Indeed, I had to go back and see what you meant.

It reminds me what I did to my poor puppy last week, I trimmed his tail & it looked like that turkey, I'm dangerous with scissors!

SO and I decided to contribute some baked goods for the sale. We had some old and tired bananas so she decided to make banana bread for her contribution. Typically she pre-measures the dry ingredients the day before then mixes and bakes early the next morning before I get up and before she goes to work.

This morning when I got up, I smelled something not typical of her banana bread. She met me at the bottom of the stairs to tell me there would be no banana bread for the bake sale.

I suspect she goofed in measuring the baking soda. Oh well, I've done worse. The oven needed cleaning anyways.
Oh dear . The gremlins get us all at some time or other.

I hope it doesn't happen to me this week. The livery clients at the stables where my horse lives are putting on a Horse Show this weekend in aid of Help for Heroes, a British charity which supports service personnel and their families with rehabilitation after serious wounds and builds and runs accomodation for families to visit and stay near the specialist units while their family members are being treated.

I'm in charge of the cake stall which is a great fund-raiser. So far I've done a dozen rich fruit cakes and a box full of ginger oat cookies. More to follow - millionaire's shortbread (butter shortbread topped with goo-ey caramel and covered in chocolate), Madeira cakes (a bit like a buttery pound cake), Bakewell tart (shortcrust pastry case wit jam in the bottom topped with almond flavoured sponge cake mix and bakes) and lots of other things.

We've done the show every year for the last 24 years for different charities and usually raise about 2000 (approx $3000? I'm not very good at maths) on the day.

Please pray for fine weather over Charlesworth, near Glossop in Derbyshire this Sunday.

Update

Thought you folks would like an update to monies raised for victims of the Marathon Bombing.

The monies raised so far have already started to be given out to the victims to help pay for funerals, medical bills, etc. Even for counseling for the victims. I have to say, there is no foolishness about this fund. Those that are handling the monies are so above board. The system for writing the checks is simple. They already know who went to the hospital and who didn't. They know who died and who didn't. The monies for the fund are still coming in. The victims with the most serious injuries will recieve the most to cover what their insurace doesn't cover. For those who were injured and only lost some time for work received monies to get by on until they could return to work. Those are the ones who were taken to the hospital and released rather quickly in order to make room for the more serious injured. There will be no waiting months and even years like 9/11 for some families.

We are Boston and we are strong. Boston Strong!

You have mine Mad Cook. We also have a number of organizations that help the military. I think it is very admirable of any group that works to assist those to whom we owe our safety and liberty. Good luck this weekend.

Thanks, Cooking Godess. You obviously pulled out all the stops in influencing the weather. The rain kept off and we had a mix of sun and cloud so it wasn't too hot. The show was a great success and we are still counting the takings and raking in the sponsorship. Bills to be paid but we think we will have plenty of dosh to hand over to the charity.
