So today was the first round of Simply Scored Scoring Tool (SSST) class and I think the girls loved all their projects, tomorrow is another round. In fact I have had a few people that could not make the class ask if I would repeat it, and I might have a day in November. Let me know if you live in Arizona and are interested. You would get your own SSST at class and make the three projects I have shown on my blog (the box, the Christmas Tag/Ornament and the Gatefold card).
I wanted to add a pennant banner using My Digital Studio to my antique window display and my sweet friend Heather Summers came to my rescue. (Thank you! Heather! Mwah!) This is totally cased from her, all I did was print it, cut it out, glue it to some Very Vanilla cardstock that I cut out with the Perfect Pennants die and add the Tastefully Trim Die to the edge, since I suck at math, (I really do) I printed the first set thinking I was making it the right size, but after adding the extra layers…well it was big enough to put on my red shelf.
But I still wanted one for my window display, so I made it smaller and did not add any layers (I did add some of the black rhinestones we sold last year) I added some charcoal distressing ink on the edges, Heather's recommendation – I love you girl!! (I am so happy we now sell the re-inkers for my distressing kit…me a happy girl), I hot glued them to some basic black taffeta, I hot glued the little mini clothespins to the window frame, clipped it up and Voila'
I need to make one for each season, don't you think?
The other day I got my little sister Courtney's hamburger patty recipe and I had to try it. Everybody raves about them and she made them for her rehearsal party, but my other little sister Jax and I left before they were done…we are older and couldn't keep up with them younguns….ha!
Courtney got the recipe from Eat, Shrink & Be Merry by two St. Thomas, Ontario women.
They were really tender and soft and you hardly had to even chew them. They did fall all apart and Court says she uses a press, but she didn't tell me that before I tried them. I also wondered if it would taste good made into meatloaf.
Here it is anyway.
Cowabunga Beef Burgers
1 1/4 lbs extra lean ground beef
3/4 cup fresh whole wheat bread crumbs or 1/3 cup dry unseasoned bread crumbs
3 tbsp. hickory flavored bbq sauce
2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley or 1 tsp. dried parsley
2 tsp. prepared horseradish
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 tsp. salt and freshly ground black pepper
extra bbq sauce for basting burgers (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix gently using your hands. For juicier burgers try to handle the meat as little as possible. Shape meat into 4 large patties, and 1" thick. ( I made more than 4 patties, cause they seemed too big for me)
Cook them fully on the bbq or in a skillet.
Let me know what you think.
You know how I love ketchup chips, in fact I have dear sweet Canadian demonstrators, Cara, Julie, Jenn to name a few that even bring me ketchup chips from Canada to convention. So I was excited to see these but they were not as good, they were close, but just not quite the same…I mean I still almost ate the whole bag…but I didn't enjoy them as much as my Canadian ones.
Well this old gal is gonna sign off and hit the hay so I can be bright eyed and bushy tailed for class in the morning.
Have a blessed Sunday and thanks so much for stopping in.
