Reuben Time!

Today I have for you Reuben Eggrolls! The best part about eggrolls is you can make a bunch and freeze some for later which makes a quick meal! And I bake mine instead of deep frying which is even healthier! If you want to freeze some after baking let them cool,roll in foil and place in a freezer bag. Then when your ready to eat just reheat in the oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes! Voila!

Click HERE for the recipe!

* This recipe tells you to deep fry them but if you want to bake them instead just line them on your cookie sheet, spray the tops with non-stick cooking spray and bake at 425 degrees til golden and crispy...about 15 minutes depending on your oven. Sometimes I even turn mine halfway...I don't think that is necessary I just have a habit of doing that with most things I can flip! LOL! *

Here is one opened up so you can see the inside. I smothered it with my homemade thousand island dressing which I usually don't do cause I am not a fan of that dressing but my MIL's dad was a chef and I have his recipe....so good! He also has a bleu cheese one that is AMAZING! But I won't be sharing those just in case someone in the family decides to make millions off of the recipe! LOL! :P

What if you run out of eggroll wrappers and still have filling left? Just scramble it up with some eggs! I also added fresh mushrooms and spinach....season to taste with salt/pepper (sometimes I add garlic) and it makes a yummy lunch! :)

Wheels and a challenge rule change....

Time for our second challenge over at Unstampabelles and for this month we want to see WHEELS! We are also going to offer you an extra entry for the prize if you do the technique and for this month we want you to try out SPIRELLI! You have until September 3rd to get your entries in and the new challenge will start on September 5th. Remember you must have wheels on your project and spirelli is optional but it will get you an extra entry!

RULE CHANGE: We were allowing stamped sentiments but since our primary focus is on papercrafting techniques and not using stamps we decided to change this rule to NO STAMPS at all! No rubber, digi, sentiments, etc.!

Our sponsor for this month is Kelly from Kel's Kaszazz Kaleidoscope! She is offering up the wonderful goodies you see in the picture below!

Here is my card to get you started!

* Please click on the image to see the swiss dot embossing on the top two panels...I couldn't use my light box and this was the best photo I could get without it. *

I used the spirelli technique on the center green scalloped piece. If you need a tutorial on this technique click HERE! I had this great baby carriage 3D sticker for my wheels! Used some ribbon in my stash and added another 3D sticker for the sentiment along with two heart rub-ons.

Go ahead and give NO STAMPING a try! You have an entire month so I hope to see some of you over at Unstampabelles!
