Cory had a great birthday! 10. Wow. We open presents in the morning, before school… as if our mornings aren’t chaotic enough! Chuckle. All Cory wanted was an ‘airsoft’ gun, or money, so he could buy an ‘airsoft’ gun. So, just to give him a hard time, we wrapped up presents that are NOT interesting to a 10 year old: socks, pencils, new shorts, new shirts and ugly teeth gag gifts. (ok, there was a little candy in there that was somewhat redeeming!) And just to torture him more fully, I color copied 10 dollar bills, and taped them on top of the gifts. There was ONE real 10 dollar bill (smile!)… well, he then caught on and figured out that there was something else, and found the ‘airsoft shotgun’ under colton’s bed. He was SOO excited. after I took a Sonic Chili Cheese Cooney to school for Cory for lunch, and donuts to the classroom, Cassie took them for Sonic treats after school and Eric and I took Cory to the restaurant of his choice for dinner. (He chose Chilis!) … SO, we had a great daY! Cory was happy!! I love Chili’s…
ok, so check this out:
This is my most favorite cook book ever.
Now, I am not a big ‘cook’, but you know, families like to eat. This cook book has been my staple cook book, the fall back, the true blue…awesome. And it’s got it all: desserts, breads, appetizers, main dishes…etc. I love it. ok, so just a few days ago, I mentioned ‘Elizabeth Banks’ on my blog- the one w/ the easter goodies!… it’s her cookbook. She is a family friend, that I feel like I have known her forever… she is just an all around totally awesome, feel good, taste good cook. Ok, so anyway, I dropped a little thank you thing off, and we got talking and I asked if she has more of those cookbooks… I mean, I thought surely they were long gone! GOOD NEWS!! She has just done another run, and so she has some to sell! I was so excited, because I think they are awesome gifts… anyway, she usually sells them for $15. but is offering them for $12.99. (sweet deal) you can email her HERE if you would like to pick one up! she has given me ONE to give away!! So if you would LOVE to have my most FAVORITE cookbook ever… leave me a comment and tell me what is your favorite thing to cook! I love her salads, the texas sheet cake recipie is in there, tons of cookies and yummy realistic meals, tasty soups. It’s a winner, I TOTALLY recommend it.
