My birthday boys (and Succinctly Yours!)
Okay, first of all, my husband is not the cook or baker around here, it's me. I usually make my own cake because the cakes he has made in the past didn't quite turn out. (I do remember one cake who's top layer slid right off, but there were a few that turned out well-LOL!) And this pudding cake? He tried to make it several years ago-the kids don't remember but I do-and no one would touch it...
My son keeps asking me if I am going to do his cake, and there is genuine fear in his eyes. So what do we do about dad? He has brought it up a couple times but I am taking a "wait and see" approach to it all, and if the man wants to make himself a pudding cake, then I'm going to step back and let him do it. (I'm just hoping it all turns out for the best...) Who is the designated baker in your families?
Now time for Succinctly Yours, another writing meme that piggy backs on the idea of Susan of the Stony River Blog.
Grandma Goulash posts a picture and you are to write a 140 character or word story about it. You can also use the word of the day in your post if you wish. This week's word is practice. Here this week's picture and my take this week:
It was more than a few decades before Emma could revisit places from her past, but like her old school, she had withstood the test of time.(138 characters)
It's getting late, so I will come by your blogs tomorrow!
