Today's party started at 10 am. I had a little trouble finding the house because it's in an area of town that I rarely visit. But I made it there on time and very much enjoyed myself at the party. The hostess (who is also the consultant), Vicki, made wonderful corn chowder and mini carrot cake muffins while we were there, demonstrating many of the products. What a great lunch!
So, what did I buy? I bought a chopper - the OnlyChild has been asking for one of these for a while and it would have come in handy when I was making all that salsa.
I bought a mini muffin pan - also at the request of the OnlyChild. She can make mini cupcakes in this and I know I'll use it too.
I bought a new pastry brush. This one is silicone (no photo) which means that nobody will find bristles in their piece of pie and think I got dog hair in the food.
I also got this baking dish for 60% off (the discount was a draw prize).
So what was so great about this party that I would blog about it? Vicki is a woman I met when we were in grade 6! And I haven't seen her since I moved away in grade 7! For those of you doing the math, that's almost 28 years. It was a really nice reunion - and, you know, she is exactly as I remember her. Same big blue eyes, same bubbly personality, same wide smile. She's just a little taller (I don't think I am) and is now married with two adorable little boys.
I very much enjoyed seeing her again and this time I hope we stay in touch a bit better.
Edited to add: I forgot to mention that Vicki and I had re-connected on Facebook about a year ago, so it wasn't just a coincidence that I ended up at her house. But wouldn't that have been a great story! Just thought I'd better make myself a bit clearer.
