Tuesday, June 8 Craft Group

Craft group will be making this Tooth Fairy tooth on Tuesday June 8th at Lynn Muir's home 7pm. These are great and super cute! No more reaching under the pillow of a sleeping child! :)

For those interested:
Please bring felt for tooth, pocket, cheeks, little teeth, and any accessories you add, like the crown and ballerina skirt. (we also have white felt for the teeth, and lots of small felt scraps for decor/accessories, ribbon for the hanging loop, buttons for eyes, Fabritac or other fabric glue, matching thread, embroidery floss, etc... (we have a bunch left over from another craft, I will have it.),optional pipe cleaners for wings, poly stuffing (Bring 25 cents for stuffing. We will buy a bag.
Two of the 8 x 11.5 pieces of felt work great for the tooth. Or 8 inches off the bolt.

Retreat Recipe

Cafe Rio Pork
1 pork loin
2 cups pace medium salsa
2 cups brown sugar
Put in your slow cooker for 6-8 hours on low. Shred and let sit for one more hour.

Lime Rice
3 cups of rice
3 cups of water
1/2 onion
1/2 bunch cilantro
1 can green chilies
4 t garlic- minced
4 t chicken bouillon
1/2 t salt
1 T butter
4 T lime juice
Blend/Chop onion, cilantro, and chilies in a food processor (or you can just chop onion and cilantro by hand). Then put all ingredients in with the rice and cook; either on stove or in a rice cooker. I did it in my rice cooker. So, I added 3 cups of rice to 3 cups water, then added in the blended stuff PLUS the rest of the ingredients, mixed it up and closed the lid. I don't think you have to be exact with this, it pretty much always turns out good. Some people like to add jalapenos to the rice or dressing for more spice. But, I am not a spicy person :)

Creamy Cilantro Dressing
1 pkg. Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing (dry mix)
1 cup buttermilk
1/2-1 bunch of cilantro, chopped
1 cup mayo
2 tsp. lime juice
2 tomatillos (remove outer papery skin)
2 garlic cloves
Blend all ingredients in blender or food processor. Refrigerate.

I enjoyed cooking it for you sisters! Glad you all liked it!
LOVE- Lynn Muir
