Baking Bonanza

I am not sure what's going with me. It might be because of the constant mention of snickerdoodles here. Or, maybe it is because of the current Food Blogging here. It might just be because my parents are in town and my dad loves Snickerdoodles. Maybe the Snickerdoodles are to blame for it all. Anyway, I was going to make some snickerdoodles for my dad. I ended up making chocolate chip cookies because those are David's favorite. (And, when both of your brothers just had birthday's, it makes you feel special to get your favorite cookies.) The day after I made the chocolate chip cookies, I made snickerdoodles...2 batches mind you. Right after making those batches, I cooked dinner (baked Italian chicken and veggies) and just HAD to make some homemade biscuits. And now, I am just dying to use up my very ripe bananas in some fresh banana bread (oh, and yes, there is a half a loaf still in the fridge from a week and a half ago). I wish you were all in town for me to share some goodies with you. I took some pictures of the the cookies so you could feel closer... or to document my craziness... not sure which.

You're like a crazy insane person!!! I was going to make banana bread the other day until I realized I still haven't purchased baking powder! By banana's are now black and I've yet to get the baking powder.
So I'm going to ask the obvious - are you pregnant?

Seth! Your wife is picking on me!
Please make her stop.

I don't see how your dad rates over me when it comes to getting snickerdoodles anyway. I mean other than the family tree thing, and the fact that you've known him a little longer.)
Thanks for the link to my site though!

KIM-- please don't scare me with a question like that!!!

Kimberly said...

JA -
If I can scare you with that question then that means there is a possibility it could be true. And that makes me smile really big and chuckle deeply!!! Hee, hee, hee!
Sorry!

JA--I have to agree with Kim--if she can scare you with that question then it means there is a possibility of it being true. I thought you guys were going to take care of that!

I am calling the doctor on Monday. Time to "take care of it" before Elisabeth has a little sister.

kimberly said...

from what I hear, there's a possibility you may be too late! besides don't you think that Elsie deserves a sister?

John & Carrie said...

seth,
that is really too funny. I thought you were going to do it sooner!

John & Carrie said...

seth, you don't have the balls to get it done.
