I was late. We didn’t do our “Garden Party” until yesterday and I pretty much called it dinner! We didn’t have everything, but it was enough for us!
We simply had:
- Shepherd’s Pies
- Shepherd Crook breadsticks
- Sheepfold Gates
- Wolf’s Paws (and chocolate strawberries just because we had leftover chocolate!)
I had intended to also do the cupcakes (even took them out of the freezer) but when it came down to it, I just wasn’t up to it!
I used refrigerator breadsticks. (All they had at the store were the garlic kind We really didn’t like them.) For the Wolf’s Paws, I used Pepperidge Farms Brussels cookies and Baker’s Dipping Chocolate.
I had TheBoy make the Wolf’s Paws (and strawberries) and the Gates and twist the bread sticks. I didn’t bother decorating the Shepherd’s Pies. It was cute, but I just needed to get dinner on the table!
Over dinner and then later, dessert, we talked about what each thing symbolized and that was about it. I hope next week’s is a bit more put together!
(On a completely unrelated note, today I am taking TheMadHatter to her first ortho appt for her scoliosis. I am anxious about what they have to say. Prayers are appreciated.)
