random stuff

Here are couple of things lately that have made me happy.

1. I was crafty.

I like to think of myself as artsy, but I have the hardest time actually finishing anything. This weekend I actually completed a project and might actually do more. I was inspired by Tina's daughter, Micha, to try my hand at some fun letters. It is hard to see in the pic, but I found some great cobweb paper and I love the yellow "calico" paper as well. I would love to figure out a way to string them somehow, but that would require another trip to the craft store. Maybe later this week. So fun and super easy.

2. People like my cooking.
Now I am in no way a super cook, but what I can make, I make really well. I love the fact that Joji's friends look forward to coming to our house because they know the eating is good. Last time around I made a big batch of General Tso Chicken. It was my best batch yet. The best part, it is so easy.

3. I make a mean cupcake.
Well, actually the cupcakes are okay, it is the frosting that is really the star of the show. One of my favorite combos is chocolate an peanut butter. These little gems are devils food cupcakes with fluffy PB frosting. Yummy!!!! In a couple of cupcakes I put a peanut butter cup into the batter. This I think was a bit much. I liked the ones without it and preferred the sprinkling of crushed cups on top.
With all the business of school stuff and feeling like if it isn't done right, it's my fault, I just have to take a minute and remember that I can do some things really well. If only housework was on this little list. :0)

Loved your list! Awesome, I'd like to come over for dinner myself. It is one thing I love doing (and doing well) for my family- cooking!

OK, you need to share that General Tso's recipe...
I love, love, love it and need to know how to make it myself!

Hi Laurie Anne, I love everything you have shown today.

That recipe for chicken looks delicious. I agree with Kellie, you have to share it ... please?

The cupcakes look yummy too. What do you put in the icing?
