Well, I've posted my Classic Movie list, and Daisy from 400 Wake-ups suggested in a comment that we read Wuthering Heights. I replied to her saying that she's definitely on to something! After I complete my movie list (or maybe during), I'll start a Classic Novel list and tackle that too.
She also said, "I think if we didn't have goals and lists, we would just sit in the dark and cry.". I'm totally with her on that.
As I've mentioned before, the kids and I will be swinging on over to the East Coast en route to Louisiana soon. I can't wait. I've always wanted to see NYC, and I'm looking forward to visiting with a close, longtime friend there. We'll also be in the Washington DC area to visit with more friends, and we'll get a chance to tour some of the Smithsonian, etc.
Traveling will be a nice time waster. Traveling always recharges me.
So, with that being said, while I'm back in Louisiana this summer, I plan to learn how to make some really good deserts. I look at it as a part of my household contribution while staying with the in-laws. When I was telling my husband about this, he chuckled and said that his dad would be more than happy to eat my mistakes or successes. I need to make these deserts while I have someone else (more than just the kids) to help me eat them; because GAINING weight is not an option.
First up, from one of my favorite recipe sites:
Mini OREO Surprise Cupcakes recipe
I wish I had a picture to post with the recipe, but I don't. So, you'll just have to imagine the chocolaty goodness, or just make them yourself. Let me know if you do, okay? Send me a picture, maybe?
Otherwise...Get ready, Pa-Paw!
