I have a friend that always says, "It's Friday and then it's Friday". That is certainly the way this week has been. Remember last week we packed up my friend Linda for her move. Which went great and she is doing great. This week I helped a friend of a friend pack on Wednesday. I wonder if Mayflower Moving and Storage needs any help. I am over the moving business. I'm back to cooking and blogging.
This week we are getting ready for our annual church auction. We call it The Lord's Auction. The church has held this auction every year for 60 years. There will be so many cakes, pies, candy, quilts, shawls, crafts, country hams, home canned vegetables, pickles and preserves, etc. you will not know what to buy first. The Jam Cakes always seem to bring the most money in the food department. I have seen them bring $200.00 for one cake. I wish everyone of you could come. We always seem to have a picture perfect fall day. Everyone is outside eating hot dogs and pimento cheese sandwiches.
This year my contributions will be Apple Cakes In a Jar, Roasted Tomato and Black Bean Soup, Tomato Preserves, Blackberry Cobbler and Peach and Blueberry Cobbler.
Each year the item that I look forward to most is Mr. Fuller's Creamed Candy. Mr Fuller was my first Sunday School teacher. He is in his 80's and still makes the best candy there is, among other things.
It just makes me feel good to be able to be a part of all these wonderful old traditions. Wish you were all here. If you have time stop by.
