I am not much into making sweets, but I sure made some this week! The artist community where my studio is located hosted an event, and all the shops made some finger food. My shop is called Water Candy, and I wanted to stay in
theme... so to tell you about it this week I am sharing a blog post with my studio blog!
"This week in Tillett Gardens [where my studio is located], the Chamber of Commerce met for it's monthly Business After Hours, a networking and socializing event that is hosted by a different location each month. All of the shops
here were open, and we all provided some sort of light appetizer.
We wanted to stay within theme, so we made Water Candy Sushi! This was a fun recipe that was found on the Mommy Knows blog http://www.mommyknows.com/birthday-party-candy-sushi/<
We didn't document the process with photos, (because hers are so good)...and we're glad we didn't...up to our elbows in butter! If anyone wants to try this, truly, you can't use enough butter.
You begin by melting butter and marshmallows, then stirring in rice krispies. Instead of putting them in a pan, they are spread out thin on buttered wax paper. We cut them into rectangle sections, and laid 2 gummy worms end to end, and then two more on top.
Butter your hands, and very gently roll the rice krispies over the worms one turn, and cut the roll off of the rectangle. We let them chill for a while, then rolled unwrapped fruit roll ups around them.
let them chill until the event, then sliced them in the studio. How cute!
We made some as rolls, and some nigiri style, a little mound of rice krispies topped with a sliced candy orange, and wrapped with a strip of the roll up.
weren't too hard to make, and if you don't mind smelling like butter and marshmallows for days after, it's a very clever idea. Husband says "Never again", though!"

Otherwise, we did very good with the budget this week, and this is what we ate!:
Tuesday: Turkey sausage with broccoli and au gratin potatoes
Wednesday: Vegetable calzones
Thursday: Frozen pizza (the night of the event and we got home late!)
Friday: Teriyaki vegetables with rice
Saturday: Mushroom Chili Stew (out of the Vegetarian Times cookbook...husband says it was better than most meat chilis...wow!)
Sunday: Egg salad sandwiches with tomato basil soup
Monday: Tofu Parm...my favorite!
Definitely the highlight of the week was the mushroom chili...I am sure the recipe is on the VegTimes website if you don't have the cookbook. Did you notice we did vegetarian 5 of 7 dinners this week? Husband didn't!
We spent $79.50, the budget is $105, so $25.50 into Vacation Fund this week- yay!
