I’ve hinted on Facebook and Twitter about this week’s awesome dinner. Are you hungry?
I hope so. Starting today, some of Arkansas’ best food bloggers are sharing dishes as part of the Southern Summer Nights Virtual Dinner Party (follow on Twitter at the link). It’s a progressive dinner of sorts, with one delicious dish each day! Hopefully, this will get your tastebuds going and you’ll enjoy what is being made and may influence your own foodie style. If you want to ramp up the party atmosphere then you may want to look into liquor delivery in Denver, Colorado, or wherever you are based, so you can complement what you make with your drinks.
You can also follow along at each of these bloggers’ sites on the appropriate day. Below are links to each participant’s blog website; check my Facebook and Twitter each day for links to the specific blog posts.
Sunday, August 11 – Ambiance with Desperately Seeking Gina
Monday, August 12 – Appetizers with Dining with Debbie
Tuesday, August 13 – Refreshments with NWA Foodie
Wednesday, August 14 – Side Dish with The Food Adventuress
Thursday, August 15 – Side Dish with Fancy Pants Foodie
Friday, August 16 – Main Dish with Eggs and Herbs
Saturday, August 17 -Dessert with Aunt Nubby’s Kitchen
Today, check out Gina Knuppenburg’s amazing work over at Desperately Seeking Gina in setting the mood for a great party. I may be able to cook, but there’s one thing I stink at and it’s decoration. Gina’s got it covered in this amazing how-to on making cloth flower place settings.
And Gina’s post is your first chance to enter our giveaway from Microplane and Argenta Market! Microplane is offering an $85 prize pack, and Argenta Market is giving away a $75 all-Arkansas gift basket. I’m a big fan of both companies, and I wouldn’t participate in giveaways of products that I didn’t love. Check back on each blogger’s featured day to enter again.
Of course, I’m especially hoping you’ll join me here on Thursday for a show-stopping side dish celebrating Arkansas food. In a funky way. I can’t wait to show you!
Hope you enjoy…I’m getting hungry already!
