Today is Done...

>> Wednesday, November 12, 2008

OK, so it's shortly after 7:30pm and there are, literally, hundreds of things I should do. But I'm drained. When Caelan doesn't nap I end up tired, too.

The girls and I did make some yummy truffles this afternoon...

They were very good helpers. First they unwrapped the chocolate to melt...

And after I mixed the melted chocolate and cream cheese they handled clean up...

Yes, I made my 4-year-old wear a bib. It didn't stay clean...

After waiting for the mixture to chill it was time to roll the chocolaty goodness into balls...

A few required some re-shaping...

And after I melted more chocolate it was time to dip & decorate...

VoilĂ ! Beautiful truffles, ready for Saturday...

Truffles


I let the girls each save one for after dinner and I fully planned to take a photo of them enjoying the fruits of their labors. But the truffles seemed to disappear before I could get the camera focused. I guess they were good...

And now I am going to disappear for the night. I'm going to remake my bed and put on my electric mattress cover (warm... so warm...) and then I'm going to watch a movie and go to bed. I'm beat.

Those look yummy! It's fun baking with kids, they get so involved in it and are so proud of the finished bake goods!

Those look really yummy. Are you putting that one on FFF?
Until last year Boo had to wear a bib when cooking, the aprons were WAY to big for her. Now she has her own apron, hopefully it will work just as well.
