January 5: Baking High Five!
Daddy has had a wrestling tournament the last two days in Costa Mesa. This morning, Sarah pulled out her cookbook and announced,"I have an idea." I always smile a little warily and hold my breath at this point. She wanted to bake something for Daddy as a surprise for him. At first, she wanted to make cream mints that are dipped in chocolate. Yummy! But they have to set for 24 hours before you can dip them in the chocolate. I helped her look through the rest and found another recipe for which we happened to have all the ingredients: oatmeal squares dipped in chocolate. (See, we always have to dip everything in chocolate; it's part of our family culture). In the picture, the squares had been placed in the oven and this is the high five they gave each other for a job well done!
