Since my sister and neices left from their visit, I had Jillian stay a few more days...she celebrate her "real" birthday with us and then travelled home with her dad.
We cooked ziti, meatballs, sausage and peppers for 325 firemen. I wish I had pictures of that pot of sauce, but it was soo crazy trying to get everything ready and keep it hot/tasting good. Lets just say that my entire body was sore for two days...stirring a pot that big is hard work! Here are some stats on what we cooked:
- 105 lbs of sweet Italian sausage
- two cases of peppers
- two very large bags of onions
- 50 lbs of chopped meat
- 8 gallons of tomatoes
- we tossed lettuce, cucumbers, olives, onion and tomatoes in a 30 gal. garbage bag
Other than that, not much new has been happening... I have been a little under the weather with an unexplained fever and feeling yucky...but last night I got to stamp a little and helped my friend, Dena, create 36 card fronts out of the 200 she wants to bring to the Stampin' Up! convention this year. I got to use her new scalloped edge punch -- love it!:
Only one more month to go for me covering two jobs at IBM -- hopefully my co-worker is still coming back on September 2 ... then work/life can get "back to normal".
I joined a great Halloween swap on Artsy Mama's blog. Its called the Sweet and Sinister swap...my partner is from Richmond, VA! LOL!
I have to start playing with my new Canon Rebel camera -- I got a UV filter for it, and I just heard my remote is "in" so I hope to take a great self-portrait shots.
Off to find some dinner...I promise to write soon!
