Hello sweet ladies!!!!!
(Putting this post up on Wednesday evening)
2 1/2 days! Can't believe it and can't await! WE are going to soon know who the winner is!
I can hardly believe how fast the time has gone with our party. I have to say you ladies are sooooooooo sweet! Thank you for taking the time to come to my blog and also for giving so much sweetness to Gooseberry Patch. I know that they appreciate each one of you! The notes you have left on their blog and facebook have been so kind! Thank you so much!
Well........first off.......today my girls and I were working close to the store room in the kitchen.......this morning. We started smelling smoke. We looked all around in the storeroom and couldn't find a thing. We finally went to get one of the salad girls to see if she could smell it? Yep......she did........so we went and got one of the main chefs.......he smelt it also. So then they called maintenance. Sometimes men (not my honey) just don't move as fast as I would like to see? heehee! After some calls.....they had to shut down the kitchen and we all moved into the cafeteria. We had to wait until the fire department came to release us to go back into the kitchen. They couldn't find anything. They closed off the store room and that helped. We had to run around to get all the things plated and ready to serve the kids.
Double Chocolate-Mint Brownies

Bake at 350 degrees fort 25 to 30 minutes, until top springs back when lightly touched. Cool completely in pan.

I took a picture of the "Easiest Boston Cream Cupcakes"! Sorry it didn't turn out........but I have to tell you it was soooooo delicious! Everyone thought so in the cafeteria. We have been baking from the 101 Cupcake, Cookie & Brownie Recipes (click to pre order if you like) all this week and everything has been received very WELL! You would really like the book!
