Deadly Southern Charm
By Mollie Cox Bryan
Living in a tourist town, like Victoria Town, it seems as if we just get one celebration done, and we need to start planning the next one. Memorial Day Weekend, with its parade and annual town picnic, where we honor our local heroes, is now over. We've just stared planning the Independence Day celebration. Most towns celebrate those holidays, though, But I look forward to some of the other celebrations Victoria Town holds, like "Victoria Days,"(a week-long festival of all things Victorian) and "All Hallows Eve Ball and Masquerade." (Whew that's a mouthful--but what fun!) I'm looking forward to dressing up for the ball in something dark and mysterious, of course. You know me, In the mean time, I've been given the task to research what kind of baked goods would be appropriate because my aunt is in charge of the food this year.
Here's a list of recipes I'm researching:
Lavender Spider Web Cookies
Lady Victoria Skelton Sugar Cookies
Victorian Black Lace Tea Cookies
Gingerbread Cauldron Cookies
Looking over my list, I don't think I've ever had so much fun researching anything. And, sorry, gotta go. I'm famished.
