and can i say how hungry i am from reading your comments? so many yummy ideas! like charleston cheese dip. a hot reuben dip. crustless quiches (just use a slice of squash for a crust!) caprese salad balls - mix shredded mozzarella cheese, pesto, and a small amount of minced tomato. form into balls. roll in beaten egg, then in bread crumbs. fry. use a deep fryer so they don't fall apart. (thanks for the recipe, sharon!) jalepeno popper dip. and so many of you are like me - going with the popular spinach dip or lil' smokies. anyways, thanks again for all the great ideas!
oh - i looked for brie at wallyworld yesterday, but could only find a wedge, not a wheel. i found a small round of smoked gouda - and thought mmmm, smokey gouda with red onions and mushrooms... maybe my favorite pizza ever. and then i thought - hey, maybe with this onion and pepper relish i want to try. get it? gouda dea? heehee i'm hoping to make some this weekend, we'll see...
here's a project i am glad to be done with.
|those teeny hands!|
i bought these kits months before baby was born. they've asked and asked to do them, so we got them out the other day. where i realized that only two of them could be made at a time, because there were only two molds. then i realized they have to sit overnight to dry. can you imagine the chaos that ensued? i want to paint them! i want to make mine now! why can't i paint one! i think it's dry NOW! poor kids. life is soooo hard sometimes. :) anyways. this pic is before the painting. that was physically hard for me to endure. watching them paint all willy-nilly. i was cringing even though i tried not to. and the funny thing is? in the end, i like theirs better than the one i painted for sawyer.
