Carbs and Kids


Yesterday I was so busy consuming carbs that I did not have time to blog. IT was carbolicious and ridiculous. It was our monthly keepers meeting where the kids were to learn baking. We made fruit cobblers AND pretzels. So on the way, we stopped off for honey roasted peanuts and corndogs to count for lunch. We were accompanied by Mama Mia and kids who followed suit with a healthy convenience store lunch. We stopped by my mom's on the way for a quick dressing change and then on the road again with a bit of extra time thanks to my excellent clock reading skilz.


Upon arrival we were able to sit around awkwardly and again marvel how this group never really meshed. It isn't that everyone isn't nice and wonderful-for some unknown reason we just all never clicked-at least not as a group. Then the fun cooking started and I got to be "flour" girl. Just in time to fulfill a lifelong fantasy. 36 year old "flour" girls are the new black! Keep that in mind Kasey!!


So my girls made lots of pretzels, which although QUITE yeasty tasting, were consumed with salty abandon. We also have 3 peach cobblers which are thankfully on the small side.(No cobbler was consumed until after supper.) Then, since we were close to the HOSTESS outlet bakery store, we stopped by to pick up a few more carbs. We topped off our fun day with ding dongs all around. (Since we were all female this may prove some sort of envy theory but I'm not going there-at least not in any more detail.)


Once we had gotten back to our home, approximately 10 minutes later, the KrispyKreme donuts my husband ordered from a neighbor selling door to door last week were delivered. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.


After putting two things on ebay, I crashed like a mini-van hitting a deer and headed for bed. Carbihol is deadly! Donut anyone?

No, but I'll take a circus peanut and a slab of Italian creme cake.

I fell into a deep sugar/carb sleep when I got home. Of course as a Mom during that sleep I had to cook supper, wash dishes etc....
We had such a great day! Thanks for the ding dong....
