Stocking Stuffers - Small gifts

I am going to be promoting smaller amounts for stocking stuffers and small gift ideas for teachers, co - workers etc. :)

Pre Thanksgiving Dinner

I am doing Thanksgiving dinner this year, as I have already told you. I am spending today preparing.

I neglected to consider seating. We will need to figure out where everyone will sit. We have a small table and 6 chairs and 14 people coming. OOPS! :)

I am also still nervous about the stuffing. I am sure it will be fine, but who knows. You never know how easy it can be to mess something up. LOL

Ok- so have a great Thanksgiving and I will post pictures after!!!

This year I am making thanksgiving dinner. Our turkey arrived today and I need to be able to get it into the deep fryer. That's right! Deep fryer!

I am also trying to decide what dessert to make. I already chose the stuffing. I am going to make an apple, sausage, fennel stuffing.

What are you all doing for the holiday???

Dessert table treats continued

As some of you know, my helper is 4. He loves Halloween and Spookly the Square pumpkin.

When I asked him what he wanted to make for the dessert table his response was Spookly's of course. (He knows the book by heart.) So, away we went planning how to make Spookly the Square Pumpkin treats.

We decided to use rice krispie treats for the bodies.

Then we cut them into something that resembled squares and dipped them in orange chocolate.

Please note the chocolate does not look that orange as we ran low on colorant. :)

We did not do eyes and arms. I got lazy. :)
We used the sprinkles instead. :)
Then green icing to make nice little stems, :)

Not perfect Spookly's but the short one was happy with them and all the kids at the party loved them!

Whoopie Pies

One of desserts I made for my dessert table was whoopie pies with chocolate marshmallow filling. IT being Halloween, we had to have pumpkin cakes.

Then of course, these are too boring and uninteresting. We had to decorate.

Thank you pinterest for the ideas! :) Love that site!!!

They turned out pretty good.

Last but not least to fill them!

The kids at the party LOVED them!

I will post more later.
