It truly has been one terrific day....(Face Book readers...you may have already read about this)
I have had the privilege of spending the entire day with our oldest grandson....Tyler...
There are no limits when it comes to helping your grandson. Our day started around 8:30....We spent time together, getting a flat fixed on his truck. Next, we changed the oil in "Gypsy Blue" and by the afternoon....she was looking as sharp as could be, because of the tender loving care she received from the two of us.
The afternoon was filled with all kinds of fun....In the kitchen!
Seems that we have a romantic and a chef in the family.....Tyler wanted to cook dinner for his girlfriend, Kelsey! By the way, she is so adorable.. Kelsey loves broccoli-cheddar soup, so Tyler decided to make homemade soup for their dinner....
Oh geez.....he really is a good cook! He chopped the onion and broccoli....he made his base for the soup by melting butter and adding some flour....then, he added half and half cream along with chicken broth. Next, he added just a touch of nutmeg, some salt and pepper and finished the soup off with the sharp cheddar cheese.
This soup was Sooooo flavorful and delicious! Tyler then decided that he needed a dessert to make their meal complete. He baked cupcakes....iced them and carefully decorated them in colors that he knew Kelsey would love.
While waiting on Kelsey to get here, Tyler and I decided we had enough time to make a "Pumpkin Roll." He and I both LOVE a good pumpkin roll....The roll is in the refrigerator, just waiting on us to sink our teeth into it... I can't wait!!!!!
No time spent with your grandchildren is complete, if you don't take the time to give them a few words of wisdom. This is exactly what I did. We took a short drive and I was blessed enough to have some great conversation with him about life. Every young person needs to be surrounded with words of inspiration and encouragement. Funny thing is, Tyler always has his own way of blessing me with such wonderful, encouraging words!
Oh yes, I am one Happy, Happy, Happy grandmother!
