First Potluck Crafters Dinner 4.13.08

Hi! Welcome to Potluck Crafters! We're two sisters, Sandra and Rachel.

We spent the day setting up our new blog. How do you like it? We also planned our menu for tonight, grocery shopped, and started cooking.

Sandra and I live in different towns, but we can always look forward to being together on Sundays. We've been having Sunday Family Dinners for more than one year now, and they're so much fun! We get together on Sundays and spend the day cooking, eating, chatting, drinking wine, laughing and catching up with each other. After a while, the rest of our family wanted to join in on the fun, so occasionally they'll join us and you'll meet them here too.

We also really like to craft things, and always dreamed about starting a business some day. We thought it would be a good idea to combine our passions for crafting and cooking, and change Sunday Family Dinners into Pot Luck Crafters. Sandra loves to crochet and spends a lot of time learning new stitches. She's started her own line of baby blankets and accessories and is going to open an Etsy shop soon. We'll link to it here. I like to screen print and make things out of felt. Whatever I make needs to be functional and decorative. It's the best feeling when a person compliments something I have, and I can say, "Thank you! I made this".

Ok so, here's what's on the menu for tonight.
Roasted Salmon with Lemon Pine Nut Relish and Baby Spinach
Creamy Carrot Rice
Strawberry Banana Sherbet
And wine of course!

If you have any favorite recipes or wines, let us know! We're always looking for something new to try. Alright, that's it for now! We have to start on dinner.

Kisses, Sandra and Rachel
