I put food in the feeders fore my little birds but the big birds came and ate most...
I made my own Garam Masala for my Chick Pea Masala ...out of necessity comes invention...well not invention here but inspiration.
Yup, that's just the way it is around here these days. No matter how you try to be proactive or prepared sometimes it just doesn't matter and things still go awry.
Rarely do I ever host a party and not prepare all the food however, this time I wanted to sit back and enjoy and had it catered. Figuring it would be less stressful. And you ask "Did it work and was it less stressful?" Well I tell you a big fat NOPE! As I stated I locked myself out of the house an hour before the party while bringing the food in and completely stressed out, but then started to laugh. Hey at least nothing was cooking in the oven and
Two dozen roses for $24.00 after they were $50.00 the day before....completely ludicrous ...but that's just the way it is...
More snow on St..Patrick's day will this winter never end, but I am sure I will be screaming when its hot and humid ...but that's just the way I am!!
Birds trying to eat my dogs and wild turkeys invading my feeders...That's just the way nature is!!
Things that did not go awry...
The Shamrock garland was fun ...I just picked a green fabric and a complementary yellow one for the circles, fused onto a fusible foundation connected it with some velvet ribbon form Anthropolgie that I got on sale after Christmas.
The party was a huge success! I made two new recipes quick easy and delicious and will share them on the next post! A dreamy lemon pie that turned into squares and a one bowl pineapple sheet cake. All I can say is YUM!!
The chocolate mug cakes are from King Arthur flour ...make sure you use the coco they suggest. I used dutch chocolate and it wasn't sweet enough. Next time I will increase the sugar. Delicious the were. The Black Forest cupcakes try it you'll love them trust me and...That's just the way it is!
Next week I have recipes to share and a free crochet pattern for you!
PS... I now use any product that Shakira endorses...she is perfection!
