09 Mar Luck be a Lady?? Nope…not this lady, at least not tonight
Sure, other websites may have perfect little pictures, easy to follow instructions, amazing tutorials & the WOW factor. BUT…me…I prefer to show you the imperfections…the failures…the “ohmygoodnessdidatwoyearolddothat?” I like to say I help you feel better about yourself! :p
Confession: I always strive to make my party projects something Martha Stewart would be proud of. But the reality of it is…there are disasters, flops, cry-on-the-kitchen-floor-in-a-puddle-of-homemade-german-chocolate-cake-batter-that-just-cap-sized failures.
This St Patty’s day post is one of those times!
I envisioned creating a snack-type kids St Patty’s day post.
Problem # 1: I was going to make mint chocolate chip meringue four leaf clovers. Apparently, meringue is harder to make than I thought. I had made meringue cookies before but somewhere between then & now I lost the meringue mo-jo. The usual fluffy, full dollops came out flatter than me…at 9 years old when I wanted so badly to have an excuse to buy a training bra (Woah…TMI, sorry). They were pitiful looking & I SOOO wish I had taken a picture because you would’ve gotten a great laugh!
Problem # 2: Time…wasn’t on my side. I wanted to “set the stage” with a whole lot more pizazz but I ran out of time to get supplies.
Ok…so I guess that’s all the problems I ran into. Overall, it just didn’t turn out exactly how I wanted it. But let this be a lesson
to us all to me that using our creative juices sometimes gives us watered down lemonade. (Ok, so maybe not the best analogy)
Here are a few ideas if you want to set up a snack station for kids for St Patty’s day:
