I am eating Top Ramen tonight and filling out book fair orders for the girls.
Book fair orders are a magical.
I remember as a child my teacher passing out book fair flyer's filled with all sorts of books, posters, and sometimes games. The flyer smelled good, and I think I enjoyed the smell of the paper as much as the books for sale inside. (I am a paper-smeller-one who smells paper, napkins and books. Bookstores are equivalent to Bath and Body Works to me).
I would race home to view the flyer for books. With my large red marker I circled the ones I wanted.
I was so excited when Claire brought a book fair flyer home...same great smell and same great books. I gave Jane and Claire a marker in which they went crazy circling almost every book. We had to narrow it down to a few. (a past-time I recollect well)
Then after the darlings went to bed, I realized we didn't have any green food coloring for those sneaky leprechauns to change our food into green, so I sent Mr. Nielson (my personal leprechaun) to the local grocer down the street.
Why, he just walked in the front door-why, what is in his hands? Green food coloring AND another chocolate cake...still searching for the "one" you know.
So, tonight I wrote a check for the book fair, finished my ramen and now it is off to put this sore body to bed.
Thank you all for your chocolate cake recipes, I will try them-all of them
Please check this out, it is good and informative.

I hope you will too.
