Monkey Bread Recipe
It’s been emotional week guys. We celebrated our son’s 21st birthday on Friday, but sadly it was right on the heels of losing one of Sam’s best friends.
Andrew was a passenger in a vehicle that swerved from hitting a doe and was killed in the accident.
We still can’t believe it and are trying so hard to understand why God would take such a young, good person.
We may never understand.
I didn’t intend to write about our loss, but it’s been on my mind heavily as we celebrate this milestone of our own son.
A Personal Loss For Our Community
Heart wrenching doesn’t even describe adequately the sorrow and loss our little community here in Pacific Grove is feeling.
Our loss is compounded by three-fold when grieving the young man that was a part of your family, and would treat like he was your own kid.
Andrew was 21 as well, and became friends with Sam in elementary school.
He just graduated from the Coast Guard’s boot camp and was awaiting his first assignment.
He was so excited and happy with his new path.
Monkey Bread With Andrew In Mind!
Birthdays are a big deal around here, and even though Sam is in a lot of emotional pain, we couldn’t let this milestone slip by.
We usually start getting in the party mode days ahead of the big day and it lasts through the week.
Sometime even weeks depending on our schedules.
Sam has been spending a lot of time with us and like last year when I made him this donut birthday cake tower for the morning.
This year, I decided this year to make him monkey bread!
This is one of those treats that we would make during the holidays or when we had company over!
I also added bacon because bacon makes everything tastes better and Andrew would have totally approved.
