We also planned fun games for the kids who attended our party. We did a pin the smile on the skeleton, let the kids pick and decorate pumpkins from our "patch", played Halloween Bingo, had a pumpkin pinata, and had some other Halloween crafts. Plus the kids just love running around our yard. We also played Left, Right, Center with the adults. It is a dice game where everyone needs $3 singles to play. Tom's aunt was the big winner!
The weather was absolutely perfect for Fall Y'All and I think it might become a Tom & Jamie tradition, We enjoyed sharing our little piece of the country with our families.
I've also been using the Cooking for a Cure Cookbook to try out some of the recipes from my family and friends who contributed to the book. I made Linda Mitchell's Balsamic Glazed Chicken with Pearl Onions (Tom loves pearl onions, it is a Thanksgiving necessity for him) and Stevi's Slow Cooker Beef Stew. Both were delicious and I am so appreciative of everyone who helped make my cookbook dreams come true. I also made Zucchini Pancakes, so delicious. You can find Ina's Garten's recipe here! Whether you gave me a recipe, bought a cookbook, or both I am so thankful that I was able to create this special collection in memory of my mom. Plus I am thrilled about the baskets Stevi and I created for our two families affected by cancer. I hope they enjoy their "Ultimate Days of Fun" that we were able to put together from Crocheting, Crafting, and Cooking for a Cure this year.
