Whiteboard Session: What Do You Want?

Whiteboard Session: What Do You Want?

My husband is a genius! He turned a simple question from our son (“Can I play Minecraft on the computer?”) into an hourlong whiteboard session on what he wants in life. “What do you want?” became “What do you want now? In a year? Five years? Ten years?” Manly Guy translated T’s responses into a chart on the whiteboard and they continued to discuss it. Turns out that Being Bilingual is now a goal for our son. Yay!

Recipe of the Week: Boozy Fruit Bites

Recipe of the Week: Boozy Fruit Bites

I had some Rummy Pineapple in the cupboard and turned it into these tiny puffed pastries. I took frozen puff pastry (defrosted) and cut into 1-inch squares, then placed on parchment paper-covered cookie sheets one inch apart. Brush with egg wash, add a small slice of fruit, then top with an almond crumble topping before baking at 400 degrees for 12 minutes. After cooling, I sprinkled some powdered sugar over them, and Voila! Tiny tasty morsels, perfect for holiday entertaining. (NOTE: You can use canned pineapple if you don’t have Rummy Pineapple– pineapple preserved in rum– in your cupboard.)
