Well, I guess I missed it! Guess I'll have to comb over the entries and see what the answer to the mystery is.

Actually, this sounds like something I would do.
I just uploaded a card to the HYCCT sample gallery, typed up the description and details, it said your image has uploaded successfully and all, and then I couldn't find it anywhere, it wasn't in my gallery or the samply gallery - it was GONE, like the Bermuda Triangle! Then I realized I'd forgotten to browse for the photo and had uploaded a blank space....sort of like what's between my ears these days.
Now I feel better because when I uploaded my cards a couple of days ago, I had the same problem of not being able to find them, so thought maybe I had only thought I had uploaded thaty one. So I uploaded it again and by the time I was finished checking to see if it was there and not finding it and uploading again - whew -I had it uploaded three times and then all three showed up on the thread! I swear they were not there before!!
So hopefully some nice moderator took off the two extra ones. I think I had an extra one on a second card as well. Probably just my computer or me doing something not quite right!

Good afternoon ladies! We have gorgeous Indian Summer here. I hope everyone else is blessed with weather like we have. Ours will be short lived though. It's cooling down here mid week. We've gone from having the furnace on to needing the air and I guess it will be back to the furnace soon!

Thinking about making multiple cards for a few of the challenges. I'm caught up and I just may feel like crafting a bit tonight.

We make this at home at least once a month (we like Indian, Thai, Moroccan, etc... flavors)

I don't serve these in pita.. I just serve them with lettuce leaves to wrap around the patties... They are really YUMMY!!!

Tandoori-Style Chicken Burgers
1 1/2 pounds (4 to 5) boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into rough chunks
4 scallions, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger (from a peeled 2-inch piece)
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
1 tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Coarse salt and ground pepper
Vegetable oil, for grates
4 (6-inch) whole-wheat pitas
1 cucumber (8 ounces), halved lengthwise and thinly sliced on the diagonal
1/2 cup fresh cilantro sprigs
Cumin yogurt sauce

Heat grill to medium-high. In a medium bowl, place chicken, scallions, ginger, lemon juice, paprika, cumin, cardamom, cayenne, 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; toss to combine. Set aside to marinate, at least 10 and up to 30 minutes.

Transfer chicken mixture to a food processor; pulse until roughly chopped, but not pasty, 10 to 12 times. Gently form mixture into sixteen 3/4-inch-thick patties (about 3 tablespoons each).

Moisten a folded paper towel with oil; grasp with tongs and rub over grates. Season patties with salt and pepper; grill until opaque throughout, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Halve pitas crosswise (toast on grill, if you like). Into each pocket, place 2 chicken patties, cucumber slices, and cilantro sprigs. Serve with Cumin Yogurt Sauce



Cumin Yogurt Sauce
In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt with 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin; season with coarse salt and ground pepper.
Oh! This sounds so yummy!

Ok now that I have caught up on all the chat, guess I had better get back to stamping. Hubby got home this afternoon but he wants to watch football tonight so perfect time for me to stamp. I'll be dreaming of Apple crisps and Spudnuts while I stamp. I didn't get the cookies made yet. Made caramel popcorn instead last night and ate most of it myself. I shouldn't make things when I'm the only one home - I think someone else mentioned that too.
But speaking of caramel popcorn, I'll post that recipe, since I said I would post one and still haven't. This is a soft caramel not crunchy like Cracker Jacks.
Caramel Popcorn

Caramel Popcorn

1-1/4 cup karo syrup (half dark)
3 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
6 quarts poppped popcorn

Combine Karo syrup and sugar, bring to a boil. Add condensed milk, bring to a boil. Add butter, cook to soft ball stage.
Pour syrup over popcorn and mix well. Spread out on cookie sheet to cool.
Enjoy!

Pat

Oh my, apple crisp and caramel in the same pan!!! Heaven on earth...I'm so going to try that....I looooooove caramel....speaking of which, here is a totally decadent brownie recipe:

Caramel ribbon brownies

14 oz caramel (block caramel or wrapped candies)
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 can evaporated milk
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 box German chocolate cake mix

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 13x9" glass baking dish. In medium bowl, put cut up caramel and 1/3 cup evaporated milk, cook in microwave on high until caramel softened (about 1 minute). Stir until completely melted into a caramel sauce. Combine the cake mix, butter, 1/3 cup evaporated milk, vanilla and 1/2 cup nuts. Mix well and spread 2/3 of batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 8 minutes. Sprinkle the chips evenly over the top of brownies, pour the caramel sauce over top of chips, leaving about 1/4" around outer edge. Add enough of remaining evaporated milk to saved cake batter to make a thick pudding consistency. Drop by glops over caramel sauce. Sprinkle remaining nuts over top. Return to oven and bake for 25-35 minutes. Center will still be slightly gooey but will firm up as cools. Let brownies cool in pan then cut into bars.

