This may be one of my favorite month's of the year! I say that every year... but it just proves to be more true with every passing year... " I love Fall!"
Right before my fav month emerges... Fall back savings time happens... I am not a morning person so this is just a gift from my personal religious creator ( trying to be PC here) I miss that friggin hour that is taken from me in the spring. Any hoo! That
was just the prelude to my Happy November...
It is no secret that I love food... Southern born.... southern bred... this has to be the start of food fest at it's best... Can You Say Holiday Southern Style?
I start smellin' brown sugar, sweet potatos, cinnamon, let me correct that sentiment... replace smellin' with Dreamin'! Seriously... I dream fall food! ( ok who are we kidding? I just dream food year round, please don't judge me...lol)
I had the best dream the other day... Oatmeal Whoopie Pies! Had all the ingredients!
So here is how this story was supposed to go... Got all the ingredients.. keeping two toddlers... toddlers love helping Oma in the kitchen... Take pictures for a great AR blog... Happy day in the Tripp kitchen with AJ and Oma's angel Audrie!
Ingredients pre measured and placed in prep order...
cherubs standing on pre positioned stations at counter...
Oma, camera ready for a well documented fall baking experience with her two little loves...
What was I thinking?............
Never expect to bake with toddlers and take pictures... unless you hire a photographer!
Now this is the reality of the " Fantasia Whoopie Pie Tale!" Pre measure ingredients, place toddlers in position and proceed to bake. Do not leave said Toddlers to take pics! I repeat do not take pictures... unless you hire a professional photographer or
at least have another reponsible adult in your kitchen.
We had a great time, once I put my expectations on the side burner... In reality, all we really need is the final documention of the end product... and the story of how we got there... I had a great day with my future bakers! By the looks of their huge smiles
and flour dusted t-shirts, I can only surmise... It was a great day in the kitchen with Oma!
