Comfort Food From The Hearth and Soul Link Party

The Hearth and Soul Link Party
Welcome to the Hearth and Soul Link Party where we love recipes for food from the hearth to feed your soul, but we also welcome all family friendly posts, whether they be about home, family, travel, self improvement, crafts or DIY. This week I’m featuring comfort food and great ways to use your Thanksgiving leftovers from last week’s party. I also want to feature a post that is all about building community – something I’m really passionate about.

Building Community

Colletta of Colletta’s Kitchen Sink shared a post about 2017 PenPal Sign-Ups with us last week. Although most of us do a lot of stuff online, there’s still nothing like receiving an actual letter in the mail. It’s a great way to expand your horizons and ‘meet’ others from around the world. So if you fancy making a new friend, do pop on over to Colletta’s Kitchen Sink to sign up!

For this week’s Hearth and Soul Hop, I am sharing my Apple-Pear Cranberry Chutney which is a delicious accompaniment to chicken and turkey dishes. It is also yummy spooned over ice cream or frozen yogurt! Have a lovely week and as always, many thanks for all that you and Swathi do for our blogging friends!
