Hard Work…Pays Off!


If you have the January blues like I do, let’s have some fun!  This time of year just feels blah to me.  It’s raining…all the time.  The holidays are over.  Spring seems too far away.  AND…I have the flu.  Let’s see what we can come up with!

All 3 of our kids rowed on a crew team in high school and the boys rowed in college as well.  These athletes work so hard and we were always looking for good nutritious food for them to eat race day.  But, they also need treats!

These kids practice 5-6 days a week for 3 hours a day.  I rowed myself for a couple years recently.  It is so much harder than it looks!!  I had just a little taste of what these kids go through.  Sometimes it’s cold…REALLY cold.  Sometimes it wet…REALLY wet.  It’s always exhausting!  Team sports teach more than just the sport.  It teaches us to work together.  It teaches us that “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts”.  It teaches us we must rely on others.  It teaches us that hard work, pays off!

I’m always looking for something fun and playful to make.  Occasionally I would take some treats up to the boathouse for the kids.  Just a little something to tide them over before they get home for some real grub!

The chocolate mice I made for Valentine’s Day a few years ago.  They are so cute and delicious too!  Cheesecake stuffed strawberries are another boathouse favorite, but my favorite are the cupcake hamburgers!

Have some fun!  Play with your food!!
