Acorn Dough Nuts

This weekend was busy busy but lots of fun On Friday I went to a dessert and appetizer party, the first of the holiday season! I scoured the internet and cook books to find something both creative as well as inexpensive and edible.

I think it's so cute for fall and perfect bite size pieces! I also made a cream cheese frosting as a dipping sauce because it needed a little somethin' somethin'.

Hmm well, they didn't turn out exactly like the picture.....Unfortunately the store only had cinnamon and frosted doughnuts so this was as close as I could get. I added crushed walnuts to the toffee bits topping for an added nutty taste. Next time I probably wouldn't crush the pieces so small I think the toffee was a little lost.

At the party:

We also learned how to make these Thai egg rolls... so easy, SO SO DELICIOUS!

Yum Yum. Can't wait to try this out myself!

We had a work party on Saturday where I got to talk to many of the wives of the men who work with Aaron. Since it's just me and M most of the time here I've started to crave any chance to socialize with other people. I've become quite good friends with the other moms in the mother's lounge at church because of the time we spend in there, ha! We're all meeting for lunch this week which I'm really looking forward to.

Alright, it's dinner time for the little one so I'll have to post my Focus of the month later. If you do this as well, be thinking of yours, I'd love to hear them!
