Ok, gals! I am sitting here looking at my calendar and it seems that if we could have recipes submitted by Sunday the 29th of October then I can get them out to you gals by the beginning of November. (a week and a half for you non calendar users:)
Lets try to theme this month around Fall foods. Maybe our favorite Thanksgiving recipe or something along those lines. Don't forget to give a little explaination about your recipe and remeber that it needs to be a recipe you have already tried and like.
Email them to me at moprik@yahoo.com. I will compile them and post them on this blog together.

I have heard from only a couple of you about the apron swap. What does everyone think? Please take a moment to post your thoughts on it-good or bad.
I am open to any suggestions to make Gourmet Gals as easy and fun as possible. Please get involved!

The quote at the top of this page was so profound to me. There is never a time I am cooking that an ingredient, a recipe, a smell, or a taste doesn't envoke some sort of memory of someone or somewhere. There is something very magical about food and I am glad that we can all share, in some small way, the magic together!

So many of you are on board for another round of recipe swaps! Hooray! I'll send around an email to let everyone know when to get recipes in by. I am thinking if we can have them in by the last week of October then I can have them compiled and posted on this blog for the beginning of November. I haven't heard from you gals concerning the apron swap. What do you think??? Any interest?

The Great Apron Exchange

I mentioned in the email that I thought we could have an apron exchange for the upcoming holiday season. What do you think? I discovered this idea from another blogspot called
http://apronswap.blogspot.com/ Check it out to see what I am talking about.
That particular one is more involved. Each of the members has their own blog and the swap is secret. You only know who you are sending one to not who is sending to you. It is your responsibility to research the person you are making an apron for and try to make one that fits their personality. It is a bit more involved. I am willing to get as involved in it as you girls are.
Post some thoughts on it and let me know what you think. I would ideally like to do the swap by the week of Thanksgiving so we can have them to wear for the holidays. But if that is too soon we can do it the first week of December.

Hello girls! Time to start swapping recipes again. This time I will be posting the recipes on this blog instead of sending them through email. Hopefully this will make it more convinient for you gals to access them and use them. Also it will allow us to share our thoughts and ideas by posting comments as well. I hope you will all find this to be as fun and interactive as I hope it will be.
