this week

this week
{"momcat" mug given to me by my mother for mother's day--it's "vintage"--my brother gave it to her in the 80's!}

This week I . . .
  • switched over to using my French press for morning coffee (instead of this)
  • was stressed out
  • enjoyed the Planet Money podcast on medieval economies (so interesting! here)
  • finished and photographed my green skirt
  • enjoyed wearing thrifted clothing
  • started "Polar Bears Past Bedtime" with Dieter
  • thought I missed Dieter's "Teddy Bear Picnic" at his school (but it turns out it's next week)
  • chose some new recipes from my "to try" file
  • geeked out and bought two special royal wedding magazine issues
  • tried Angry Chicken's slaw with magic sauce and it was yummy
So many little things happen in one week. What's on your list?

Those pancakes look magical! And I'm pretty sure that my aunt or grandmother had that mug - nice. My to-do list is a mile long at this point, so I'm thinking of just burning it and seeing where life takes me this week...we'll see how that turns out with my Type-A. ;)

Dieter and Finn should hang out. Finn is in a serious Magic Tree House phase. More than any of my older kids ever were (and they all loved them). He listens to an average of 2 books per day on cd (which is about 1.5 hours EVERY DAY). Anyway, love the mug! I need to go back through your archives for recipes. My hubby and I are doing a vegan month for May, and I know you have lots of inspiration there. :)

any chance you might share your recipe for those pancakes - they look so fluffy and delicious. Love your blog, haven't commented yet but read regularly.


Mary Beth said...

Sure, Janelle. Here you go:
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. buttermilk
1 T. oil
1 egg, beaten
1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder

Let rest for at least 20 minutes before making the pancakes.

Could you tell me which special royal wedding magazines you bought. I don't know which one to purchase.

Mary Beth said...

Mary Jane--we got the Life and Newsweek special issues. We especially LOVE all the childhood photos and pictures of Diana.
