Annual Burns Halloween Party

Hello Friends!

It is that time of year again. I love it! Look forward to it every year. Leaves changing, weather changing, love it all!!! With Fall comes our annual Halloween Carnival.

It is going to be Sat. October 20 from 4:30-6:30ish. We are going to do it at the park just north of Walgreen's this year. It's an awesome park with lots of tables and room.

Here's how it works. Everyone is invited. The more the merrier.

We have dinner...I provide hot dogs, buns and homemade root beer. You provide the sides and the desserts. They can be Halloween related or not. We aren't picky.

Every family needs to bring some sort of game/activity/booth to share as well. It is always so fun to see fun games people bring. We have had photo booth, face painting, pumpkin bowling, a cake walk, bobbing for doughnuts, bean bag toss, etc. The possibilities are endless.

 So in order to avoid have duplicate games, it has worked well to have everyone email me and let me know what game you are planning. Also to let me know what you are bringing for potluck (like side, dessert, condiments, main dish, etc) so that we don't have too many of one thing.

It's FUN. It's FREE. It's for the FAMILY! It doesn't get any better than this.  Please email me if you are interested (stef.burns at so we can get this thing started.

Recipe Group: Apples, Apples!!

I love Fall!! And it is almost here. Whoot!

This month for recipe group we are using apples.

It can be a new recipe. Something old. A technique you have never used or one you are an expert at. Appliscious is the name, eating it is our game.

This month it will be next Tues, Sept 11 at 12:00pm at Kellie H.'s house...the new one.

Let's try something new, shall we. One of the reasons we have this group is to share recipes...that way you know what the recipe tastes like and can decide if you want to add it to your favorites or quietly hope you never have to taste that again.

If possible, can you send me (stef.burns at your recipe before hand that way I can have it to put on the blog. You can take a picture of the recipe, type it out, send me the link. I am not picky. Just want to be able to share all the yumminess that you have to offer. If you forget to send it before hand, just bring a copy of it to the recipe group. And if you still forget, just send me an email.

Let's share our apple recipes! See ya there!!!
