Act 3; Scene 43: April Fools!

We had some special guests at our house yesterday so I decided to make a very delicious raspberry cream pie to share.

Mmmm, doesn't that look delicious?

We also tried something new--home made restaurant style French fries with dipping sauce.


Well...April Fools! We enjoyed a raspberry looking shepherd's pie (which was delicious, though not sweet), and for dessert, some sugared bread sticks with raspberry dipping sauce.

The TRUE April Fools' joke here was that I placed the "fries" on wax paper, fooling everyone (including myself!) that it was parchment paper. A few minutes in the oven and we got the joke. The wax paper was burning! The house was filled with smoke and all of the fire alarms went off. And the wax paper melted into the fries, ruining the batch. I had gone to feed the baby, so Robert, Kris, and Mike made sure the house didn't burn down and made another batch--this time sans wax paper.

They really look like fries here!

Thanks for coming, Mike and Kris! Come again for next year's April Fools!
