Mother's Day

L has been really into helping out in the kitchen, especially
mixing or egg cracking you might have.
So for mother's day, we made homemade
sourdough waffles!
Sourdough Starter Recipe:
one cup warm water
one cup all purpose flour
1 tsp flour

mix in glass or ceramic bowl.  let set for 2-3 days. stir occasionally.
once starter develops sweet smell, place in air tight
container and refrigerate.

the recipe was martha stewart's except i used whole wheat flour instead of regular.  (and we didn't have any regular sugar so secretly i used brown o:)

 Here they are below topped with strawberries.  gotta get something healthy in there somewhere right?!

 Here's the sour dough starter all dolled up.
After all the cooking fun, we out for a momma daughter to get our nails done.  It was L's very first trip to the nail salon.  she loved it and actually tolerated sitting still....unfortunately she finished before i did and no longer wanted to be still.  LESSON LEARNED! momma goes first!!

 L was just old enough for soccer this year.  after a rocky start to the season and some spring time coughs and colds, she really came on strong for the end of the season.

 here's a shot of her foot work as she scored her very first goal! 

Better Late Than Never?

Whoa! I haven't blogged in over a month and it's no surprise here.  But, better late than never I suppose.  Here's a recap of what we did over easter.

We colored easter eggs using koolaid.  Fun. colorful. tasty.

 one egg broke en route from the grocery store.  oops.

we mixed 1 cup water with assorted flavors of koolaid.

 Here's a shot of L getting in on the action.  

After we finished L had to get in on the picture taking fun.  Here she is using my phone to take pics.  Future blogger??  I love how she's squinting one eye :)

we also made our own version of resurrection rolls.  by the time we made it to the grocery store, they were out of croissant rolls.  i guess everyone had the same idea that we did.  we improvised with cinnamon rolls.  (which i think were tastier!)

The easter bunny also came to visit.  for whatever reason I didn't get that captured on camera.  or, maybe i just can't find them. lol  we had our egg hunt and even included resurrection eggs in our hunt.

Happy LATE Easter everyone!
