One day a year, Josh and I are in charge of the stand and yesterday was that fateful day. In fact, as I sit and type I should tell you that my right index finger is numb from using tongs to pull corndogs from the fryer, and I can still smell the remnants of grease in my hair…oh the things we do to raise money for the kids we love!
I thought you should get a glimpse into my grease-filled 12-hour day of fun!

|Mindy Morse showing off her selling skills|
|Studhubs unloading boxes of weiners...there is no way to make that sound proper.|
|My goal for this picture was to show you just how many people we cram into a tiny hot box...you can't tell, but most of the night the answer to that question was 6|
After surviving my 12-hour shift in the corn dog stand, I must tell you that I am ever grateful for a new venture – Funky Freezer Girls! Like the name? All credit goes to my sister Leslie for putting this group together – after reading about a group on facebook with the same name. It is simple.
My sister asked 6 friends with families similar in size if they would each want to make 2 meals 8 times and then freeze them. It’s a version of batch-cooking…only it’s not. We realized that if we each just made a large amount of 2 meals we would save a lot of time & then we could share with one another!
For example, I made 8 servings of Chicken Enchiladas & Barbeque Chicken Pizzas! Here is a glimpse into my day of cooking
So, this is what my kitchen looked like at the end of our afternoon of cooking - oh my!
What I especially love is that we each made an extra helping of our meals and are giving them to Maggie (Abby’s sister) who can use the extra help right now as her sweet baby girl has been in and out of the hospital a lot this year. Speaking of – you should go check out Brynne Smiles! And perhaps you should start your own Funky Freezer Girls!
