Apple Dumplings for the Cure!

I just had to share the yummy apple dumplings I made this morning! We are getting an early start to fundraising for the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life that we will participate in next spring. To celebrate Johnny Appleseed's birthday, we had an apple theme smorgasbord today. Everyone who wanted to participate brought in an apple dish of some sort. There were yummy chicken salads with apples in them, several desserts, ambrosia, and pulled pork that was cooked in apple juice....I think. Everything was very tasty! I made my apple dumplings....they are always a hit when I make them. They are best hot out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top! No ice cream today, but they were still good! Here they are...:)

If you would like to have the recipe, leave me a comment!  So, does your school participate in the ACS Relay? If so, I would love to hear some of your fundraising ideas....:) This is such a worthy cause....cancer has taken so many lives. Last year at this time, my father-in-law was battling lung cancer that had metastasized to his brain. Unfortunately he lost the battle exactly four months after he got the diagnosis. He passed away on December heart still aches over the loss my family suffered. I know many, if not all, of you have probably lost someone to cancer or know someone who is currently battling it. The Relay for Life is such a fun way to raise money for the cure. If your school has never participated, you should check into it....:) I can't wait to find out the theme for out October smorgasbord! Too fun...:)
Thanks for stopping by!

Be Blessed!

  2. Our school participates in Relay for Life. We have themed lunches, too. Also, we pay for jean days and the money goes to ACS. Good luck with your fundraising this year!
