Our next part of the journey brought us back to my parent’s house in Loganville, PA. Sully got a late Easter present from my mom, a chocolate bunny with huge ears.
We spent June 19 at my Grandma, Beulah Ness’s, house making Cream Puffs for the Loganville Volunteer Firefighters at Station 63. Her cream puffs are famous in Loganville. When she makes them in November for Christmas in Loganville she gets hundreds of preorders and extras are for sale at our church, Emanuel UMC. The cream puffs aren’t really filled with a whipped creamy topping like the name implies. They’re filled with a dense delicious egg custard in a large puffy shell. We spent the day in Grandma’s kitchen baking shells, cutting holes for the filling and mixing up custard. The next day Grandma was up early to fill the shells with custard and I delivered the tasty treats to the fire hall. Some of the guys were already out working the BBQ and grabbed their cream puffs before they made it in the fire hall. They’re a hot commodity in Loganville!
