I don’t feel like all that much happened this week… these winter weeks are kind of all blurring together. I was doing really well but now I’m starting to get a bit stir crazy. I’m in hermit mode more than ever with little L in the picture.
I did do some baking, though, and have some good recipes coming in the next few weeks so that felt good. It seems I’m getting better at baking things that can get done during nap time. Not a bad thing! Oh, the other thing I’ve started doing is the NYT Crossword Puzzle with my mom. She loves to visit with L (okay, loves is a minor understatement), but when he is napping we sometimes feel like doing something other than staring at each other and folding laundry. The crossword puzzle ended up being a perfect activity because it actually makes me feel like I’m using my brain for a change. Plus, I feel like a genius when we complete most of the puzzle.
Now for this week’s updates
Most popular recipe/blog post: No Churn Cookie Butter Ice Cream (yes, AGAIN)
Three favorite things I pinned all week:
Salted Caramel Peanut Butter from Eats Well With Others
Easy Chocolate Lava Cakes for Two from Bakerita
Devil’s Food Cake with Hazelnut Crunch from bon appétit
I hope that you are all having a wonderful weekend!
All the cold and the snow makes me never want to leave. Here is to hoping March equals Spring.
I used to do the NYT puzzle all the time, but now I’ve fallen out of the habit. Maybe I’ll pick up a paper today…
Yes, just a bit of an understatement……!! Love him, love him, LOVE HIM!!!!
Great recipe roundup! And that cookie butter ice-cream sounds so ah-mazing! Yum!
