When we were at my parents’ house a few weeks ago, I made D her first pancakes! My mom has a gluten, preservative-free type pancake mix (Pamela’s brand) and it was SUPER easy to mix up a little batch for the two of us. D loves “Meenas” (bananas), so I made her meena pancakes and used coconut oil. Mmm…she loved it. Of course, a lil bit of Michigan Maple Syrup (best in the world…like lots of things in MI!) helped make it amazing.
We had a ton of tomatoes and basil on the counter, so I chopped them up into tiny pieces and threw some on top of a plain pancake…it was actually SO GOOD! I would definitely do it again. It’s not something you’d put syrup on but it is really good. 🙂 Can you tell I like to experiment in the kitchen? Sometimes it pans out, sometimes it gets thrown out. 😉 I also usually skip the measuring cup. Just “feel it.”
D loves her new sandbox! 🙂
My lil farm girl loves going “Ou-side” and playing with the “bawwwwk baawwwks.” The chickens are used to her and Tuck running around with them and they go about their business as usual!
Baby often steps on my feet when we’re outside! haha. It’s too funny. They all follow us around the yard like little ducks at times, but Baby is usually THAT close. 🙂
See that little tiny egg? There have been plenty of superstitions about those eggs…some good and some not so good! Some people call them “fairy eggs” and others call them “witch eggs.” It basically means the chickens system created the shell before the egg was fully developed. Not a problem unless it happens regularly. 🙂 The extra large egg directly across from the tiny one is most likely a “twin” egg…2 yolks! I thought this was a pretty fun collection! Hope you enjoyed it!
Friends & family, if you ever want to come out & see our chickens/garden & bring your kiddos for an educational & FUN “field trip,” just let me know! I’ll send you home with some farm-fresh eggs too!
