Homemade Flower Pots ~ Hypertufa - Hypertuff - lightweight concrete pots

When Doris was in Escondido for a visit we (Doris and Irene) made flower pots using Martha Stewart's "recipe".

We had to have a toast to our/their creations! Armin is ALWAYS the man that cleans up, thank you Armin.
Hildegard had to come and put succulents into the pots since I have no clue on how to do that. Here are the results:
Since we have lots of leftover materials we (I need to recruit again) will make more pots to sell for a fundraiser for Rady Children's Hospital in December.

Dinner and a Movie - Timpano and Big Night

On May 8th we had our dinner and movie night at Dale and Irene's house. We ate two versions of Timpano and watched Big Night.  It was a great evening!

I used the recipe from the Tipsy Cook and Nick and Patty made their vegetarian version with roasted slices of eggplant, risotto, peas, mushrooms, spinach and herbs.

The next Dinner and A Movie night: Julie & Julia
