Fair Wrap Up

Well fair is finished for another year.

Thanks to Trudy for posting a great write up
on Krista's accompolishments this year.

As you may remember from an earlier post about the cookie jar

Krista finished the jar up on Sunday afternoon. Heck she still had two days to go.

Side one of jar.... a cow

Side two of jar.... a horse

Side three of jar ...... a windmill

She baked cookies all day on Monday and into Tuesday.
She had to have four kinds of cookies.
She made snicker doodle, Oatmeal Raisin,
Cowboy Cookies and Apple Sauce Cookies.

Yes, she used Grandmother Hall's recipe for the apple sauce cookies.
 Applesauce Cookies (Grandmother Hall’s)

½ c oleo
½ c brown sugar
½ c sugar
1 egg slightly beaten
1 t soda
1 c applesauce (unsweetened)
2 c flour - not sifted
1 t cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg
½ t salt
½ t baking power
1 c chopped raisins
½ c chopped nuts
Cream oleo, sugar - add egg - blend
Add soda to applesauce and stir into mixture
Add flour
Frost with powder sugar frosting.

By the way she received a purple ribbon for in her Six Easy Bites entry, applesauce cookies!
The cookie jar was judged on Wednesday and she received a blue ribbon for it.

On Friday afternoon, after the beef show was done the auction began.
Krista sold her jar for $285.00! I think that figures out to $5.94 a cookie!

The gentleman that purchased the cookie jar is working with Keith at the ranch for the next month. I told Krista she will need to keep the jar filled, while he is getting the angus herd ready for the dispersal sale in September.

Of course Trudy just laughed at this...... as she is still waiting for her refill from two years ago.

Dani also had fun at the fair. She entered projects in the Cloverbud division and received some great ribbons.

Dani showed Ginger in the pet parade

Dani showed a sheep in the peewee show

and a goat in the peewee show.

But the most fun for Dani was

hanging out with the fair royalty all week.

I was so glad to see pictures of Dani at the fair. The only one I had was of her giving the ribbon to Krista. I really felt bad ---- as I was putting the post together the Brady Bunch episode where Jan is so jealous of Marcia kept running through my head. You know, the one where she says, "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia." Hence, the title.

Sister One said...

Do you suppose if I wore a tiara to fair next year Dani would spend time with me?

SisterTwo said...

Actually, I think Krista is more jealous of Dani. As Dani knows everyone and runs around with them and Krista feels left out a little bit.
As far as the tiara next year......I would like to see that. But truthfully she won't hang out with us either, unless we are willing to part with money for the concessions.
