Strawberries, Mandarin Oranges, mixed salad greens and green or red onions. The almonds are candied by stirring 1/2 cup of sugar over medium heat and adding 1 cup of slivered almonds when the sugar starts to melt. Keep stirring until sugar is melted and almonds are golden.
The salad dressing is:
2 tbl of sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 ts. Tabasco sauce
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup Balsamic Vinegar

I added another slide show t catch you up on some of the things I saw at the show. I saw a lot of acrylic, die cut paper, boy, Halloween & Christmas lines.
Halloween - purple, lots of purple, die cut paper (think spider web paper anyone?), acrylic overlays & glitter!
Christmas - Lot's of die cut paper (beautiful snowflakes and more), glitter, traditional and non, and in between.
Boy collections - Speed Racer and more.
Basic Grey! 5 new collections, not all shipping at once this time! So you can spread the damage a little. We got a very, very early number!!! :) (Thanks AC!) All beautiful and something for everyone.
Birds & Owls & Butterflies - still everywhere but still creative and beautiful.
Maya Rd. - Outdid themselves. Incredible new chipboard and the heaviest acrylic books I've seen yet!
K&Company - Fans you will be very happy as it starts shipping, Halloween, Christmas, Amy Butler (my personal new favorite - wait till you see the new die-cuts), Thanksgiving, new additions to Ancestry ...Oh and Glitter Paper!
Pink Paislee - Love it! Halloween is subtle so you can use it for anything you want and we have a design team member coming to teach!
October Afternoon - 4 new lines and new stamps - another one of my favorites.
Cosmo Cricket - Another fun and "campy" line. Should already be on its way!
I almost forgot to mention, we did order adoption, twins, school (of course), EMT, Nursing, Fire Dept. as well as many others. These were some special requests. I will follow up with more details later.
I have to finish packing and load up the van to head home.
By the way, the Portillo's pics are for Kris, he'll know why.
I have a freebie for a lucky winner from anyone of the posts this past Thur through Monday night - so post away!
See you soon!
