Central Catholic Show

We had a great time at the Central Catholic show on November 27. Saturday we had our booth next to a P90X Lady so we came home doing butt flexes and "jumping for joy" which was good after all our Thanksgiving feasts. We were surrounded by interesting people and the day was very enjoyable.
This was towards the front of our booth. Our Christmas time creations were a very popular section all day long!

Here is the box of rosettes that we created. Dani looked great in her pearly-flower two booths down from us.

The Amelia Earhart suitcase held our Christmas tags and cards. These were an extremely popular item as we entered the holiday shopping season.

Name banners and word banners spread spirit. Contact me and I'll make any name, word, or team you want! The family pictures on the bottom rack can be created from any song or book that you want. Other words that look great on these are last names, faith, love, and teach.
If you are working on your Christmas list and didn't get a chance to buy that special gift during the show Saturday, contact me via email or leave a comment here. Also, our kitchen table creations "creations" section has items that I currently have and would be happy to sale to you.
Happy Shopping!

Eat Cake Wreath

I'm so excited about this adorable wreath. It was created with a cookbook from the 1970's that had all sorts of cakes, pies, cookies, and sweet goodies that make an elf very excited.
Thanks to mom for the cute ribbon with the spoons and forks on it. I've rationed it out! The wooden spoon had served a great life in my kitchen and I love the new life it will have.

Thanksgiving Breakfast

A friend of mine had a great idea of entertaining hungry house guests, and yourself, with this simple breakfast. Enjoy it as you prepare the turkey and fixings!


These omlets are made in muffin pans so that they are portable. Grab one as you stuff the turkey before the sun has even thought about shining.

6 eggs
1 1/2 c. ham (cooked and chopped) I buy the ham from the grocery store that is diced or use browned, ground turkey since that is what I usually have in the fridge
1/2 c. shredded cheese (or more if you wish!)
1/2 c. bread crumbs (did you know that using your coffee grinder makes great bread crumbs?!)
3 T. melted (warm but not hot) butter
onion, salt and pepper added to your taste and crowd

Use a mixing bowl with a spout- makes life much easier when it's time to pour the "batter" into the muffin tin. Beat the eggs together. Stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into muffin tins. (I line the tins if we are going to eat these in the car or on the run but for Thanksgiving they'd be great without the liners...just have the dog follow you around or use a plate!)
Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes.
Makes 12 quiches.

SUPER EASY!!! Super delicious!!!

Welcome to the first of our musings from our kitchen table. First step was to create a better name than copycatcreations for our up and coming adventure. We are about to begin anew. Not just turning the page or starting a new chapter. Hopefully we will be switching books entirely!