WARNING: These go very fast so save one for yourself before setting plate out!!

I live a little way north of Houston TX - I work part time and my hubby works full time and is gone for a week at a time about every other week. (Except when they mess up his schedule which happens a lot - so no planning in advance for much). You would think I could get a lot done but with they kids gone and even our dog is gone - she died many years ago - it's just too quiet around here. Even my cd player is broken and gone so I can't even play music. So I go out almost every day for lunch with friends and by the time I get home again I have lost motivation to accomplish much for the rest of the day.
But today (after lunch) I will make cards (after I cut the grass)(while my laundry is in the washing machine). See there is always plenty to do to keep me from just sitting in my stamping room and having fun.
Some day I am going to get to your neck of the woods. I've been close a couple of times but have never made it to the state of NY. I have enough points saved up for another ticket though so watch out.

Just popping in really quickly to say hi! I got a challenge card made today, but uploading it is going to have to wait until tomorrow... it's late, and I have to work tomorrow, so I need to get to bed.

All the dessert recipes sound yummy. One of these days I'll have to share something with y'all.

How far north of Houston do you live? Woodlands, Conroe, Huntsville? I'm a native Houstonian. My family still can't believe I move out of Texas! Glad to hear a 'voice from home.' Everyone here in Missouri says I have a drawl. I just don't hear it! LOL!

Spudnuts are donuts made with potato flour. I don't know the recipe, but they are GOOD!

I may have to make that Caramel Popcorn for our company!

Getting to ready to bake Punkin Bread for them now!

And then my easy, peasy lasagne. I don't cook the noodles ahead. I just use them uncooked and layer the meat sauce, cottage cheese mixed with egg, shredded mozzarella and the noodles. Then bake about an hour! YUM! And very little work or mess!!

I AM lucky. Trust me I know this. I remember when I realized not everyone had close family like I do.

Other brother lives about 5 miles away and mom and sis live on the same property about an hour away. We were there this weekend

I feel like I'm so lucky and blessed with all my in-laws! I married into a fantastic family! I came from a very bad place....but my Prince Charming rescued me when I was 22 and I've lived happily ever after so far! Quite a few issues thru the years caused by my blood family, but then my hubby cut them all off unless they agreed to change. They did not and our lives have been peaceful ever since!

Hahaha a few years ago my kids' preschool had a firetruck and firemen in for a little lesson. I learned a lot This was a pic of one of the guys getting all in the equipment so the kids would know what they looked and sounded like.

I had half the leftovers for breakfast, DH had his half after dinner and he's still saying it was exceptional . So I guess I'd better transfer it from a post-it onto a filing card or into a book.
Only thing is I hate it when something is exceptional - it's hard to live up to that standard. He still reminisces about a blackberry and apple crumble I made - 23 years ago . Apparently I've never made one as good.

A friend on Facebook shared this and I made it and it was TO DIE FOR!

Even the DH raved about it and he's not too big on adventurous veggie recipes. I'm making it again tonight.

Spaghetti Squash Slaw

One medium squash, pierce several times with a fork and bake whole at 350 for about an hour. It will turn golden and the bottom on the pan will be browned. You know its done when picking it up (with oven mitts please) it gives and seems "squishy".

Take out and let cool while you chop:

Savour tomatoes
Red bell pepper
green onions
2 cloves pressed garlic
course ground black pepper
2TBS Olive Oil
2TBS Balsamic Vinegar
Tsp. fresh oregano or more to taste

5 oz crumbled blue cheese

Cut the ends off the cooked spaghetti squash, then cut down the length. Spoon out all seeds then have fun; this is the fun part right? Run the fork across the meat of the squash to rake up the spaghetti strings (it makes about 3 cups.)

Toss with all the other stuff and serve warm or cold, doesn't really matter. If it sits in fridge overnight the squash is crunchier and the flavors blend more.

That's it, really simple and makes about four to six servings of about 123 calories! Seriously even with the blue cheese! The whole squash is about 165 calories so all the calories come from the oil & cheese

Oh I forgot to say I bake with granny smith. I use softer apples if I"m doing a baked apple tho.

Now that's one I will definitely try. I love spaghetti squash. I love every kind of squash!

, see, I speed-read your apple variety because it wasn't anything I'd use in cooking.
I used to think that rutabaga must be some amazing exotic vegetable when I first heard the name in some Stephen Sondheim song. Then I looked it up - what a letdown that was!
I've finally finished my card for today, just got to decide if it's worth a flash photo now. If the weather tomorrow is anything like today there ain't going to be much sunshine and light.
