Oh. Before I get started, you might be interested to hear how much snow the storm blew in - am I right? We got - are you ready for it? Nothing. That's right, nothing. All the biped meteorologists said we were in the path of the storm, up to a foot of snow due in ... and we got nothing. You might be wondering, "Hey, Zim. Since you predicted the last snowfall, did anyone check with you?" Great question, readers! And the answer is, "No." Did I display The Snow Look? No. I did not. That should have been the first clue. But hey, at least there's a fresh batch of Stinky Goodness Treats to enjoy!
The process went something like this:
|"Did I hear you get the can opener out?"|
Sure. I'm 13 and am getting a bit hard of hearing, but I know when that can opener comes out!
Let's do a little Quality Control, shall we?
|"Oh, this is a fine, fine can!"|
I'd hate for us to go to all the trouble without checking the ingredients!
Next up, slice it up and fill the Stinky Goodness Machine!
It's important to oversee every step along the way!
And to clean as you go!
|"The cutting board's good to go, Mom!"|
After a bit of clean up, it's time to put the Stinky Goodness Machine out on the screened-in part of the deck. (I still don't understand why we can't do that in the house so we can enjoy the fragrance as it cooks!)
|"It's all set! Now to wait ..."|
|"It's going to take HOW long?!?!"|
I forgot that it takes a few hours. I thought Mom and I should do something fun to pass the time; I recommended zoomies!
|"Chase me, Mom!"|
All part of the process!
I hope those of you who did get this latest round of snow were prepared! Enjoy it for all of us - and if you need any help building a really cool snow fort, give me a call!
