Ha!!!  I did it, and got away with it!!  Happy dance, happy dance!  It's probably evil of me to be congratulating myself on getting away with something I probably shouldn't have done but I can't help myself!  Maybe I really am turning Troll!  Or maybe I'm just so tired of trying to do everything right all the time that a little sneakiness feels . . . . well, kind of rebellious and satisfying.   So, you know those Pillsbury Turnovers that come in a box in your grocery store?  You bake them into little triangles of flaky goodness filled with sweet, fruity yumminess - apple or cherry - inside, then frosted with the white icing that comes with it the box? I bought a box a couple of weeks ago, the apple kind.  I decided to bake them tonight.  Now here's where I got myself into a bit of trouble.  I like the dough, I REALLY like the dough.  So once I had dropped on the filling and folded them all into triangles, I noticed all that extra dough on the side points with no filling in them.  Those side points would probably burn before the rest of the turnover got done - I'm good at rationalizing when I want something.  So I pulled off one of the doughy ends and ate it.  That left the pastry lopsided.  Hmm . . . couldn't have that.  So I pulled off the other point and ate it too.  Well, now, that made it smaller than all the other ones.  If I didn't do something I'd be busted by my daughter - she's sixteen and on constant look out for any form of parental injustice.  I HAD no choice.  I HAD to pull the side points off the rest of them so they'd at least look the same size!  I peeked around the corner to make sure my daughter was still in her room listening to music - yes, still blasting and dancing away.  So I did it.  I pinched off all the side points from the remaining five pastries and ATE THEM TOO - yes I did!  Then I smoothed and patted them all around.  They looked a little stumpy, but at least now they were all the same size.  I smiled to myself and popped them into the oven.  When they were done I frosted them - why is it there's never enough icing in those outfits?  The whole time they baked I wondered if I'd get busted by the "Fair Sheriff" or not.  Well, we had dinner, then dessert and guess what - she never even noticed!!!  Slipped that one right past her!!!  HeeHeeHee!  Yessshhhh....... Do I feel guilty?  No, I feel FAT!  Dinner was scrumptious, I had seconds.  When it came time for small stumpy turnovers I had two!!!

Took a few extra minutes this morning while walking my dog, to enjoy the blooming Wisteria in the parking lot nearby.  Oh but they're gorgeous!  Bright lavender blue blossoms as long as my forearm and hand cascading over the trellis and down the supports almost to the ground.  They hung heavy over the orange, yellow and bright red Poppies.  It was the kind of site I just had to stop and take in. It was one of those perfect moments, beautiful spring sunshine, an abundance of some of my favorite blooming vines and best friend for company.  Sammy likes to stop and look at flowers with me, she sits right down beside me and she smiles too.
