I get these ideas … a half an hour of my life, gone. What do I have to show for it? A sticky, green mess and another story for my “not like the picture” memoir.
Ever since I saw this cute idea for “Clever clovers in Family Fun magazine, I knew I’d be making them today. Above you can see evidence of my attempts as I acted out a real-life Amelia Bedelia in the kitchen story. I burned the white chocolate, tried to use peanut butter to “stick” the clovers together instead. It didn’t work. I couldn’t figure out how to use the stupid icing things and then decided to make my own icing and just ended up with more of a sticky, green mess. I finally drizzled them with the icing, sprinkled them with green and orange and walked away.
I also tried to make Leprechaun pudding where you put green drops in the bottom of a bowl, top with vanilla pudding and act surprised when it turns green. Fun idea. Except Sam decided he doesn’t like vanilla pudding and refused to try it even if it meant no dessert. He is, however, still begging for “one more white messy thing” aka “clever clovers.”
I think I’ll stick to writing.
Especially because the kids were just as delighted with a few drops of green in their oatmeal and clover-shaped toast with sprinkles.
