Now a sensible person, who is creeping towards the latter part of her 40's, and is sort of living with a pre-menopausal middle-age spread (also know as muffin top, or thunder thighs, or cankles) should realize that Spring is the time for certain activities. Activities that involve preparing somewhat for the approaching season of lighter, less bulky clothes, bare legs and arms etc.
A sensible person wouldn't be attending events in late April that are called "Death by Dessert"! But then again, when have I ever been sensible. Last night a friend and I went to a Death by Dessert and Auction fundraiser.
There was a great selection of auction items
And some other stuff.....
Note the "creepy dolls"....... Our table (and several others) referred to them as Chuckie's Friends. Like clowns, I firmly believe these dolls have the potential to come to life in the night and kill you in your sleep. There were lots of funny comments and the Auctioneer almost broke a sweat trying to unload these babies. It was on the verge of begging! Finally one lady placed a small "pity bid" just so we could move on.
And so we didn't lose energy in between bidding, samples of different desserts were served throughout the evening.
It started with a bowl of a variety of chocolate barks. There was homemade toffee, root beer floats, pumpkin tarts and this.......
Candied Bacon........OMG, I am making an entire pan of this!! Cholesterol and calories be damned - this is incredible!
So this leads me to a twisted reasoning path.....based on the weather this evening I don't have to worry about summer clothes for awhile yet. This pic was taken at supper time
