We had the first planning party for the annual Spooktacular at Jason and Michelle's house. We planned the games, the treats, the food and the other activities. I am going to be in charge of the food table, this is right up my alley. I like to tend to the details.
We discussed the cost of putting this whole thing on, there is a local celebration call Whistle Stop days, we made homemade noodles a couple weekends ago for my sister to serve in their local park. It will raise money for the car club in PJ. So, it was decided that maybe we should make homemade noodles to freeze and sell at the car show. Then we talked about breads, making cream puffs and selling them. All proceeds will help fund the Halloween party. I'm making beer bread with onion in it and the best apple bread you have ever tasted. The beer bread tastes awesome with chili on a cold night, especially if there is rain, a heavy wind and you are inside all cozy and warm.
So, this Saturday we will spend another day at Deanne's baking breads and making homemade noodles. It will be a ton of fun. The event is Sept. 15th if you are in the area.
