Do you know someone who loves to golf and would enjoy a day of being pampered AND hitting golf balls all day??? This is an upcoming fund raiser for the new Children's Pavilion at CHKD in Norfolk. I have more information about this event ~ let me know if you, or someone you know, might be interested. 100 holes in a single day = bragging rights for sure!
Tuesday night's stamp club was loads of fun ~ that's yummy fun. To celebrate the holidays everyone brought a dish to share. Melissa (pictured in the right hand corner) brought Sausage-Pancake Muffins ~
Everyone thought that they were delicious and Melissa generously shared her recipe ~ you can print it out ~
I served Persimmon Bread at my stamp club this morning and several friends asked for the recipe so I thought I would add it here. This recipe makes 2 loaves of a moist tasty bread.
3 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups sugar
1 cup melted unsalted butter cooled to room temperature
4 large eggs, at room temperature, lightly beaten
2/3 cup Cognac or bourbon whiskey
2 cups persimmon puree (4 squishy-soft persimmons)
2 cups walnuts or pecans, chopped
2 cups raisins
1 Butter 2 loaf pans. Line the bottoms with parchment paper
2 Preheat oven to 350 degrees
3 Sift the first 5 dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl
4 Make a well in the center then stir in the butter, eggs, liquor, persimmon puree, nuts, raisins
5 Bake 1 hour or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean
Will keep for about a week, well-wrapped at room temperature. The Persimmon Breads tkae well to being frozen, too. More Persimmon recipes on my Pinterest site ~ category YUMMMM!
I posted a picture of 'my' stamp set on the 12th ~ SEASIDE BAY. It is included in the next mini catalog (coming to you in December) and available to order in January. And, it is part of a collection of products (thank you Stampin' Up!). I have the stamp set but none of the other products and can't order until December 1 (top of my list for sure). This picture was taken by my team member, Kathy Winter, who attended OnStage in Pennsylvania and shows the dies, ribbon and a little of the DSP in the collection. I have found several other pictures online and will share with you soon. In the meantime, my apologies for no recent posts ~ two events coincided ~ the arrival of my sister, Sarah, recovering from knee replacement surgery on Wednesday last week and a holiday event to raise money for CHKD on Sunday. The third event will be Thanksgiving and all my family will be arriving soon. I have a feeling that I will post again on Friday this week. So, have a wonderful Thanksgiving ~ relax and make a Gratitude List ~ it's a blessing. Hugs.
I thought I would introduce you to my stamp set, SEASIDE BAY. Creation of the set was part of the ongoing event celebrating ONE MILLION in career sales. It is on display now in the OnStage Pittsburgh demonstrator event and will be in the Jan/April 2023 mini catalog.
