Welcome to Prarie Pi. This blog exists to journal and document the memories that our family experiences. Pi is "an amount of type that has been jumbled or thrown together at random." We hope to assemble in words and pictures the daily thoughts and activities that happen in our household. We do this to help those that are distant from us get a glimpse into our days so that the miles that separate us won't keep us apart.

We Had Lots of FUNnel Cakes

"We have bought them and eaten them, and they are very delectable, but NEVER have made them. It will be a unique experience. Grandpa's idea.......we'll see if it works.
Should be fun......and yummy."
~Quoted by Me on Monday night
It WAS fun and and the funnel cakes WERE yummy!

Grandpa bought a kit from Bed, Bath and Beyond for half price and we decided to try it out late Monday night after the basketball games.

It was very easy. Just add water to the mix.....

Pour batter into the specially designed container......

Place the metal ring (from the kit) in a small pan. Add oil.
Pour batter.

Grandpa was the official cook. Even though it was his first time, he made it look like he had done this many times before.

His funnel cakes looked perfect!
State Fair quality!!!!

Add a little powdered sugar....

or strawberries and whipped cream.....

and you have a tasty treat in minutes.

Grandpa says he's leaving the kit at our house.
The official "Passing of the Tongs" ceremony was conducted and now Moe is in charge of making the next batch.
Thanks Grandpa and Grandma for the fun experiment!!
