From BigSister and MiddleSister
What a timely ingredient pair for this month’s Ingredient Improv Challenge organized by Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker. We two sisters are spending spring break together with MiddleSister’s two little girls. We are like peas and carrots! As we hear screaming from the bathroom, while we merrily work in the kitchen, we are reminded this wasn’t always the case. These two peas and carrots used to be more like oil and water. A phase we happily grew out of in our later years. We pretend that we are very different as grown ups, but we know that isn’t true. While we each maintain the personality traits that drove each other CRAZY as youngsters, we have learned to accept them. The good stuff is a lot more alike than we’ll ever admit. We did pretty good for two different girls that shared a room for most of our growing years though. One of us was neat and organized the other one of us was a pack rat. We aren’t telling who. Even though we fought against each other, it was the foolish other child that messed with one of us. We could scream and yell at each other all we wanted, but Lord help you if you did!
So, when faced with a challenge from the world, we did what we always do when push comes to shove. We put our heads together and came up with this recipe. We think our Mom will be proud.
