ladies night- a little scrapbooking

not just a little scrapbooking, a lot of scrapbooking actually. Friday night was scrapbooking night. Eight ladies joined in this time. I got a ton done and acquired a heap of nice paper. (thanks again Cristin!) I tried two new recipes:

lemony cooler (sour lemony cooler)
3 cups white grape juice
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c lemon juice
1 bottle (1 liter) club soda, chilled
ice
assorted fresh fruit, optional

Combine grape juice, sugar, lemon juice. Add club soda right before serving. serve over ice with a garnish of fruit.





I really liked this. When hubby tasted it, he asked "Are you going to serve this to people?" Later he explained that what he really meant was that it was sour. I like sour. I renamed it sour lemony cooler in full disclosure.

I also made shrimp toast cups: (I made a half batch)



24 slices of white bread
1 cup butter- melted
2 packages 8 oz cream cheese
1/2 mayo
3 T sour cream
3 T prepared horseradish
3 cans (6 oz) small shrimp
green onions- diced (I didn't add these)

cut crust off bread, flatten with a rolling pin, cut into four pieces. Dip pieces of bread in butter. Place in mini muffin pan cups and bake 325 degrees for 14 ish minutes. cool on wire pan.

In a large bowl, mix the cream cheese, mayo, sour cream, horseradish. just before serving, add shrimp and onions. Spoon into cups. makes 8 dozen.

The shrimp toast sounds yummy! I guess you can't go wrong with something dipped in butter!

Thanks for showing the food at the scarpbooking party. I may need more sugar in the drink but it is sure pretty. I plan to trip the shrimp recipe but of course I will add the green onion. Making zuccini muffins and bread today. gma
