Acorns

My group snacks this week were "acorns" made from donut holes dipped in Nutella, sprinkles, and a pretzel stick "stem". They were quick, easy and delicious! Check out Pinterest for many more fun food ideas.

Thanksgiving Appetizer

We had a Venezia (our gated community) block party last weekend where everyone brought an appetizer to share. Here is my "turkey" platter:

Halloween Dinner 2014

We had a comforting, casual dinner while waiting for trick-or-treaters (of which there were only 4 this year). The menu was mostly orange food: cheddar-potato soup, Mom's orange-pineapple jello and cornbread with honey butter. Dessert was a Heath Bar cookie.
