It doesn’t matter if you’re having a big holiday gathering or just a small fun-filled afternoon with a few of your friends, if your partyware is from Smarty Had A Party, it’s sure to be a blast!
Last weekend one of my girlfriends hosted a Silpada Jewelry party so I offered to bring my Smarty Had a Party Hors d’oeuvre Party Set. This Elegant Cocktail/Hors d’oeuvre Party Set included Black Plastic Plates, Mini forks, Frosted Stem Wine Glasses, Mini Crock Pots and a package of Dual Peacock Blue Napkins.
I loved the mini Crock Pots which were just too adorable, and we used them for the veggies but wouldn’t they be cool for holding a bean dip? All the items in the set, especially the Black Plates are very sturdy and can be hand washed to be used again.
As you can see from the pictures, the frosted, Stem Wine Glasses were our favorites, especially when filled with cold Apple Cider…and then later with some chilled wine!
My sponsor over at Smarty Had a Party would like to send to one of my lucky readers their own Elegant Cocktail/Hors d’oeuvre Party set, which will include the following items:
Mini Cooking Pot
Blue Dual-Sided Paper Cocktail Napkins
Reflections Mini Forks
Renaissance Black Salad Plates
Onde Wine Glasses

are you gearing up for this long Labor Day Weekend? What are your plans, will you be heading to the parks, a pool party, or just chillaxin at home? I will be doing a little grilling using the Yoshi Grill Mats, cleaning out a few closets and watching movies.
This holiday is going to be bittersweet because it’s the first one without Malik and also because it’s the last official one of the summer. I keep telling myself, “this too shall pass!”
A few weeks ago, I decided to make a Poke Cake after seeing a recipe for one online.
Hubby was a little skeptical because he had never heard of pouring jello over a cake, thinking it would be too soggy so in his mind he didn’t like it even before tasting it.
Using Duncan Hines cake mix and following the box directions I allowed the cake to cool before poking in the holes.
While the cake cooled, I made the gelatin, using Jolly Rancher Blue Raspberry for a holiday “red white and blue” theme.
Using a wooden skewer I poked random holes into the cake, stopping half way through then poured the liquid gelatin across the top.
The pan was then placed in the refrigerator for approximately three hours to set. After removing the cake from the pan it was frosted and topped with canned strawberries.
I loved it, hubby, again not so much but of course my mini men ate several slices.
Have you ever made a Poke Cake? If so, what jello and toppings did you use?
Don’t forget to come back at 6:00 for the #WWDParty.

I hope you all are enjoying this beautiful end of the summer Saturday. I know summer doesn’t officially end until September 22nd, but for some strange reason, the Middletown Old Tyme Peach Festival seems to mark the end of it for me.
The Peach Festival was actually held last weekend and Malik and I were only able to spend about an hour there. Most of the morning we were in Walmart shopping for dorm supplies so unfortunately by the time we arrived there were no peaches left!
You have to get there early to even get a slice of peach pie from the M.O.T. Jean Birch Center. The crowds were large and the weather was warm but not an oppressive heat as it had been in previous years.
A few places like The Java House and Off the Kuff were no longer in business, instead they were replaced by Jewelpalooza and Candy Connections both great shops especially for this kid-friendly town.
Thankfully, Saving Grace Christian Bookstore was still open so we popped in there for a short visit. There are so many great gift ideas so make sure to pick up something for the holidays.
Now that the fireworks from the 4th of July and the parade of the Peach festival are over, there is one last major summer event in Middletown, the M.O.T. Big Ball Marathon.
This fun, and family friendly fundraiser is held during the Labor Day weekend and then that will definitely mark the end of the Summer 2014!
Does your town have an “end of the summer festival”?
Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!
Tonight my son and his date will be attending the Appoquinimink Senior High School Prom and he will be staying out much later than he ever has. You know that I won’t get much sleep until he walks back in the door, I’ll be praying that they all have a safe and wonderful time!
Monday is Cinco de Mayo, which isn’t a major holiday in Mexico; but here in America, it’s an excuse to over indulge in Mexican food and to drink lots of beer. So in honor of this holiday, today’s Friday’s Foodie Feature is an easy recipe for Ground Turkey and Bean Burritos.
Ground Turkey and Bean Burritos
1 lb Jennie-O Ground Turkey
1 – package Burrito Seasoning Mix
1 – can of Black or Pinto Beans – drained and rinsed
4 – tortillas
1 – can diced tomatoes or jar of Salsa
1 1/4 cup of water
1 – 8 oz container of Sour Cream
Cilantro and Hot Sauce (optional)
Brown Ground Turkey on medium heat until thoroughly cooked and is no longer pink. Pour in Burrito seasoning mix, add water, stir then simmer uncovered for 6-8 minutes.
In a small bowl add drained and rinsed beans and sour cream, mix together and place in microwave for 3 minutes.
Lay out a tortilla onto a plate, spread beans onto tortilla and add about a 1/2 cup of turkey mixture in center then fold tortilla into a burrito.
Sprinkle some cheddar cheese on top then put into the microwave for 2 minutes to melt it.
Top with a spoonful of salsa or diced tomatoes and sprinkle on a little hot sauce if you wish.
Pop open a cold one and enjoy!
