Home Sweet Home
Wow, the weekend went fast. Too fast. And now it's the day before the fundraiser and I feel like there are still a million things to do. On the bright side, it's gotten super cold here so the fact that I took the day off work and am stuck at home can easily be appreciated with some hot tea and cosy slippers.
At least I got some of the baking done. Worried that no one else would step up, I signed myself up for all 3 baking contests. Today the pies get made. Yesterday I finished the cookies and last week I put the finishing touches on the gingerbread house.
Since all these things were for OTHER people to eat (although my kids are begging to try all of it), I put no thought into the health factor. That being said, I couldn't resist using spelt flour in the cookies, instead of white, and coconut sugar instead of brown sugar. Whether those swap outs will make me lose the contest or not I don't know. In any case, it's all for fundraising purposes and fun, of course.
Okay, off to start knocking things off my to-do list. Have a great Monday!
