Septummer

We Michiganders don’t let go of summer easily. In fact, we call September late summer–or Indian summer–whichever you prefer. And that is why we fully expect to be outside–maybe even in October! Our theme was ArtPrize and so, in keeping with it, we collected lovely images from our friends who are in ArtPrize, like this one from Lori Eslick…

Visit Lori’s website here to see her beautiful work.

We did what we could to make our food ‘art-worthy.’ We came up with a tie for first place!
Chris Montgomery, our special guest, brought a Jackson Pollock version of bruschetta

Here’s Chris constructing his work of art. You need to visit him at Rezervoir Lounge and try some of his amazing plant-based recipes.

AND Andrea Hensen and housemates Sharon and Victoria stunned us with their watermelon cake…

In other news, Nancy McQuate made short work of the concord grapes that were ripening at the time of the dinner. She’s a homesteader at heart (who knew you could make beer out of grapes?)

OR composed our own art photos (in honor of our theme). A three-way tie goes to winners: Morgan Doane, Shane VanOosterhout and Kevin Schalkofski (I wasn’t paying enough attention to know who took which photos). I also need to add a big thank you to Nancy McQuate and Morgan Doane for the photos they took.
