It's Foodie Friday!
Everybody's Favorite Day
Hosted by our very own
Today I am sharing
a simple and SWEET
way to prepare
Candied Sweet Potatoes.
I tried to gussy up the recipe...
Once I baked real sweet potatoes -
they wanted these instead...
I tried Paula Deen's recipe -
you know the one -
the sweet potato balls rolled in coconut.
Nope they didn't want them....
I tried whipping them -
They actually got mad at me!
They wanted their
Sweet Potatoes with Peeps on Top!
Easter was a very special day at our house....
It was my niece (& Goddaughter) Amanda's birthday!
We had "Eastery" wrapped surprises for her!
She wanted a marble cake with whipped frosting.
I didn't have time to make it for her
so she got one from Sam's Club instead.
And of course, the only cake they had left
in that combo was the sheet cake.
Do you think we had enough for 8 people?
We had an egg hunt for the "kids".
You know the guy on the left...
Then there is Amanda - our birthday girl,
Allen, Megan and Aaron.
I hid golden goose eggs
(filled with cash
to make it worth-their-while)
around the back yard.
While we were cooking,
Gramma noticed through the window
that an egg was missing
from it's hiding place.
We ran outside and looked everywhere...
It was no where to be found.
Jacob swore up and down
he didn't touch it.
Luckily, I had another egg in the house
and some extra cash,
We made the "Kids"
search for them ASAP after they arrived.
(Later Jacob and Grampa found the egg -
still intact - money and all - buried in the garden leaves.)
Speaking of egg hunts...
Miles participates in an egg hunt
It's so cute,
Jacob places dog treats in plastic eggs
and hides them around the house.
Then he tells Miles
He searches and searches.
When he spots one
He rushes over to it
and tells Jacob
to open it up for him.
I can't believe he remembers
how to do it year after year....
Thanks for visiting me today.
