Last night was game night. The boys beat the girls (2 vs. 3) in a battle of wits and whistling. We played Cranium Turbo. Following that game I actually won at Quiddler! I think its cause I managed to snag a “house rules” bonus of 5 points for rhyming gi and ki, which lead to a “most words” bonus of 10 points, then I spelled geranium!
I had the bright idea of spending the most humid day of the summer making pizza dough so that we could add toppings before the games started. We had 2 wheat and 3 white crusts. The toppings included bacon, Canadian bacon, pepperoni, marinated artichoke hearts, olives, squash and broccoli. I also learned that you ought to clean out any crusty melted cheese from the bottom of your oven before you cook 4 pizzas at a time. There was a billowing black cloud and a yeasty smoky odor for a while, but my pizza turned out alright.
We also managed to watch Back to the Future I and II without falling asleep. I was surprised to learn that Micheal J Fox plays his daughter in part two!
