This evening we had a rare opportunity. We attended a book signing for an unique, new cookbook titled "Mennonite Girls Can Cook". Two of the beautiful, gracious women who helped create the cookbook were at our local bookstore for the signing. I can't tell you how much those of us who attended the signing, enjoyed meeting them. Most importantly, all author royalties will be donated to charity to feed hungry children. Now how's that for a deal, a cookbook chocked full of delicious, tried and true recipes, with the proceeds going to a very special cause. The concept proved to be an exciting adventure for all the girls involved.
How interesting, five of us from the East Coast meeting for the first time, the two of them from the west coast of Canada. A few years ago I was introduced to some of these ladies, when I "accidently" came across their cooking blog. This blog lead me to some of their individual blogs. I enjoyed my visits so much, that I found myself going back quite often. Tonight, it meant so much to have the privilege of personally meeting these wonderful girls. Pictured above from left to right, my Aunt, Anneliese(one of the authors, me, Lovella, another one of the authors, and my Sister-in-Law. We all laughed and talked like we had known each other for years. What fun!
Adding to the joy of the signing, was the fact that my daughter and her good friend had the opportunity to join all of us,to get their cookbooks signed too. Pictured above, from left to right, is my daughter's good friend, Jeane', Anneliese, Lovella, and my daughter, Jeane'. On a side note, my daughter was named after her friend and that is why they share the same name. Thanks to my daughter I have these great pictures.
If you would like to visit Anneliese's blog, you can find it at "foreverythingaseason.blogspot.com/"
or Lovella's blog at "lovella-at-home.blogspot.com/"
If you need some very good recipes, you can find them at "mennonitegirlscancook.blogspot.com/"
What fun for me to meet two bloggers in person, after knowing them only through blogland the last few years. I only wish we all could have sat around a table and talk for hours. Maybe someday:)
