Great Big Weekend

Our weekend was big.  There was a lot of cooking and eating.  We went to the movies.  I attempted to play a fiddle.  Kev played some drums.  Daphne played some kazoo.  We went to a cooking class, had two play dates, and I went to Curves.  It was fun and crazy and exhausting. 

Wegman's has cooking classes for kids every other Saturday for $5.00, so the Daisy troop went over the weekend and learned to make smoothies, trail mix, and fruit tartlets.  They had a blast.  And it was only $5.00!  Wegman's is awesome.  If only they had amaretti cookies.  But that's another story.

Next weekend, we have nothing on the calendar.  So, Saturday, we are going to have Family Star Wars Day.  Daphne has been getting points for trying new foods.  She finally reached her goal of 20 points, and now she gets to watch Star Wars.    We're going to make a whole day of it.  There will be things like Darth Taters, Wookies and Cream ice cream, and Ham Solo sandwiches.  My dad suggested Obi Wan Cannoli, which is an awesome idea, but I don't like cannoli and we are already having the ice cream.  But if you have any funny Star Wars food pun suggestions, please comment.  Perhaps Princess Leia cinnamon buns for breakfast.  I reckon I'll be up in the middle of the night thinking about this.

May the Force be with you...

Star Wars came out when I was in 3rd grade (or was it 4th grade? dang).

My parents went and saw it, but wouldn't let me go because they thought it might be too violent. Afterwards, they decided that it wasn't -- but they didn't take me. So all the other boys in my class were doodling Tie Fighters and X-Wing Fighters on their Pee-Chees -- and I had no idea what that was all about.

Regarding the food -- perhaps your household needs one of these:
