Now let's start with some inventiveness then we'll move onto to some fun teasing.
What can you do to repurpose leftover angelfood cake and some pudding cups?
Make a chocolate trifle!
*Cut up angelfood cake into bitesize pieces
*Grab some lowball clear glassware
*Put 1 spoonful of pudding in the glass bottom
*Add 1 layer of the cake
*Cover with the rest of the pudding
*Add another layer of cake
Top with ice cream scoop and whipped cream and you've got a delicious trifle!
I did this dessert last night and it was a hit! There you go, even everyday foods can be enjoyed a "2nd time around". Thanks, Diane for hosting again this week!
My 9-year old daughter is a cowgirl at heart, so for her 10th birthday, what does she ask for? A tablescape, of course! With what, you'll just have to wait. She's a summer baby.
Well... in light of it being TMOT, I think this hint qualifies.
TABLESCAPING IDEA: ("Brain" is quite the clever one to come up with this.) Each child is a different person with a different set of likes and dislikes. During any particular bout of "bad days" like being sick or a difficult test coming up, create a table that is sure to cheer them up. Have a theme of his favorite toy, color, TV show, the sky is the limit and call the theme, "_____ IS TOPS TODAY!" Cook a set of dishes and make a dessert that he or she loves and watch the anxiety wash away. We need to set aside time for each child to help them feel loved and attended to, so why not get the whole family on it by doing a great table in honor of one child! This is why my own family loves the "Blue Plate Special" times we have. Just having a different colored plate makes them feel special. We discuss why, how and let them shine throughout the whole meal time.
Thanks for stopping by; I've been having so much fun thinking up ideas this week, but I've also got two final research essays I need to complete before April 18th, so please, if I don't get to visit most of you during each meme, it's because I had a flash of idea for my papers, and profusely apologize in advance. See you at the next blog!
