We headed north for Easter Dinner. I took along corn that was frozen off the cob last summer. I also took along some Granny Smith Apples, Snickers Candy Bars and Cool Whip for a quick salad that growing boys will eat. Noah helped me cut up the candy bars..he likes using the biggest knife..I showed him how to pick up the candy on the side of the huge knife he was using…being very careful so he didn’t cut his fingers off.
Andrew smoked a ham in his smoker, they cut up melons and made some different potatoes with onion and egg. Cooked carrots and deviled eggs rounded out the meal ..oh and some of the best dinner rolls you have ever tasted..they melted in your mouth.
Jen made dessert. She is a really good baker..she is a really good cook. Neither talent is from me.
I asked her if she would like me to bring dessert..I suggested an apple pie. I make a decent apple pie..not fabulous ..but decent!
It would never compare to this Carrot Layer Cake.
I am sure that the finest restaurants would not have a Carrot Cake this good. The best part is ..she sent home two slices for us to enjoy again today! Yes, she even made the little carrot decorations.
The boys have grown again..taller..for finicky eaters they sure grow like weeds. Adam ate ham for the first time yesterday. His Grandpa said “Go ahead and touch it to your tooth Adam.” One time when he was here with us I had him try some new kind of food..he touched it to his tooth and said “Nope ..I don’t like it.” Adam liked the ham today..he declared it a pretty good tasting food:)
