Challenged lyrically myself I do understand how my grandchild could have caught this affliction from me. I am sorry to say I was one of those people singing at the top of my lungs ....... "Excuse me while I kiss this guy."

Other Faux pas include but are not limited to ....."baking carrot briskets and waiting on a pie."= "taking care of business and working overtime."
"Who's that casting beefeater stairs in my direction?" from the same song... " I smell sexy candy."
 Then there was ... "wet birds in spades,it's a lonely groom." = " with birds I share this lonely view."

Now to see this in your minds eye I must tell you I live on music and hugs as well as food. I am also linked to the water with a strong bond. 
So my dear love; he who never gets his way, installed speakers in the kitchen so I could play my music while I cook,and used some of the money he was saving for a drill press to send me to the southern roundup. Bless his heart.

 Izzy aka Isabella Marie, is three and very independent. She wants to help me in the kitchen ... you see she says I'm the fun granny. So music playing we set out to make cookies.....

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <

I did most of the work the day before making the dough, coloring it, and putting it together to make it look like candy corn.  I used this one but everyone has a favorite one I'm sure.<

I have nice pans,I just don't use them. I may need to make a jelly roll cake some day. So for now its foil or parchment paper for me.

Izzy is always good in the kitchen (so far) she listens and tries to do just what I ask. So you can see how I was shocked to see her spinning around with her mouth open, in the middle of cookie making.

I asked her "What are you doing young lady?" She stopped looked at me and said the man said to. I looked around seeing no man in the kitchen I had to ask. "What man Izzy?" I was a little worried about her answerer (that is another blog)but I had to ask. Sweet little thing she is says "The man singing,granny." "Really?" I say. " Yes mamm, see he said .... "Open up Lizzy ,and spin until your dizzy give it all you got Petty little Missy."  We had to stop making cookies till I was done laughing. 

You see I had on Arosmith Rag doll. Old thin Lizzy ,became open up Izzy. and put out of your misery became your a Petty little Missy. Everyone tells her she is pretty so why not Steven Tyler. In her mind it made sense.

The hardest part of making cookies is the wait. So I try to tell Izzy that the wait does not seem so long if you clean up your mess wile you wait. She did not seem to like the idea but helped anyway. I wonder if I gave my granny the same deflated look.

The cookies are out of the oven.Jimmy Buffet is singing about  MargaritavilleAll is right with the world when Izzy starts singing along ....Stepped on a mop top throw out your flip flops. Bust a move and go back home. There's food in the blender, and you can send her frozen coconuts to hold on to.
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <

You totally cracked me up with this blog! And it's "put out of your misery", really? I guess I would fit right in. I think I have been subconsciously mumbling that line to end with something like "big deal" :)
Nov. 16, 2011 9:40 am robograndma - try this link and read BakingNana's comment. I too am having problems. One time it works then the next time not! However, experimenting with BN's suggestion it seems to work. Regardless I like your blog.

So true! We who love music, just make up our own words when we get lost!!! Love it! Baking w/ the kids/grandkids is the best! Miss Izzy is precious. I will make up my own pictures and words to &nbsp!!

She is a cutie! I remember my son singing along to I Can See Clearly Now....there are no Lobstercles in my way. He's my kid alright, and yes, I am lyrically challenged, I still don't know the right words to Bobby McGee!

Tooo funny! At lunch today, right out of the blue, my friend said her daughter was home from college over the weekend and someone brought up the fact that when she was little, when the Kenny Rogers song "Lucille" was on....the lyric that says "with 4 hungry kids, and a crop in the field" her daughter who was very young used to sing "with 400 kids, and a crop in the field". Poor, poor, Lucille!!!!!

Along the lines of "Lucille" picked a fine time to leave me loose-wheel.

Hahahahahaha, still laughing! You two are so cute, I can just envision you spinning around the kitchen 'gettin down!' My fav is 'dirty deeds and the dunderchief'.

that picture with Izzy's reflection on the oven glass is really nice.
Nov. 16, 2011 7:05 pm
I can sum up Izzy's reflection in the oven glass in one word, "anticipation."
Nov. 16, 2011 9:54 pm
Just how truly sweet. Pics and you and short person and cookie chomps. The music and the joy!
Nov. 16, 2011 11:09 pm
rock on RG and stay young through dancing, singing off key, and shaking what your mamma gave ya!

The pic of Izzy's reflection in the oven was a "happy accident" picture. I did not see the reflection from my angle just cookies. I love this one the best. I wish the oven glass was a bit cleaner I would enlagre it. LOL to much fun going on to clean to hard.

About Me
My other hobby is grand kids.I don't know why anyone would but My e-mail is Other blog Kids talked me into facebook Robin Davis.
My favorite things to cook
Any thing that makes another happy. I love to eat, but I love to cook for others more. I like to see a big smile. To be honest I like to hear Wow that was good
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies with the kids and now grandkids. I have one of my own. I love to sit thumb through my grandmothers & mothers old cook books and notes. They would review and rate them in the margins. My mother would also leave slips of papper in between the pages with jokes on them so she would not forget the punch lines.
My cooking triumphs
I would have to say I have two, the Hot Pepper Jelly in this site. Came out wonderfull the first time. Making my own corned beef.
My cooking tragedies
About every 4th time I make divinity. I know what I'm doing... but it's like the cooking angels are giving me a leson in humble.
