We’re sitting under 10″ of snow and I’ve been sick for almost 2 weeks. When you don’t want to get dressed and can’t really go anywhere … what do you do?
1. Bath time for the kids. Maybe even twice.
2. Craft time for all!
3. Waste too much time online.
4. Cook and bake with healthy ingredients (that all turned out horribly):
a. Cook blueberry pancakes that your 5 year old doesn’t like (I used wheat flour and he noticed).
b. Bake banana muffins that taste horrible (used bananas that were really, really, REALLY black).
c. Bake oatmeal cookies with flax eggs and oat bran (That didn’t rise. At all.).
If you trust that I have been a victim of bad luck but do know how to bake …
I DO have a few tips that I thought I’d share:
Do you know that feeling of needing butter to bake but it’s still in the fridge and as hard as a rock? Cut it up into chunks and it will be ready to bake with in about 10 minutes.
You all know to coat your berries, chocolate chips, nuts, etc. in flour so they don’t sink to the bottom of whatever you are baking, right?
Moving passed the failed attempts in the kitchen and onto craft time:
Caeden likes to craft as much as I do. If I wasn’t too lazy to take a picture, you’d see a desk similar to this one, piled high with paper, stamps, markers galore, pencils, glue, glitter …
And as soon as Claire knew I wasn’t looking, it would be an instant disaster. Need to do something before the inevitable happens.
Yes, I think that is what I will work on today.
I especially like the hanger for displaying paper and art and that towel bar is genius. Are those hooks usually for shower curtains? I can’t quite place them?
