Wednesday was absolutely divine.
To try to make myself feel more welcome at church, I've decided to put myself "out there" for say and get involved in as many activities and groups as I feel comfortable. I've decided to just be myself and if people like it, then great. If they don't like me, then I've either got to reassess my approach or move on.
One of the activities that I have decided to try--at least for now--is a playgroup and potluck held twice a month in a hostess' home. Honestly, I feel intimidated by other mommies and so this is huge step for me to take. Today's theme was brunch and so I decided to bring along my Creamy Watermelon Pie. My husband tried to make it this time, and although it tasted just as great as how I make it, it did look a little different. Oh well. It's not what is on the outside that matters as much as what is on the inside.
Just like this delicious made-from-scratch cornbread. It didn't matter that it looked like cake as much as it mattered what it tasted like in my mouth. Perfectly sweet and flavorful.
(That baby back there is pretty sweet too. I especially liked it when he dumped his toys in the toilet for the first time while I was there. I just had to smile and laugh a little, because I know this won't be his last time to play in the toilet. I think I am a bad luck charm for kids being mischievous.)
This though. This! Oh my goodness. Lord have mercy!
This was the most delicious, delectably divine dish I have ever laid eyes upon or bathed my tastebuds in! This French Toast concoction was so divine with its butter syrup topping that it had me dizzy with deliciousness. So dizzy in fact that I forgot the name of it. Heck, I didn't even scribble the name of the dish down when I copied the recipe.
Creamy Watermelon Pie. Sweet cornbread. French Toast concoction of some sort. I was on a sugar high all afternoon. Then sometime around five I crashed. That is what you do when you're dizzy, right?
I've never been that intoxicated on sugar in my life. At least that's what I'd like to believe.
