Trunk or Treat, 10-30-19

Instead of the regular Wednesday programming, join us at Calvary Lutheran Church for a night of fun, games and food this Wednesday night. There will be trick or treating from the cars in the parking lot, games inside the church, and walking tacos for sale for supper.

Wednesday, October 30th, from 6:00 – 7:30 pm
– Trunks will run from 6:00-7:15 pm
– Costume Contest 7:20 pm for all the little critters.
     We will also announce the winners of the trunk competition at this time.

Admission is just $1 per person attending or 2 cans of food per person! All the proceeds and canned goods will go to Feeding SD.

Children and families trick-or-treat from car to car in the safety of the church property. Trunks are opened, decorated, and filled with treats from fellow Calvary members.

Need a good recipe for Pumpkin Spice season? We made some pretty good pumpkin bars a couple of weeks ago. Here’s the recipe:

Pumpkin Bars

    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

    1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

    1 cup vegetable oil

    15 ounce can pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)

    4 large eggs

    2 cups granulated sugar

Heat oven to 325*F convection.  Grease 17 x 11 x 1-inch pan and set aside.

In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice.

In electric mixer, combine and mix well on medium speed the oil, pumpkin, eggs and sugar.  Stir in flour mixture, mixing on low speed until well combined.   Pour into prepared pan.
