Tuesday, November 4

Hello All!!

I had a very vanilla day today!!! - What does this mean you might be asking?? Well, I am hooked on the http://www.allrecipes.com/ website - it makes finding recipes super easy over here. I was looking for one recipe yesterday and ended up stumbling upon a different recipe for vanilla wafer cookies... You can not find these cookies over here (they have one "cookie" over here that is kind of like a graham cracker/vanilla wafer flavor). Anyway, Brenna and I made the vanilla wafer cookies this morning - yum!!! This afternoon, I was looking for a recipe to use egg yolks and ended up making very vanilla crepes - these were voted by the family as yummy too (o.k. - Brenna ate two cookies and 4 crepes today - I'm not saying how much I ate :-)
We made it out again for a nice walk with the dog this afternoon. Brenna wore her Gymnastic shoes (that we haven't used for that purpose - I figured she might as well wear them :-) and rode in the stroller.
We went to the grocery store this evening and let Brenna push her own cart around - she really enjoyed that (although she was a little upset after we were home and she realized we put some things back on the store shelf...).
We are working to plan a trip this weekend to some castles - crazy how close we are to this stuff over here. I need to get the camera cards cleaned off so that we can take some more pictures - maybe tomorrow (not sure what happened to me doing it in the last couple days - lol)....
Well - here is a picture of Brenna enjoying one of her cookies today :-)
Hope you all have a great day!
Take Care!!

Okay, I think you will be a master baker by the time you move back here, if you do! The cookies sound yummy so you'll have to send the recipe! Sounds like you had a fun day! Miss you!
