I hope everyone had a GREAT Memorial Day weekend!! Ours was busy but I also feel like I’m rested so that is great.
Friday we had our party for my Father-In-Law’s retirement. We also got to visit with my sister-in-law and her family before they moved. My “practice” cake was a huge hit at the party.
Yummy right! It was fabulous! Keep in mind I had never made this so I wasn’t sure how the flavors were gonna mesh but it was perfect! The one on the left is actually the cake I did for the graduation party. I didn’t have time to take a before of the practice one before it was cut into. The girl I did the cake for LOVED it and was totally surprised! YAAA!
Saturday evening we were bums and watched a bunch of movies and played a riveting game of Monopoly which I lost. I always lose to Adam at Monopoly. Maybe next time!
Over the course of the weekend my sister-in-law told us about this rock formation that a friend of hers had taken her to years ago. Apparently the found it on google earth or something and decided to go check it out. Well she found it again and we all decided to go. I wish I knew how to show you what it looks like on google earth but until then just check out the pics that I took while we were there.
This place was about a half of a mile off the road in the middle of the woods. There was a wide path to get to it but that’s it. Very weird. The lighter colored one in the last picture is about 25 ft tall. Adam said the rocks are no more than a hundred years old because of the drill holes. Apparently they didn’t do that pre 1900. (Does that make sense?) So I’m guessing someone with a lot of money decided to get 8 huge slabs of granite and set them up in a field for their own enjoyment. I would love to come back and have a picnic. It’s beautiful!
Sunday or Monday (I really can’t remember when now) I made these awesome chocolate chip cookies. With all the baking and cooking I’ve done I have NEVER been able to make a good chocolate chip cookie. They always turn out cakey and spongy. Very weird. So I tried a new recipe and did a few things different and they turned out PERFECT!!! I think Adam has eaten half of them! (The recipe made about 3 times as many shown, this is just the first batch).
Ok so now that you are sufficiently hungry for sugar and bad stuff I’ll say goodbye for today! HAHA!
