Scrapping Optional Girl's Weekend (part 1)
Friday morning, Jayne and I awoke to Baked Apple Pancakes with caramel sauce. What a way to kick start any day! Teri arrived late afternoon right before Barb who was driving up from Ft. Myers. E cooked us brats and burgers on the grill for supper and his 'world famous' Italian baked beans but the biggest hit was his potato salad that had Teri and Jayne in a "it's mine" tussles! lol
The Ft. Lauderdale girls, Lauri and Karen, arrived around 9 after a few detours on their way (Hobby Lobby, Griffins, etc). They brought me the most beautiful 2 doz. roses. I'll post a pic of those later and of the glass wind chime from Mama Jayne!
We got everyone situated for the night and chatted a good portion of the night away. Teri claimed a slice of the dining room as her 'boudoir' as she called it. Here she is getting ready for our day on Sat. morning.
As an aside here: I think the girls and E need to do a Scrapping Optional Girls' Weekend Cook book as some of the treats that everyone whipped up are beyond description on the Yummy Scale. For expample: Mama Jayne's kalua fruit dip and her killer margaritas, Lauri's salsa, Linda's cake, and E's Italian beans and his potato salad. I shall contribute the 4 ft. sandwich recipe which goes something like this. Go to Publix deli, order sandwich, bring home and have someone else cut it since I am not allowed to play with sharp objects!
Many thanks to all of you wonderful women for your contributions to this weekend.
Part 2 and 3 to follow.
