Hey there gang! How did your Thanksgiving go? I hope everything went well and you were able to enjoy some wonderful food and fabulous time spent with loved ones. If you are looking to for something to do with your leftovers, give this Turkey Cranberry and Sunflower Salad or this Open Faced Turkey Cranberry Provolone Sandwich a try. If you happened to make a ham here is a great recipe for Ham and Bean Soup. Or if you are just ready to go ahead and break into some Christmas cheer make some of this Creamy Dreamy Fudge. It’s creamy. And dreamy. Cross my heart and hope to die. Which is what you will do if you eat the whole pan yourself. Just wanted to throw that warning out there. Please proceed with caution.
Today I wanted to give you a little Bake Sale recap and let you know how it all went this year. The ladies in my neighborhood (some of who are pictured above) and I put on a bake sale every year the Saturday before Thanksgiving. This year we earned over $1000 and gave the money to a family whose daughter suffered a car accident and is struggling to pay medical bills. Thanks to all of you who came and supported our cause. It was so very nice to meet you.
The day of the Bake Sale is always a lot of fun and has become a family and neighborhood tradition. We always enlist the help of our kids. They especially like to take act as cashiers, taking money from people is their life goal. Ok, just kidding. But I did notice they liked this job much better than the “please run yourself home and get another platter of sweet rolls” job.
My friend Cindi’s sister brought these amazing Pumpkin Whoopie Pies. She got creative and added Chocolate Ganache in the middle. Man, they looked to die for, I tell you. Pumpkin…Cream Cheese…AND Ganache! A stroke of genius. Make them at your earliest convenience.
My friend Pam has offered up these wonderful Candy Suckers for two years running, they are always a hit with the kids.
This is My Dear Mom and my sister Jen, out to support our cause. If I had a million years to sit and tell you just how wonderful these ladies are, it wouldn’t be enough time. Truly. These ladies are the bomb dot com. Jen stayed with my kids for 8 days earlier this month while MyHandsomeHusband and I were off on a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean. She navigated piles of dishes, loads of laundry, mood swings and a little twin boy who crashed on his bike and needed ten stitches right in the middle of his forehead. I will be forever in her debt.
Have a great weekend, everyone! See you back here on Monday, I have some great new recipes to share with you all.
