About Me

My photo

Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Scribbles and Scrambles ~ Successfully Pinked Post-1,000 Cooks for the Cure Report

Our 1,000 Cooks for the Cure dessert party went pinkingly well last night. 

I don't have a total number on donations yet, but 12 ladies (and two men and one child) attended. Two other ladies gave donations prior. 

I'll share recipes later, and totals, too. However, I want to share a few pictures and some of the activities and ideas we enjoyed. 

All our desserts were Vegan with minimally processed or organic ingredients. Because we think that is an important part of avoiding cancer. Not a silver bullet, but what we eat affects us systemically. 

Stress and chemicals and ingredients we slather on our body are other areas we can help control. & helped everyone who wanted to make a scrub with sunflower oil, sugar or salt and essential oils. Scrub and relax with safe ingredients. She also found an Erma Bombeck quote for a bookmark. 

"Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the 'Titanic' who waved off the dessert cart."

We played a few games, too. 

Pin the accessories on Accessa-Annie.  And the following song titles "I Will Survive" "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" and "Beat It." became a word find game. One of the girls found 27 words in two minutes. & didn't allow any proper nouns or any of the words in the songs titles, either. Tough game. 

Finally, we snacked on Peas and Thank You's Black Bean Brownies and frosting, Alicia Silverstone's Cupcakes, my creations Pirate Booty Cookies, Snickerdoodles, Lemon Bars, Orange Cookie Cups filled with Chocolate Ganache, Mint Chocolate Filled Dark Chocolate Shells, Lemon Glazed Ginger Poke Bars, and a fruit salad. 

More details to follow.
