Way Too busy Weekend!!!

Have our Dinner for Eight dinner at our home tonight.  Going the easy route and grilling up Chicken.  Started marinating it last night, just put it in the oven to pre-cook.  Steven will grill it up after that, will wrap it up and keep it warm in the oven.  As hostess, we're only responsible for the Main course, but we always seem to be short I made up a 3 cheese dip....will see how it is. 

Here's some card pictures.  First one is the project we did for Stamper's 10 this month. 
This was the technique card, and the technique was, Distressed Acrylic.  Really great look, especially if you are going for that Chabby Chiche look.  You paint a really thin layer of Acrylic paint onto your cardstock and let dry.  Then run it thru one of the embossing folder in your Big Shot.  Sand down a bit with the sanding block.  Then sponge a contrasting ink, and wipe with a damp paper towel. 
These were 2 cards that we did as project cards for our Stamp get together at my home earlier this month. 

Getting behind in recipes....was cleaning out the fridge last week....had a few odd vegetables I wanted to get used decided to roast them up. 
Vegetable Roast
2 cups broccoli florets
1 lg. red bell pepper cut into 1-in. squares
1 cup turnip, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/c cup onion, diced
1 Tbl. balsamic vinegar
2 tsp. olive oil
1/2 cup chicken broth
4 sprigs fresh thyme
1/4 tsp. salt
pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 425.  In a shallow, heavy roasting pan, combine vegetables.  Whisk vinegar and oil, and pour over vegetables, tossing to coat.  Pour chicken broth around vegetables.  Add thyme.  Roast for about 30 min.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Enjoy!...Bon Apetite!!!
