One of the ways that Laurel and I stayed busy while Luke was gone was prepping for a fundraising bake sale at the library. But do you know how much time it takes to make decorated cookies with a toddler? I had the brilliant idea to space the entire process out over 3 days. When I was finally ready to decorate I couldn't figure out how to keep Laurel's hands busy - I gave her a separate work station with two large sugar cookies, a glob of frosting, and sprinkles - she was happy for an hour. I was quite impressed at how pretty my creations turned out; I know that presentation is important, especially for a bake sale. I even raided the clearance ribbon bin at JoAnn's Fabric for this! (Got to work on my sprinkle-sprinkling technique though!) Incidentally, I had so much time on my hands that I actually made 3 different sugar cookie recipes. Good thing Luke is back in town!
Sunday morning Laurel and I made heart-shaped flaky biscuits with scrambled eggs for Luke and dinner was pork chops, asparagus, and a killer 2-person German Chocolate cake from Whole Foods. Delish!
