Welcome to the Hearth and Soul Hop for June 12, 2012—the food carnival for and about food that not only nourishes our bodies, but our souls! Hearth & Soul turns 2 this week and there is lots to celebrate with Alea and April both sponsoring giveaways.
♦ To enter April’s $50 (or 40 pounds) amazon.com gift card giveaway, visit The 21st Century Housewife and link to Hearth & Soul there, or send her an email at april [at] 21stcenturyhousewife [dot] com.
Highlights from last week:
Saving Wilted Lettuce by Victoria at Green Idea Review is something I’ve used for saving celery, but not lettuce. This is gonna save me a buck or two on lettuce I forgot about in the crisper this summer.
Green Chile Tomatillo Salsa by MJ’s Kitchen looked so fresh I could almost smell the New Mexico roasted green chiles—one of my favorite summertime flavors!
Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Mushrooms by Elsa Cooks sounds mouth-watering good! I guess I need to plan to look for jalapenos and chiles at the farmers market this weekend, I see a theme developing here.
