I loved using the large pattern flower paper for the background of this layout.  This was from my girl's senior prom.  We took the pictures in a large beautiful park-there were TONS of kids there getting their pictures taken.  We took advantage of the opportunity and took several pictures with her friends that were in different groups.  These two have been friends for quiet a while and was such a treat for me to see all the kids dressed up and looking GORGEOUS!
I used the Sunshine Days kit to create this layout-love how the gold just fits right in!  Here are a few closeups:

Pinterest Food Find-Fish & Chips AND Tartar sauce

1 comment:
I honesty LOVE Fish & Chips and I was really craving it the other day and I stumbled on this recipe, the only ingredient that I had to run to the store for was brown rice flour-SO yummy especially with homemade tartar sauce (not a huge fan of sweet pickles but this was DELICIOUS!)

Picture and Recipe from: Food Network



Heat 3-inches of the oil in a deep fryer to 325 degrees F. Alternately, heat 3-inches of oil in a deep pot. (I fried mine on the stove top because I don't own a deep fryer)
Peel the potatoes and cut them into chips, about the size of your index finger. Put the potatoes in the oil. Fry the chips for 2 to 3 minutes; they should not be crisp or fully cooked at this point. Remove the chips with a spider strainer or slotted spoon, to a paper towel-lined platter to drain.
Crank the oil temperature up to 375 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, and egg. Pour in the soda water and whisk to a smooth batter. Spread the rice flour on a plate. Dredge the fish pieces in the rice flour and then dip them into the batter, letting the excess drip off.
Put the chips in the bottom of the fryer basket and carefully submerge in the hot oil. Carefully wave the battered fish into the bubbling oil before dropping them in on top of the chips. Fry the fish and chips for 4 to 5 minutes until crispy and brown. Remove the basket and drain the fish and chips on paper towels; season lightly with salt. Serve wrapped in a newspaper cone with malt vinegar and/or tartar

Ingredients for Tartar Sauce:

1 cup real Mayonnaise
1 cup finely chopped pickles
1 Tbsp dill (fresh or frozen), OR 1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp finely chopped onion is good too, but optional
Combine everything and stir!
