We used paint sample cards to make valentines bookmarks for our friends; punched a hole, added a ribbon, signed and decorated the back :) these are Disney paint cards- so it was convenient they already had Mickeys on them.
Tomato-basil parmesan soup. This is really nice recipe. I made it this past summer and used fresh tomatoes and fresh Basil. I cooked it on the stove on a low simmer. But this could be made in the Crock pot as well. Nothing like Fresh, right from the garden and right into the Pot. I Used evaporated milk. Its much lower in fat verses cream or Milk,
