Beth, Tara and Tim came over for a while and then Beth had to go for a bit to meet with a prospective student. Brad and Lloyd entertained the kids by building a wondrous fort. (Lloyd was supposed to write about the fort, but he fell asleep early. Feel free to criticize his fort as a favor to me – punishing him for not taking on more post-writing duties.)
After reading about Brad’s buttermints, I decided that making some would be a good way to pass some time. We vaguely followed a couple of recipes so it didn’t end up very ‘butterminty’, but we ended up with some edible play dough, and there ain’t nothin’ wrong with that.
Note: If you ever decide to make some mints and use a mold, follow the actual recipe. The candy needs to be very crumbly so it will come out of the mold. Or, just roll the blobs in sugar and have children eat them. Whatever works.
