There’s still a bit of time to make something yummy for tomorrow! Well, ok, time is rather ticking away, but there’s still time to rush out and buy some fruit and whipped cream! And then tomorrow you could mix up a batch of pancakes….layer them up and there you go, a fruit rainbow for St. Paddy’s day! I saw this idea on Pinterest, but then when I started putting it together I realized that whatever was used in the photo was not pancakes (cookies I think). (P.S. I just found out that the idea was from i am baker! Yes, cookies, with an awesome cream cheese frosting!) So my pancakes were a bit floppy and the stack was leaning a bit….solved that with a straw right down the middle of the pile! The “fun” part is to layer your fruit in the order of the rainbow. If you don’t remember that order, watch the fun little video at the end of this rainbow post, then you’ll never forget again!
My mixer went crazy while I was getting a pancake out of the pan…when I looked over at it, a ring of cream was blobbing out of the bowl. What a goopy mess! But it didn’t actually surprise me….that’s how I usually cook….messy…. 😉
Anyways, to cheer myself up, I love to watch this video for St. Patrick’s Day! An 8 minute account of St. Patrick’s life for the kids….even with flannel boards!
I’m gearing up for the next party around here…slowly but surely. Today I made up some color palettes for a cute, girly party, involving Lalaloopsy Marina Anchors doll, Hello Kitty and a cute little pink sock monkey. My Pinterest board for this party is getting out of hand…but I love dreaming about all the colorful and edible things that can go on at a little girl’s party….so many things, so little time to get them done!! 🙂
Not sure if these color inspiration palettes are actually useful for anything, but I have fun making them!! (it relaxes me to play around with the photos and colors)
Maybe someday I’ll make a card using one of these color palettes…or a digital scrapbook kit….or paint someone’s door in stripes…..who knows. Today’s color inspirations come from different projects I’ve worked on this summer….
New recipe for Almond Sour Cream cupcakes, with a hint of brandy extract in the frosting! My life has been all about yellow and orange this summer…you might kind of notice that…boy do I Iove those colors!
I find that I cannot photograph light green objects!! Either my camera’s wonky or the light from my windows is just awful or….something else…
