and my butt grew bigger with just one bite

Today was a busy day!  They always are with Lena coming back from the weekend so I decided to try and keep us busy in the kitchen.

We made a Chocolate Rocky Road Cake. While I mixed Lena did too. There was a lot of jabbering going on not sure what she was making but she was busy           (thank goodness).

Then of course she got to lick the spoon

and here were our results:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It looks and sounds a lot more rich than it was but I have no doubt that it    enlarged my lower half a tad bit 🙂 (recipe is below)

Then we made chicken and rice enchiladas with a wonderful green sauce I had made from the garden last year and frozen  -yummy!  We made Lena two without green sauce so she wouldn’t burn her little tongue.
