Joe's new favorite sayings include "Oh, wats (rats)", "Oh Brova (brother)", and "Good Gweef (grief)". Sound familiar? Charlie Brown, anyone? Well, I definitely felt these sentiments today when my peppermint bark flopped. : ( I was so looking forward to this holiday treat after making it last year. But, somehow I managed to screw it up....Oh, Rats!
Today wasn't a total flop though. Mark and the kids helped me a make a
couple of batches of thumbprint cookies (my personal fave!). And I made
some of Mark's favorites...snowdrop cookies. We will decorate cutout cookies
on Christmas Eve!
Ah, well, things just flop every once in a while. I remember the year
my Mom asked me to make the corn casserole for Christmas dinner and I
forgot to add cornbread mix and what we ended up with was something like
corn soup. Easiest. casserole. ever. We still laugh about that. So it goes!
