    What a fun hop, I am so glad I stopped by today! Pete’s Mighty Purty Privies looks like a real hoot of a read, kindle/mobi, thank you for the giveaway opportunity. We have several staple treats that are always on the menu for holiday fun. One in-particular is Artichoke Squares, which is a mixture of marinated artichoke hearts, eggs, cheese, garlic, onion, and a touch of oregano mixed together and baked in a 9×13 dish – then cut into small squares. Yum, as you can imagine they are quite rich, but so very good 🙂 dz59001[at]gmail[dot]com

    • Oh, that artichoke squares sound delicious. I need to copy and past that so I don’t forget. And so easy. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll send out Pete this weekend. Hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
