Welcome to the May 3rd Foodie Friday.
It's been a great week at Rattlebridge.

She gave me a set of beautiful pottery dishes and napkins,
and I couldn't wait to use them in a Foodie Friday post.
Here they are, Mama!

We would like to ask pretty please if Pinners will "pin" the "Picks" and FF contributions from the source blogs, not from Foodie Friday. Thanks!
Thanks so much for visiting us today. Bandwidth and I are inspired by your recipes--and by you. Food blogging is more difficult than any kind because of the sheer work that goes on behind the scenes--planning, shopping, prep work, cooking, taking photographs, culling those photos, and cleaning. We admire what you do and how well you do it.
We hope to see you again soon! Have a great, food-filled weekend.
Mlee and Bandy
