Monthly Mingle: Champagne Roundup

MMBadge-03-2010-Roundup  

To celebrate 4 years of What’s For Lunch, Honey? I invited everyone to join me in a toast. Thanks to all for the tons of wishes per email, comments and Twitter. A very special thanks to all those who took a moment to create a little something and bring it along to the mingle.

It was a hard theme and I got many people really thinking about cooking with the bubbly ingredient. But what came out of it was a few select recipes that I am very happy to present!

A quick note regarding the next Monthly Mingle – I’ve had to cancel it and decided to take a break this month. I’ll be back in April with a new theme.

Now to the lovely entries:
