This week/weekend my mom came for a visit. The kids are always begging her to come and finally she was able to break away from her work in the middle of the week for a long visit. She was barely through the door before they had plans for her and were listing off all the things they wanted to do with her while she was here. One was cook, kind of my idea, but they enjoy it together. Please ignore the patch on the wall in the picture...the kitchen is getting finished this week...finally.
Mom and Avery made homemade fudgecicles/pudding pops. Mom had written down the recipe and brought it with her because she thought the kids would like it so i picked up the ingredients and they got to work. Avery thought the swirly colors were cool.
I can report that they were a success and passed the kid and parent test. I am not sure where the recipe came from but i think this is how it went
1 box instant devils food pudding 2 c. Milk 2 T chocolate syrup 1 c. cool whip
mix the first three until it stiffens. Fold in the cool whip. Spoon into little cups(these are the tiny bathroom size cups) and insert a popsicle stick. Freeze until solid and enjoy.
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
