If you know me, you know that crafts are not one of my interests. Margot, like many little girls, adores them. She'll happily cut pictures out of magazines, bead endless lengths of string for necklaces and bracelets, or paint ceramic figures. Not me.
But tonight when we struggled in the front door after work/school, Margot had an idea that we make a recipe from her cookbook: Mice Taters. My tired brain wanted to say no, but my heart (and mouth) said yes. So, together, we made these little guys as a side dish to pork chops, applesauce, and steamed broccoli. They're twice-baked potatoes with veggie faces. And guess what - it was actually fun!
