Saturday night we camped out at the orchard.  It was a cold, but cozy night around the fire!  I got an ab workout from laughing so much (which I needed after this meal).  I know this picture is a tad blurry, but I'm using it anyway because it catches the crazy excitement of the night.  Everyone loves a potluck, right?  We took a batch of sweet potato casserole–enough for 18 people and the dish was scraped clean.  The only thing I changed in the recipe was the spice factor, adding in cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.  Our friend Emily P. (a super talented singer entertainer in town) made her famous pear salad.  Maybe I'll see if she'll share the recipe someday over here.  Jason grilled the meat and John brought stuff for Peanut Butter Smores.  Wow.  Thanks for a super fun weekend!

P.S.  McClure's Orchard is having a 5K fun run this weekend during the Apple Blossom Fest.  Won't you come join me and my hunkie boyfriend?  The $25 run includes T-shirt, lunch and registration.  Partly sponsored by Break-away bikes.

P.S.S.  I'll be walking—not running.  This girl don't run…but I will be in costume!  So come walk with me!!


  1. Could you tell me where you got the boxes to make the skeleton treat boxes, I would love to make them.
