(Pete and Repeat)
whipped the kitchen into a Christmas frenzy this weekend.
They crack me up.
Nice job guys!
But here's what was really sweet:
I was putting the goodies on a tray, and for whatever reason, I had a hard time getting the brownies to look decent. I have made dozens of trays in my day, but I just didn't have my arranging mojo going on. I thought about my mom, who was the expert on beautiful food. What would she tell me?
Just then, Bethany walked into the kitchen and I asked her what she would do. Without hesitation she took over, and instead of working from the middle out, she worked from the outside in. Voila!
When I told her she was channeling her Grandma Rae, she looked at me quizzically and asked, "Why??" I told her, "Because she was the artiste!"
Funny how my mom could show up in the granddaughter she never met. If that wasn't enough, she put the final touch in the middle--like Grandma's signature.
