I read once, long ago (I don't remember where) that there was no point in having a blog if you can't show what you had for breakfast. This was before Instagram. But I think it's true for both. So here's my breakfast. I have even blogged about this particular breakfast before (recipe here.) I make these often and I feel they warrant another mention. I call them Dutch Babies, which sounds like I am eating a small human from the Netherlands, but that's what we always called them growing up. I feel like I am cheating when I make these because they are so easy. I usually have it with maple syrup, jam, and lemon. And powdered sugar. Pete and I split half. So far the girls aren't interested, which is a good thing, because we only have one cast iron pan.
- Thank you so much for even more book suggestions in the comments of the last post. I hope to include them in the list too. (She said optimistically.)
- This book list reminded me of these music suggestions in an awesome list complied by you all, from a bit back.
- I get mad at linen. I always sew with it but try a bunch of tailored details and then it's hard to execute and gets off grain and hangs weird, so I am making some linen pieces and letting them be what they want to be—simple with few seams and darts. I'm just going to let the Hobbit out with these projects. I made a simple pair of elastic waist cropped pants that turned out great. And who wants to pay $89 for these?
- I would like to make some lime curd very soon. I got some at Cost Plus and know I can do better. I always make lemon curd, it's time to shake it up. I have been meaning to try grapefruit, too.
- Grammie has her last chemo appointment this week. What a long haul. She has soldiered on with humor, grace, bravery, and sass. She is a true inspiration to me. I think a dessert for her containing coconut is in order.
