me with my grandson, Wyatt, at his 5th grade graduation
my 2 granddaughters and daughter watching Wyatt's 5th grade graduation ... I thought they looked like a little train of cuties :)
MONEY ROSE BOUQUET for Wyatt's graduation ** links for roses, buds and also chocolate-covered pretzels * https://www.pinterest.com/pin/553802085405474172/
MISSISSIPPI MUD CAKE * chocolate, nuts, marshmallow, chocolate syrup * My friend's mom's authentic old Mississippi family recipe, but photo from King Arthur Flour * https://www.pinterest.com/pin/553802085405477169/
Wyatt... with all of his grandparents (and we're all good friends too)
Chocolate covered Pretzel Rods, as filler for the Money Rose Bouquet (same link as the bouquet)
Flourless DARK CHOCOLATE Chocolate Chip COOKIES ~ also for my friend's birthday. She's allergic to nuts and gluten ** These are ooey-gooey, extra rich. In her words (after she tasted them): "OMG! These cookies are to die for!"
The painting I did for my friend's birthday * It's her house in Colorado, and she's actually the grandmother in photo above who's wearing all black.
PORK CHILI VERDE for dinner last night ~ the sauce is absolutely fantastic, so serve it over white rice to soak up all that sauce! ** https://www.pinterest.com/pin/553802085405475964/
PINEAPPLE MANGO SALSA ** sweet with a hint of heat ** I cut it up chunkier to serve as a side fruit salad with the Pork Chili Verde * https://www.pinterest.com/pin/553802085401769449/
