Here’s our week . . .
I made burritos twice this week. I guess I had a craving.
Discussion on Silas’ drawing. I think they both decided that Silas “scribble scrabbles.” Brooks did tell me Silas is getting better with his coloring.
I made this delicious soup this week. I definitely suggest adding the fresh parsley, lemon, and olive oil.
I tried to take his picture but he was pouting. He had basically eaten a green marker.
Making rainbow pizza. Silas liked the purple potatoes (raw) and Brooks likes the tomatoes and peppers.
Silas also enjoys licking the flour off the cutting board.
I made onions rings. If you try this recipe, only use one large onion. I had a lot leftover with no batter to dip them in.
He really likes his boots.
We have a winner. The buttermilk pancakes from this cookbook has now become our go to recipe.
On Friday, we invited a friend over to watch Frozen. We made snowmen out of ebelskivers, carrots, and pretzels.
Then we added ‘snow.’ The kids really liked this part.
We also ate ‘ice cubes’ (blue jello) and had vanilla milkshakes.
This is what my kitchen windows look like when I make pasta.
This morning I tried out a trick on making frothy milk without an espresso machine. It worked! Unfortunately, it doesn’t work on rice milk so only Mark got to enjoy this trick.
Mark made more pumpkin bread. I think we only have 3 quarts left of pumpkin puree.
This lunch went over so well that Silas scolded me for not making enough lunch when I picked him up from school.
This is what my Friday night looked like (along with having a Frozen party in the living room).
I love these cheeks.
A new batch of pickled onions. If you have never made these, you really need to give it a try. See you next week!
