Now it's time to unveil the theme and your challenge for August!
August is always bursting with the juiciest, ripest and sweetest of summer fruits. Peaches, berries, mirabelles, plums, apricots - the list goes on and on! I have to tell you the truth I have really been going crazy working and experimenting with all these fruits lately.
However, I realized one thing - all my creations and experiments was missing one ingredient - chocolate! And I am supposed to be a chocoholic?
As a matter of fact as I was deciding on the theme for this mingle, I browsed through my previous posts and realized I had not posted a chocolate recipe in a long time. Am I cured of my addiction? No - to remedy this quickly I decided to dedicate a whole mingle to chocolate, but so that we all do not miss out on the lovely fruit of August we'll be integrating a summer fruit of choice.
Join me in my August mingle! Create a chocolate dish packed with sweet summer fruit, or if you prefer - sweet summer fruit packed with chocolate. Let your imagination run wild and allow your creativity to unfold. I am looking forward to your wonderful fruit and chocolate dishes!
Deadline: 8 September 2008

I really look forward to all your fruity and chocolaty creations - my mouth is already watering!
