Cookies Anyone?

I'm up to my eyeballs in cookies!


Cookies,


cookies,

and more cookies!
Well, 150 when all was said and done!  Phew!
Actually...
 there were 153 to be truthful but, I ate the 3 extra!
  He he, just call me Cookie Monster, YUM!
Come on, how could I have made all those cookies without
eating a few, could you have resisted? 
Somehow, I doubt it!  ;)

Why so many cookies?
Well, these cookies are for Pioneer Day, Saturday, April 30th!
 Its Transylvania Counties
(yes, I live in Trhan-sul-vaaaan-iaaa, (you must say this with your best "Dracula" accent)
and you can BITE ME!)
150th Birthday this year, our sesquicentennial (say that 5 times fast!).
The Historical Society is hosting a special Pioneer Day at the
Allison-Deaver House, a pioneer mountain home built in 1815.
It has been virtually un-altered for the past two centuries and
is the oldest standing frame house west of the Blue Ridge Mountains
of North Carolina.
During Pioneer Day, you will enjoy Civil War reenactors showcasing
formations and firing demonstrations as well as a 19th
century fashion show!  (Ooolala!)


There will be mountain music performed by local musicians on the porch,
 and tours of the Allison-Deaver House.  


Weavers, quilters, and basket makers will demonstrate the
making of their wares.


And down at the barn, visit a blacksmith, beekeeper, potter
and chickens!


There will be activities for the kids, a lunchtime BBQ, hot dog buffet,
and marshmallow roasting on an open fire.

Come on and spend a gorgeous, spring day at the Allison-Deaver House!

Saturday, April 30th from 10am - 4pm.

Oh, and in case you were wondering,
I made traditional Chocolate Chip cookies and Oatmeal Crispies.
The Chocolate Chip recipe is from the back of the Toll House
semi-sweet (the best!) bag and the Oatmeal Crispies
recipe is from The Pioneer Woman (aka Ree Drummond).
They're pretty darn tasty!

Happy Friday!
