Julie got me these cool Pampered Chef frosting mechanisms. Even though I said that I was done with decorating cakes, I really wanted to try these. I made spice cake with vanilla pudding (an experiment that turned out well) and used store bought frosting with some food coloring. We had some people come over and they seemed to be impressed. Thanks Julie!
I also used my new dutch oven to make my favorite chili. We took it to the CS BBQ today and it was all gone by the time we got home. Success!
