Saturday was the school fall carnival. Things got moving around here on Friday with baking cakes for the cake walk.
The best part of helping mommy bake....
While on the other side of the counter dinner was cooking...
...a yummy pot of chili. I have to say that I'm partial to the chili that I usually make on the stove. It seems to have a bit more veggies in it (although all I can think of are green peppers...so maybe I'm just being a snob about it). Actually, it was very good, and I could always add peppers to it. So, I can look at it as a good place to start.
Back to the cake walk...
...around and around and around we go. Where you'll stop, nobody knows. Actually, I was in control of the music (think I got my Beatles fix for the year). I must have had some bad ju-ju. Every time my kids played, they were one square off from the winning square.
Today we're back home steam cleaning the carpet (stains due to an angry cat, a geriatric dog and a puppy with an upset tummy), cleaning my daughters room (she has taken to piling EVERYTHING up at the end of her bed), and making tuna fish.
Having 4 kids...I'm all about self-sufficiency. My 10 year old and my 4 year old worked together to make tuna.
"Make sure you use a separate spoon to get the mayo out." says the sensible 10 year old.
"Tuna is good for you. It has chicken in it." says the imaginative (and a bit grumpy) 4 year old.
"Um, no. That's tuna fish in there."
"Chicken. Chicken, chicken, chicken, chicken. Um, I'm stirsty."
And there you have it.
