Mint Mania

Today I went to visit my Aunt Phyllis. We spent the day making mints for my grandparents anniversary party. Their 60th anniversary party is on June 30th and we are just trying to knock things off the to do list. I had never made mints before but it was way easy and it ended up being fun. I thought it would be some huge process but it was very simple.

All we did was mix 3 ounces of cream cheese with 3 cups of powdered sugar, added a little mint flavor and some coloring and mixed it all up. Then you roll the goo in sugar and put them in the molds. The key is to use a lot of sugar so they pop out of the molds easily. We made close to 300 of them. It didn't take that long and I tasted a few and they are really yummy. In fact after I explained to Grandpa what the appropriate mint response was he let me know that they were the best mints he had every had in his life.

Tomorrow I should do some painting but the pool is calling to me so I may wind up spending the day soaking. Heather is visiting Kelsey this weekend so I'm not to motivated to do some big project on my own. Swimming sounds way more fun....

Yummy on the mints and I didn't know they were easy either. Learn something new everyday.

Enjoy the pool, and don't feel guilty either. :)
