The Gallery of Favorites with The 21st Century Housewife


Alea of Premeditated Leftovers and I want to welcome you to our weekend blog hop, The Gallery of Favorites. We are posting the Gallery a bit early this week as I will be travelling tomorrow morning, and we also thought it might be helpful with the upcoming holiday weekend in the US.

The Gallery of Favorites is a place for you to feature favorite posts from your own blog. Although Alea and I both spend a lot of our time writing about food, we do have many other interests and know that our readers do as well. The Gallery of Favorites is a place for all bloggers – not just food bloggers – to share their ideas, interests and passions. Of course, recipe and food posts are very welcome too.

We want to thank everyone who shared posts last week. There really were a wonderful variety of posts, and it’s exciting to watch the Gallery growing as more people find out about it. Please do share it with your friends – we would love to see even more people linking up.

This week Alea and I would like to feature Ann Kroeker’s ‘Comparative Tasting Mushrooms’ post.

In this post, Ann, the author of Not So Fast, Slow Down Solutions for Frenzied Families, investigates the idea of taking time with our food to notice the subtle differences in flavour and texture. Inspired by the book How to Think Like Leonardo daVinci by Michael J Gelb, she also explores being fully aware of the wonder of what we eat, and really paying attention not just to how something tastes, but also to the act of tasting. This thought-provoking post was a pleasure to read, and I’ve found it popping into my mind no many occasions since, encouraging me to take my time and really appreciate the all the sensory pleasures of the food I eat.

I encourage you to go and visit Ann’s lovely blog, where as well as sharing some wonderful posts, she also hosts a weekly Food on Fridays linky.

Alea and I would love it if you would share your favorite posts with our Gallery of Favorites below. Posts on any family friendly subject are welcome, and of course your recipes and food posts are very welcome too. You can share new or archived posts, but please update the latter with a link back to one of the hosts. It’s easy –

Link up your favorite post(s) below.

Include a link to your actual posts, rather than to your blog.
