brain dump

I got the ball rolling today on getting Penny baptized. I've been putting it off, but it's time to get it done before she gets any older. I just get nervous about doing big things like that, and standing on ceremony in public. But the church is the one I'd like her to grow up going to, and where she'll most likely go to school, so I'm excited to get her started there.

I made a Boston cream pie last weekend. I meant to take pictures, but it was probably better that I didn't. It was super ugly (all the cream spilled out around the sides) but at least it was tasty! I used the recipe from here and would probably make it again, only use less pastry cream (or try a different recipe for the cake part).

My house is slowly becoming a disaster area again. I really need to make a clean sweep but it seems like we've never been home lately. Soon! Maybe later this week.

Penny is blowing raspberries all the time now. She's still super smiley, and crawling all over the place. Pretty soon we're going to have to start using a baby gate!

Labor Day is coming up and we don't have any plans yet. What's everyone doing?

which church/school?

is using less pastry cream really the answer? ever? :)

Holy Rosary. It's the one Kim and I have always attended, and it's close and should be affordable for school. I'd love to have her in SAA all the way through but it's way too expensive.

I think that particular recipe might also be delicious (and less messy) as a cupcake. Pastry cream as a filling? Okay!

Beth's going out of town this weekend. I'm going to a concert Friday night and playing a little poker on Saturday night. I work Sunday morning.
If you guys have an open night Sunday night, let me know.

I love Boston Cream Pie...and really in my experience: the uglier the dessert, the tastier.
