Summer 2007
Welcome to Haute Dish

Welcome to the historic Summer 2007 edition of Haute Dish. We made and are making history with this issue. We hope you like our selections as much as we do.

We received a record smashing 189 submissions--our previous record was 88. And for the first time, we're providing a PDF version of our little magazine for those of you who prefer to hold your reading material in your hands. And for those who want to take Haute Dish on vacation. And for our esteemed library and the Minnesota Historical Society who want to keep copies of our publication in perpetuity.

Oh, and we've redesigned our website. Did you notice? When Metro student and web designer Matthew Bates showed me this design as an option, I knew right away it would be our next website design.

Most of us squeeze study time between putting our kids to bed and putting ourselves to bed. Or we write during down-time at an overnight job. Or we do homework on the bus to and from school. And some of our projects, papers and productions are coffee-stained, frayed around the edges, and taped together.

And despite our time crunched lives, we manage to excel beyond even our own expectations.

Hopefully, this edition will shine with Metropolitan State University beauty and brilliance as well. I think so anyway.

So come on up to our porch and sit for a spell. We won't bite. I can't make any promises about Roberta, though.
