MAKIN' WHOOPIE...

PIES. Making whoopie pies......not what you people are thinking that I would actually write about here.

Get your minds out of the gutters.

These things.
Moist chocolate cakes with a creamy whipped filling.

Anyhoo - This was my commitment to the kids this year. I was going to bake homemade whoopie pies for them to take to each kid in their class for the holiday.

Much to my surprise on looking in Connor's agenda yesterday, I saw that his party was scheduled for today and not tomorrow as I assumed - (never ASSume anything, it just makes an ASS out of U and ME, remember that saying???). So my perfectly well laid out plan on what had to be done this week, to make my life run perfectly and smoothly, like I like it to - was now all screwed up. Thursday was no longer Whoopie Pie Day - I had to at least get Connor's baked and packaged for today. All 19 of them.

So about 10 hours later last night (because A. I am not much of a baker and 2. This is my very first attempt at these delicious discs of decadence) job completed, whoopie pies packaged and delivered today.

I must say - today's execution went much more smoothly, considering I had to make double the original "double batch" I made for Connor. All 40 - done and ready to go. And the filling came out soooo much better today. There are even a few extras.

YUM!

to my wife, as I go back and read about how busy you are cooking, cleaning and raising our kids... I realize in all of this we sometimes forget to stop and as you said in a previous post.. smell the roses. I wanted to say to you, in front of all your readers.. that I am guilty of not stopping and taking time to thank you for all you do. I would like to take the time, to tell you that you are my best friend, my wife and most of all the one that keeps me going.... so as I walked down stairs this morning and looked at the gorgeous decorations that you and you alone have done... the tree lit for the kids to see when they come downstairs, I smiled and understood exactly what all of us mean to you. So, Gini, thank you for being the best friend, wife and mother to all of us. I will forever look into your eyes and see my best friend.

LLL. Me
