BEHOLD, THE SNOWMAN!!!!
I'm ready for my close-up, Mr.Deville.
So. This is what we made today, snowmen extraordinaire for John's Christmas breakfast tomorrow morning.
They are not hard to make, just very time consuming and messy. You bake regular size cupcakes for the bottom and then you have to bake mini cupcakes in a mini (obviously) muffin tin. The head is a large marshmallow, pretzel sticks for arms and mini Reese's P.B. cups for the hat. His scarf is made out of a fruit roll up and you use a black Dec-A-Cake pen for the face.
This is the third timeI have made them, the only difference is, I had a lot of help this time. Jeremy was my pretzel arm guy and John was my hat and scarf guy. I did all of the icing myself because I am not the fun, let's get icing everywhere mom.
I also had some errands to run today and I am pretty sure that the lady in A&P was trying to steal my Christmas joy. I only had 9 items so I jumped into the express lane. There were three people in front of me so I knew I had a moment to read. Well, the cashier was a lot more efficient than I originally thought, and before I knew it, it was my turn.
Because I had not yet put my items on the belt, the lady behind me began to smack her lips and tap her foot at my seeming lack of disregard for grocery store line protocol. So I began to rush for fear of being chastised by the Grinch behind me. The next thing I hear is:
Grinch:Excuse me, you should have had your items on there already.
Grinch: I'm in a rush.
Me: Do you want to go in front of me?
Me: Do you want to keep yelling at me?
Grinch: I wasn't yelling.
Me: Well you're clearly not happy with me.
Grinch: I just think you should have been paying attention.
(In my mind: I was reading a quality piece of literature lady. (Alright, it was The Star magazine))
I was very proud of myself for not beating her about the head and neck with
The Star my quality literature.
Look to the finish!
