Making Guacamole

Posted by on Aug 31, 2010 in Uncategorized | One Comment

I’m certain that I read about this some where, but I can’t for the life of me think of where. The preschooler had a blast with this (even though he refused to mash the bag with his hands!). All you do is put your usual guacamole ingredients in a sealed bag and mash. To serve, […]

Boston Cream Cupcakes

I have no idea why I thought we needed these; I guess it was a craving of sorts. I had to have them. Really, it started about a month ago. It intensified until I finally made them on Friday, with preschooler help, of course, to celebrate the first poo in the toilet (as opposed to […]

Watermelon Popsicles

Posted by on Aug 28, 2010 in Uncategorized | No Comments

These are the easiest frozen treat ever! Well, maybe aside from frozen grapes… Simply blend seeded, cubed water melon in your blender; then place in popsicle molds or cups to freeze. If you go the cup route, set a timer for about an hour, and insert the sticks then, after the pops are partially frozen. […]

Knitting Dilemma

Posted by on Aug 27, 2010 in Uncategorized | No Comments

I feel in love with and bought this lovely yarn nearly three years ago when I was pregnant with the toddler. I had every intention of knitting something for him with it, and really, I still plan to knit something for him with it. I have this one LARGE skein of handspun in a relatively […]

Chocolate Chip Gooey Cake

I’ve been wanting to try this idea for a while. Really, I’ve gone for other versions of what I had in my head, but none of them worked out quite right. Then I read a post of Sarah’s about Gooey Butter Cake, and I thought that’s it! I was looking for a way to make […]

So I learned that…

…if you give your 2 year old a vacuum and enough time he’ll giggle while he cleans up the rice he spilled at all over the place at dinner. We spent another afternoon in the kitchen, and, so far, it’s all been yummy! More to come tomorrow!

Slowing down

Posted by on Aug 24, 2010 in Uncategorized | No Comments

We’ve been just so very busy lately. There are so many appointments to go to these days; I feel like I am meeting myself coming and going. While sitting out front with the boys this morning I quite literally could not keep my eyes open. I am having to make lists of lists to even […]

Singin’ in the Rain

Posted by on Aug 23, 2010 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Sometimes a trip out of doors starts with rescuing a ladybug that somehow landed in the kitchen sink and ends with changing into swim trunks followed by asking for umbrellas. Sometimes a mama (okay, most of the time) just needs to go with it. It was a great afternoon!

Two for One: August

Posted by on Aug 21, 2010 in Uncategorized | No Comments

I’m going to apologize for my recent missing posts; I normally share with you folks 5 or 6 times a week. Of late, however, I have, well, slacked off a bit. I’m a bit more tired these days as we head for trimester 3, and there is just so very much to get done around […]

Pasta, with help

Posted by on Aug 18, 2010 in Uncategorized | No Comments

The boys and I spent much of the day yesterday blissfully in the kitchen. In addition to the chocolate chip granola bars, we happily produced another fresh tomato gratin stew, a trial batch of honey vanilla ice cream (that was lacking *something*), and a recipe of homemade pasta. The boys had a blast helping me […]
