It’s the weekend! I write that while doing a little dance, bobbing my head back and forth, and smiling a huge-ass smile that knows no boundaries. I’ve been waiting all week for this. No plans, nowhere I have to be, nothing that must be done; it’s a dream come true. My only must-be-completed task for the day is to buy pumpkins. I think I can handle that. B.O.B. Bob, Brenna, and I are definitely making this “jack-o’-lantern” to place outside, because Halloween is only a few days away, and we are super excited for it to come.
I really, really, really want to win this sweepstakes. I’ve been entering every single day in hopes that my wish to be the lucky triumphant one will come true. You can enter to win a $1,000 gift card, plus $500 to donate to the charity of your choice.
Speaking of contests, don’t forget to vote for Balsamic Deviled Eggs with Pancetta in the Eggland’s Best “Your Best Recipe” Contest. The voting will close on October 31st, and you can vote once every twenty-four hours per email address. Vote daily with as many email addresses as possible. We’re all keeping our fingers, toes, and paws crossed here at The Delawder Matthews for a big win, but we need your help to achieve it. CLICK HERE to vote.
Once again I opened the pantry door to have something fall out on me. This time around it was Stonewall Kitchen’s Farmhouse Pancake & Waffle Mix, which was included in the auction basket from last year’s Washington Capitals B.O.B. Bob “won” for me. I will never be that girl who chooses to order pancakes; they’re just not my thing. Instead I’m going to use the mix to make some cookies, using this Pecan Butterscotch Cookie recipe as a guideline, because I am that girl who takes one ingredient and uses it for something other than what it was intended for.
All of next week is dedicated to Halloween here at Faith, Hope, Love, & Luck. If you don’t like it, go someplace else, because it’s our big holiday, and we’re going to celebrate it HUGE! We don’t need to share our candy with any Halloween Scrooges! We have lots of Tricks & Treats in store for you, and perhaps a few pictures of Brenna in costume if I survive the mauling that is sure to take place.
