like i am domestic and stuff
i can't bake.
i try. i make cupcakes--- from a box. i stuff the pre-made frosting into a ziploc bag and do a little faux-piping swirly action on the top and pat myself on the back.
i make no-bakes.
i make apple crisp or peach crisp.
i have messed up a texas almond sheet cake more times than i have done it right.
i know the reason. i won't follow directions and baking is all fussy about precision. i bow to those who can and who do. i don't have that kind of discipline. when the wooden spoon is in my hand i must improvise, i must create, i must mix it up...all kinds of puns intended.
but today after a day filled with little cleaning jobs (like cleaning out the mail holder, homework boxes and jewelry box) i decided to make this little beauty. and if it looks a little blue, it is suppose to.
since we have just inched into the new year and are all full of resolutions, i used blueberry applesauce instead of oil.
i couldn't help myself.
i had to do a little of my own thing.
luckily, it was scrumdilioumptous.
how to not have to rely on tony for the baked goods. he can still do the vacuuming.
