Tomorrow is my office's charity bake sale. We are selling baked goods at the North Tonawanda Farmer's Market come rain or shine (it's supposed to be a wet rainy day tomorrow) and all proceeds go to Share Our Strength's Great American Bake Sale. I whipped up several treats for the sale - marble rice krispie treats and a double chocolate chocolate chip cupcake.
Kitchen counter all set for our baking session... Lori is my baker's assistant extraordinare.
Lori caught this of me all ready with my loyal spatula and husband busy doing work on his PC in the background.
Cupcake inspiration -
This cupcake was supposed to resemble Cookie Monster, but this time round - my cupcake batter turned out much more "fluffier" than I anticipated and it was a lot of work trying to get frosting onto the cupcake. Should have gone with my usual muffin/cake batter. Big thanks to Lori for getting frosting over those cupcakes and a real blue monster finally emerged.
It may not have been Cookie Monster from Sesame Street, but it was still a Cupcake Monster :P

It has been exactly one month since we received keys to our new nest and what better time to celebrate our new home with a housewarming party with family and friends. It was a beautiful and warm Saturday to be outside grilling and picnicking. Here are pictures from the party.

We are all moved in to our home sweet home. Peter and I are settling in nicely and getting our routines down. It is a much bigger space than the previous townhouse and we love the new neighborhood (which is sill the same neighborhood just 3 miles from the old place :P)
