The sunny morning has turned to a blustery gray afternoon but I didn't realize it until just a little while ago. I've mentioned in passing before about a moms group that gets together every week usually here at my house. It has been such a blessing to hang out and be with these delightful women and today was no exception. Nothing spectacular happened, it was just a great time of fellowship and fun. I know that the older women are to teach the younger but honestly I learn so much more from this group of youngsters (I can say things like that now that I'm forty) and I'm not sure what I have to impart to them except an open door and a happy welcome. The sweetness of friends...there's nothing like it. Especially when it comes with so many precious little ones to cuddle and love on.
After the crowd had thinned out I got to try out a new brownie pan that a sweet newly married couple gave me over the weekend. It's called the edge brownie pan and it is designed to give every cut brownie a nice and chewy edge.
In just a bit Emily will be home and we'll be baking another sweet treat. Tomorrow is her birthday and over the weekend her Nana bought her a giant cookie baking set that we'll use to bake up a yummy treat to share with her friends at school tomorrow.
I am enjoying being in the kitchen more and more. I'm also beginning to feel more comfortable and adventurous in that realm. I've come across some amazing food blogs that help and inspire me in that direction. And that sweet couple that gave me the awesome brownie pan also gave me a wonderful cookbook full of recipes all geared toward dutch oven cooking!
Life is sweet!
