Something to blog about...

Fruit salad... yummy yummy...

Syd the kid is cookin' dinner!

So, the Peanut is off playing with a friend and Syd is at a loose end here at home with the
boring grown ups. What to do? what to do?

We went to the store and bought some provisions for a delicious dinner for three.
She's already put together a fruit salad, I keep singing that Wiggles song in my
head... arrggghhh!!!! She did a great job although I was nervously flapping
around and worrying about sharp knives etc.

She grabbed her little Lowe's apron (seem to be missing her cooking apron!!) and
told me she was "ready to get her cook on".
So we set about preparing the potatoes for a-bakin' and I told her she could pretend
to be Rachel Ray. "No mama, why do I have to be her? I want to be that
good Southern lady..... Paula Dean." I thought it was hilarious so she proceded
to describe her every action in a very southern, southern accent!!

Later, after dinner she's going for a drive to Dairy Queen with her friend in
her Dad's Barney Car.
It's a 1964 Ford Galaxie 500, all decked out with the Mayberry RFD star
on the doors. If you're outside the US and don't know about Mayberry you may
want to google it. Anyhoodles.... it's turning out to be quite the evening for Syd.

Don't know the song (thankfully, I'm sure), so that's a plus! Syd could definitely head this direction.... I doubt if anyone gets their "cook on" in this house! It would be a refreshing change! Kiwi....mmmmmmmmmm!
