I remember a few years ago hunting for Mennonite recipes on the computer. There are actually some really good sites. . .if you can imagine what the recipes should look like when they are finished. I noted that the recipe blogs that had Mennonite recipes didn't have any pictures. After I noted some other women of like mind posting some pretty amazing looking recipes. . .the idea was started in the middle of the night .. .when I do some of my best thinking.
I emailed those few gals who I knew would be good sports .. . .then I emailed a few gals who regularly commented on my blog but didn't have blogs of their own. ..thereby proving also to be good sports. .. and my plan was put into action.
Who would have known that people love to look at food and recipes as much as they do?
Who would have known that their is so much satisfaction in teaching through a blog how to cook?
These gals are keen on sharing all they have learned so that the joy of cooking will not be lost.
I have appreciated the enthusiasm and the attention to detail and the desire I see in these gals to contribute beautiful pictures and recipes.
Yesterday I went to get the mail. . .and my senses were alerted with a small brown paper package in the middle of the pile.
I love anticipation. . . .so I took the package home. . . and opened up all the other mail .. .all the while. . .pausing to squeeze the package. . then I sat down and slowly opened it up. . .and smiled.
These girls sent me an apron. . .just because. It came from Trish's house and she enclosed a beautiful hand written card .. .I was so tickled pink.
I put it on. . .and pranced around. . and looked in the mirror. . .and modeled it for my beloved. . .and he looked mildly amused. . .
Fortunately things were happening in my kitchen so the photo op was set up. . .and I posed for you to see.
Thank you my dear cooking pals. . .you all should have one of these. .
I had visions of us all wearing matching aprons . . cooking up a feast to share.. . . more thinking in the middle of the night.
When the cooking blog was born. . .I wanted to be clear that we would never profit from the sale of the blog or the publishing of it. . .but no one mentioned anything about not selling aprons. . .
How many aprons would we have to sell to have a Mennonite Girls Can Cook Conference?
Have a wonderful day my friends.. .
