Dish on Dinner with Olive Oil: Save the Date #DishonDinner


Fall is officially here and it’s time to pull out all the flavors we love this time of year and get started on some cozy fall cooking. I’m super excited to be partnering again with the International Olive Council’s Add Some Life  for our first-ever olive oil themed Twitter recipe contest called #DishOnDinner.

    Sounds wonderful. I go through a lot of olive oil and just recently our Italian neighbors moved in and they bring their own olive oil from Italy, they have olive tree and make the oil themselves. It is quite a treat.

    How fun! I’ll be marking this on my calendar.
    Almost everything I cook begins with olive oil.

    I am sorry but I do not know what hashtag dish on dinner is

    • TidyMom replied on October 8th, 2012 at 4:30 pm

      You only need to use a hashtag if you are going to share on twitter – if you want to share a recipe in the post comments, you don’t need the hashtag
