Recently my lovable and funny twin granddaughters, Tori and Brianna, spent the day with me. We decided to work on a few crafts as the weather outside was not "play outside" weather.
The girls are six now, so I thought they would be able to do some simple weaving and make some beaded bracelets. All we needed for the project were yarn, pony beads and duct tape to hold the bracelets while they wove them. They were so proud of their bracelets, that they made by their very own selves.

So I said "Let's make DIRT and feed it to Happy!" (Happy is my husband, their grandfather. I love it that they call him Happy. Makes him feel special.) I showed them a picture of a recipe for DIRT, and they got all excited that we could make this concoction and trick him into eating dirt.
Here's the recipe, by the way:
2 cups cold milk
1package (4 servings) chocolate instant pudding
8 oz. container whipped topping, thawed
1package (16 oz.) Oreo cookies, crushed in a ziploc bag
Mix all of the above ingredients, and load into clay flower pots.
Drape gummy worms on top.
Serve with a smile and a twinkle in the eye.

It all goes to show - women have such power in the kitchen, don't you think?
