I had a blast at the GMG/Bodin Photo Spring Fling. Happy to get to meet everyone and hang with the GMG crew. If you were there hopefully you got to have one of the pink lemonade jello shots I made before they were all consumed.
Here’s the very simple step by step recipe:
(Makes about 40 jello shot slices)
What you’ll need:
1 package of jello ( I used strawberry/banana)
1 cup of vodka
1. Wash Lemons, cut in half, and scoop out fruit (I put the lemon guts in the freezer for future use)
2. Place lemon haves upright in a cake pan or similar pan (make sure it fits in the fridge)
3. Follow the directions on the Jello box and make the Jello, but instead of 1 cup cold water, replace with 1 cup vodka
4. Once jello is mixed pour into the lemon “cups”, try to fill to brim
5. Put in fridge to set (usually 4 hrs)
6. When Jello is firm take out and use a sharp knife to slice the halfs in half, so you have nice 1/4 slices.
Some Notes: The Jello will take on the flavor of the lemon rind & vodka. Depending on the size of the lemons you may need another Jello box to fill all 10 lemons. You can also use limes or oranges- try red jello & limes and add black sesame seeds to look like little watermelon slices.
I think for our next GMG shindig I’ll make Orange Jello shots with Vanilla vodka- A la Creamsicles!
Paul (I’m Horny For Ducks) Morrison will be bringing some of Ryan and Wood’s Knockabout Gin, Sista Felicia promises she’s making something special, Kim Smith is bringing scallops wrapped in bacon, Alicia Cox from Mamie’s Kitchen is Bringing her world’s greatest coffee rolls and to-die-for linguica.
It’s a BYOB or appetizer party. Come on down and have a blast withyour favorite GMG personalities. There will be autograph signings, you can get your picture taken with a rubber duck and a whole lot more (and who could resist that?)
If anyone wants to buy a “This is Gloucester” DVD let me know and I’ll bring some, or if anyone wants one of EJ’s calendars or Sharon’s Calendars or if one of our contributors has a certain print you would like to have them make up for you let us know.
The party hosted by the awesome Fred Bodin starts at 6:30PM at his joint at 82 Main Street in the heart of Beautiful Gloucester MA.

Norm Graham of Gloucester, who designed this loon out of bass wood, is one of about 100 vendors taking part in the March 20 Spring Fling Fair at O’Maley Middle School to raise money for a wheelchair van for Cherylann Parker.
Celebrate the arrival of spring on Saturday, March 20 by coming to the Spring Fling Fair, hosted by the O’Maley Middle School in Gloucester, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
In part, the fair will raise money to equip and modify a wheelchair van for Cherylann Parker, a longtime Gloucester educator who was injured in a horseback riding incident last fall.
The fair is geared toward families, with fun for all ages.
The Easter Bunny will drop by for photos and kids can also participate in “hands-on” art tables including sand designing, making sea shell magnets, and planting seedlings. The interactive arts tables are sponsored by the Gloucester PTO’s. Face painting will be available from 1 to 4 p.m. and over 100 vendors from across Cape Ann and the North Shore will sell their arts and crafts.
I am hoping you can help get the word out about this Saturday’s Spring Fling Craft Fair from 10a-4p at O’Maley School. The flyer is attached.
The purpose of the event is to raise funds to provide handicapped accessibility for Cherylann Parker, the Veterans’ principal who was seriously injured in a fall.
Well over 100 craft vendors are participating and the elementary school PTOs are providing fun (and affordable!) craft activities such as sand art, making magnets, etc. The O’Maley PTO is providing yummy food and snacks! It is terrific that all the PTOs are coming together to help pull off this event.
So come on down to O’Maley on March 20 and show your support. It promises to be a great time!!! -From Erika Hansen
