So, what's the best way to spend a cold snowy spring day??? Well in my world, it's scrapping and eating with a like-minded friend.
We had a lunch so delicious that we had it again for supper! Mickey made minestrone soup - the first time I've ever had it - and it was just perfect for a cold dreary day. It was so thick you could eat it with a fork, but we used spoons anyway.
For dessert I made strawberry nachos - a nice springy treat.
I had these for the first time when my sister made them for us last month when we were in Arizona. They are so simple and absolutely yummy. Here's the recipe.
Cinnamon Chips: (it's not an exact science so quantities are to your taste)
Preheat oven to 375. Brush each tortilla with melted butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on buttered tortillas. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife cut each tortilla into 8 wedges. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes or until the tortillas barely begin to crisp. Remove the crisps to a serving plate and let them rest 2 minutes to cool and crisp. (I made them the previous night and stored them in an air-tight container).
Place cinnamon chips on a platter and top with diced strawberries. Drizzle with melted chocolate. Drop dollops of whipped cream on edges, or all over if you like.
Eat with your fingers, scooping berries, chocolate and cream up with the cinnamon nacho chips. Quick, easy and delicious!
Although I worked steadily at my scrapbooking, I only got two pages done - but who's counting. I had a good time working on them.

So, that was the start to my weekend. Hope all of you have a good weekend - without snow!
