Seasonal Saturday & Fresh, Clean, and Pure Friday!

Yay, it’s officially grilling season with this Memorial Day Weekend!  I hope that you’re cooking and grilling up some special dishes!   So go ahead and share them here!

Fresh, Clean and Pure Friday and Seasonal Saturday began almost one year ago for the purpose of bloggers to share any post related to how they are improving their lives through a variety of ways:  cooking more fresh and seasonal recipes for improved health, how and what we are gardening, whether floral or food-related, what improvements we are making in our lives to freshen up our outlooks and lifestyles, etc.  I hope that you’ve enjoyed the many posts that have been shared and those that have been featured each week.  If I have failed to stop by and thank you, please forgive me and know that I really am grateful and so glad to have you join in!

Please display the button and link to this get-together on your post and use the URL address of your post only.  Thanks for your kind blog etiquette!

I hope you enjoy the following six featured blog posts that were shared last week . . . . all food and gardening-related.  At this point, this get-together will focus only on recipes and gardening posts also.

K from “Cooking With K” shared a favorite fresh, spring-time salad:  Strawberry and Bacon Salad.  This looks so good and so healthy!

Claudia from “What’s Cooking Italian Style”, shared her Shrimp and Haddock Florentine Linguine!  Oh my goodness, if this isn’t a treat with the addition of fresh spring spinach to a pasta heaven of seafood!

Introducing Erin from “art+food+life” with this ‘perfect-for-Memorial-Day’ burger:  Grilled gouda stuffed hamburgers!  Erin’s timing for this monster burg is unbelievable!  I love stuffed burgers!  What a great recipe post!

Lisa from “Flour Me With Love” stole my heart with her Tropical Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting.  After spending time in the tropics, I just cannot get enough pineapples and coconut, and pineapple is fresh and in season right now!  What a treat!

What do you do with your bumper crops from your garden?  “The Healing Home’s” author informs in her post about freezing spring vegetables, which is my preferred method of putting up my produce.  Soon we gardeners will all be busy in this process!

What incredible, eye-popping color from “aquariann’s” Pink Princess Weigela in her garden.  Breathtaking, huh!  I love how the photo is blurry on purpose!
Recipe and gardening posts only . . . thank you!

To be considered for one of the 5 – 6 weekly featured posts, a link and/or button to this get-together needs to appear on your shared post.  

Please use the URL address of your post and not your blog.

And lastly, please try to visit one or two of the bloggers who’d like to meet you and have you meet and hopefully, follow them.

Please spread the word about these two link-up parties as well.  Thanks for your kindness!

Your comments make me smile and I promise to get right back to you both here and on your blog! I may be slow at it because I get easily distracted by something brewing in the kitchen, hummingbirds in my gardens, and student papers to grade! BUT I DO VISIT YOUR BLOG and comment back!
