdvice says that a bread machine is best, but a friend told me that she prefers the old fashioned way. I haven't decided. Erica fromÃ‚ The SojournerÃ‚ has; she sharedÃ‚ an awesomely simple bread recipeÃ‚ this week. I can't wait to try it.
Homemade bread would go superbly with a nice salad,Ã‚ wouldn't it?Ã‚ Stephanie presentedÃ‚ A Quick Easy Tomato DishÃ‚ atÃ‚ Stop the Ride!, andÃ‚ MamaBear posted Taco Salad
atÃ‚ I've Got A Little Space To Fill
. What a great way to use up those summer veggies! If I was making taco salad for my family, we'd add some beans to the ground meat. They're really easy and inexpensive to make at home.
Instead of salad, maybe you'd like to make some soup with your beans.Ã‚ The Thinking Mother
Ã‚ shared herÃ‚ Homemade Stock Tips for Busy People, full of hints for making your own vegetable and meat stocks. Wouldn't they be great to make and freeze?
Don't eat too much of the savory foods, because we have a plethora of delicious desserts to make this week, too! Ã‚ Silvia shared a recipe forÃ‚ Homemade Apple Pie
posted at Po Moyemu–In My Opinion
. That'll be my husband's favorite, for sure.
Kate fromÃ‚ Our Red HouseÃ‚
presentedÃ‚ (Frozen) Butter Pecan Mousse. I wonder how it would be with a pecan pie? I loooove pecan pie.
I think Bananas Foster is one of the finest desserts ever created. Well, bananas foster, flan, pecan pie, and ice cream. And cheesecake. And carrot cake. I digress. The 3 Moms sent in a recipe forÃ‚ Crepes with Bananas Foster Sauce, that she originally posted at Happy to be at Home
What are you going to drink with all of this goodness? I learned this week that aÃ‚ Mexican Horchata
Ã‚ is a hearty drink made from rice and almonds. Doesn't it sounds good? Beth posted that one atÃ‚ Almost Maven
