Yesterday, we went to our friends house to cook---a fun Sunday lunch get together. We made Cambodian Chicken Soup and Navajo Fry Bread. More on the fry bread tomorrow. We liked the soup----it was light so it's good for summer. Always looking for new soups to try and this was a fun one because it had so many ingredients. *It says to add the rice to the soup, but we served the soup over the rice which I liked better.
For dessert, my friend baked me a birthday raspberry cream pie that was oozing with whipped cream and tartness. Am I lucky or what?!?! It was DEEEEEEEEEE-Viiiiiiine! I can't say as I've ever had raspberry cream pie, which now seems like a crime. Two left over pieces await us in the fridge for a late afternoon treat with some coffee. Lovely on this rainy day! And now for some links from the bead bloggers...

Chandelier earrings are still super popular, but sometimes they are just a little too much for every day wear, unless you scale them down like Tammy did in this chandelier earring project.
