Good Afternoon Stampers!
Just a super quick post from me before I hit the sack for a few hours before I have to go back to work! Today is a brand new Loves Rubberstamps Challenge so I wanted to share my inspiration project that I created :)
This week our theme is Cute as a Button and all you have to do is have a button on your project - either a real one or make your own ... easy peasy! We also have a guest sponsor of The Paper Shelter who is providing our winner with a $20.00 gift certificate to their store! This is a super awesome prize! So just for playing along with us this week you could be a lucky winner of up to a $40.00 prize package!
Here is what I created using the Chef Trattoria Digi from The Paper Shelter.
I have mentioned a few times that one of my FAVORITE things to do is make scrapbook recipe pages and when I saw this adorable Chef, I knew he would be perfect on one :) This is a 6"x6" page and it features a pocket in the middle so I could slip the ingredients list in one section and the cooking directions in another. The Designer papers I used are from the Authentique Enchanted Paper Pack and my "Secret Recipe" stamp is from the Cookbookin Tasty Phrases Stamp Set.
Here is a peek at the recipe cards pulled out...
I got this recipe for Jessica Alba's Turkey Meatballs from the Martha Stewart website.
Here is the Recipe...
2 pounds lean ground turkey
1 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
1/4 cup finely chopped carrots
1/4 cup finely chopped zucchini
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon coarse sea salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 cup homemade or store-bought low-sodium chicken broth
1.In a large bowl, mix turkey, panko, carrots, zucchini, onion, eggs, Italian seasoning, and salt until well combined; form into 1-inch balls.
2.Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add meatballs and cook, turning, until browned, about 7 minutes.
3.Add 1/2 cup chicken broth; cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until liquid is almost completely absorbed, about 7 minutes. Add remaining 1/4 cup broth and increase heat to medium; cook, uncovered, until liquid is absorbed. Serve.
You can see the original recipe on Martha Stewart's Website - Here.
I hope you get a chance to play along this week with us! We would LOVE to see your creative use of buttons :) Now I am off to hit the hay... 4 hours of sleep is going to go fast :(
