Nachos Navidad with the Rogerses




When Meadow requests big pancake, you make big pancake.

So, Brooke made big pancake. See how that works.

 While Theo napped, Meadow and I went to the library for a Gnome making class.

 The description made it sound like more sewing would be involved, but we still had fun.

 She made a girl gnome of course.

It looks just like Meadow.

Then I left the kids for a few hours to go to work.

We made forts and Meadow danced around.

Little guy has fun with anybody.

I came home to reading time.

We hadn't hung out with the Rogerses for a while and invited them over for a nachos feast.

You can't go wrong with nachos.

We would've hung out with the them more, but we didn't realize they were actually living in the cities full time.

And of all places they live a block from our old house.

Theo was loving the company.

Little Dora and Harper just loved playing in Meadow's room. 

After they left Meadow and I fell asleep on the couch. 

I guess the party got to them.

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
