Ahh Children

Today, I have all three of Cowboy Mechanic's kids. He had a truck to work on, and everyone was busy, so he asked me pretty please to watch them. We've been to two different parks, Mickey D's and my apartment, since nine thirty this morning.

Just watching the three of them run around like wild Indians wears me out! They have a ton of energy, but all in all they're good kids, and fun.

I think I actually managed to wear them out a little though, because they wanted to come inside and rest for a while. They're giving the TV their father's blank stare right now, whilst Farmmom is at Walmart getting the ingredients for cookies, so she can play with her KitchenAide one more time before she entrusts it to my loving care.

See, I got this issue of Cooking with Paula Deen, the chocolate issue. And I'm gonna be doing some baking, because the stuff looks so damned good. And Farmmom hasn't been using her nice stand mixer much lately, so I'm borrowing it.

I'll be making things like Creamy Chocolate Mousse Cake, White Chocolate Tiramisu, and White Chocolate Cherry Pie. One at a time, but still, it's so much more convenient if you don't try to mix it all by hand.

Mmmmm Chocolate..... whups, better go wipe the drool before it shorts out my keyboard!
