Make My Day Smoked Salmon From Den Thank You!

image

My brother-in-law Den sent me some yummy smoked salmon for Christmas.

Small batch smoked is like small batch good quality whiskey!

image

Here it is with on whole wheat mini bagels and cream cheese (on my favorite Skyline chili plate from my brother Sam).  The word divine is appropriate.

Add this excellent wine suggested to me by my friend Mary and you have the perfect late night snack.   The wine is wonderful, smooth and dry with a lovely blueberry finish.

There are two more boxes of smoked salmon, guess I will have to go buy more wine!

Thank you Den for the perfect “make my day” late night snack!

Voodoo Doughnut Doll, raised yeast with raspberry filling, slathered in chocolate and stabbed with a pretzel stake.  Yum!

Bacon Maple Bars, raised yeast with maple frosting and bacon on top.  These were split among our 5 huge dogs and they also gave it 20 paws up, woof!

Happy Halloween!

Simpson United Methodist Church is having a Trunk or Treat event October 30th from 3:30 to 7:00pm. There will be vehicles in the church parking lot decorated for Halloween.  The neighborhood children will be able to go from trunk to trunk for a safe Halloween experience.

My talented daughter decided to decorate a pumpkin for the event. ¬†Yikes, I would have never been able to put this together, it is even cuter in person. ¬†Buster demanded to be in the picture, note his goofy smile as he tries to mimic the pumpkin witch ūüôā

Here is the back of the pumpkin witch.

We picked up our pumpkin from this pumpkin patch (located on the corner of Wadsworth and 68th in Arvada) so we were able to do a double donation!
