I wish I had pictures to go with this entry, but alas, my camera is in the shop for repairs and hasn't returned yet. Nevertheless, I bring you...
Taco and Cupcake Decorating Night
That's right! Last night found me with seven guests in the house devouring tacos and decorating cupcakes.
Okay, I'll back up. A couple of weeks ago, I met my blogging buddy, The Gunfighter, for lunch. At the end of lunch, I said, "One of these days, you have to come over for dinner." To which the Gunfighter said, "Okay, let's do it!" So, we found a date on the calendar that worked all around. I also invited The Eco-Fellow (formerly The Legislative Fellow) and Sister No-Mo (formerly The MIG), as well as my friends The Circus Mistress and Dr. CancerKiller, and my housemate.
Gunfighter and Mrs. Gunfighter have an eight-year old daughter, the Soccer Girl (who wants to be a paleantologist, by the way.) I had to come up with a menu that would work for an eight-year old, so I figured tacos would be good. And I thought cupcake decorating would make dessert a fun activity.
I made six dozen--count 'em: six dozen--cupcakes: red velvet, yellow, dark chocolate, and marble. Soccer Girl chose and mixed the colors for the frosting. We had sprinkles and frosting in tubes for writing and we were off!
All-in-all, we had a lovely evening with The Gunfighter and his family. Gunny went home with my housemate's dead DVD player for "Shoot 'Em Up Fridays" and Soccer Girl went home with a half dozen cupcakes she decorated. Looking forward to having the 'Fighters at Chez Tewkes again very soon!
P.S. Gunfighter: Soccer Girl was absolutely adorable. You and Mrs. Gunfighter have done an excellent job! Happy Father's Day!
P.P.S. Note to Zanne: Gunfighter wore a kilt. He was still adorable.
