Monday night round up

Good evening

I have a real mixed bag of an update to share tonight

First up is this weeks class card, I had been asked by a few class members to repeat this, as the only other one I have created like this in class was a christmas version, so I fashioned this one with a view to making it suitable for all manner of occasions ( bearing in mind that Mothers day is also just around the corner)

On friday we had a very special little guest in the shop and she was a little angel all afternoon, Carine April Foster came to visit, she brought along her lovely mummy Nicki too, thanks girls you made my day

On Saturday we held our Stampin' Up demo and make and take day, there are many more photos and details of the day HERE on the shop blog

Thankyou so much to Linda for all her hard work and inspiration and especially her patience, it was a busy day and Linda made sure everyone got make to make what they wanted

AJ got more happy mail this week in the shape of another massive hamper of gluten free goodies, this time from Glutafin

After Saturdays super busy make and take day I treat the boys to homemade ribs and pizza, the ribs were bought from the local butcher (Birketts) and the very kindly ( if a little cheeky) butcher kindly offered to seal them in bags with my own gluten free sauce

I dropped the sauce into the butchers in the morning and he added the ribs and vacuum sealed them for me to boil and then roast at home and they were delish !!!

If anyone is interested in the gluten free recipe for the sauce, this is how I made it
1 full bottle of Heinz classic BBQ sauce
Bunch of spring onions
Half a dozen small chopped pickled red chilli peppers (Pickled in spirit vinegar not malt)
4 cloves garlic

The ribs are marinated in the sauce and then brushed with it during roasting to maintain their succulence

The pizza was easy, we used the gluten free pizza bases from Juvela, adding homemade garlic butter and lashing of grated cheese

Finally I will leave you with a photo of the flowers Linda and Paul bought me - aren't they gorgeous and happy looking ! and not orange (thankyou Paul lol)

What a wonderful week, very full and busy but one with lots of little happy happenings

Love and happy wishes
