Recipe Exchange

3

I’ve received two recipe-exchange e-mails in the past week — ones asking me to share a recipe and then forward the email on to other people. The first time I got one of these — a few months ago — I didn’t see it as a chain letter; just a little way of people telling each other what they’re cooking. I sent a recipe to the person at the top of the list and dutifully forwarded the e-mail to 10 friends. I should have received a ton of recipes back. I got 2.

This time, I’m just going to refer people to this blog. After all, there are already several recipes — <BR>

<a href=”http://lizjohnson.lohudblogs.com/2006/08/28/fish-report-no-1-cm-in-pomona/” target=”_blank”> Papillotes of Sea Bass in Red Curry Sauce</a>

<a href=”http://lizjohnson.lohudblogs.com/2006/10/02/roasting-squash/ ” target=”_blank”> Grilled Acorn Squash with Pecan Butter</a>

— and there are bound to be plenty more in the future.

When I used to get chain letters as a child, I was the one who always broke them, even if they threatened bad luck would befall me the rest of my life. Same goes for these e-chains.

Oh, and I heard several other people have received these e-mails. Maybe they’re maknig the rounds. Have you received one?

Share.
