Today while I sip daiquiris and relax in my hammock Thing 1 is going to take care of dinner. There’s no telling what will happen when a seven year old prepares dinner, but no mind I’m going to put my feet up and stare at the sky.
What’s this, who is in my hammock?
You’ve never seen me drink you say?
Whenever my mom comes out to visit she asks, “Do you want me to bring anything? Coffee, chocolate?”
“Nice mom,” I tease but “how about some Whisky?”
Okay, okay! You are right
“I love Jesus but I drink a little”! Sorry, that’s a bad inside joke and you’d be in on it if you watched the Ellen Degeneres Show. That is another thing I don’t make a habit of doing, actually we never got a converter box so we don’t even have TV but my dear Aunt sent me that little tid bit as an email attachment one day a couple months ago. That’s the way to start your day, let me tell you. At any rate I don’t drink but I do down quite a bit of caffeine to make it through the day. If you wonder why just ask Thing 2 he is the road rash king! He got a fresh one yesterday playing chicken with his brother on bikes.
If you don’t think Thing 2’s antics are enough or hammock stealing toddlers or a dinner cooking seven year old just ask Pee Wee, she has a few things to say about that…
Then again maybe it’s just the hat!
It looked like a good idea at the time, but now that I think of it who wants a denim tulip plopped on top of her head. After all she is a girl with some fashion sense unlike her mother!
Thing 1’s Apple Cinnamon Grits:
milk or non-dairy milk (I used Mocha mix)
I thought of a new way to make grits better.
Here are the directions.
Okay, first make the grits.
First you pick the amount of grits that you want to make. We make a lot everyday that we have some and we love it. My brothers and I eat all of it every time. Today I made six servings.
Start with putting 4 cups of water in a small pan (mom’s note- you’ll need a medium pan). Then you put it on the front burner and put it on high (mom’s note-if your mom will let you or you can get help with this step). Point the handle of the pan back so nobody can reach it and spill it.
When the water boils then you put 1 cup of grits in and set your timer for 5 minutes. Turn the burner on low.
When the timer goes off then the grits is ready.
Oh wait I forgot, when you dump the grits in mix it with a mixing thing; a wisk.
Then you ask your mom to cut one apple into small pieces without the skin.
Mom’s note- Thing 1 even took his own pictures to go with his recipe! 🙂
Now what mom?
Then you put one splash of Mocha Mix in.
Last part of the ingredients is put a little less than a spoon full of cinnamon and a spoonful of brown sugar in.
Mix it and eat it!
