My empty plate after the lovely fruity dessert that Karen brought.
Pamela was working on these cute little nugget tag holders...aren't they adorable. She got the pattern from split coast (I think....)
Kelley brought me this cute little card she made...i just love the turtle on it's back, I certainly have days like that too!
Pamela brought me this little basket that she made filled with some beautiful french soaps. Love them, and it looks so cute in the bathroom next to the wire bird I got at target last week.
Now, on to the food. I cooked all morning in a quiet house and at my own pace...it was great! This is an avocado brushetta spread....it was awesome. the recipe came from Vegetarian Times. I should have toasted the bread but ran out of time, it wasn't an issue though. Mu husband came home from his fishing trip and polished the rest off and didn't complain about the untoasted bread either...so I guess it was ok.
Red pepper hummus....not as good as I wanted it to be but it was ok. Kind of a made up recipe.
The counter with some of the food....
Mushroom tartletts with a polenta crust, my own creation. They looked a lot better, and tasted even better than this picture shows.
And the best part of all...these little ricotta/blackberry tarts. Oh they were so good, and worthy of the stomach ache they gave me!
