Gardening and baking - yep, they go together!

Post  happyfrog on 12/5/2010, 2:50 pm

Especially since my local garden center is having a christmas cookie contest! They're offering gift cards to the winners: $50, $25, $10 and $5 to everyone else. So a person HAS to enter! Smile 'Cause no matter what, one gets to have tomato plant money. *grin*

I actually entered two cookies:

Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies with a coconut cream cheese filling

and peppermint cheesecake with a gingersnap crust (baked in those itty bitty red foil wrappers wtih crushed candy cane on top)

They started judging at 2:30pm. Thinking about heading back to the garden center in the next 1/2 hour or so to find out results. *fingers crossed*

I'm hoping mine win - they're different - and unique (at least I think so).

Will share the recipes later if you all would like them. I created the coconut filling recipe earlier today on a whim and the peppermint cheesecake I created earlier this week 'cause I was feeling festive.

I got $10!!! Smile woo hoo.

they just called me.

oddly enough - some kind of ritz cracker covered in chocolate won first place....

now i'm curious what that tastes like - will have to ask the husband to buy one of those and taste it for me (i'm celiac so no gluten for me) to explain what it is like so i can learn what they like. . .

'cause i want to win first place one of these days.

Congrats on the win. $10.00 will buy several packs of seeds. Just think those seeds could yield many times their purchase price in fruit and veggies.

God Bless, Ward and Mary.

ward - you're so right!! i usually buy the plants i have trouble seed starting in january/february from this garden center - so all these little gift cards add up. We have very tight budget, (doesn't everyone?!) so this really benefits our household.

last year i used all my gift cards accumulated (i enter every contest wilson's offers 'cause every entrant receives a minimum $5 gift card; or larger prize if the winners) and that's how i bought all my green peppers and stevia, and most of my unusual seeds - like snake gourd, etc)

how are you doing ward?

Happy:

The gift cards do come in handy.

I am at my Mom and Dads in Florida where the temps will be in the low 20's for the next several nights. I expect my garden in Virginia to be wiped out by the time we get home later in the week as the temps there are expected to be as low or lower. I still had one tomato plant (stunted by frost) producing a few small green toms that I added to soup before we left along with the last bell peppers. So good by toms till late spring. About the only thing that may be left will be frozen onions and carrots in the tower bed. I guess the temps may slow my box building down a bit as we expand from the fall crop. Ah well I did need a break, but, box building is so much fun.

God Bless, Ward and Mary.

i do hope you have a good visit with your mom and dad.

wow - so neat! i never htought of putting my green tomatoes in soup - pls share basics - how many tomatoes per pot of soup and does anythikng go veggie wise with green tomatoes?

the nice thing i've noticed is the frost makes the plants even easier to remmove from the beds. i was a real slacker in my garden this past fall.

do you just keep the onions in your garden and pull when you need or did you just run out of time to harvest?

always fun to learn new tips from you!

have a safe drive home again. . . .
