How to Plan an Unforgettable Party
Are you as excited as me to host people again?
The other week I offered up my yard for a friends gathering before the summer diaspora due to family vacations. The plan was to order in food and we would each bring a drink or small snack to nibble on while we waited for the delivery.
I found myself at the grocery store deliberating on what to make as a snack. I had too many things I wanted to make and I was driving myself crazy zipping from one end of the store to the next and not to mention I was making this errand exponentially longer than it needed to be.
I stood contemplating in front of the frozen cornucopia of appetizers that we all love from TJ's. Why did I need to edit it down? Was I willing to make it all?
Well, then. I thought, just make it. I obviously wanted and needed to feel that excitement of having people over, making their favorites and relaxing by the fire pit while we nibble and chat. I grabbed the samosa's and went back to the veggie isle.
They were pleasantly surprised and we all dug in. The night was such a success, even though the fire pit wouldn't turn on. ( Luckily I was able to fix it the next day.) The roasted marshmallows would just have to be for another day, or rather, the kids will love them.
So here's a few ideas that can be the icing on the cake for your next gathering:

Here's the recipe I follow:
You will need a mixing bowl and gloves make it less painful if you have cuts on your hand!
Directions: Mix/Shake the food coloring with the water, set aside.
Mix all dry except Citric Acid. Now add the colored water. Mix till incorporated and like crumbly wet sand at the beach. And now you can add the Citric Acid and it won't react too much with the water. Press tightly into the mold. Remove carefully and dry overnight. Ready for use or package up!
