Fabulous Friday 5! 5 Favorite things from the week!

On this wonderful Friday I have decided to show some of my fellow bloggers some love. Here are 5 of my fave's from the week!

Eat. Drink. Play in the Dirt. 
3 things I love! Check out this blog by Nikki! She is super fun and a great garden inspiration! Oh and did I mention, she has great drink ideas! 
She invented the MooTini!!!
 This week she grabbed my attention with her bird seed balls!

Michael, at My Earth Garden Is working on creating a rural Homestead from the ground up. For the month of April he did 20 recipes in 30 days! Wait till you here about his May challenge! But, you will have to check out his blog to find out what it is! 
This week he shared a wonderful recipe, Cashew Chicken & Spring Rolls! 
OH.... Did I mention he is a Garden Rockstar and the Author of I Garden: Urban Style

My pal Daniel from Your Small Kitchen Garden is a Jack of all trades! A great all around guy! He has been my food preserving pal since I started my blog! I stalk his page often! He is always giving good seed growing advice with great videos to follow! 
Recently, Daniel wrote a Fantabulous book! Yes, you can! And freeze and dry it, too!
Of course the blog entry that snagged me this week, has to do with Preserving food! 
He shows the many ways you can accomplish preserving food!

All around good guy Bill Bird! Very funny with his adventures in Gardening and Bee's! 
Whenever I need a good comedy relief, I head to Bill's blog!
 Sacramento Vegetable Gardening is all about growing in Sacramento, where I am from!
One thing I love about Bill, is his devotion to his wife and goddess Venus! That man truly loves that woman!
The post that had me salivating this week was all about Artichokes!
 I have to say, I am super jealous of all the chokes he will be consuming! From reading his blog, I probably wont be getting any chokes this season from my plants!  There's always next year!

Last but not least!

My girl Bren from BG Garden! Bren is the host of #Gardenchat on Twitter! 
A fun place for Gardeners to chat and learn new ideas. She lines up awesome guest hosts each Monday night!
 She also has a great blog covering many topics from growing, eating and social media! 
This week Bren took us on an adventure to Arkansas! Where she hung out with P.Allen Smith and many other great bloggers. 
P.Allen Smith had a Garden 2 Blog event where he invited bloggers, to see his garden home and many other great places! It looked like they had a great time!
I love seeing what Bren will cook up next!
