I personally believe the weekend gets sucked into a big black hole. It much resembles a washing machine.
I don’t have time for a full post today, but I did want to share a quick story about littleb’s recent interest in cooking. You may remember that littleb has a slight chocolate addiction. Actually, that’s like saying that Lindsay Lohan has a slight drug addiction.
littleb will do anything if you pay him in chocolate; anything you ask-eat broccoli, take out the garbage, not talk for 3 minutes….But of all the chocolate treats in the world, his favorite, bar none, is fudge brownies.
On Thursday, when I last posted, I was sitting here at the computer, maybe focused a bit more on you, World, than littleb, if the truth be told, which is never a good idea. I knew he was in the kitchen. I could hear him in there talking to his two dogs, Sparky and Chunky, and his two cats, Francesca and Sweetie, and his hamster, Elephant. His horse, Chuckles, must have been out delivering the mail. What? You’ve never heard of Pony Express? littleb has.
What I didn’t realize, until I finally dragged my butt out to the kitchen to perform a visual check, was that the six of them (five imaginary pets and one littleb) had been quite busy. littleb was making brownies, and his clueless friends were crowded around him, calling instructions. The kitchen resembled a science project gone terribly wrong.
I asked littleb what his recipe was.
Almost right, littleb. Not a bad first try. He hadn’t gotten to the eggs yet, so we added those and baked it off. This is what we got:
It wasn’t bad on saltines.
BigB came home, saw the *brownies* , immediately intuited what had happened and asked with completely phony innocence, “Do some blogging today?”
The proud chef (and five invisible helpers)
We took another stab at cooking on Saturday, and this time I read the recipe. Much better. No offense imaginary friends:
littleb’s secret ingredient? The rainbow sprinkles!
And then today we made our usual chocolate chip pancakes, but instead of making Mickey Mouse pancakes we made Mickey Dog pancakes:
Why are we making Mickey Dog pancakes?
Because S. has a new dog and we all love him. His name is Mickey. Here he is:
Why yes, that is me dressed as Batman. But I am not really batman. I know. The resemblence is striking.
Have a great rest of the weekend,
