So, on Mother’s Day, our Dave took over Sunday breakfast with Dutch Baby Pancakes. Oh.My.Word.
It was excellent! Filled with fresh fruit, a dollop of lemon curd and even a spirt of Reddi-whip.
Definitely more time needed on the treadmill...thankfully, reading on the Kindle helps to pass the walking time.
Back in the kitchen this morning, I tried out a Welsh cake recipe - I enjoyed these at Brecon Beacons in Wales last October. Used the copper cutter I found in one of the little Welsh villages we visited...sweet memories.
Sultanas and spices add to the taste of these little lovelies - not quite a crumpet or English muffin. A little more “cakey” - (And requiring even more treadmill time)
Our hard freeze, frosty nights are hopefully now a thing of the past. Last week sure made for extra work giving all the onion plants coverage in the raised bed and keeping starter plants snug in the potting shed. Our weather guys tell us by next week we could see 80 degrees. So it goes here in Wisconsin at the edge of the northwoods. Perhaps we can finally enjoy sitting out on the deck and I can stitch some more moths and bees onto the last of the Rowdy Flat applique blocks. Looking forward to getting all the blocks together into a flimsy before starting in on the borders.
We continue to be busy here - not bored at all though missing being with friends - there was a successful Zoom session involving a glass of wine with some of our quilting sisters the other day and just got word yesterday, one of the LQS’s has reopened - again with restrictions in place, but it sure will be nice to see some new fabrics and catch up!
Meanwhile, everyone, continue to stay safe and be well. Hoping you find ways to stay busy too.
