Two more lo's and Foodie Chat

Okay, a shameless plug for Tangie Baxter who is soon to launch her ATC Emporium within her shop, which will also be perfect for the amazing INCHIES shaking up the paper scrapping world. My first lo features an INCHIE on the star... they are 1" x 1" squares that folks decorate! Anyhow, check with Tangie's site on June 25th! That's the debut day!

While I'm shamelessly plugging, check out Christina Renee Designs who is featured at DST this month AND is giving away a freebie every single day. Part of her Ready, Set, Chase! designs are released each day. On Saturday, if you clicked on my blinkie at DST, you got the Fantasie Ornates, Windows. Boy was that fun for me to be able to do that!!! Anyway, hop on over and find the magic CT member to get the latest piece!

Dd came home from Hilton Head today. I'm glad. I missed her. We celebrated Father's Day after she got home and ds got off work. I made a Beef Wellington, Risotto and cherry cobbler for dessert. Appetizers were potatoe skins with blue cheese. Whew! Am I full. Anyway, can you tell I've been watching Hell's Kitchen with Gordon Ramsay.

I would like to know WTF is English mustard? That's what you are supposed to rub all over the beef tenderloin before you cook it in the shell. They don't sell it where I live that is for sure! Not a shocker, but never heard of it! BTW, beef wellington is delish. I used portabello mushrooms for the mushroom part. Yummo!

I have managed to master risotto. And it is really, really good. You just can't be in a hurry to make it.

And cherry cobbler. A whole stick of butter. Need I say more.

I do love cooking when I have time and watching Hell's Kitchen got me curious about risotto and beef wellington. Now both are added to my culinary skills.

So all that being said, I do believe dh had a nice father's day. He got two trees for our landscaping adventure: a pansy tree and a dogwood tree. Plus we got him a pair of Columbia shorts. I also took him for my "short" route of walking since he is wanting to lose some weight. I told him I would take him the long route another day. I think he thought the short one was the long one!

English Mustard is a milder mustard, thats what I used when I make Honey Mustard Ham at Christmas.

Beautiful layouts sweetie.
