SATURDAY, AUGUST 11 CHALLENGE: THE FOOD!

Post by BarbP » Sat Aug 11, 2018 1:47 pm

Welcome to our Blue Plate Special challenges for August! Join us all month long in August as we take a road trip. Whether you're taking a day trip or a trip across the country, there are always places to see and things to do. Join us all month long as we stop and smell the roses and enjoy the little distractions along the way.

The deadline is September 3 to complete the challenges; please post in the member gallery and here in the challenge threads. Each entry earns you one chance in the prize drawing -- with a $10 gift certificate for the winner to the online store of your choice!


Today's challenge involves a topic near and dear to my heart -- the FOOD! One of my favorite aspects of traveling is visiting restaurants and sampling local cuisine. Sometimes we're in a hurry and opt for what's fast, close and familiar (think "fast food" or chain restaurants), but we also enjoy asking residents for their recommendations on where to go and what to eat. Because after all, "YOU GOTTA EAT!"

For today's challenge, please feature some aspect of dining on vacation. Was there a local "hole in the wall" that you loved? A fine dining experience? A regional dish?

Please post your finished layout, card or other project in this thread no later than September 3; remember, EACH entry earns you ONE entry into the monthly prize drawing. Can't wait to see what you create!

This one took a little extra effort. lol I had to find some photos that would work and send them out to be printed. Luckily my DH picked them up on his home way home from work.

I did a second layout for this challenge, featuring the iconic "slopper", a dish that supposedly was "born" at Gray's Coors Tavern here in Pueblo:

I had been wanting to do a "slopper" layout but needed photos. These were from an internet site like Yelp where you can post photos; there are directions on how to copy to your computer so I snagged a couple ;) But I do have quite a bit of free time, lots of photos from this summer and tons of supplies to use up, so I'm taking advantage of all that :D
