I am still here,,

I am still here just been real busy making presents,cleaning and with only 1 week left before Christmas I better start on the baking,,but first I would like to tell you we had our EGA Christmas party this past Saturday, and I had a fabulous time. It started out in a cute little Tea Shop in downtown Riverside Florida, and it was perfect. In the first 4 pictures are some of the lovely ladies in our EGA, then the next one is what I had for lunch Tomato and Basil quiche with tomato herb soup, I also tried a new tea Prince of Whales and that was awesome..
Then after lunch we proceeded to this beautiful house for our party,,one of the ladies works here Thanks Melody,,and it was the perfect setting..and then the other pictures are of a House that is on the same street known as the castle house where 2 sisters live,, and a picture of the street it is just beautiful in this area on the St Johns river. And we did get some stitching done, infact I finished mine that I have been working on forever..Pictures to come soon. Well I will leave you here, I hope you all have a wonderful week.

But the weather has cooled off and the humidity has gone and it has been beautiful here in north Florida. I have been working on some projects some I can't show as they are presents. But I did finish a big one a blanket and I really liked the colors in it, also today me am and my grandson went and enjoy the nice weather here and had a good time at the park. I am flying out to Az for 10 days hoping to hit all my favorite spots the Attic being one of them, so till then keep those fingers moving and enjoy the pictures.

1 can of coconut milk
1/2 bag of shrimp or 2 boneless skinless chicken breast raw/chopped into nice size chunks
1Tbl of red curry paste
1Tbl of red chile sauce-more if you like it hotter
1/4 c of fish sauce
2Tbl oil
1 small chopped onion
2-3 cloves of garlic chopped
2 lemon grass stalks(white part only)-get this in Asian store
6 slices of fresh ginger-peeled
Chopped fresh basil
1 c of sliced mushrooms

In a soup pan heat oil and then add ginger and lemon grass sauté for 2 minutes then add onion and garlic and sauté another 2 minutes
