The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 23

The Good:
I tried a new amazing looking recipe for shabbat dinner. Good news: it's amazing tasting. Bad news: it didn't want to vacate the pan nicely. Better news: it made a delicious trifle!

The Random:
Avi sent me this wicked cool etched glass glasses. One has a map of the Boston streets and the other the marathon route. Not random, but pretty cool to see glasses etched like this!

The Fun:  
The much anticipated COLOR WAR happened on Thursday! The fifth graders are captains, there are three teams, and the spirit is contagious. We spent the morning at a local park playing various sports, then back to school for a BBQ, and more color war activities (songs, cheers, d'var torah,etc). I was a judge for the final presentations - ahh the power!

If you consider that the glass has a map of the streets of Boston....then it is very random indeed. You know the old joke about the streets of Boston being completely random and with no plan whatsoever.

I could eat the strawberry dish with a spoon, no problem. The etched glass is pretty. Looks like a fun time with the kids.

The strawberry almond cake looks delicious and when it tastes good, looks are of little importance. Have I mentioned how cool those glasses are? Well, they are super cool. End of school (and I am guessing you all are getting close, right?) - activities are the best - enjoy!

I'm cracking up - yes, the best dump cakes & trifles are usually born from another recipe falling apart in some way. :) Love that you found the good in that situation.

Have a great week Tamar & congrats on completing your race!! That was AWESOME!

That trifle does look good. Those glasses are neat. One of our camps here does a Color wars challenge for the entire week. Blessing has decided she is not going to do it this year.

That's getting creative with what would have driven me to tears - the recipe.

I always enjoy your fun and random shares. The map of Boston is just crazy. Mike told me the streets are laid out just horribly and you must drive like a maniac to get around!

Ahh yes, the power indeed! The Color War sounds like a lot of fun too!

Great idea to make a trifle. It looks amazing and refreshing. I really like those Boston glass. Those were a great find. Wonder if they do other cities.

Those glasses remind me of a funny graphic I came across a while ago, comparing the streets of New York to the streets of Boston...random them! This is a great post, happy to have found you (via Claudia at Images by CW)
