Eat Make Grow Thursday Blog Hop #1

Welcome to Eat Make Grow Thursday! My favorite day of the week where you share what you have been eating with your family, growing in your garden or making with all your creative impulses.Whichever blog that you choose to link up your post, it will show up on both sites! This blog hop is a way to share with many people posts about your domestic doings, whether that’s growing veggies, hosting parties, sewing, mixing up cleaning supplies, or trying out a new recipe. We want to learn about it.

This is our first hop! We are pretty excited. 

Your Hosts 
Marigold from Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky!
Foy from Garden. Cook. Write. Repeat.

We’re not big fans of rules so there are just two of them:
Please link your posts back to one of the hosting blogs. This is a common blog hop courtesy. This link helps build the Eat Make Grow community by sending your readers to all of the other participant’s posts. We will feature two posts each week and we will only consider posts that have a link back. A text link is fine, or you can grab this button and put it anywhere on your blog:

No big corporation or business advertising or promotional posts. Let’s not dilute Eat Make Grow with junky posts. We don’t mind helping out the little home grown businesses of independent bloggers or handmade merchants (Etsy, etc.).

That’s it!
So if you’re here, you probably already know all about me. But who is this Foy person? Let’s take a look at her:

Foy and I met in Savannah,Georgia, where our husbands went to graduate school. Those were the pre-children days and over the course of a 2-year MFA program, we made fast, tight friends with the other grad students in Steve’s class. I miss those sticky days with it’s weekly LOST parties, cheap wine and Orphan Thanksgivings (for those who couldn’t drive home to their parents over the holidays). After school, Foy and her husband Jeff went on to serve with the Peace Corps in Panama for a couple of years while Steve and I moved to California to make babies. Over the years we have kept in touch through our blogs, and have even managed to visit each other a couple of times. On our most recent vacation, out last stop was to visit Foy and Jeff and their brand spankin’ new baby girl. She didn’t do much but sleep and eat, but then one morning at breakfast, with nary a whimper for warning, she had the most incredible, long-range projectile vomit I have ever seen, and she won my heart forever.
Foy is a horticulturalist by trade and her blog, Garden. Cook. Write. Repeat. is all about growing, cooking and eating good food. Real food. She has a pretty fantastic visual collection of her recipes that you can find on Pinterest. Along with her beautiful pictures and tasty recipes, she shares her knowledge of gardening, nutrition and sustainable, responsible living.

Now, let’s hop!
