I am feeling so much better today, hardly ANY cold symptoms anymore so I celebrated by doing a little baking. I found this recipe on FB one day, it just popped up and I thought not only did it sound good but it gave me the
excuse reason to try Nutella. I have been skeptical about the product but I figured if was paired with marshmallow and pastry, it couldn't be all bad, eh? Go here if you want the recipe, it was extremely easy to make. I did do one thing different, the pastry sheets were a tad sticky trying to move them around on the baking sheet so I sprinkled sugar under them and that helped a lot. And if anyone knows how to spread Nutella better then please let me know, it doesn't spread easily. As you can also see I am a little chicken/rooster happy in my kitchen. Even the red cups you see there come from a pattern called Red Rooster ( made by Metlox and only available from Ebay, they were made around the 1950's...lol..needless to say I have almost entire collection and had to go cold turkey from
And just to show you how nuts I am, this rooster plate is from a much smaller collection that I picked up when shopping one day at Harry and Davids. So when I want to make myself feel special I pull these out to use...guess I feel real special cause I use them almost every day! lol I actually use to have them hanging on the wall in my kitchen as a display but since I've had to downsize they have moved from the wall to the cupboard, and I am OK with that too! :)
And over at Cards TV, Mary is having a challenge to make a masculine card. And since my brother will be celebrating his birthday in March I decided to make his card. First I was inspired to make a shaped card, the golf cart. Then that expanded to the idea of balloons instead of a golf bag on the back of the cart and then I did something, I've never done before. I was trying to think of a background for the inside part of the cart, and was going through in my head: of the usual ideas, clouds, sky...etc. and went through my sports stash and found a magazine page that I had torn out of a golf course...perfect!
Especially since he is an older man, I didn't want it too look too cutesy so I thought the actual picture of a golf course would be awesome. I'm also going to write inside the card that if he can guess the actual course then I'll buy him dinner. He's such a smarty pants ( big brother, can you tell ?) that he probably will guess it ( rolling eyes ) which is why I am not offering a bigger prize if he gets it right! lol Hopefully it will drive him bonkers trying to figure it out, lol ( little sister, can ya tell ) hee hee
