Just Call Us Betty Crocker


Today was the day. Kary (Circus Girl) and I baked. And baked. And baked. In 4 hours we made 8 dozen brownies, 8 dozen Tollhouse bar cookies, 3 dozen blueberry muffins, 3 dozen apple-cinnamon muffins and appx. 300 pancakes. We used mixes for the brownies and pancakes but everything else was from scratch. Ain't we domestic. We froze everything for breakfasts and school lunches. So now when Tuesday (pancake day) hits, we just pop 'em in the microwave. We've got yummy muffins too. And brownies. Yumm-O. We were both exhausted when we were done but SO glad we did it! Next time we will tackle dinner. We are going to shoot for 10 meals~5 for each of us.

Too bad we missed it...instead of baking and baking and baking we laughed and drank and swam...I guess that won't help on pancake day but it sure was fun!

Isn't funny how you hang with circus girl and your sister calls your family the circus...is that why Kary feels at home with your family?

I'm impressed too! Keep us posted on how all this frozen stuff pans out; meaning worth it, not worth it, soggy food after microwaving, etc. I might (& boy do I stress the word 'might') give it a shot! :)
