Wednesday, May 6

Hello All!!

Hope all is well out there! I can always tell when Dustin is gone and Brenna (o.k., me) are getting a little "crazy" in the house. Yesterday, we made a "fat-free, calorie free cupcake" (o.k., it is a towel hanger) - good...Today, in celebration of Cinco de Mayo (oops - day late, at least Brenna doesn't care yet) we made Sopapillas (We've watched too much Handy Manny here!) - yummy!! We sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar (and two with powdered sugar) - Brenna loved just licking off the sugar (go figure) - although she liked them well enough too! I was surprised how easy these were to make, although my choice of sunflower oil probably not so good... They still tasted quite good though! Gotta love All-Recipes (have you went there yet - if you are ever in need of a good recipe, they are bound to have one!). Brenna didn't want to have her picture taken with our creation - she did quite well with sifting the flour - but there is so little in these, that was about all she could do (can you see the missing spots where we ate two of our creations??)....I'm sure if we make these in the future we will try to have her roll them into the balls...
My mom comes tomorrow - yeah!! Can't wait to see her! Wonder if any of the Sopapillas will be left or if Dustin will eat them all when he gets home, lol :-)
Take Care!

Those look soooooo yummy! I say that as I haven't had any breakfast yet and the fried variety of anything is very appealing! How awesome that you are creating new things (like the calorie free cupcake) and keeping busy! I'm missing you like crazy and am so jealous that you ate those yummy creations!!!!!
