Ode to the TV Dinner

We never try to cram too much into our spring break week.  Personally, I just like to see my kids unwind and relax and I always love to see what they'll choose to do with a little vista of time.  Today (in classic spring break form), Emma decided she wanted to bake some cupcakes.  One of Emma's besties gave her a copy of  Hello Cupcake  for Christmas and this is literally the first moment she has had to put it to good use.  Emma spent the afternoon in the kitchen and with very minimal help turned out an entire TV Dinner made from cupcakes! I thought her entire display was pretty remarkable, but I really chuckled when I saw those "mashed potatoes!"  Who knew caramel sauce and a slice of yellow Starburst candy could stand in for butter and gravy. This was the first of what I hope to be many sweet spring break surprises!
