We were lucky to be joined by Cooking Fantastic for our August meeting. Tanya began by demonstrating a simple bread recipe which we later enjoyed with a baked Camembert with sweet chilli. She showed us a range of recipes from chicken liver pate to lemon posset which we all got to taste. She even demonstrated how to poach an egg! Various handy gadgets helped to make these tasks easier including a nifty gadget to take the top off an egg. We had the opportunity to buy a range of fabulous cooking items whilst tucking in to the lovely food. One sweetheart was lucky enough to win a Camembert baker donated by Tanya. If you missed the meeting don’t forget to visit the Cooking Fantastic shop and cafe just outside Harrogate.
In July we were joined by Janine from Bead for an amazing evening making our own bracelets. After a little introduction we were tasked with choosing our beads… and what a task it was. There was a huge selection of different colours, shapes and sizes and it was very hard to pick! Once we had finally decided on our selection it was time to create our bracelets (or anklets). With the assistance of Janine and her helpers we created some lovely pieces. There was a lot of concentration around the room mixed with lots of tea and cake. In was a very fun evening and we all left with our very own handmade bead bracelet. Have a look at some of our creations below.
In June we went on a fantastic treasure hunt, despite the British Summer weather! There was a super turn out, with over 30 + Sweethearts complete with brollies.
The treasure hunt ended at the lovely Corner Haus, where we were treated to a super spread of very tasty food and wonderful hospitality, catering for all. We were made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble!
I expect many of us will be making a return visit soon!
The winning team were………drum roll!
Sarah, Nohreen, Lizzie and Rachel . Well done x
