It’s a Grand-Opening Celebration!
Yes… in only 2 weeks… we will be celebrating our new studio space! Please join me at the opening of our new Studio Space that I’ll be sharing with Alicia Danzig of Lulu Painting.
Yes, it is the final rush of completing our colorful little studio and filling it with lovely things in time for a party to take place! There is still so much to be done. In amongst painting, designing and taking care of our clients, we are also planning the final details for the delightful evening we have in store for you!
The event will be held from 7-9 pm with optional preview shopping from 6-7pm. Enjoy a tour of the Semple Mansion and it’s other wonderful businesses, music, happy drinks, special desserts, toasts and giveaways! (We’re giving away lots of lovely things… services, self-care, jewelry, special treats.)
There is free parking located across the street from the Semple in the Park Nicollet parking lot. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at; email@example.com or call me at: 763-441-6950.
So, please come, bring a friend, tour, mingle, shop, eat and celebrate with us in our Opening Gala!
Looking for a dinner idea that is quick and easy and reminds you of summer? Try these Ground Turkey Burgers- simple to make and even easier to eat! I did them in a grill pan, as the weather wasn’t quite dry enough for grilling, but they would turn out fantastic on the outdoor grill as well.
1 lb ground lean turkey
1 Tbsp dried chives
2 Tbsp minced fresh basil
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp chipotle pepper
1/3 cup diced green pepper
1/4 tsp dried California-style garlic
Beat egg in medium bowl, adding in seasonings. Add ground beef and green pepper and mix very well. (Use hands if needed) Shape into 4 large or 6 medium burgers. Spray grill pan with a bit of olive oil and pre-heat. Cook in grill pan over med-high heat for about 8-10 min per side for medium-size burgers and 10-12 minutes per side for larger-size.
Serve on whole wheat buns (toasted lightly is best) with a dollop of mayo, fresh sliced tomato, romaine leaf lettuce and roasted red pepper slices. A yummy side-dish could be a crisp oriental salad or crusty onion rings. (or both!)
Enjoy and let me know what you think!
