Nelson Mandela quoted so eloquently…that spoke volumes to me today when I read it. “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” So true. Today Mac-n-Mo’s moved into the Freezer Aisle #6 at Vicente Foods and we practically SOLD OUT! Who’d have dreamt? There are dreamers and there are doers. I prefer dreamers who do. Nelson Mandela’s quote wraps it all up for me. Trail blazing is filled with challenges, but if we don’t blaze the trails, what are our choices? Same ole…same ole? BORING! Please share what trails you have blazed and what trails you would like to see others blaze? Believe me, I understand it doesn’t always seem possible to carve a path. But remember, everyone started somewhere and every invention was created by someone who refused to give up. The dreamers who do have proved the impossible can be done!
Did you read that Politicians have killed the traditional Easy-Bake Oven?
The headline caught this nostalgic healthy red headed-blue eyed morselist! WHY? It turns out the oven’s heating element, a common 100 watt incandescent bulb, will be outlawed next year. While I respect the efforts to respect our environment, I was sad to see my child hood dream of owning my very own Easy-Bake Oven disappear. My parents did not want me to have my own Easy-Bake Oven, but they did treat me to the mini size cake pans, mixing bowls & whisks, which allowed me to create the most “interesting” delicacies or as my sister, recalls, “disgusting concoctions of whatever I could reach, standing on my tippy toes, in the pantry & refrigerator.” The Easy-Bake Oven inspired me to bake, which I did with passion and gusto! One year,I baked a birthday cake for our dog, Porky. I mixed the batter out of dry dog food and peanut butter. Yes, I baked it in our BIG oven and the stench was God-awful. Mom came inside from watering the yard, yelling, “Mo, what in the world are you baking now?!” “I made Porky her very own birthday cake and frosted it with Cat Food Frosting so all of our pets can have a party!” Needless to say, that was the last baked cake Porky received courtesy of Mo’s Kitchen. However, I continued to experiment with endless recipes, some delectable and some were “gifted” to Porky & the Pet Gang.
The light at the end of this tunnel (or Oven Light) is the the Easy-Bake Oven was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame.
