Day 280: Breakfast on the Fourth

July 16, 2012

I made us a special breakfast on Wednesday in honor of the Fourth of July. Here’s your plate:



Day 206: Homemade Starbucks

April 24, 2012

You love Starbucks, but neither of us loves to spend $5 for a cup of coffee. So instead of buying you Starbucks, I made it for you at home. I blended coffee, milk, coffee ice cream, and ice together, then poured the mixture into a Starbucks cup:

It was quite unfortunate that we didn’t have whipped cream on hand. But what the drink lacked in whipped cream, I made up for in sprinkles (though in truth, nothing can replace the former):

I even wrote your name on the cup to simulate authenticity:

I think I took this picture after I'd sampled some of the drink, which explains the fact that there's less coffee in the cup than in the other pictures.

Perhaps I should’ve given you the full-blown experience by calling out your name when your drink was ready.

Day 189: Mud Pie

April 7, 2012

On Wednesday, I made you dessert: chocolate pudding and Oreo cookies mixed, with gummy worms and whipped cream on top. I don’t know what it’s actually called, but my mom calls it “mud pie”:



In order to use the pot, I had to take the plant out. Still, I left a little dirt inside for authenticity. Just kidding. The pot had never been used.
