We took the girls to the zoo that is close to my parents' house. I hadn't been there in years, so it was interesting to see all that had been added over the years. One of my dear friends and her baby girl were able to meet us there for the afternoon.
we went up to see Mama Bear's family for her brother's wedding! Goldilocks and Curly Bear enjoyed playing outside after the long car ride. We went up a day early so that I could work on stacking the wedding cake. I baked the layers, filled it, and gave them crumb coatings at home, then took the icing and everything else I needed with us. My dad helped cut the dowels for the cake, and my mom helped wave the crazy gnats away while I worked. Papa Bear helped by going to Sonic. I lost count of how many times he went to Sonic over the weekend.
Finally, I got a nice smooth layer of icing and the border on the cake - flowers will be put on the morning of the wedding :)
We've tried 2 more recipes from the Pioneer Woman website - Escalloped Cabbage was the first. I had never made cabbage before and this was delicious and pretty easy too. I made half the recipe the first night and we devoured it. This recipe is a keeper
She featured these mushroom fries on tasty kitchen, the recipe sharing website They tasted a lot like the fried mushrooms from Zaxby's, except that these are baked and have less oregano. Goldilocks ate lots of these!
