Cooking disaster!

Ok guys, yesterday I made a strawberry pie. Or should I say strawberry soup with burnt crust! It was pathetic and it all started with what should have been a perfect crust getting burnt in the oven. It was all downhill from there folks. The recipe which I might add will never use again looked good and I got it from a magazine of my ex-sis in law's about 5 years ago appeared to have promise written all over it but alas, I guess it just wasn't meant to be! So instead of my pie looking like this...It looked like this...
I think I will go make another batch of those Choc Chip cookies :(

On the upside, I went to the school last week and the kids were all doing some entertaining stuff. Candace pretended to be a teacher and said she was gonna teach the kids how to swear that day. Mesa was a box of Weet-bix and Blaze was...well, just Blaze. On the way there I saw this cute as little van. It looks almost like a toy van its so cute and little! Here's also a pic of Rick enjoying his corn on the cob the other night. I wasn't able to post it with the post b/c I was at work.
