Say-Gday-Party-FeaturesDo You Like To See What Other Bloggers Get Up To? {PayItForward}

Of course you do as “being curious” is a universal trait of every country, culture and especially bloggers too!

Natasha and I would like to personally thank everyone who supports our parties each week!

I do hope everyone has as much fun as Natasha and I do!

With over 400+ submissions to last week’s party, it was a VERY busy time in “meeting and greeting” everyone, but it is is always fun to see what tutorials, DIY projects and recipes people “yearn to return” to share at our parties!

Have you added What’s On The List to your Google+ Circles? I hope you do!

This week’s Stay Calm slogan was suggested to me, and then I saw this image via Pinterest; the never-ending pin place where time seems to fly and nothing gets done!

After all, viewing pins of all kinds is about escapism and fun!

We would welcome people continuing to stop by other submissions at the party and say G’day!

Natasha and I love when we read comments, thanking us as hosts, as it really does make our day!

Not in any order (as you know by now I don’t play favorites), I’d like to introduce you all to the above blogs that are featured by What’s On The List; all will be contacted personally and all can proudly share my “You’ve Been Featured” on What’s On The List badge on their blog should they wish to!

Say Gday Feature

Today, I decided to share these blogs as after all, food, eating and Pay It Forward experiences like real life, is “all about fun!”

Starting with the top left, Cindy from Little Miss Celebration‘s Hocus Pocus -Ode to Binx Wreath caught my eye right away, as it VERY VIVIDLY reminded me of Halloween childhood fun as I shared in Curious What Makes People Happy? {Pay It Forward} Posts?:

“Princess Svelana (of Are You Curious About The Treasure Of The Food Princess fame) and I used to pretend we were witches (good ones); ones who could cast spells on people who were not as good as we were!”

IMAGINE how many spells (goods ones of course) Princess Svetlana and I could do?

I think our fun with Binx would be more along the lines of being mischievous, the way Princess Svetlana and I are STILL today!

I loved Shari from Pure Grace FarmsCountry Style Chicken with Dumplings; very “warm and welcoming” indeed!

This dish so reminded me of childhood yum as I have always enjoyed chicken with dumplings and don’t know if it was more about the dish I remember, or the fun I had dunking the dumplings or when I used to sneak (when my mother wasn’t looking of course) licking the plate clean!

Perhaps THAT is WHY FANG aka me, still does it today; for fun and makes FANG feel mischievous too!

Blue Cheese Buffalo Waffle Fries by Dawn of Homemaking Hacks!

Does the “sound” of this dish bring tears (of joy of course) to one’s eyes?

Being born and bred in New York, “any Buffalo recipe” is ingrained in you and there is always some childhood memory about fun, feeling grown up experiencing blue cheese that stays with you “for life!”



I better more on PLEASE!

When I saw Katerina from Culinary FlavorsCaramel Chocolate Torte, I had already had a plate in hand and was awaiting my turn to be served through the computer!

What a stunning cake and please, take the time to hop over and read about not only October being her “mother’s birthday and her father’s Name Day,” but also about Christmas traditions!; lovely!

Dwelling HappinessSimple Pumpkin Spice Sauce had me exciting with “sugarplums dancing in my head” trying to figure out what recipes I could use this with for breakfast, lunch, snack, dessert or with a dinner’s main course!

There’s nothing like Southern Beignets to get to one’s heart!

When I saw Maria from Ten at the Table‘s How to Make Southern Beignets, the recipe I IMMEDIATELY wanted to start!

I really enjoyed seeing Yen from Blue Bird Green‘s How to Make a Giant Paper Pom Pom Wreath which “inspired” me for a Moroccan party Chef Georgio and I had recently!

I was all set to make these in red when I saw them at my dollar discount store and they were on sale for 50 cents; a bargain I could not have overlooked and buying them (this time) saved me heaps of time.

I have made these many times when I was little as Princess Svetlana and I used to LOVE doing anything that had to do with “arts and craft!”

Here’s the pom poms from our party!

Last, but certainly not least (and I didn’t realize I picked two from one site this week) is Shari from Pure Grace Farm‘s Homemade Fig Newtons; my mum used to buy them all the time when I was little!

Shari provided both a Whole Wheat and Gluten Free Fig Newton Recipe!; very healthy indeed!

Seeing I couldn’t decide, I thought I would share these “Honorable Mentions” and “Feature” these too!

Penny from Penny’s Vintage‘s All Decked out for Fall!

Tatanisha from A Worthy Read‘s Body Part Parfait!

Princess Svetlana and I used to save “things” that “looked like body parts” in jars to scare people around Halloween!

My FASCINATION with saving body parts IMMEDIATELY ended when my surgeon offered me my tonsils in a jar after hearing how I liked to “PRESERVE” things! lol

How can you NOT smile with Echo from Domain of The Mad Mommy‘s Falling Into Ask Away Friday photo as is priceless to me about childhood leaves and childhood dog memories!

If YOU had to pick JUST ONE, which one would it be?

It’s all for fun today!

All comments “on my blog please”, shares and pins MAKE MY DAY!
