Stampers+ Team Christmas Party


Hello SP Fans,

Last night was our annual StampersPlus Christmas party!! What a great time we all had! Paper crafting exchange, yummy food, and wonderful team/friends!

I have been working on this for weeks, pulling together the menu, and all the details to make this happen! It was such a fun, festive Christmas!

Here is our StampersPlus Team who attended, Kalea (our future demonstrator), Jessie, Bev, Susanna, and me (Liz).

We all get along very well, and most of all we are great friends.  Life without these girls would be so dull in life.  I am so glad they are on my team.  We had so much laughs and just catching up with the stories told.

The hit was these Ginger Orange Glazed Chicken Wings.  If you are looking for a new taste, you got to try this.  This is for a large group (20 pp) but can be scaled down.
2-1/2 cups frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed and undiluted
3/4 cup lemon juice
1-1/4 cups hoisin sauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1-1/4 cups sugar
3/4 cup minced peeled ginger
15 cloves fresh garlic, minced
10 lbs chicken wings
15 medium green onions, thinly sliced
  1. In a large, resealable bag, mix the orange juice concentrate, lemon juice, hoisin sauce, vegetable oil, sugar, ginger, and fresh garlic. Add chicken wings, seal, and shake to coat evening.  Refrigerate overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Pour marinating sauce out.  Spread wings on parchment paper and bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown and shiny.  Transfer to serving platter and garnish with green onions.

These were so delicious that there were no leftovers.

Every year I try to get the girls something handmade.  Each who attended received a personalized card stand with a flower.  It is a way to say thank you for being part of the StampersPlus Team.  I won’t get into the “Recipes” for each card but if you need the colors, papers, accessories used, please PM me and I will get the information to you.

 

Oh … in the end, Mr. Stitch was all tuckered out.  Kalea played hard with him.

Happy Holidays All!

Hugs,
