For the Food on Fridays carnival, any post remotely related to food is welcome—though we love to try new dishes, your post doesn’t have to be a recipe. We’re pretty relaxed over here, and stories and photos are as welcome as menus and recipes. When your Food on Fridays contribution is ready, just grab the button to include with your post. It ties us together visually. Then fill in the boxes of this linky tool to join the fun!
Food on Fridays with Ann
My son wanted cupcakes at lunch on his birthday. I failed to put it on my calendar and forgot to fix them in time.
He strode to the pantry, pulled out the box of Funfetti cake mix and whirred it together with eggs, oil and water. He confidently dropped paper liners into the muffin tins, plopped batter into them, and baked the entire batch himself.
“It’s fun,” he said.
“A person might as well do fun things on his birthday,” my husband observed.
“Exactly!” the birthday boy exclaimed, grinning big while bits of batter dripped from the edge of the bowl onto the counter.
And just like that, as if his last name was Baker, he made his own wish come true: cupcakes after lunch.
Happy birthday to my capable, confident, 11-year-old son!
