WHAT AN EXCITING WEEK! Thanksgiving week!!! Truth be told, I was feeling crazy weighed down with my schedule. I had 8 chapters to read for school, cheer meetings, my hubby needed a ham for his work's dinner, and my mother in law tasked us with bringing desserts. We have been watching non-stop Hell's Kitchen and MasterChef, so it felt all too appropriate to turn our long tasks into something fun! Each kid chose a dessert flavor and then a recipe. Isabel and I went out for a quick shopping trip for all of the ingredients, and then Wednesday started the competition. All the kids had to be in charge of their own dessert (yes, even 5-year-old Hannah). I have to say that I am pretty impressed by this kids. I might be a little bias though.
I forgot to snap a picture afterward. It did last that long on the plates either!!! Isabel has begged for a couple nights since for leftovers of this one too! I'd say that's a huge win in my book especially with the child who is quirky with her food textures.
Aiden's Dessert - Lemon Meringue Pie
Lilli's Dessert - Carrot Cake
Isabel's Dessert - Rudolph the Red Velvet Cupcakes
Hannah's Dessert - Pumpkin Cupcakes with Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Frosting
P.S. I ended up getting Plan To Eat and looooooove it! It has made menu planning, cooking, and grocery lists so much easier and UNDER BUDGET!!!
