We had lots of Halloween activities to go to this weekend. One of my friends invited us to her Halloween party. Her husband is an Army captain so she was trying to "do the good captain's wife thing". With army guys you never know what to expect so we arrived early, plus we had another party to go to later that night. Hostess gifts are not something I have routinely given but I thought it would be nice this time.
Last year dear Hubby's aunt was making these scratchers for extra money. I bought a bunch to have on hand for little gifts such as this. I was ho-hum when she gave me camo scratchers in the mix but they came in perfect for an army wife. I couldn't resist throwing a couple in. They work GREAT on your teflon pans.
Just a little something to say thank-you all things I had already. I think they were most excited for the apple butter. With the holidays coming I enjoy stocking up for those times when you want to give a little something. For me, this usually means last minute...so it's great to have a few fillers around to toss in a basket or gift bag. When all else fails, a nice loaf of bread, muffins or cookies works well too!
