Change in Monthly Stamping Night!!!

Hi Everyone,
This summer when I was planning out my Stampin' Up! events for the fall, I made a crucial error. I am committed to a monthly fund raising event at my daughters school on the third Wednesday of every month. So.... since that is when I was planning on holding my monthly card night, I have to move card night. Monthly card night will now be held on the third THURSDAY of the month. I have changed the dates on my SU! demonstrator site calendar as well.

As always, your first month attending monthly card night is FREE!!! Otherwise, the cost is $6.00 to cover the cost of supplies. Please bring your own favorite adhesive. For every guest you bring to card night, you will be entered to draw a prize from my prize bucket! Please reserve your spot at least 24 hours in advance so that I have enough paper prepared.

Pickled Nectarines!

This recipe was a Food Dare from Rachel Ray Magazine. They are terrific!! I've just been eating them straight out of the jar, but they would be awesome over a pork tenderloin! I used ripe nectarines this time, but I think I would try for a firmer nectarine for the next batch!

Nectarine Pickles
1 pound nectarines, sliced into wedges
1/2 cup white wine or white balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp Chinese 5 Spice
1/4 tsp Salt
1 whole cinnamon stick

Boil all ingredients except the nectarines in a medium saucepan. Place nectarines in a heatproof container and pour in hot mixtures. Let cool, cover and refrigerate. Chop to make a relish, wrap with thinly sliced smoked ham, or just pop'em in your mouth! Recipe from Rachel Ray Magazine, August 2011
