Family Outing: Jacksonville Zoo 6/10/2017

Well a couple of weeks ago I mentioned that we had a special outing planned. Unfortunately we did not get to go the weekend we planned to go because of the weather. We did go this past weekend and it was so much fun!

As you can imagine trying to take a many kids as we did (we took 7 kids, ages 4-14) can be a bit daunting but we managed. One of my sisters was also able to join us which helped out alot. Continue reading “Family Outing: Jacksonville Zoo 6/10/2017”

Eggless Nutella Muffins

This recipe came about one Wednesday morning when I had not been to the grocery store in over a week. It was one of those days where I was feeling like a walkie zombie too. I had been tempted just to make some toast spread it with peanut butter and sliced apples for breakfast. My four year old would have no part in that because it was ‘muffin day’.

I knew I didn’t have any eggs, as I hadn’t bought any in a while nor had I checked the henhouse yesterday. That’s what happens when you don’t stay on routine around here. I did have mayonnaise though so I knew there was hope. Below is the recipe, that I thought was an utter fail at first, and I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does.

These could be made with eggs if you wanted to. Just replace the mayo and water with 2-3 eggs. You could probably also add in some white chocolate chips or nuts if you wanted to make these as a special treat. These are rich enough that they could probably be considered dessert!

These little yummies have a lot of potential and I’m sure you may see them popping up in various forms in upcoming recipes. Continue reading “Eggless Nutella Muffins”

Hot Dog Cookies

This was another recipe that I made for the Chili Dog Dangle Dance that we had on June 9th for the Silver Fox Squares. These were probably the most talked-about cookies that night! I will definitely be making them again and probably tweaking the method a little bit more.

The kids had a lot of fun with these and I did too. I think I may try using shortbread dough if I can find it, the next time. I may also experiment with a couple of homemade cookie doughs until I can find one that I am really happy with.

I did find this idea on Pinterest and you can click here for the original recipe. (I found the Hot Dog Stand on Amazon.) Continue reading “Hot Dog Cookies”

S’mores Dip

This was another recipe that I made for the Chili Dog Dangle Dance that we had on June 9th for the Silver Fox Squares. I did not find the graham cracker sticks mentioned in the original, I did, however, find some Scooby-Doo snacks which looked like doggie treats, so I decided to just use regular graham crackers and they worked out fine.

I found this recipe on my Facebook feed. Click here for the original link. Continue reading “S’mores Dip”

Watermelon Cupcakes

I made these for the Chili Dog Dangle Dance that we had on June 9th for the Silver Fox Squares. They were so good and fairly easy to make. Not too mention that they are pretty cute if you don’t tip them over on the way.

For future reference, I will try to frost the cupcakes when they arrive at the location instead of frosting them and transporting them. I did find this idea on Pinterest and you can click here for the original recipe.

The kids can help with this one and make it a bit more fun. Continue reading “Watermelon Cupcakes”

Chili Dog Dangle Dance

We had such a wonderful time! The hot dog cookies, watermelon cupcakes, and S’mores dip were a great hit and I’ll be sure to post these recipes and ideas soon! (Or you can check out my Pinterest page and see the Parties: Chili Dog Dance for some of the inspiration for these treats.)

Silver Fox Squares Square Dance Club

We had such a great time on Friday, June 9th, at our Chili Dog Dangle Dance. We had several visitors from other clubs and everyone had great big smiles on their faces. It was great to see everyone having so much fun!

Some of us went to Powell’s Dairy Freeze after the dance for ice cream and more laughs!

We want to thank everyone who attended for making this dance such a success. We really enjoyed having you join us for food, fun, and fellowship! We also want to thank our club members who provided the wonderful refreshments. Everything was delicious!

Several people ordered dangles which should be here soon. I will post a picture of the Dangles when they arrive.

Below are some pictures from the dance. You can also check us out on Facebook to see some video clips. Be sure to come visit us at our next…
