Show and Tell & Food for Thought!
Posted by denise on Monday, October 3rd, 2011
Expect the unexpected at show and tell night at retreat! A good glass of homemade wine..oh, yeah! Stomach cramps from laughing for sure! Some pictures I just can't show or the girls might not let me bring the camera to show and tell again.
Here is one of my favorites... Jane's BUG quilt as I call it. Didn't it turn out awesome and by the way Jane your border print finished it off nicely. I believe this pattern is from the book Scrap Basket Surprises.
Next we have a Shining Star for Fall!
So many projects and such a great time, just check out the design wall full UFO's...
Pretty little bows? Ladies, what a fun night of laughs and the program was delightful. Oh, yes the fabric bows had a purpose.
Only one person had a red bow and won an awesome bundle of fat quarters. Ginny, can't wait till next year to see what you put together! So great that everyone has a sense of humor and can enjoy a weekend away. Thanks ladies for being and awesome group to host!!!
Food for Thought
We never have enough food over the four days we spend in De Soto, who are we kidding. There are trusty favorites and I promised I would post them to share with everyone. Enjoy!
Marinated Ham Sandwiches-these are better than the name sounds and they ask for them each year. Trust me they are awesome and once you make them your family or guests will know why. Perfect for those upcoming football parties. I have attached the link below.
Crock Pot Cheesy Potatoes-gotta love it when I can find the same recipes on line and don't have to type it all out.
Meatballs: 3 lbs ground beef, 1 (12oz) can evaporated milk, 1 c. oatmeal, 1 c. cracker crumbs, 1/2 tsp. pepper, 2 eggs, 1/2 c. chopped onion, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, 2 tsp salt, 2 tsp chili powder
Sauce: 2 c. catsup, 1 c. brown sugar, 1/2 tsp liquid smoke or to taste, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 c. chopped onion
To make meatballs, combine all ingredients (mixture will be soft) and shape into walnut-size balls. Place meatballs in a single layer on wax paper-lined cookie sheet; freeze until solid. Store frozen meatballs in freezer bags until ready to cook.
To make sauce, combine all ingredients and stir until sugar is dissolved. Lightly grease 9x13x2 inch baking pan, now add frozen meatballs. Pour on sauce. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until done. Be sure not to omit the liquid smoke as that flavors the meatballs.
Overnight Pecan French Bread
1" slices French Bread, 1 stick butter-melted, 1 c. brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, 5 eggs, 1 1/2 c. milk, 1 1/4 tsp salt, 1 tsp vanilla, chopped pecans.
In 9x13 pan melt the butter. Add sugar & cinnamon, stir. Sprinkle on pecans. Top with the bread slices. Depends on the size of the slices, usually 6-8 slices. Mix remaining ingredients. Pour over the bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Preheat oven to 350 and bake for 30-40 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes and enjoy!
Take care and would love to hear your reviews on the food for thought!
