I was onto......
I don't like to stay in the past for very long - I miss what's going on now - as in Valentine's Day is approaching and it's hard to resist. All the hearts and the red and the pink.
I plan to make a few things.
This Card(s) but with my own choice of paper and a few embellishments.
or go straight HERE for recipe without pretty pictures.
And I got those baking white cups for something. They're larger than the medium cupcake liners and they have body - as in stiff.
I just want to be very in the Valentines Mood? Tradition? Spirit?
But purchasing that red food coloring, well, I had qualms about it.
So MANY children have allergies to food dyes and I just wish we didn't have to use it.
But I bought it. I guess I'll use it.
I stood in Wal-Mart and tried to think of a very red fruit which would color whatever I make.
Pomegranates and Cranberries are all I could think of. Beets are really more purple and have a distinct Beet flavor. I love beets, but not in Cookies or Cupcakes.
and these red bags.
I have a very very vague and far away memory - it must have been before I was 3.
I think we still lived in our first house.
My grandmother (Ella) made for me, and Mary Ann (sister), and Suzanne (cousin)
a little valentine's dress out of red and white crepe paper - just for the moment and the fun of it.
If I was 2 1/2, then Mary Ann was 5 and Suzanne was 7 1/2.
Mary Ann? Have we talked about this? Do you remember it?
I remember loving it and being so glad to be included and how fun it was.
I remember knowing that my cousin, Rachel, was too young. She would have been an infant or not born at all.
I just might email my cousin, Suzanne, and ask her if she remembers it.
