Do you ever go out to eat somewhere and after eating think “I can make that”? Most of the time its when you have a really good meal that you want to recreate at home. Sometimes you try something that you know you can make better at home to begin with. That was the case of with this four berry skillet cobbler. We went out to dinner, the cobbler was meh, but I knew I could make it amazing at home. So I did. And I ate it straight from the skillet. [No judgies.]
Ryley had a dance recital two weeks ago and we let her pick the restaurant after it was over. [Here is her super cute dance costume!] Her first choice was McDonalds [or old mcdonalds as she calls it], but that was quickly vetoed. We ended up going somewhere else because it has a nice outdoor patio with a play place for the kids. Which we all thought was a great idea. Well, everyone except Ryley.
She had already had a meltdown in the car on the ride over to restaurant because I brought the wrong shoes. She didn’t want to wear her pink mary janes, she wanted to wear her flip flops. And man did she throw an epic fit to let us know it. Crying, sobbing, yelling at us that they were the wrong shoes and she didn’t like them.
Once we got out of the car she suddenly forgot about her shoes. When we finally get to the patio and tell her go play, she refuses. I don’t know if she was still pouting because of the shoes or if she just didn’t want to go play. Either way, she sat at the table with us while Avery ran around and played.
Finally she decides to go play with the other kids and starts acting like her normal self. By this point we have had lunch and were waiting on dessert. [Hey, we were celebrating her dance performance!] Although the kids had fun and we were in good company, the dessert was meh. Which is always disappointing. So I came home, whipped out my skillet and copy catted the recipe. Only better. Because its good. And I didn’t have to sit in a car with a crying four year old arguing over shoes. [That might be the sweetest part!]
