ZIPLOC OMELET - Great Idea (Non Toxic)

This is such a great idea that I just had to print it.  First, I know there is some flack about cooking in plastic being toxic.  So I went to FAQs and SC Johnson says completely SAFE because they do not use any of the cancer causing things like the BPA etc.  So please check Ziploc's FAQs if you have any questions, but this recipe idea was too good to pass up!

Especially good for when all your family is together.  The best part is that no one has to wait for their "special" omelet!  Have guests write their name on a Quart-Size Ziploc Freezer bag with a Sharpie.

Crack 2 eggs (large or extra large but not more than 2) into the bag and add about 1/4 c. milk (if desired), then shake to combine them.

Put out a variety of ingredients such as:  cheese, ham, onion, green pepper, green chilis, tomato, salza, etc.

Each guest adds prepared ingredients of choice to their bag and shakes.  Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up.  Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes (I did 15 because of altitude).  You can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot.  For more, make another pot of boiling water.

Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily.  Be prepared for awe!  Nice to serve with fresh fruit and coffee cake!  Everyone gets involved in the process and a great conversation piece!

Imagine having these ready the night before and putting the bag in boiling water while you get ready.  And in 15 minutes, voila!  You've got a nice omelet for a quick breakfast!

Cards for Baby Shower

One of my favorite sets is the Miracle stamp set because I think it is a joyful miracle that our God allows us to bring forth new life.  Even the angels in heaven are not given this blessed privilege.  So, I was VERY happy to have an occasion to use this stamp set.  Thanks to one young lady in our office who was having a baby boy (and whose was born a couple of days ago), this is the card that I created for our group to sign.  It was a 5x7 card (which gave us plenty of room to write all our well wishes).
Below is the inside of the card:
Back of card--just love those little "hand made for you..." stamps

Best wishes for a blessed day today!

Hunting Layout

Below you will find the layout from the September Scrapbook workshop using the Twitterpated paper.  I kept the FALL title, because in our family, FALL is synonymous with hunting.  These pictures were from a couple of years ago.  My granddaughter Hannah was 4 at the time and got to go out hunting with Ian, my son (her dad).  She is such a trooper!
The right page shows Hannah and her little sister Mikayla in the camos.  The other day, when I was putting this page together Hannah asked "Who's the little boy?"  I reminded Hannah that she too had a day when she didn't have much hair either.  LOL!  Anyway, everyone gets excited for hunting season!  And just to let you know, in our family, hunting is a necessity and not just for fun!

September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop Artwork

This is my submission for the Stamp of the Month Artwork.  What a fun set!  I used glitter on these flowers and the centers of the little sprays are our new sparkles.  This was a fun and easy card to make!  Below is the card laying flat.
The picture below shows the card standing up and slightly opened.  Colors used in this project are Indian Corn, Olive, Smokey Plum, and White Daisy inks.  The base of the card  is Indian Corn Blue and also in the color scheme is Bamboo.  I also used a Sizzix Die.
Below is the inside of the card.  The printed paper is from the Bella Level II Paper Kit.
To make this card, you start with the base of 4" x 12".  Score the card at 3.5" and 7".  Fold mountain folds on the scores and then bring the two folds together creating a valley fold between them (this actually is at 5.25" if you prefer to score and then crease).  Crease the valley fold.  Now, just decorate the inside.  Wasn't that easy? 
Now, to continue on your way on the blog hop, see the list below or click here to HOP on over to Cindie's blog.  Click the next person in the list after me (I've marked my site "You Are Here" in RED).
