Weekend Fun

My Saturday was a lot of fun. I went to our local rec. center and took a bunch of classes. Most were free, and if they weren’t free it was a minimal charge.
 
The first class was all about making Trifles. She made up 5 different kinds, "Joy’s Prize Winning Trifle", "Chocolate Trifle," "Three Berry Lemon Trifle," "Ultimate Chocolate Trifle," and "Carmel Apple Trifle." We got to taste them all! YUM!
 
Then it was a class on making bath salts. I made 3 different scents, sweet orange, vanilla lemon, and peppermint.
 
I snuck into a class that I hadn’t signed up for. It was on all kinds of different soups, and they had them to taste test. Some were really good! All the printed recipes were gone, but, I knew several of the ladies in there, and I will soon be getting copies of those.
 
My 4th class was a gift giving idea class. Have you seen where the ingredients are all layered in a quart canning jar, and has a pretty top tied with a ribbon, and has a recipe attached so they know how to make it.
She had 3 different recipes, Granola Spice Muffins, Lemon Raisin Quick Bread, and (I did this one) Rocky Road Brownies.
 
Just so you know, that I wasn’t just eating all day, I did go to a serious class.
 
It was on being prepared for disasters.
We ended up with hand outs on making your own, Car Emergency Kit, A Personal Emergency Kit (foods, water, etc. for if you don’t have access to electricity or water for 3 days)
A list for making your own First Aid Kit and for those who had babies, a list to make a Personal Emergency Kit for an Infant.
 
If you are interested in any of the recipes or emergency lists, just ‘Holler" at me, OK?
 
I had a great time! What more could I ask?

    YUM!  What a great way to spend a Sunday.  Everything sounds delicious, especially the sweet orange bath salts and the rocky road brownies!
    Apparently, Southern California is on fire due to the Santa Ana winds and scorching heat.  Those emergency kits would come in handy out here.  Thankfully we\’re not in an evac zone-whew!

    Holy Moly Great Queen of Scotch!  Sounds like you had quite the busy Saturday.  Sounds like the perfect date to me.  I am assuming you just simply forgot to send me an invite??!!  Huh?  Huh?  You bet I am interested in those trifles.  Since I am not good at the \’baking\’ thing… how\’s about I just send you my complete mailing address.  Hint!  Hint!  Yes?  How much more blunt could I be…. bwahahaha!
     
    Here\’s hoping that all is well with you.  Sorry that I have not been by your space in a while.  Just know that I have been thinking of you and really appreciate your comments and visits to my space.  KUDOS to you sweetie!

    Now that sounds like a lot of fun. Yeah, I didn\’t think snails were attractive creations either. I\’m not even sure why I bought it, but I do admit it makes the aquarium more interesting. My twins like to play "where is the snail hiding" until they see it\’s face sucking on the glass. Your space is all decked out for ghouls and creepy crawlies so Happy Halloween!!!Have a fantastic week!!!

    It i interesting but living in a big city finds that no one tricks and treats here.  I guess the parents are too worried to let their kids out.
