St Nick 2017

 This year Scott had to work on the morning of St. Nick's, so I took the morning off. Luckily I could be with Meadow when she opened her stocking. The night before I made "snow" tracks coming into the house. When Meadow saw them she said, "Hey who left those?"


 The other day Nolan and Meadow had gotten into her stocking and Nolan put her ornament on the tree. Chelsea didn't think Meadow saw it. When Meadow saw the ornament she said, "Hey how did he know I wanted this ornament?"


 I explained to Meadow the night before that we had to put carrots out for St Nick's horse. We didn't have carrots so we did parsnips instead. Meadow then suggested we give him some cabbage too. Then she realized the horse might be thirsty so we should also put out some water. And she wanted to put out toys for the horse, but I explained they were going to be busy going to other houses and that was very thoughtful of her.

 Her main thing that she asked for this year was a lollipop. Sadly when we opened it the lollipop came apart in pieces and broke off the stick. 

In all, she got a lollipop, snowman pajamas, snowman ornament, Arthur book and playing cards.

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late) Every new season I change the duvet cover.  Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that. I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins. I was wrong, we only needed two pans. By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch. As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m. While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. H

Honeymoon: Madeline Island Without a Kayak? At Least We Brought Bikes.

We made it safely to Bayfield without getting attacked by any bears . I think that's because of my wily driving skills.

How Can We Make Life Less Boring?

This weeks bread is Ciabatta. Scott had made this a few summers ago so we thought we'd try a variation and add caramelized onions and herbs. Nothing like cutting onions in the morning.  I'm really hoping Peter Reinhardt will find our blog and see that I'm making everything in his book and want to do a movie with me. It'll be called Brooke and Peter. I'm also gunning for a movie once Mark Bittman passes away. OK, I'm not. That' just weird. We did make oatmeal raisin pancakes from Bittman's Food Matters cookbook. Oatmeal pancakes? Yes please! These turned out much better than the oatmeal raisin waffles we had a few months back. I tackled this darn puzzle again.  Peanut (our cat if you didn't already know) loves whining. Mostly he wants to go outside or in the basement. This time I gave in and he had some kind of deja vu to his alleycat youth. Scott played on his phone while Peanut played outside. We both t
