Busy Week!

It all started with our RazzMaTazz Tupperware Holiday Cooking School on Monday night.  About three times a year, our sales organization presents a cooking school as a thank you to our hosts, customers & the public. 

We have idea tables (gift ideas, new recipes, etc.) and tasting stations before the program begins.  Then, after everyone has arrived & is registered, we proceed with demos for several recipes.

I prepared most of the food for tasting and did the main cooking demo.  I've added a few photos of the evening.  I don't have a photo of my demo, but it was recorded and will turn up on YouTube, eventually.  I'll let you know when it does, if you care to see it. :) 

I taught Investment Cooking, making Stuffed Bell Peppers from our Basic Beef Freezer Mix.  The idea of investment cooking is to "invest" a few extra $$ grocery shopping, and a few hours on a weekend to prepare a basic beef or chicken freezer mix, which provides 6-8 meals during the month.

Yesterday, I hosted a Tea for our Women's Small Group Bible Study Leaders.  I baked and prepared for two days.  The menu: Cucumber & Egg Salad Sandwiches, Ham & Cheese Hasty Hots, Cinnamon-Pecan Scones, Fruit Salad and Fruitcake. Teas served: Darjeeling, Milk Oolong & Tropical Savannah.  (All can be purchased HERE, at my friend Amy's website.)
