I've been busy with creating some new fun and colorful cookies.
Butterflies are in abundance.
We visited the Washington County Fair in Lake Elmo. It was SO fun!! The kids had a great time!
Well. Except for that whole corneal abrasion thing.
But before we ran out of there with me praying out loud over and over and over and trying not to drop the deep fried cheesecake, we got to see this…
Its official! No one else in the state of Minnesota is entering the 'decorated sugar cookie' division of the county fairs!
Will you indulge me for a moment? I feel the need. I feel the need to share something really personal with you.
This is my 'work station'. (aka the piece of parchment paper I decorate on at the dining room table)
It is a horrific mess of frosting that will never find its home on a cookie.
There. I feel better now.
I do have a special treat for everyone that made it through this whole post without falling asleep.
Remember that I mentioned deep fried cheesecake? This is it. I ordered mine with fresh from a can blueberries.
It was so worth the 13 minute wait and the $7 dollars.
