Weekend Picture Update

Things have been pretty busy here. 
Full of family & friend gatherings. 
I miss seeing the people I love everyday.
So this weekend has been lovely. 
Hope you all have a lovely start to the week. 


Get in my belly

The aftermath of oatmeal, a banana, an egg and rice crisps (so much stickiness!). This kid will eat anything and everything. He is a connoisseur of food. It's something I have learned to become grateful for, after hearing of kiddo's who don't want to eat anything. It's always been this way, he has never not wanted food. A couple of his favorites: avocados, sweet potatoes, veggie rice crisps, yogurt and any grain cereal in general. He has this sixth sense . . where I'll be trying to hide that I'm eating (usually something sugary, fattening and yummy), and I'm a good hider. I'll hid it behind a blanket, behind the counter . . . in another room. . . but to my dismay, despite my excellent hiding techniques, he always know that I'm eating food and immediately he wants a bite. So yes, I have come to be grateful that he always wants food. I don't know what I'd do if he didn't. 



Lennon playing happily with a paper dutch hat. He doesn't seem too thrilled to be wearing it . . he'd rather play with it. He also loves to play with my keys. 
One day they will get lost forever . . . 


Ice Cream and Cake

This weekend we had our birthday celebrations. I made Eric his favorite, Red Velvet Cake. It's a sheet cake, home made too. ☺ It was yummy, if I do say so myself.  We also celebrated at Texas Road House with friends, followed by arcade games and good conversations. It was a fun night and I'm so glad we got to see some of the buddies. T'was lovely. ❤
(p.s. the cake was red and not that dingy copperish color, bad lighting, sorry!)



Our friend Eric had an itching for some good ole Butterbeer, so he called us and we had ourselves a little Butterbeer party! The recipe he had said it tasted exactly like the Butterbeer at Universal Studio. I've never been there . . yet . . so I don't know. I do know however, that it was delicious. So my Butterbeer fantasy has been fulfilled . . . for now. 

1 Bottle Cream Soda
1 Tablespoon of Butterscotch Syrup  
1/3 Cup Heavy Cream
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Tablespoon Powdered Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

1. Freeze cream soda just until it gets slightly slushy
2. Whip cream, sugar, vanilla all together until it gets thick and frothy 
(basically whip until you are satisfied with the frothiness)
3. Pour soda into glasses
4. Pour froth on top of soda
5. Drink & Enjoy! 
(to further your satisfaction, speak in a british accent, say a spell or two and wear scarf)
