Here we are….all dressed up for the Burkett Volunteer Fire Department’s annual fundraising BBQ. There is a bake sale to go along with all the great food.
My contributions are a “Triple Lemon Delight” cake (on the left) and round 2 version (with zest!) of the “Orange Chiffon Cake”. Just the color and the smell of the cake tell me the zest was a wonderful thing! Thanks to all who suggested it. The original recipe does call for zest. I just missed adding it to the first cake. Duh. I may have to purchase my own cake just to be able to taste it!
If you’re within our area, come on out. Food is served from 5-8 PM and the monies raised will go to helping rig out our new-to-us 5 ton brush truck. It needs the skid unit which runs a conservative $25,000 with water tank, hoses, pumps and all the necessary stuff to fight fires.
Burkett Christian Life Center, Burkett, TX (on State Hwy 206 between Coleman and Cross Plains.) There are signs up on the highway and we’d love to see you there! Meal includes Brisket, Chicken, Sausage, potato salad, coleslaw, pinto beans. all the trimmings, dessert and a drink for $7.00 adults, $5.00 children 12 and under. Lots of great opportunity items/door prizes. Tickets $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00. And you can even have your picture taken on a Fire Truck, lol!
