Oh My God Oh My God Oh My God Oh My God

The Hoedown is LESS THAN A WEEK away.
And I know I promised a "schedule of events" and the menu DAYS ago, so here it is:
1p-2p appetizers, meet and greet
2p-2:30p Pie Contest!!
2:30-3p Pie EATING contest
3:00p Food is served!
4p  Dessert is served!
then we can hang out, play badminton, drink more Sangria, paddle around in the pond and have more fun!!
Of course things may not take as long or they'll take more time. I've never hosted a Pie Contest before, and so far we have 4 pies to judge and 3 judges, so sign up via email, or just post a comment here. Then I'll have a better idea, plus I have to make labels and numbers and all that.

So be sure to be here on time, so you don't miss out on the fun!

Now for the Menu:


Sangria (made by Laura)
Strawberry (or watermelon, whichever I feel like making) Lemonade


Beer Cheese (made by Dave)
Pimento Cheese (made by Dave)
Pretzels, crackers, celery, carrot, cucumber, red pepper (all from local farms)
Bacony Deviled Eggs (made by Laura, eggs and bacon also from local farms)

all from Squeels on Wheels
Pulled beef, chicken, pork
bbq sauce

Tomato Pie (made by Laura, tomatoes, mozzarella and basil from local farms)
Macaroni and cheese (made by Laura)
cole slaw (squeels on wheels)
corn on the cob (squeels on wheels)
baked beans (made by Adrian)

Mixed Berry shortbread (made by Laura)
cookies (made by Laura and Dave)
cupcakes (made by Laura and Dave)
S'more pops (not sure about these)
Malik's Birthday cake (made by Dave and Laura AND Marlyn of Montreal Confections)

I'll work on a list of things to bring as soon as possible. It's been crazy around here with Dave and I trying to get all our A Dozen Eggs work done so we can take a little "vacation". Yesterday we delivered 244 cupcakes and a cake to TWO weddings, so we're a little tired.


  1. This sounds AWESOME!! Can't wait for Saturday!

  2. Sounds wonderful! I've been thinking about the pie contest I worry about what it will look like after 4 hours in the car. I'm most excited about that tomato pie! I saw a photo of that on your facebook it looks amazing!
