I'll be honest.
This post is going to be short but sweet.
Lots of sweets.
I slept on my neck wrong.
And I can't move it.
We had Ashlyn's IEP with the school district this morning.
Which stands for Individualized Education Plan.
Or Interrogation Extravaganza for Parents.
Basically, I hate these meetings.
They stress me out.
And I am exhausted.
But life goes on, right?
My brother and sister-in-law hosted Thanksgiving this year.
It was fun.
And a bit crazy.
With a ridiculous amount of food.
And the boys spent much of the time upstairs watching football.
Requesting beverages via text.
In a ridiculous movie theater room that my brother had installed pre-Kennah.
She's worked wonders on his former bachelor pad.
But I don't think she's allowed in that room.
I was instructed to bring desserts.
I made three.
I also brought two appetizers.
5 pins = PinterPalooza
Pictures of 4. You'll have to trust me on the 5th.
I'll start with the appetizers.
Because that's what you're supposed to do.
Which is really Co-worker Cary's.
But who cares where it came from.
IT IS AHHHH-MAZING.
Which is really Southern Living's.
But again. Who cares?
And picture-less. Sorry.
Both are tried and true.
Made a zillion times.
They will make you the life of the party.
And gain 5 pounds just by looking at them.
But we don't care about that either.
Now... on to the desserts.
Make this almond cake. Now.
This picture does not do it justice but it's FABULOUS.
Do I dare say the best cake ever?
I almost want to say the best cake ever.
But I won't.
But I really, really want to.
Super easy. SUPER delicious.
I also brought Salted Caramel Chocolate Pretzel Bark.
A standard favorite.
Although next time I'm going to cook the crust for a shorter period of time.
Or use parchment paper as it stuck to the bottom of the pan.
We let dad have some after he put the spoons away.
I'm going to sleep now.
For a long time.
Link up and tell me what you've been up to...
I can't wait to see!
