Yesterday? No such luck.
Yesterday while pinning I ran across this photo....(not mine...the cool chick over at Brown Paper Packages)
I knew I had to make these for the kids....Little did I know how the day would get away from me....I told child #2 and 3 they could play until 5:45....(plenty of time to make these and fix dinner right?)
Nah...I was busy doing other stuff....and then got my ingredients for those sweet gooey goodness treats....Clock check...5:30 pm ...still no dinner. (directions below again took directly from Brown Paper Packages...love her blog name)
(ok back to me...Laura)
And leftover caramel I did have ...and leftover I did pour into a buttered dish....and leftover MELT IN MOUTH TREATS I DID EAT.
It was pure chaos while making these...
Reid was in the highchair demanding more cheerios...
Lily was jumping up and down wanting to help momma stir the hot boiling candy....
Oldest child wondering where dinner was....asking if I was sick or something since it was way past when I have dinner ready....
Mini Me insanely asking if she could stick her finger in the 230' boiling candy b/c it smelled so good. (deep sigh)
Then enter Hedgie (child 2) ....rushes into house with arms open wide saying "I'm here for my food...plate me up"
He looks around confused...."Did I miss dinner already"
Me: "No honey mommy hasn't made it yet"
(looks at siblings) "Is mom sick"
Lily: "No she's busy Interesting"
Me: "no Lily it's Pin-teresting"
Kate: "Now can I stick my finger in"
Me: "Not unless you want your skin to peel off"
Hedgie: "So .....does that mean we are having dinner tonight? "
Me: "Yes, but I was making treats"
Oldest: " but you always have dinner ready by 5"
Me: "well today I don't"
Hedgie: "soooo that's a yes, that tonight sometime dinner will be made"
Lily: "Mommy Mommy Mommy....you are ruining my apples...you are making them all brown..."
Mini Me: "no Lily she's adding caramel to the apples ....can I lick it now?"
This is the point I wanted to scream GET OUT. but didn't.....hubs walked into the kitchen and started and finished dinner for me.....(awww)
Point of story....
Don't start Interesting (as Lily says) at dinner time....
But do make this recipe It's a keeper.
