I simply adore when Foodbuzz picks my wild ideas for their 24,24,24 event. I love it even more when it supports a cause. This month’s theme was “Kids Table”and supports Frigidaire’s part in Save The Children.They also have a way for you to take part here, that’s fun (and free)and you get a chance to win something, yourself-too.Take a second and check it out…
Okay, you’re back. Anyway….
What better way to be a kid again than to have a good old fashioned lemonade stand? I kicked it up a notch and added a bake sale, too. Because I wasn’t busy enough planning a luxury dinner party and I am crazy.
I managed just fine, though…without going completely insane, I may add.
I really worked the lemon theme. Hard.
Lemon Bars: (recipe to come)
I went all out for the lemonade, too.
Lemons were on sale.
My parents drove by. They waved. AND DIDN’T STOP.
I had to keep my cool, and make up excuses for them. I hate doing that.
We waited, and waited… there was some company…
….and we kept waiting…
Public Service Announcement:
If you see kids trying to sell lemonade:
Then some more kids showed up…
And then, finally…
I had decided at the very start that all proceeds would go to Save The Children.
I found out that if you donate $20 or more, you get a certificate. (The girls would love that)
So…with the $6 we made, my $8 that I had to make change ,and my hubby’s loot in his wallet…we had $20 bucks.
When the certificate comes, I will add it to this post.
There was, after-all, a luxurious feast the night before… so I was ready to relax.
