Pink Saturday

by Michelle on March 21, 2009

Welcome to Pink Saturday graciously hosted by Miss Beverly of How Sweet the Sound.

I had so much fun visiting all the Pink blogs last week that I decided to participate again. This is a primarily a food blog although sprinkled throughout are pictures of my dogs, cats and various other critters and happenings on my property, Spend-A-Buck Farm. Please take your time and if you’re ready for lunch, I’ve got some great recipes for you to try.

This is part of my cactus collection that are scattered here and there throughout my house. I had many, many cactuses but because of our recent construction/renovation and all the dust unfortunately some did not survive, but the ones that did are nice and healthy and very happy to be back in my kitchen.

This is one of my favorite bread plates. I love the turquoise with the tiny rosebuds. It looks old, it’s not. It also looks expensive but it wasn’t.

This is my Pincushion Doll and she has sat on my sewing desk for almost 20 years now. She’s a little bent and her gown is becoming faded and discolored, but she is very precious to me.

Since my blog is a food blog, you didn’t think I would let you go without offering one of my mouthwatering recipes, did you? This is a Muffuletta and I served it on Super Bowl Sunday. Not only is it a huge sandwich, it was a huge hit! It’s very easy to make and took no time at all.

    What a great post. I love the pin cushion doll. It’s amazing how much sentimental items the tiniest items can carry. And, how could I forget this muffaletta? I remember it back from the Super Bowl. Oh no, I have not forgotten it. However, you have just reinstated my craving for this awesome-looking sandwich!

    I love the furry look of the cactuses! It’s too bad they didn’t all make it through the renovations.

    Lovely post. Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my blog. What I love about cacti is their unexpected beauty and seemingly fragility once the flower blooms.Happy Pink Saturday.amy@maisbonbelle

  • Kayte March 22, 2009 at 10:12 pm

    Oh, wow…all those plants! And that dish does look old and does look expensive! Beautiful. What is a pincushion doll? I am so clueless on things…is there a pincushion under her dress, or is she made of a pincushion, etc.? She’s very cute…just never heard of that before! The sandwich is really nice…I made this for the guys when they were watching games last week. We called it Michelle’s Special!

  • Angela March 23, 2009 at 12:14 am
