Today was Engineer’s Day at Carter’s Lake. It is a yearly event for the employees and their families of the Corps of Engineers, Carters Project and since that is where Erin works we all went. Each employee was to sign up to bring a covered dish. The meat and drinks were covered by the Corp. So….Erin signed up to carry a dessert.
Well, at 10 PM last night Erin decided to start to work on what she was going to carry. Let me tell you, 10PM is NOT the time to start. She didn’t have all the ingredients she needed and it isn’t like you can just run out to an all night grocery store around here.
So, at 7 AM this morning I was deciding what I was going to cook and carry on Erin’s behalf. All I can say is thank goodness for Christy Jordan at Southern Plate and her friend Bill Gent, a regular reader who contributed a easy dessert recipe that sounded like something I could make quickly and easily. I ran out to the grocery store, grabbed everything I needed and was done and ready to go by 10 AM!
Thanks again to Christy and Bill, you saved the day!
The kids even got to have fun swimming and playing frisbee.
