A Viking Pasty Party

Well, just got home a bit ago from our Viking Pasty-Making Extravaganza!

As I described here, our goal was to make about 100 pasties to sell at church Sunday to raise
money for our local Relay For Life which the Viking extended family walk in honor of my BIL David who was lost to lung cancer, my mom who conquered melanoma, and my SIL Peggy who is 4 weeks post-stem cell/bone marrow transplant for a rare leukemia. You can read about them here too.

Also, I found out this morning that Peggy is currently third in our entire county for online donations! And, our team as a whole currently is third overall out of 100+ teams this year.

you feel like donating to the American Cancer Society and have not yet done so, please consider going here.

Anyway, back to the fun at hand.

If you ever wondered what 7 women could do with several pounds of potatoes, carrots, onions, ground beef, flour, and Crisco, check it out:

For 7 women and about 3 hours of work (not including baking time), we should make about $300.

*sniff, sniff* Anyone hungry yet? LOL

Wow! I don't think I ever ate a pasty, but they look good. You all worked hard, hope you raise all the money you are hoping for.

Yep, I'm getting hungry. It's really funny because there's a really good smell coming from my kitchen now to go with those pictures.!
