As the weather is starting to warm and get spectacular outside – I almost forgot that I had a few last #Vday pix to share.
This year I got SPOILED by the hubz when he had these flowers delivered to me (I was #WFH). We then enjoyed our annual valentine’s dinner of fried chicken, bisquits and gravy with mash. I was a happy laaaadddyyy :P
The weekend prior I decided to do a valentine’s breakfast for my #fambam. Heart shaped pancakes, heart shape strawberries, whip cream and some blueberries (the hubz fav).
AAaaannnnndd I promise that is ALL for all of our vday celebrations this year :) #IPromise!!
It was one those mornings, when we had no plans, no where to be and all the ingredients to make some fun home made pancakes!
I made some banana oat pancakes using this recipe and the melty coconut cream (lol) was made using this recipe.
We spent the rest of the day getting office space inspo at Ikea, getting my steps in at the mall and just taking it nice and easy! #PerfectWayToSpendTheDay
So a few weeks ago, I finally made these bad boys.
They are so tasty (and filling – hello pumpkin). Buuuuuuuttttt kind of a pain to make…. guess I am not a baker after all. But I am glad I made them (ONCE!)
Despite the weather, we had a great weekend.
We took Miss for her first hair cut on Saturd
ay which was quite pleasurable experience. She looked like a doll during the entire process and her hair no longer resembles a mullet. Later in the day, we met some friends and went to Fantasy Fair
. I haven’t been there since I was a kid (maybe 9-10 years old). I remember it being a huge magical place full of midway rides and indoor play area which had THE-BEST slides and ball pit. It was all that and more. Just to see the sparkle in her eyes as she saw all the fun she was about to have. Of course every ride came with a lesson in patience because we didn’t do what my parents used to do (aka one parent waits in line while the other has the kid at another attraction).
Speaking of when I was a kid, since as long as I can remember… I’ve always been a cookie monster. But it wasn’t until recently that I thought I should start making them from scratch. I’ve got a handle on a few recipes and wanted to share them :)
This first one is perfect for the mid-week (or mid-day) pick me up. When it only requires 3 ingredients who’s is going to complain!
½ Cup of peanut butter
1 tablespoon of honey
- Preheat oven to 350 Degrees
- Mix 3 ingredients together in a bowl (mixture will be gooey and shiny)
- Place a heaping table spoon of cookie mixture on a wax paper covered cookie sheet, continue placing heaping tablespoons of the cookie mixture 2 inches apart
- Bake for 15 minutes, remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes before eating
scoffing down a dozen LOL
Sidebar: If you want to add the optional items, do so after the 3 ingredients are mixed well! (as you can see I added chocolate chips)
Cookies taste even better the day after (I stored them in the fridge and they were soo soft!)
