My life has become super busy. How can I slow it down?
Preparing for Sissy to start Kindergarten in the Public School in 2 weeks. Wooley starting High School in the Cyber School in 2 weeks. Still filling out paperwork for that. And Boo Boo has been super whiney for a week. I started keeping a notebook (thanks Lorre!) so I can remember what I need to do and when.
I made a really pretty cake for a tea party for our congregation on Saturday. It was so fun and so nice to get together with the sisters. Here's a picture of the cake:
It's a 3 tier cake. All of it's cake or edible except the butterflies and ostrich plume. I carved the tea pot from cake and made the handle and spout from gum paste. The spout was too heavy and fell out of the cake during the party. This was my first fondant covered cake and I did 3 cakes! I still need the practice. It's really hard! I can't seem to get the smooth bottom edge. It keeps wrinkling. I guess I need more practice.
Here's our meal plan for the week:
Wednesday: Cereal with Bananas
Thursday: Crock Pot Salsa Chicken over Brown Rice with Green Beans and Steamed Broccoli
Friday: Thin Crust Pizza (Turkey Pepperoni and Fat Free Mozzarella cheese) with Salad
Saturday: Going tubing in Helen, Georgia, taking nutella and banana sandwiches, chips, applesauce and pickles for lunch. Picking up Subway or Burgers on the way home. Going to an outdoor movie and taking popcorn and Rice Krispy Treats.
Have a great week!
Hopefully I can carve out some time to share a couple of recipes with y'all!
