Chaos Revisited

Wow this weekend went from crazy to crazier! I did eventually finish my baking.  I even had fun doing it AND recieved an offer of help from my hubby.  I didn’t take it but it was nice that he offered.  The oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies were a great hit at the guys night thing.  I had several of the men come up to me after church commenting on how they had never seen anything like that before and it was AMAZING.  Just the reaction that makes me giddy. Luckily I made a double batch and took some to the potluck where they went over equally as well.

I also made Butterfinger Brownies. When I went to cut them after they had cooled I realized I had blackend on the bottoms. Which resulted in  me bursting in tears. That was really the second time I’ve ever burned anything. However I became suddenly inspired when I realized that the bottom was the only thing burned. So I rolled the salvagable parts of the brownies into balls and dubbed them “Brownie bites”!  They went over famously well also.

Last but not least I also made Bacon wrapped jalapenos that were stuffed with cream cheese.  I cannot tell you how painful this one was.  It seems my skin does not at all like jalapeno juice. So by the time I had halved and de-seeded 40 jalapenos my hands looked like they were sporting bright red fingerless gloves, and they felt like they are on fire. FINALLY I think I have rid myself of the burning.  Let me tell you, the burning was well worth it. I took 80 peppers to the potluck and came home with a dozen.  They were a huge hit! I was really surprised.

Over all great weekend. Yesterday I found myself caught up with sorting and editing all the pictures I managed to take around the event.  It took me the better part of the day.  How was your weekend? Did you take a relaxing route for your plans? Or maybe a more filled and busy route?
