Things I've Posted on the White Board

Lunch: Cheesy Pigs in a Blanket, Chips, Veggies and Dip
Dinner: Chili and Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

So, today I was feeling creative and chose to grace the the white board with some illustrations. Here is the one I put up along with the serving size of today's lunch.
(Please note this is a reproduction, they guys don't splurge on colored markers)

Bet you didn't know I was such a talented artist huh? As good as that reproduction is, the real drawing was really magnificent. It is unfortunate you weren't there to see it.

The next one requires a little explanation. I spent the better part of this afternoon making dough for cinnamon rolls. While the dough isn't difficult to make, it takes a lot of steps and requires a lot of sitting around waiting for it to rise. Well, after all that I put it in the fridge and got ready to go home. The problem is, the dough will continue to rise in the fridge unless you poke it down a couple times. My mom discovered this over Christmas when I left some dough in their fridge that I was planning to bake the next day. Yeah, it grew over it's bowl and was threatening to take over. Since I'm making 3 times as much dough for the guys, I envisioned mass chaos unless I let the guys know how to wrangle the dough. So, I left detailed instructions as to what to do in case the dough looks like it's going to take over. I left them with dire warnings that the dough must be checked. To further illustrate my point, I left this little cautionary illustration on the white board:

Wonderful, non? I know the guys appreciated it because I got a text as soon as I got home praising my note worthy artistic skills.

Thought you might like to know...
