Tonight was Cookie Baking Night. In attendance this evening Emily, Alli, and Emily's friend, Julia. Tonight was Emily's birthday choice (she turns 13 at the end of this month). As is our Cookie Baking Night/Birthday Tradition, Emily got to pick the meal and the "cookie". For supper, she chose: Hamburger gravy over mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, honey BBQ chicken wings, and root beer floats. For her "cookie" she wanted to make chocolate mousse.
We made the mousse from scratch, so there was chocolate melting to do.
And of course, decorating. We put the chocolate mousse in little chocolate cups and decorated them with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Alli was in charge of the chocolate shavings.
As you can see, we ended up with some pretty fancy little mousse cups.
When we weren't making mousse (which took up a big chunk of the evening), we were reading from "Sammy and His Shepherd (chapter 5) and watching a little "Finding Nemo" (Emily's birthday request).
As usual, a fun time was had by all.
