It's so hard to pick just one scarf from Jan's amazing collection. I will have to bring you some more next visit!!
Jan's birthday this month too and Julie of Dorsbien made her a fabulous treasury:)
As promised here are a couple more of Jan's lovely scarves. These were chosen by team members for their treasuries this month:
AtelierJen chose this pretty scarf.
|Souvenir of New Zealand|
Julie picked this gorgeous colour scarf
|Alysen chose this one|
and there were so many more .. we could just keep going so you really need to go visit for yourself.. foulardfantastique. Enjoy your visit!!
*Jan originally comes from the UK and now lives in Toronto, Canada.
She is sharing a couple of her favourite recipes with us:
I am not a 'recipe' person any more having cooked for so long I barely measure anything (cept for cakes and jams)
Easy to throw together anywhere in the world....feel free to try any root veg or any spice or any onion...this is only a starting point
Carrot and poppy seed salad.
4 large carrots
2 teaspoons poppy seeds
2 spring onions
oil/lemon juice dressing of your choice
Peel carrots with peeler. Continue to peel carrots down the length of the carrot to form thin ribbons.
Put poppy seeds in heavy saucepan and dry roast for a few minutes, leave to cool.
Mix carrot ribbons, onions and dressing, sprinkle with poppy seeds.....serve.
From my DIL ....again, feel free to use any fruit or nuts.
Pear and arugula salad.
3 ripe pears, peeled chopped or sliced
4 or 5 large handfuls of arugula or watercress
large handful walnut pieces
4 oz approx blue cheese of your choice. crumbled
sprinkle pears with lemon juice
roast/ brown walnuts in oven....cool
mix all together at last moment turning gently with your hands
drizzle with olive oil or oil of your choice.
No other seasoning is required as the lemon juice is in the pears and there is plenty of salt in the blue cheese.
Thanks Jan. These sound delicious!
Finally before we bid our fantastic member of the month farewell, here is a treasury in her honour.
We had fun Jan... hope you did too!!!
