Getting up early has been wearing me out too, especially when I am staying up late at night, partying wildly with these two little night owls!
They do look rather rough in the morning, don't they?!
I have also leaped into a new project. I have decided to use my kitchen for more than just storage. Shocking!!!!
I have spent an unprecedented amount of time perusing the spice rack in the grocery store, trying to figure things out. I feel like I am learning a new language.
Did you know my Betty Crocker cookbook can be used for more than just a step stool! (My mom will be so proud! She bought this for me years ago.)
Of course, the girls were thrilled to be involved. Our first adventure was to make baking soda biscuits. Unfortunately, I didn't have any Crisco, so we used coconut oil. We didn't have a roller either, so we used cups. They worked just fine!
Don't you love the heart shape! They didn't really rise all that well, but they were edible.
Anastasia was in charge of preparing the food in this giant pot for our special Sunday dinner.......
popcorn!!!! (it's healthier than McDonalds!)
Then I got a little too adventurous and tried to make homemade macaroni and cheese. The whole white sauce thing didn't quite work out. Things were bumpy and a little bit grainy.
We were quite proud of these cookies! I somehow over-estimated and we ended up with 10 dozen cookies. If anyone wants to have some, come on over!
Little Catherine requested meatballs and even helped make them.
They were a hit with everyone!
We're going to work on manners and the benefits of using a knife next week.
Our last project this week was fudge. My favorite!
Getting fudge on your nose is a requirement.
Hope everyone has had a great week! I promise to write more! I have some things on my heart that I want to talk to everyone about soon!
