Bake-A-Thon and I'm Gonna Be Gone


I began baking around 6:30 AM... cinnamon buns, blueberry muffins, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin gingerbread and pig sugar cookies.

We leave this afternoon for a long weekend trip with all of my dh's family (about 16 of us). We'll be staying in a huge house in Branson, MO...the baking is my food contribution.

I'm feeling kind of gluggy right now from all the food tasting...plus it all smells good - but after awhile you're just ready for that baking smell to diminish.

I think it all turned out OK...I've made the pumpkin gingerbread before (just before serving you pour on some caramel syrup and serve with a bit of whipped cream) and it is very yummy. The pigs were from a mix and I don't particularly like the taste - maybe it's the overwhelming amount of sugar sprinkles on top. When dh was growing up his parents raised hogs - thus the reason for the pig cookies.

We plan on spending a couple of days at Silver Dollar City and then the rest of the time we'll just be hanging out together. We have been to SDC before so the kids know what to expect and are pretty excited.

We plan to be home Monday.
