Well folks once again it is that time of year! County fair.....corndogs, funnel cakes, lemonade, spiral spuds, 4h food stand, and carnival rides! Boy have I had a crazy week to try to stuff to enter for the fair. My father had a heart attack last weekend
and ended up in the hospital all week. They won't be doing any surgery until the following week. But he is staying up there close to where he needs to be. Now my dad is one of those guys who doesn't go to the doctor for anything, he is never ever sick. Maybe
the occasional cold, but never anything major. So it has been a huge shock to my brain to see him like this. On top of that, I had to deal with the health inspector showing up where I am the assistant manager at a grocery store. Then I have been taking my
daughter down to the town where she will have to get her license so she was familar with the streets. The DMV is only open every other week there and this last Friday they were going to be open. She wanted to have her license so that this year she wouldn't
have to ride the bus anymore. Well school starts the 18th, so I had this small window to work with!! Then I after taking her out driving, I was baking my assortment of things to enter in the fair! Then I am working at the library today, then at the store on
Sunday, then my Dad's surgery on Monday!!! Thank God I am a praying woman because God has had to help me deal with all the guilt from not being up at dad's side this whole time, and the migraines from all the stress I have been feeling. But things are going
to be fine! I have to be positive! My daughter ended up passing her test yesterday, so watch out world!!! I entered all my fair food this morning and I talked to my momma and everyone is good up at the hospital! I always believe that God will not give you
more than you can handle. And I wasn't going to even enter anything in the fair, but baking is very theraputic for me, and it helped destress me. And what did I enter in the fair this year you ask?
Well, my mom's coffee cake ( she has made it for years and it is fantastic!), fudgy brownies, white chocolate cashew blondies, zucchini bread, pumpkin struesel muffins, gingerbread bread machine bread, buttermilk bread, whole wheat bread, challah bread, decadent
chocolate cake, and a apple crumble pie! Everything really turned out well this year! My challah bread was absolutely gorgeous! I am very excited to find out how I did!!
Well fellow all recipes family I hope you all have a less stressful time as I had this week! Keep the comments coming! And if you need any of my recipes for my fair food, let me know!!
