SYOB and Recipes!
SYOB ~ Sleep in Your Own Bed Retreat is the most popular function at the Studio. We have so much fun! 8 students get to work on any project they’d like. I’m there to help if needed, keep the snacks and meals coming ~ the support person! I love it! It’s always such a great group of ladies. If I haven’t said it before (and I’m sure I have) quilters are GREAT people!
Here’s some shots from this weekends SYOB along with a couple recipes from Saturday’s lunch.
These are paper pieced. I would have never thought to make Christmas trees in black and white but these are going to make a great wallhanging. With a little spot of red ….fabulous!

Here are a couple recipes from Saturday lunch~
Mexican Chef Salad
Throw first 5 ingredients in a large bowl~
1/4 onion chopped
1 bag of romaine hearts
3 tomatoes cut up
1 cup grated cheese
1-lb. ground beef
1 can black beans
Brown the ground beef. Add the drained can of beans to the beef and simmer 10 minutes.
Add beef mixture and 1/2 bag of crushed Nacho Cheese Doritos to the bowl.
Pour 3/4 bottle of French Dressing over all.
Wash you hands good and then mix it all up using your hands to turn all the ingredients and mix together.
This recipe could be modified in many different ways depending on your taste. Play with it and make it your own.
Tip: This is a salad that isn’t good made ahead of time. Mix this all together just before serving.
To get a jump start on this salad I brown the beef and simmer with the beans ahead of time. Then refrigerate until I’m ready to put the salad together. Pop the beef mixture in the microwave to warm it up and in a couple minutes it’s ready to go.
You could also do the chopping ahead so all you have left to do is mix it all together.
Margaret’s Berry Trifle
6 oz. box of vanilla instant pudding
1 1/2 c. buttermilk
large tub of cool whip
pound/angel food cake (about 1 1/2 purchased pound cake loafs or 1/2 angel food cake)
1 pint assorted berries
Wash berries and allow to dry or blot gently with a paper towel.
Cube the cake into bite sized pieces.
Mix together the buttermilk and pudding mix. Stir in cool whip.
In a large straight sided glass bowl layer the three different items making sure you can see cake and berries through the side of the bowl.
Tip: Adjust this to your liking. I’m thinking peaches and blueberries will be the next try! Yum!
You could also serve this in individual goblets as pictured below. (No we don’t use crystal at the SYOB). :-)
Pound cake is the traditional cake for a trifle but angel food is good and less fat! You could also use a sugar free pudding mix, fat free cool whip and fat free buttermilk. It’s possible to make this so it’s not to sinful!
Thanks for visiting!
