A short sequel

I owe a birthday post since we now live with a four-year-old, but have neither the pictures uploaded nor the energy tonight to recap T's big birthday adventure.  Tonight's birthday update will be simply that we managed, in one Sunday afternoon, to unknowingly expose about two dozen kids to strep throat since Andrew was on the couch with a 102 fever just a few hours after returning from Thomas'  festivities at the local gymnastics academy. That, my friends, is how sickness spreads like wildfire.

In the meantime I'll post a short follow-up to my last Outtakes post. 

We celebrated Great Grandma Sarah's 89th birthday tonight and at dinner Andrew announced that he had a factoid to share.  Once he had our attention he informed us that if you cook peanut butter for long enough it will turn into a diamond.  When asked where he heard that he said that it had to be right because he read it in a book at school entitled, "Weird But True." 

There you have it. Get to baking.

I wonder what you get if you use nutty peanut butter?

Just fired up my oven! It's almost as good as money growing on trees!
