Anatomy of a Dinner Party: a day in the life of a hospitalityaholic

In The Pink – Giveaway!

Written by Patti on July 20th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

I love the color pink. It is the epitome of being a girl. It is also the official color associated with Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Del Webb, the nation’s leading active adult community builder, has partnered with KitchenAid®, to sponsor Cooks for the Cure events to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure ®.

From July 15- 24, 45 Del Webb communities across the nation will be hosting the events. They are free, open to the public and will feature:

· Cooking demonstrations

· Food samplings

· Live entertainment

· Silent auctions

· Raffles, prizes and more

Attendees are invited to come eat, enjoy the Del Webb lifestyle and enter to win KitchenAid® small appliances. Those interested in attending can find a community nearby and RSVP on Del Webb’s website.

In addition to the public events hosted by Del Webb communities, many Del Webb residents are also hosting private dinner parties to benefit the cause. Proceeds go toward Susan G. Komen for the Cure ® for breast cancer research.

Del Webb is sponsoring Cooks for the Cure as part of the event’s 10th anniversary, which challenges America to host 1,000 dinner parties to raise money for breast cancer research and community outreach programs. The annual event has raised nearly $8 million since 2001 for Susan G. Komen for the Cure ®.

How adorable is this pink Kitchenaid mixer? I love it!

What is your favorite pink recipe? It could be anything pink. Just name it. The lovely folks from Kitchenaid are giving me a pink hand mixer to give to the winner of the pink food challenge.

So leave a comment and cross your fingers! And for goodness sakes, lets find that cure! I will announce the winner on July 24.

xoxo, Patti

    Cold beet soup.

    Perfect for summer and the prettiest color of pink

    If you don’t feel like roasting beets, you can just combine canned beets, low fat sour cream, dill, some cider vinegar and s&p. Garnish with some more dill and green onions.
