England and Spain Round-up & September Destination -- Thailand

Welcome to our England and Spain Round-up! England was our July destination and Spain was our August destination. I hope everyone had a wonderful summer and are ready for some cooler (well, for most of us) fall weather. Let's get started with some delicious food!

England Round-up...

First up we have Corina at Searching for Spice with our first rendition of Toad in the Hole, a traditional British dish of sausages baked in Yorkshire pudding batter, looks very comforting!


Next up at Unchained Kitchen is CJW with CJW with Beef & Turnip Pasties, be sure to check out her delicious pasties and funny story about kidney pie :)


Here we have another version of the traditional Toad in the Hole, shared by Peggy at Pantry Revisited, doesn't that look yummy? What a great photo!


Aren't these crumpets just perfect?  They were made by Margaret at Tea and Scones, who also made a full afternoon tea, including crumpets, Scotch eggs, cucumber sandwiches, and banana tea loaf, all of which look amazing! Thank you, Margaret, for suggesting England!


Janet at the taste space has treated us with Cauliflower, Spinach, and Chickpea Balti; reminding us of the diverse cuisine of England, looks like a delicious dinner to me!


That concludes our England round-up, what a selection!  Everything looks wonderful! Now on to our August destination: Spain, here we go...

A bright and beautiful Mango Gazpacho from Janet at the taste space is our first entry for destination Spain, looks like summer in a bowl, yum!


Margaret at Tea and Scones is our second traveler for destination Spain and she shares with us two delicious Spanish dishes, Buñuelos de Cordoba, pictured above, are delicate fritters from southwestern Spain, yum!  Also check her site for a traditional Spanish omelette, Tortilla de Patatas, that looks just perfect.

Only two travelers for Spain, looks like August was a busy month for everyone!  No worries, on to September :)   But before then, an extra post from Janet at the taste space, with her entry for destination Greece (back in May) -- a flavorful dish of Greek Baked Beans / Gigantes Plaki, looks great!

Thanks to everyone for cooking along! 

Our September destination will be Thailand, thanks to Janet for that suggestion!  Get ready to try something new and find a Thai dish to try, post it on your blog and leave a comment on this post with a link to your My Kitchen My World September destination Thailand post!  Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with :)

Take care,

What a wonderful round-up. I had a hard time thinking of British dishes, but there are so many!

Spanish cuisine is so yummy it is a shame everyone was busy.

Onto Thailand, though! :)
