Friday Feast ~ Corn Chowder


Over the next several weeks, I will be sharing some of the pictures from the Scottish Games. My husband is a photography geek, which is perfect when we travel. I write and he snaps the photos. πŸ™‚

Also, I’m limiting my Friday Feast to every other Friday. I hope you won’t mind, but starting on Monday, I will be sharing excerpts of my book, Dragon Knight’s Axe as part of Medieval Monday–from first encounters, to the first kiss, and many more. It’s different from what we’ve done in the past, but if you’re on facebook, there is a wonderful group called, Medieval Romance Lovers. Please take a look and join in the fun. There are many more authors there who do not have blogs, so they’ll be posting excerpts from their Medieval stories on this site.

***Congratulations to Celticlady51!*** You’re the winner of my Scottish Gift basket from the Highland Games! Thank you to everyone who stopped by and signed up for my Monthly Newsletter and Blog. I loved chatting and meeting so many lovely people. It was a weekend filled with lots of laughter and fun. I had a blast (except for those pesky allergies, haha…) and will be returning next year.

    Hi Mary. The recipe sound wonderful. I can’t wait for you to pick out sections of Dragon Knight’s Axe. I want to see if they match my favorite parts.

    • Thanks, Dianne. We’re trying something different this fall with Medieval Mondays, so I hope everyone enjoys this new twist. And…I might toss in some from the upcoming release, Dragon Knight’s Shield.

      Hope you enjoy the chowder. πŸ™‚

  3. chowder sounds yummy, can’t wait for your pictures of the highland games

    • I heard the games were fantastic! I took a short walk-through early last Sunday, but some of the places were still closed. I was hoping to see the Birds of Prey exhibit. I love being an author signing at these events, but it was tough not being able to see anything. Thank goodness for my husband’s pictures. πŸ™‚

  4. Looks delicious and I take your word it’s tasty.
    Good luck with the new round of Medieval Monday!
    I had no idea it started again. I’d have liked to join too, but. . .
