Friendship Bread Fiasco......Just say NO!

Ok, so note to self.....If someone comes knocking with a Friendship Bread starter do not answer.....turn down the lights.....turn off the noise......and act like you are not home.....If you end up answering.....remember to give ALL your starters away.....Ok, Ok, I am being silly.....but seriously, until I read that I could freeze it, I have been making Friendship Bread like mad......it was fine when Shawn's Parents were here.....until I decided I didn't have anyone to give the starters too.....so Yes, I kept all 4......So the good news is I did learn you can freeze them....but I had already started the 10 day process so I couldn't really freeze any until today.....and speaking of today can I just tell you I am baked out......I baked 6 loaves of Friendship Bread (I only have 2 pans) and made a Chocolate Pudding Cake out of a Friendship Bread starter......and I still didn't use all the starters I had.....Yes, I had to throw one out....but was excited that I could find so many variations of what to do with the starter....there are two more beside the chocolate that I want to make.....But for now I am taking a break and have stored my 4 starters in the freezer.....Now we just need to eat the a ton of bread on my counter.......but we all like it so I am sure it won't last long.....I may go give some to the single guys across the street......We shall see.....

Other then my baking insane-ness and working, I have not done much else today......I have tons of laundry to fold.....YUP, my laundry washer is back to his old tricks of washing and washing and washing w/o folding......I suppose its ok since he is not a very good folder anyway (sorry honey)......The girls had a good day tearing apart their room.....they called it "Playing a game," but they slid their mattresses off their toddler daybeds and were sliding down them into a pile of stuffed animals.....I should have taken some pics....but they played "this game" for a 2-3 hours.....All we could hear from downstairs was non-stop girly giggling.....So funny......even Lila was enjoying the fun! She sure does love her big sister time!

MJ was excited when I checked the mail and Nanna had sent her an American Girl Catalog (MJ calls it her Dollie Magazine)....Now she won't put it down.....See what I mean.....

And here is a pic of Kiara helping me in the kitchen.....she was taking a pic of me and the cake.....but I caught her with my camera.....
