Eat Make Grow Blog Hop - May Picnics

Eat Make Grow Blog Hop - April Fails www.FoyUpdate.blogspot.com

Welcome to April's Eat Make Grow Blog Hop where you share what you have been eating with your family, growing in your garden or making with all your creative impulses. Eat Make Grow is a collective link party that is shared across three blogs and runs every first Thursday and goes for 20 days. No matter which blog you choose to link up your post with, it will show up on all three sites!

Eat Make Grow is a way to share with many people posts about your domestic doings, whether that’s gardening, crafting or trying out a new recipe. We want to learn about it!

Every month, we will feature the most popular link, one chosen by the the host and a group favorite.

Your Hosts:
Miranda from Pocket Pause
Marigold from Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky! 
Foy from Foy Update (That's me!)



We’re not big fans of rules so there are just two of them:
  1. Link up posts telling us how you cooked it, made it or grew it with your own hands. Eat Make Grow is about sharing our projects. Please no advertising, propaganda, corporate giveaways or information-only articles. We may remove links if they aren't on topic.
  2. 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 participants' posts.We will feature three posts each month and we will only consider posts that have a link back. A text link is fine, or you can grab our button and put it anywhere on your blog (html in my sidebar):
 


This month your host is Foy from Garden. Cook. Write. Repeat.

Hi, everybody!

It is finally starting starting to look like spring here in Indiana.  Our weeping cherry tree is laden with pale pink blooms and the rhubarb seems to double in size daily.  I've heard a couple people have found morels and I'm ready to go out and harvest the wild onions known as ramps!  When the weather is nice it seems a shame to be indoors any time you don't have to which is why picnics are the theme for this month.  Share any crafts, recipes or projects that work for outdoor dining!

Last months April fails were excellent reads.  I learned a surprising amount and even found myself calling my husband over to check out some of your antics.  I even got distracted for a good long while looking through Pinterest Fail websites.  This list of 20 Pinterest Fails from Bored Panda was by far the most entertaining.  Some of your blog posts surely could have made this list.

The most clicked post was:

The Great Cookie Bowl Adventure from Better with June

June recounts her attempt to make cookie bowls.  The worst part was the magnificent mess.  At least she made the best of it by using the cookie crumbs she pried off the pan to make an inside out cookie bowl.

I've been eyeing these Mod Podge glitter shoe tutorial showing up on Pinterest.  It sounds like such a perfect way to rejuvenation a shoe that's too scuffed up to be presentable.  Or in Mindy's case to make her wedding shoes!  Although as she points out in her post When Good DIY Goes Bad - Glitter Shoes, you might not get it right the first time.  It had not occurred to me that the color of the soul of shoe doesn't get podged so it had better be a color you want.

I appreciated learning along with you guys.  If you aren't failing you aren't trying, am I right?

  4. Thanks for hosting this great hop! Lots of great ideas, recipes and stuff! I really liked #27, #34, and #40. #40 gave a recipe for lemonade made from lemons and honey! Mmmmm. I am going to try it with lemons and stevia this summer, as soon as my stevia plant gets bigger!
