~Our Abraham Lincoln celebration~ we celebrated Abraham Lincoln's 200th birthday today. (See below post for more details!)
I went to google and googled "Abraham Lincoln Desserts" and an interesting sight came up.
We found out that Abraham Lincoln's favorite beverage was: WATER
And His all time favorite dessert was: APPLE PIE
So, I decided that we would make that for our dessert on his special day. (I know that his apple pie was probably a normal apple pie, but I've been wanting to make Fried apple pies for quite some time, so I made those!)

I was going to make a normal little lunch, but I wanted to make it sound special. So, as Noah and I were walking the mile to the grocery store (and the mile back) I was thinking of names for our lunch. This is what I came up with.

We ate:
Abe's Awesome Quesadillas
President's *pasabocas [Doritos] (*Spanish for snacks or finger foods)
16th President Banana salad
Slavery Abolisher Salsa
Oval Office Orangeade
American Apple Pie
(You can laugh, for we laughed at my goofy names too =)

Here are some pics.

What a neat idea! It like you all had fun and the food looks yummy! The drawings on the cups were cute!

I understand what you mean about sewing on your dining room table. That happens at our home sometimes! So much sewing stuff on the table that we have no room to eat! You did a great job improvising!

What an awesome idea! I loved your mom's "baked" fried apple pies. I guarantee you they were better that the real fried ones! (and better for you)
