Recap of Home Ec #8: Summer Fruit (and Teasing #9)

It’s tough to believe that August has come and gone!  We celebrated the heat of summer on August 28th with a Home Ec party dedicated to summer fruit!

This was the busiest Home Ec yet – there were more than 30 people through the evening and the food was amazing.

MaryAnn (who has made it to every Home Ec) Fashioned to entire cases of Mason Jar Wine Glasses that became home to the cocktail of the week.  Her glasses were a hit as was Emily’s cocktail that included a tea infused lemon squash that we brought for her to add her magic.

A giant thanks once again to Margaret Mulligan for her amazing photography skills.  She took unbelievable shots while McGuyering a setup from an old chair and a bunch of construction paper. You can find Margarets work and contact through here.  She’s a great friend and a great talent.

If you haven’t made it out to Home Ec before, our next event is a week from tomorrow (Monday, September 24th).  It’s a non-competitive social evening that’s essentially a community potluck.  There’s always new people and we’re a welcoming bunch who enjoy meeting others as well as sharing food and friendship.  This month’s theme is honey (official announcements and some ideas coming tomorrow so stay tuned!)  There’s a host of posts from our events so far this year here (it’s always the last Monday of the month; except for December)!  There’s no cover and we give out badges (pins) that match the theme of each event – we hope to see you next week!

In the meantime, here’s a photo journal of the August event:

    • Thank you Jean, I’ll make sure Margaret hears your kind words; she really is amazing! Thank you for taking the time to share your kind words – these ‘little’ gestures mean a lot to us all! :) Joel
