The jeans I just ordered for Katie arrived and they looked brand new to me. Just $15.95 AND they met with her exact comfort and sizing specifications (she doesn't care about brand names, but we had found a second-hand pair of DKNY Soho jeans for her once and now they're the only things comfortable enough for her. Lame). Winning!
Oh, they make me laugh. They keep me on my toes. They bring LIFE to our lives. Sure they make us nuts sometimes. Doesn't everyone you love? Anyway, my specific example of awesomeness this week is a recipe created and prepared, from first ingredient to first bite, by my 10 year old. Imma cut and paste from her word document because it is precious to the max.

Applejack’s apple fries
You will need:
Two cups of flour
½ cups + 1 1/2 tablespoons of medium packed brown sugar
1 ½ cups of milk
½ cup of thin sheets (you can use an apple peeler for this) and then cut up into little leaves
3 tablespoons of apple juice or
About three apples cut into rectangles.
Here’s what you do.
Mix the flour, brown sugar, milk, apple leaves, and the juice in a large bowl. Set aside. Then cut the apples like the picture suggests, and set aside. Get a pan and fill it with about one inch of oil. Wait till the oil is very hot. Coat a few apples in the batter and set in the oil for only a few seconds. If it’s the right amount of hot, it should turn roasty brown. Turn it over to the other side and cook it for again only a few seconds. When you’re finished, serve and enjoy!
Y'all, they were good. So good! And the leftover batter got turned into pancakes. She's making a different recipe inspired by each pony. Out of her head. And then she cooks them herself. You guys with the tiny children: THERE IS HOPE ON THE HORIZON
