With the return of American Girl's Samantha to their historical, I mean Beforever, line up,  I felt it befitting that I welcome her back warmly with a few foods inspired both from the pages of her books and from her era.

I did not want to leave the modern dolls hungry, so for them I have whipped up a menu list of foods perfect for a day's camping excursion.  

Items, as always, are listed in my Etsy shop on a first come first served basis, at 12:00 noon EST on the 15th of each month.

Looking ahead to the months of September and beyond...

Late in August American Girl is rereleasing from their archives one of the dolls that started it all for them: Samantha Parkington.  She's getting pampered with several new dresses, a new bike and other possible goodies yet to be revealed.   I'm personally excited to see what American Girl has in store for her and for the other dolls that are getting makeovers as well.   

I will be celebrating Samantha's homecoming too, offering some turn of the century foods for September to help welcome her back.  Each month I hope to continue the theme, spotlighting one historical doll and offering a few foods for her from her era and her story. Don't worry- there will still be plenty of foods on the menu month to month for the modern girls.


And just for another small addendum relating to my previous post:

Seems my 13 yr old is at it again...

Addy is looking totally fabulous and thoroughly enjoying the gadgets and the finery of the 21st century.
