LADIES SPRING FLING
Today our church held a Ladies Spring Fling and it was so much fun. You could choose from four workshops and I chose "Useless to Useful" and Jessica on the left was our instructor and one of our Pastor's daughter was her helper. She was showing us how to make a reusable grocery bag out of an old tee shirt. Very clever with NO sewing.
Using items like soup cans, coffee cans, cat food cans to create all kinds of useful items for your desk or kitchen. Also the many ways you can made something useful from toilet and paper towel rolls, crayons, and little tin mint boxes. I'm NOT a craft person, but really got some good ideas.
The second work shop I attended was right up my alley! Debbie and her helper showed us how to make five easy appetizers. Three cold and two hot. This one was Tex-Mex Won Tons. Yummy!!
When she was finished we got to sample all of them. A Mango Salsa, Bacon wrapped water chestnuts..(so delicious), Tortilla Roll Ups and Ham and green onion roll ups. They were all wonderful and easy. I'm going to do them for my cooking class in June here at the Villa.
I didn't get a picture, but after the workshops and lunch, we had an excellent speaker, Cindy Lopez who share how to have a heart of joy and how to make a home of joy. Very inspirational. A great day with a great group of ladies. I love our church.
PS ~ if you are interested in any of the recipes, let me know in your comment and I'll post them.
