pics from our Girl's Night Out

Since we were featuring Gooseberry cookbooks, I made some recipes from several of the books. I will even share one with you here. The Kielbasa Bites were a big hit and so simple. Just combine 1lb of sliced kielbasa, 1 c. apricot preserves, 1/2 c. maple syrup, 2 T. spple juice in a slow cooker. Cover, put on low and 4 hours later, some yummy treats.
Oops, don't know how to turn this pic. Took a couple of decorating ideas from the Gooseberry book. These are real pumpkins covered in glitter. I just brushed on white glue and sprinkled glitter. Didn't get a pic, but on a couple of other pumpkins, I just did the stems, one a bight green and the other purple. Just plain fun!

These are real pears. Just dip the bottom portion in water and then in colored sugar. They are so pretty. Also we carved out a space just big enought for a tealight in some articifal pumpkins. I just love Gooseberry- they have so many quick. easy ideas!

Some really cute bracelets that Amy did for her make and take projects. They are just precious. Thanks, Amy. Jamie and her daughter making their bracelets. Decisions, decisions.
Thanks everyone for coming. It was a fun evening but we couldn't do it without you. You gals are great!


  1. Looks like a lot of fun! I love the pumpkin idea (and what baby doesn't like playing in glitter!)

  2. Thanks Stina for popping by. Love your little pic. What a cutie!
