    Hi, all. I'm not dead (yet) - checking in with the old-timers

    KG sent me a note the other day and I realized just how long it's been since I've popped in to say Hi. What's up? Let's see... what have I been up to? Around the end of 2009, I taught myself to knit. And a few months later I got a job at a local yarn shop that, a few months later...

    CS Meet 'n' Greet

    Let's get together to put faces to the names! I know that people will be getting in to Chicago at varying times, and that those who have the Director training will be busy on Monday (July 12). But that day's probably the best, as individual clusters are less likely to have things planned (at...

    2010 CS buttons for Conference

    Hey, all! I'm putting this here just because there's no 2010 Conference area yet. I just finished a new button for us to identify each other at conference this year. Previous buttons had a large white area in the chef's hat for writing on usernames. This year's looks like a name badge...

    Bridal Apron on supply

    Quick question... a clustermate has a friend getting married and was thinking of getting her the bridal apron as a gift. But she doesn't want it if it's the one that says "Pampered Bride." And of course, the apron is one of the items that's not pictured on the supply order cheat-sheet. Has...

    WW points - current cookbooks

    I just got the rest of my Spring samples, and the first thing I did (before I even unpacked the box!) was to update the Weight Watchers points list. The list with recipes from the retired books is available through a file search. Look for a document with WW in the title. And please...

    FS: Cranberry and Sage linen set NIP

    I'm going through a fairly large box of stuff and found a still-sealed package of Cranberry and Sage placemats and napkins. I haven't had a chance to take a picture, but will post one later. Anybody want these? They were a consultant special item from Fall 2004, and matched the towels that...

    FS: Disney photo album/scrapbook

    I bought a Creative Memories Disney scrapbook last year, thinking it would help get me enthused for the Disney incentive trip. Well, it didn't work, and now I have a book that I'll never use. I know that there are people here who DID earn the trip and may be looking for something cute for their...

    Seeking Hospitality, Monument/Colo Spgs, CO

    This request isn't for me, it's for someone in my extended cluster. One of our team members locally signed her daughter, who lives in Monument, CO. The recruiter has sent a note to our director (who is out of state for both parties), requesting a Hospitality director for her daughter...

    Prospect- Kosher and no car

    I know there are threads on here dealing with these issues, and I will do a search to get what info I can from them. I just wanted to get a current-day perspective, since some of the threads may be pretty old. And this way, I can get current feedback from people who have dealt with this type of...

    I'm so excited! Get to see someone live!!

    I'm just about jumping out of my skin right now. A clustermate sent me a note Friday afternoon about a lecture at a local University. They bring in speakers for the students, and this speaker was highly requested - came in first in a vote for who they should get this year. The tickets are...

    Someone needs to post instructions

    One of the Canadians who attended conference needs to post the product dance steps! I just got Tammy Stanley's newsletter for the week, and she mentions doing product dance steps with the consultants at PC conference in Canada. Actually, the whole newsletter is pretty gushing about PC, but...

    Here are the names of the recipes included on Use and Care cards for the Fall 2009 products. (Is it just me, or are there a lot that don't come with a recipe? I remember being able to tell customers that the only tools that didn't come with one, other than those that came with the use and...

    Becky-- you NEED this book!

    Becky, I picked up the cookbook that I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, Fix Freeze Feast. You absolutely need this book! Just reading through it, the authors seem to have some of the same food opinions as you regarding processed food (although they do use some in these recipes). The recipes...

    F/W 2009 supplies

    I just got my big "get ready for the new season" supply order and wanted to pass along some info. While I did order the pack of 100 receipts (JM24), the box also included a pack of 50 that I did not order. So apparently, there is still a free pack of receipts this season. The number for that...

    Ingredient Tip: Gooey Chocolate Mini Cakes

    Last night, I was reading through the new SBRC, and was intrigued by the Gooey Chocolate Mini Cakes. They're not the Molten cakes from a couple of seasons ago. And they had an ingredient that I couldn't quite put my finger on: whipped peanut butter nougat-filled candy bars. For the life of me, I...

    REVIEW: Parmesan-Crusted Chicken with risotto

    From the Weekday Dinners - Done! cards. I'd say this recipe is pretty good. I had nothing measured, although I did have things out of the cupboards and fridge, and it was done in about 30 minutes. The chicken is delicious, and the rice is pretty good. DH liked it because he could tell it...

    TYPO in Weekday Dinners cards

    Just an FYI-- there's a typo on the Week 1 shopping list card of the Weekday Dinners set. I took that with me to pick up a few things to try one of the recipes tonight. That card says "14.75 oz. can condensed tomato soup." That's not a standard size. The recipe itself has the correct size: 10.75...

    Updated product listing, Fall 2009

    Attached is the updated version of my product listing file. It's sortable and searchable... and includes products going back to 2001. There are a few that I've missed, like some HWC items (although I did put in this year's). It's handy for looking up prices or historical information (like the...

    Spring Launch mtg, Feb 4, 2010 - Dearborn MI

    This should be plenty of notice (LOL). And don't tell DH, ;) but any Cheffers heading to the Dearborn Spring Launch meeting on Thursday, Feb. 4, 2010 are welcome to my house afterward for dinner. Of course, this is based on an assumption that the training hours will be similar to this year's...

    Who's interested in a pizza party? Several of us had been tossing around the idea of getting together for dinner on Sunday. We're trying to watch our pennies, and the frugal suggestion we had (Corner Bakery) closes at 5 on Sunday. So.... I suggested a pizza party. You in? It would be...
