the smoke alarm didn't even go off once!

Our Christmas present to Mom, Aunt Donna Sue, and Kacey
was for us all to go to a brownie workshop
at Viking Cooking School.

So Saturday, we met up in Greenwood at Viking.

I thought a lot about an activity we could all do together.
Painting class was successful and
seeing Jersey Boys at the Orpheum was successful.
And I think this was too.

We had a lot of fun spending the morning together. We learned a few tips,

made some yummy brownies,
and didn't catch anything on fire. I didn't even burn the caramel sauce!
I could get use to someone putting all the ingredients out
and then washing all my dishes!
Nobody even cared that we got flour everywhere.
Carly almost got left out
because the website said that participants had to be 16.
I called to verify and was told again that the classes were designed for adults.
Kenny talked me into taking her anyway.
So glad I did. She had a great time and we would have missed her!

There were fancy names for all of them but basically we made
peanut butter cheesecake brownies, a raspberry blondie,
chocolate, chocolate brownie pops, and
an espresso mini brownie with caramel.

Fun times!

LOVE the cooking school. Wish I'd known yall were here! I think the "rules" are more like "guidelines" because they were willing to let Grey do the gingerbread class even though he's no where close to 7. Looks like yall had a super fun time!!
