This weekend has been extremely busy. The whole week was, actually.
First, I made 5 batches of cookies, the recipe of which supposedly came from the 16th century, for a themed party at a local business on Thursday night. That took up most of my week there. Then, of course, there was going to the party Thursday night.
Friday night was a birthday party for Conall’s Aunt.
And then Saturday I started making hamburgers and french fries for dessert for a party I threw today. Yes, I said dessert.
Of course, me being me, I couldn’t do it with box mixes, so I made my family recipe pound cake as the cupcake buns, and then found a really good recipe for brownies here, and so made that for the meat filling. I also decided to thinly slice some strawberries and use them as “tomatoes”. The “fries” were made from a family recipe short bread cookie. The only thing I used that was store bought was vanilla icing. I’ve not really made icing yet, so didn’t want to push my luck too much. After all, the brownies were the first time I ever made brownies from scratch.
This is how it ended up. I think it turned out well, what do you think?
