πŸŽ¨πŸ˜‹ Thursday Art and Dinner Date: Moon Phases!

Welcome my Friends, to Thursday's Art and Dinner Date! 😊😊

🎨For our 🎨 Art Date 🎨, today's optional prompt is Moon Phases! Please feel free to share any art you've created, we would love to see it! Did you know that Bugs Bunny was the man in the moon? This is a photo I took of the moon; I drew Bugs' face and added it as a layer to the photo in Photoshop. I also added the starry sky!

πŸ˜‹For our πŸ˜‹ Dinner Date πŸ˜‹,  I made an Italian Focaccia Bread with Onions! It was so good!

  1. You did a beautiful job of Bugs in the moon! The bread looks delicious with onions.

  2. Mmmmm, I love a nice piece of focaccia bread! Yours looks dee-lish!

  3. Your focaccia looks delicious, Rain! I love focaccia and sometimes bake it as well. I like to add rosemary to it and sprinkle some coarse salt on top. Thank you for hosting!

  4. Smiling at Bugs as the man in the moon - and drooling at the foccacia.

  5. I like your moon phase and the bread looks amazing!! Wish I could smell it. Thank you so much for hosting!


  6. I would like to taste your focaccia !

  7. Your bread looks all look good! Have a happy day, hugs, Valerie

  8. You're focaccia bread. Looks amazing!

  9. If your foccacia was round it would look a lot like the moon!

  10. Miriam made focaccia bread too this week and it is truly delicious. We will have it for dinner tonight with prosciutto and cheese, some olives, salad and a bottle of wine. Does it get any better? Not for me it doesn't!

  11. Oh my!
    Your bread looks delicious.
    I think all of your blogging buddies will be round to have some :)

    All the best Jan

  12. I didn't have time to put a post together, but I wanted to stop by Rain. Your focaccia looks very very yummy. I hope you're having a great week and have a great weekend. hugs-Erika

  13. Oooh... Your focaccia bread looks amazing. :)

  14. ...your Italian Focaccia Bread looks fabulous!

  15. We love Focaccia too, dear Rain. But I bake it rarely and without onions - sometimes with olives. Wish you a very good weekend. Thank you for hosting.

    Hugs by Heidrun

  16. Hello, Rain
    Beautiful moon image! your bread looks and sounds delicious. Take care, have a happy weekend.

  17. Hi, Rain! I love your Bugsy in the moon drawing. And your bread looks yummy! I hope all is going well with you. Terry asks me every few days how you are doing. Hugs to you!

  18. So, the man on the moon all along was Bugs Bunny ... who knew? What do you think Bugs thinks of being on the moon? And Focaccia Bread with onions ... yummm, I would love it warm with butter. I am a bread lover, but not a bread eater for the obvious reasons. I try to limit my bread intake to once or twice a week and that seems to work well for me. And, as I have mentioned before, I rarely bake because I eat what I bake and that doesn't bode well for the figure ... Don't know how you do it Rain, but all of you delicious food looks good on you. You must be blessed with a high metabolism :) So, I will warn you now ... I have a million petal pictures so my task will be to figure out which ones to use. See you next week :)

  19. Bread sure look yummy.
    Coffee is on and stay safe.

  20. I had planned to stop by, but Friday was not a good day in my world. I'm not whining, just explaining that my GOOD hand hurt, as did the rest of my body, in part to my inability to breathe due to the winds from the wild fires in Canada and in part from overworking at my friend Sally's house on Thursday when I brought in 200 lbs of cat litter she had ordered from Amazon. I do hope to join again, soon. I may have to wait until I can once again type with both hands.

  21. Oh thanks for the info dear Rain - I DID NOT know that Bugs Bunny was the man in the moon 😊! We really are never too old to learn. Your Italian Focaccia Bread with Onions looks extremely delicious!
    All the best 🌱🌿🌱, Traude

  22. that is some good looking focaccia!!!
