I have to admit that I was pretty bummed about Eric having to work today. We always have fun cooking and stuffing our faces together in our PJs. So, I plan to go out to the Ranger camp to eat dinner with him in the chow hall, and stop by one of the houses out there to socialize & eat some more. I had also planned to hit up V's house just b/c we can't seem to go more than 2 days without seeing each other...but she is moving her dinner to a neighbor's house since her house smells like paint.
So, I started the pie's and cream puff squares last night, and they turned out so good!!! I know I put on a confident front, but failing is my biggest fear...which often results in me fearing to try new things. I have seen this really cool design on a lot of wedding cakes, and have always wanted to try it...so I did, and I think it turned out pretty well. I won't ever be a professional, but I don't think it looks totally retarded either!
I won't add the garnish of whipped cream, banana, & strawberries until I get out there b/c I have to drive 17 miles of dirt road! I completely finished one last night and brought it to V...she said she is going to claim it as her own ;o)
I am so thankful for the little successes that give me the courage to try new things!!!
