Toxic Sunday Night Dessert

Violet scoured looking for her dessert. She picked Country Apple Dumplings. The recipe called for Mountain Dew. MOUNTAIN DEW! Now, I have a (possibly) unnecessary hatred of Mountain Dew, especially for someone who has never had one... But I figured packaged crescent rolls were bad enough, I wasn't about to pour what, to me, appears to be highly caffeinated toxic waste on our dessert. I went with 7Up. Pouring soda on top of pastry almost did me in, but I have to admit, they turned out to be pretty tasty. Next time I'll cut the sugar by 1/4 cup though.


The drifts got a tad high. The kids managed to stay off the roof of the garage

I don't suppose anyone really needs a review of Lady and the Tramp.

Sunday Night Dessert

One Pan Chocolate Chunk Cookie

Verdict: I'm not a fan of the chocolate chip cookies, but everyone else really liked it. On the plus side, my iron skillet did not make the cookie taste like bacon. Although, considering my opinion of cookies vs. bacon, had it retained a bacony flavor, it may have worked out in my favor.

Family Movie Night

From Studio Ghibli, makers of one of our family favorites, Ponyo. The Cat Returns isn't quite as engaging for adults as Ponyo, but the kids really enjoyed it. I enjoyed listening to Cary Elwes.

Family Movie Night

The English dubbing, and terrible special effects only add to its charm.
