Today was a really busy day. Even more than our normal Saturdays, so that’s pretty busy!
It started out for me to make a huge bowl of dessert for a funeral that we had planned to go to in the morning. We are the chairperson for our local church group and with our circle up for the funeral, we all knew that we needed to bring a salad or dessert for the meal.
Then I needed to also make a double batch of bars to share for a stew supper after the funeral that was also being held at our church. I made some of Ma’s Bars and threw them in the fridge to get the chocolate firm and all the butter in the crust to set up. With 2 sticks of butter, 2 packages of chips, 2 cups of pecans, 2 cups of coconut, and then 2 can’s of sweetened condensed milk, well it’s probably just 2 fattening. No wonder they taste so good!
So at the end of the day we went to church from 10 am to 2:30 to work at the funeral and then came home to change and headed back to sell tickets before mass and then worked at the stew supper until around 8:30 or 9:00 that night.
When we were trying to decide if we should go uptown or not after the stew supper we decided to head home and take our shoes off for the day. Good decision.
