This picture is a good description of the last five days...A million things have been going on. "Cooking parties", time on the road, organizing my closet, laundry (laundry, laundry), cleaning out my car, birthday shopping, prepping for a trip, saying goodbye to my sister's first horse, catching up with people on the phone, and a regular bout of spring cleaning.
Summer is almost here! In the meantime, we've got a little bit of spring to enjoy.
Last week, my friend's daughter spent a few days here. To occupy her, I decided to pull out some recipes that have been "requested" lately. I forget how exciting the kitchen is for a 3 year old girl. Needless to say we had aprons and wooden spoons and some flour on our hands.
In short...We had FUN.
The Lemon Bars were a big hit. I was sad that I couldn't find my old recipe for them. Thanks to Google, we came up with one that worked just fine.
Next up were some pretzels. Don't mind the junk EVERYWHERE. Also in the making were said Lemon Bars, bacon for sandwiches, fruit salad, and baked beans.
I had to call in the reinforcements for the pretzel making! They made it even more fun and a WHOLE LOT FASTER. That and they saved my not so crafty self from making fat, ugly pretzels.
