Thursday in pictures!
My day usually starts with a cup of coffee in the rocker, catching up on the news, after a run or getting little dude out the door to school. The pups gather round and snuggle, until they start to worry that maybe I’ll never, ever feed them again, and then they really start to give me “the look.” This is just before they started to get antsy.
This was taken at Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour. I haven’t been in forever, and little dude had never been at all. Since he scored straight A’s and is now officially an 8th grader, we went out to celebrate. Love the Farrell’s staff, they make the experience! (Looking back from 2019: Farrell’s is now closed locally and it made us really sad! They didn’t always sing to my kids when requested, and their service sometimes was slow, but we still enjoyed it. We’re sorry to see them go away!)
And two dozen of these. Whoopie Pies are some of my favorite things to make, and while they’re not as unique as my dangerous cupcakes, I really need to try and make more. The flavor combinations are delicious and they’re so easy because they don’t have to be as pretty as a cupcake!
My night should have ended with a bubble bath and a glass of wine, but it ended with me falling asleep to the news of a car chase. Here in Southern California, it feels like those are becoming more and more common. I don’t understand it, because they always get caught, and sometimes they end up hurting innocent people. Scary stuff.
Sweet dreams about cupcakes, and stay tuned for my next Thursday in pictures!
