Things Gone and Things Still Here

Riding a wave of domestic bliss.

swaz worked late and no. 1 went to see the Thirty Nine Steps at the Randall's movie night thing so nos. 2 and 3 and I had scrambled eggs, played Clue, and made chocolate chip cookies.

I've been keeping a vanilla bean packed in sugar for a couple of years now. I hadn't used it in a while and that sugar was fully inundated, and I used it all in the cookies. After I told them the vanilla would then go on to flavor another jar of sugar, the kids eyes got really big when they realized how potent a vanilla bean really is, and how much better a real vanilla bean is over flavoring or even extract. They were excited like they figured out a secret. Moments like that are why I love being a mom. Or why I love baking. One or the other.
