welcome, pull up a fork
the ladies of peanut butter etouffee
welcome! we understand that we've been tagged as one of blogger's blogs of note. we're blushing, really, you just can't see because we have our backs turned to the camera. we noticed a few more people dropping by the site, so we thought we'd take a minute to introduce ourselves and give you a little taste of peanut butter etouffee (pun definitely intended). so, welcome, pull up a fork and dig in! we've provided a few links below so you can hit the highlights, but we hope you'll explore a bit on your own, too, and find something you like...and share your comments! we hope to see you back at our table soon!
by way of introduction, this blog is written by three women, three crazy women. we're all related: mooncrazy and doodles are sisters and maltese parakeet (aka lil bird) is mooncrazy's daughter and, hence, doodles' niece. food is the axis on which our family turns. it makes up our family's shared memories and experiences. we are the type of family that makes up a fabulous meal for a special family occasion and then, as we sit there eating, discuss other fabulous meals we've enjoyed, and restaurants we've been to and meals we'd like to make...need i go on? it's all about the food. as mooncrazy once said, "our common thread is kitchen twine." it all started almost two years and 350 posts ago when doodles emailed lil bird some links for food blogs and said she'd sure love to do something like that. the name came from mooncrazy, who had been saving it for a while to use on something good (her punk band having never got off the ground).
so, here's a quick hit on some of the highlights of pbe so far:
