13 days!!

I am so excited to see my baby in 13 days! We are going to my cousins wedding and then to visit with my family for about 5 days. 10 days in total for us together :)

Yes I realize no one but us cares, but I have nothing else to say really :)

OH I lost a good pair of shoes tonight *tear*

And Detroit won the Stanley Cup WOOOOOOOOO. I guess either way I didn't REALLY care but a coworker likes the red wings so I was all about them. It was over all a pretty good game but I would have liked a game 7. I just thought that it was so pathetic after the game, no one cared that they won and there were more reporters there than Detroit fans! Poor Detroit.

Someone mentioned that Don Cherry had commented that he always turns the game off for about ten minutes after the team wins the Stanley cup because he can't stand watching them hoist the cup.

Look there is something you should understand, yes every sport has their followers and I'm sure you'll all make up why your favourite sport is the best, whatever I don't care. Hockey truly is one of the best sports. You don't know what it's like, it's ingrained in you it's something you love, something you eat, breathe and live everyday. IF you are good enough to make it to professional there is one thing and one thing only that you are after, to hoist that cup. When you play and coach for SO many years, I can absolutely imagine you being bitter about watching others hoist the cup.

I'm a baking genius!!

I've been baking quite a bit lately, I made these sprinkle cupcakes:

They were okay, I thought they were kind of dry and that the frosting was a little sweet, but pretty much everyone else liked them, even when I told them to stop lying to me.

Then I came up with the most brilliant idea of apple pie ravioli. I know, what?? But I basically made Apple pie, I rolled out the dough and then put some filling on the pastry and then placed dough over top and used my ravioli cutter to cut out the squares. They were really really tasty, perfect instead of baking a whole pie or dealing with messy pie slices.
-Yes it would be more tasty with a slice of sharp cheddar, or vanilla ice cream.
I also made about 72 Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. They were SO good, they disappeared from work in less than 2 days.
It was fun, I actually felt the need to bake and it wasn't until my Dad reminded me it was the anniversary of my Avo's death that I realized why I felt like baking so much. I honestly do feel like I get my culinary intuition passed down from her. I often think of her when I am cooking a big meal or making something I am truly proud of. I miss her dearly, and I wish she could be here to enjoy her granddaughter. It's not fair, she was too young.
