I've noticed a few more folks coming on board, so I will let you know right away that the links to my elements expire in about a weeks time. If you're visiting for the first time and see something in the archives you might like, just email me and I will send you the element of your choice. Also, if you find the wording in my blog too small, then on your internet browser toolbar (top) simply choose VIEW, TEXT SIZE and then LARGER or LARGEST. I like the uncluttered look of smaller typing and this way we will both be happy, no?
I've had a MOST INTERESTING SUNDAY, but I will share it with you tomorrow, for now...
This egg element is especially made for my friend Valerie, from Quebec, who has taken up my 'MAKE DO WITH WHAT YOU HAVE' not-to-grocery-shop challenge I've got going on. If you're not familiar with it you better get back in the archives a week ago to come up to speed. Valerie has been labouring thru the challenge...and has found her problem has been a lack of eggs. Well, here's your egg Sweetie, ha ha! Really, in a pinch, you may substitute a tablespoon or two of (real) mayonnaise for an egg in some cases. I would love to hear your substitutes! The following is from an email I recieved from Valerie, and a recipe as well.
About the "refraining from grocery shopping' challenge" : I actually had to count my EGGS. I had 9 of them. Yep! Gabrielle asked me to make her some crêpes this morning. Needed 3 of them. I new I had to bake some brownies for my visitors today. 2 more eggs. And I had use 4 yesterday for my 2 loafs of banana bread.

That means that I have no more EGGS for the rest og the week because my challenge started yesterday!

Friday menu - We has grilled sausages and carrots in foil and some sort of potato pancakes last night.
Saturday morning - crêpes and yogurt
Saturday lunch - Vegetable soup, cheese and bread - chocolate cookies
Saturday dinner (having my Aunt and cousins with us) - Green salad, spaghetti, bread, brownies, probably some red wine.

Will see out it goes from there. Will have to deal with the EGG thing!
