We had a "big dipper" dip making contest and had some yummy desserts. All of the committee members made and brought food for the party too. However, I was the only one crazy/dumb enough to commit to making a spinach artichoke dip, hot bacon dip and creamy salsa cream cheese dip, as well as a strawberry poke cake, homemade Oreo cookies, a cheesecake, and witches brooms. I LOVE to cook and bake but this was an impossible feat even for me. So I employed the services of my sister in law Shanna and on Thursday night we had something of a bake off at my house. It was crazy! Gabe is currently teething and recently had an ear infection so he didn’t want daddy, but wanted mum to hold him the whole time. It was quite the experience! All in all though, the food was yummy and the party was a success. However, the question still remains...Why do I constantly do this to myself?
The cheesecake. A lady at work gave me the gummy spiders and flies to put on top.
Shanna assured me that purple and orange were Halloween colors.
I had to leave the party before we ate so I didn't get to cut the cake. (strawberry poke cake)
My witches brooms. I should have used smaller pretzels. They were still cute though.
