The Queen’s Dish: An Invitation . . .


The first Queen’s Dish invite.

I love pretending to be a graphic designer.  My skills are all self taught and are nothing to brag about. In my dreams I’d know how to navigate in Adobe Illustrator and actually get paid to design, but instead, I just play around in a little desktop publishing program, makes things for this blog and my own personal use and call it good.

When my mom agreed to host The Queen’s Dish with me, I was pretty excited because it meant I’d get to design an invitation each month. Since each meeting of the Queen’s Dish has a theme, the invitations have been very fun to make. Here’s a little look-see at what I’ve done so far.


Six Ingredients or Less


High Tea to celebrate the Royal Wedding


Up Next: Citrus Recipes.

I’d invite you all if I could.  What recipe would you make for Citrus Night?  I’m torn between a citrus marinated, dry rubbed chicken with mango salsa or a wild rice salad with orange segments and orange vinaigrette.  YUM.

I know exactly what I'm going to make and it's going to use lemons. Fab invites DF.

All your invitations are delicious. I wish I could crash the par-tay.

I'd bring something tasty to wash all that good food down, something like this:

I'd have to bring some of this too. So yummy.

O.K. enough about food. My mouth is watering.

I'm imagining what I'd make and my thoughts are ending at -


I won't be there yet.

But it would involve limes for sure! I love me some limes.

I would make Chili Lime Chicken Mango Skewers from Our Best Bites. The Queen had them at my house last year and she pronounced them yummy.
