it's muffin tin monday. li'l tot asked me why we haven't participated in a while. and my answer was *makes mental note to participate the week after*. one month later, here we are.
so this week, we're "rowing" cranberry thanksgiving (by wende and harry devlin). and i thought it'd be perfect to turn the girls' snacks into a celebration of cranberries. mayhaps i got carried away. but no. no no. i don't think i did. carried away would be: me dancing in circles with my arms outspread singing "zombie" along with the cranberries. which i did not do. i did it to "dreams", instead.
today, my girls had oatmeal cranberry cookies. craisins. jellied cranberry sauce wedges. cool whip topped with frozen cranberries. a bacon sandwich on cranberry swirl bread. and cran-grape juice.
the girls ate all the cool whip. and bacon. they also finished their juice. the rest was toyed with. it made me a little sad that they weren't impressed with jellied cranberry sauce. but then i ate their jellied wedges and i wasn't sad anymore.
on a side note. this past weekend, we went to epcot to visit "china" for our "row" on the story about ping (by marjorie flack) and guess what. ocean spray delivered an amazing cranberry bog exhibition! it included the raker harvester man in waders fellow! they even handed out packets of craisins. how awesome is that. totally awesome. that's how. talk about perfect timing! i was quite impressed. and i wasn't even drunk. unlike the lady who was behind me rolling her r's furiously and screaming "margarrrreeeetahs!" <--- it's not an epcot story unless i mention a drunk or ten. or twenty if the food and wine festival is going on.
