Jacob is always begging me to experiment in the kitchen. I don't always want to let him do this, since he has no idea how to make desserts and what ingredients are involved to make them. He normally just wants to take everything that tastes good and throw it all together, because that should taste good too, right?
I did steer him down this path a little by saying that powdered sugar and peanut butter combined can make a kind of "dough." So here is his latest creation, his spider. In the middle of this peanut butter dough ball is a chocolate covered almond, the m&m's are the eyes, with red vine legs. To help offset the excess of peanut butter flavor he added chocolate chip studs around the spiders body. Needless to say, it wasn't too bad.
So we decided a while back to switch back to all glass for our plates, cups, bowls, etc. We have been going to goodwill every 50% off day and collecting the thin Corelle plates that we all remember from our childhoods or grandparents houses. We have come up with quite the eclectic collection.
While this works well for our dinnerware, we were having a real problem knowing what to do for drinking glasses. We wanted something sturdy and that we could at least stack 2 high, this really wouldn't work the same way as our plates. Someone at Jason's work recommended the restaurant store, where you could find anything you would need to open up your own restaurant.
Okay, so this is now one of my new favorite places to shop for kitchen supplies. Almost anything you could need is in this store. As we walked down the aisles I kept thinking about all the times we've had to go in search for certain gadgets or what not and here the've been in one place this whole time! And this was actually my favorite find of them all, this large size spices! With the amount that my family goes through continually buying those little ones was annoying, I can't even tell you how giddy I was!
