I have two daughters and we spend a lot of time in the kitchen baking and trying new recipes.
We have a LOT of funny stories but one of the FUNNIEST is when I decided to let my girls help with Thanksgiving dinner last year. We aren’t big on sweets but we always have pies, you have to have pumpkin pie with Thanksgiving right?
I decided we would make them from scratch instead of buying them like we usually do. It was the girls’ job to measure everything out. My 8 yr old daughter was in charge of the sugar and my 6 year old was in charge of the spices. I was busy making mashed potatoes and working on the turkey so I let them at it making the pies.
The pies came out beautifully, they were picture perfect! I set them to the side to cool while we ate our dinner. After dinner I cut the pies and added the whipped cream. The girls were so excited and they were so proud of their desserts. My husband bit into his and looked at me. I bit into mine and eeewww. It was all spice – A LOT of spice and NO SUGAR. I asked what happened to the sugar and apparently my 8 yr old put it all into ONE of the pies. All of the spice went into OTHER pie I was too busy cooking the dinner to notice!
Next year either I have to pay better attention or we are back to buying our pies!
I hope I win the contest with my story! There is also a sweepstakes that is part of this contest where Happy Family will pick a funny feeding story to award $20K towards your child’s college education!
