Too much Pioneer Woman!!!

The boys woke up to Pioneer Woman's yummy Sleeping in Omelet this morning... and they were very happy campers!!!











Then Kyle walked by the computer and read that if you don't make this http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2007/06/the_best_chocol/ cake your life will be devoid of purpose .... so we "had" to do that too.






Did he do good or what...






And these lovely treats are strawberry and apricot breakfast bars.... also thanks to Ree.





(Nice arms TMAC... if you're into that sort of thing... like Ree is... but I'm not... but at least I noticed, so that's good!)

See these happy, toothless boys... very happy indeed... because after they finish this last bowl, mommy promised they could have some blue berries and home-made yogurt! YUMMY!

and because we're working on fractions... kyle quadrupled the recipe...

And let me just say, that's A LOT of brown sugar!!!

So I figured we'd invite a few folks to help eat it all... because we don't do left-overs (but I'm working on that).

So, my parents brough over my great uncle to enjoy all of Kyle's hard work in the kitchen... and daddy took a break from doing yard work... And we had some more friends stop by for dinner... and they enjoyed... all of it too!

ummm.... what are you doing SS, and why???


And HE thinks I'M High maintenance??? Go figure!!!

His mother... whom I LOVE dearly... ruined this great guy for his poor wife. But contrary to what everyone thought... that wasn't me... lucky for him... b.c. I DO. NOT. CUT. THE. CORN. OFF. "CORN-ON-THE COB." (Can you imagine???)

Anyway... I'm off to finish making cinnamon rolls for AJ's all-star team... cuz I know it's going to help us win today... especially since I stayed up all night making them.

AND... no SS... I will not, absolutely NOT ruin my boys...

(I hope... but if I start... feel free to help me out)

AND yes, I still think you are more high maintenance than I am... but it's close...

I'll give you that much!

You have been very busy!!
Those cakes and cereal bars look so good. They wouldn't last long in our house:)

Jenny said...

Yummy, yummy and yummy! See...that's why I don't visit her PW Cooks site. I'm trying to LOOSE weight...not gain it!

Kristen said...

Um, yeah. I am on my way over. I really think I do need some of that cake!

Yummy Yummy!!

And it so does not look like you are ruining those boys. And if you are teaching them to cook, looks like you are working on making some fine Hubbys! :)

Amanda said...

Oh, forgot to say, i have tagged you! ( hope you don't mind ! )

Dawn said...

That looks like a lot of good food. If you haven't tried PW's recipe for biscuits and gravy, you've got to do it. Only crumble the sausage in the gravy first. That's her only mistake. I love her recipes.

Leigh said...

looks like everyone had a great time!

Cheffie-Mom said...
