  1. I would come if I could:) Make sure you writeb and photograph about this great event:))

  2. I'm glad you all are finally getting some cooler weather. Thanks for the menu helps for next week.

  3. Everything looks delicious. I'm stopping by from Barbara's blog and I enjoyed the mushroom burger recipe.

  4. Miz Helen, that shrimp dish looks absolutely amazing! Glad to know the temps are beginning to cool off for you down in Texas!

  5. Miz Helen, I love everything you cook! And this week is no exception! I would love the recipe for Mexican bean salad! Sound so yummy!
    Thanks for sharing all of your culinary talent with us ON THE MENU MONDAY!

  6. It is becoming chili weather here! Cool fall temps. Your quiche looks so good, beautiful color.

  7. Your menu this upcoming week looks so good. And, I love the idea of the chili cook-off. It is about that time for some chili, so I might just whip some up, blog about it and submit it. However, as you know ... in Texas we might think it is chili weather one day, but the next it isn't. Have a great week.

  8. Goodness I am coming to stay for the week!It all looks so scrumptious and I will double shrimp helpings please! And a chilli cook off...heaven! Beam me up...Mexican bean salad sounds like a good one to!
