Hay Hay It’s Donna Day #9 – The Roundup! February 2, 2007


Wow, folks. You really outdid yourself for this edition of Hay Hay It’s Donna Day – The Souffle Challenge. I stopped counting somewhere around 30! There are so many great entries, stories and recipes. I’m happy to report that most people faced the challenge with bravery…and came out on top! I also loved the photography for this edition of HHDD – you all weren’t afraid to get right in there and get close! It made so many of your recipes look so appetizing and delicious. Kudos to everyone!

So now for the hard part: the voting! I don’t envy everyone trying to decide between all of these great posts! Please send an email to runningwithtweezers@gmail.com with your winning entry by February 10th. That’s the day that votes will be tallied and a winner – and the host of Hay Hay It’s Donna Day #10 – will be announced.

maia Feb 4, 2007 06:02 pm

Beautiful! They all look amazing. What are the odds that 10% of the people would choose passion fruit for their souffles? Funny!
