Clam Chowder in a Bread Bowl

The other day there was a Panera commercial with soup in a bread bowl and thought that would be nice for a Friday dinner during Lent. So I decided to make clam chowder, which I haven't made in a long time and thought it was about time to make it again. In the mean time I've been gathering recipes from two of my cookbooks, "Don't Panic--Dinner's in the Freezer" and "Don't Panic--More Dinner's in the Freezer" and one of the recipes that was on my list to make was Clam Chowder. This isn't that much different from any other clam chowder recipe, but since it was geared for freezer meals, it was a good choice. It was very easy to make, but rich! Yes, there was a lot left over, so I had plenty to freeze.

Personally, I think the sourdough bread bowl is the best part. But that's just me, lol!

Hello, Spring!

Here it is the middle of April and I have no idea where the time has gone! We have a major remodeling project, that I can't wait until it's done! Also I'm working more hours at work until we can get another person, so I'm the sub for now. But yes I've made quite a few cards that I want to blog about but my time is limited. So I apologize for this brief post.

This stamp is from the 2014 Occasions Catalog, Vivid Vases. I love it and couldn't wait to color with the Stampin' Write markers. I stamped with StazOn ink on Whisper White cardstock. I used Pistachio Pudding cardstock for the card base and the Scallop Edge Border punch and added Large Pearl Basic Jewels. A very simple and quick card to make.

Have a Happy Easter and I will be back tomorrow to share a couple of last minute Easter cards.

Thank you for stopping by.

Hello, I'm Back

and no longer a Stampin' UP! demonstrator. It's a good thing, as much as I like sharing papercrafting and products, I found it hard ...
