DD Girl doesn’t read my blog very often.
It’s ok because there’s not much new she could learn from reading it that she wasn’t there to eat, wasn’t texting with me during or didn’t hear about after the fact.
Obviously, she needed to see who this super star was that was to sweep in and claim her rightful throne. Then she read it, and realized it was just one of my silly notions (for which she loves me) and moved on.
Regardless of whether she reads this thing daily or not, one thing is certain. Something is rubbing off on her. I think it’s a bit of the adventurous spirit this blog evokes in us, namely via Fire & Wine nights.
For example, when I cancelled Fire & Wine night on Thursday, DD Girl decided to have her own cooking adventure. She text me to ask what she should make. I had just the perfect thing in mind. She was a little doubtful when I told her what it was (sounded fancy and complicated) but, she said she’d give it a look.
By 7 p.m. that night, I was receiving texts that the pork chops were the best thing she had ever made. Her boyfriend and his pal loved it.
I told her so.
So began my sneaky plan to convince DD Girl to make the dino cupcakes.
It was an idea I conceptualized for a friend’s birthday party. This friend loves dinosaurs. So I thought these cute T-Rex Wilton cupcakes would be perfect for her.
Uh-uh, no way was I going to attempt them.
I think we all know what happened last time I tried to make a cutesy cupcake. But see, DD Girl can actually bake. And her stuff always looks super pretty.
So I suggested them to her and said I’d help her with them. But then we had duck pasta and wine on my front porch and needless to say, there were no dino cupcakes created that night.
The next afternoon, I began hearing from DD Girl that she was up to her elbows in cupcakery.
Good for her, I thought, as I flipped through channels on the T.V. (remember, I was in the middle of my weekend of laziness.)
About an hour later, my phone chirped and there they were.
I’m so proud of her.
I think adventure in the kitchen goes a long way.
And it’s contagious.
