Tonight is the daycare fundraiser. I have had butterflies since I woke up yesterday morning. But now I'm freaking out about something else: One of the board members, and a good friend of mine, was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery yesterday! Nothing like something like that to put things into perspective! So what the fuck if the whole thing bombs tonight??? I just hope she's going to be okay. But it does mean that she and her wife will not be able to come to the fundraiser. Sheesh, if they didn't want to come, there are easier ways to get out of it. Ha ha!
Anyways, I have had lots of great people helping me so I think just maybe we will be able to pull it off.
And in the midst of it all, I was able to bake stuff for the contests. Along with the gingerbread house, I made these cookies.
I used Mom Who Runs' favorite recipe and just swapped out white flour for whole spelt and brown sugar for coconut sugar. I went out and bought white sugar just for this recipe...not sure what I'll do with the rest, I'm thinking maybe homemade facial scrub?
I also made these pumpkin pies.
I just used the recipe on the can of pumpkin (and again swapped out brown sugar for coconut sugar). For the crust, I made a standard graham cracker one, but threw in some chopped, crystallized ginger to dress it up a bit.
Off to get started on my to-do list for today! Have a great chilly Tuesday.
