St. Patrick's Day

Last year, we got together for diner with the Wiens family on St. Patrick's Day.  Aaron made a delicious meal of corned beef, cabbage, and potatoes.  I asked him a few weeks ago if he was going to do the same thing this year.  Thankfully, he said yes!  So, this year, we once again got to enjoy a delicious St. Patrick's Day meal. For dessert, Aaron made a Guinness Chocolate Cake with a Bailey's Cream Frosting and Grace and I made some chocolate cupcakes with mint frosting for the kids. 

Since the oven was already warmed up from baking the chocolate cupcakes, I let Grace try some baking on her own.  We had some ripe bananas so she chose to bake some banana chocolate chip muffins.

Grace and I used to bake a lot. With busy schedules, it just isn't easy to find time to bake anymore. It was really fun for me to watch Grace bake!  She was able to do it without any help from me.  Yet just another sign that she is growing up!
