Things that I wasn't supposed to be a part of, so I stayed in bed as long as I could.
I think I already said in a previous post I didn't want sugar today. And I knew they weren't making smoothies. This was their creation:
My healthy crêpe recipe...
With Mickey Mouse ears, "just like Dad makes."
With strawberries and whipped cream, which I also requested. (I make whipped cream with stevia instead of sugar, so there's no sugar on that plate.)
And I love the homemade gifts on Mother's Day...
Here are some pictures of just a few:
A very cute pop-up card.
And my very own award...
A paper flower bouquet colored with scented markers so the flowers have a real scent...very creative.
And the real flowers they all gave me yesterday.
They also wouldn't let me help much today. Every time I tried to do something they made me plant myself on the couch.
Tim asked earlier today what I wanted for dinner...
Then after close to forty-eight hours of not sleeping, he finally fell asleep. (It's shift work, not Tim who gets blamed for the lack of dinner at our house this evening.)
Then out of the blue Joie asked if she could make a peanut butter and pickle sandwich...which is funny because a friend just posted on my wall on facebook a few days ago that she remembered making peanut butter and pickle sandwiches at my parent's house when we were in college.
But Joie learned it from her mom (my sister)
Who learned it from our mom.
And suddenly I was craving peanut butter and pickle sandwiches also, so in honor of the peanut butter and pickle sandwich being passed down through three whole generations of moms, that's what we had for dinner.
And chips, because that's what Gabby wanted (Lay's Natural...check out the ingredient list here... probably not considered health food, but that's not a bad ingredient list.)
"And everyone grab some carrots or peas out of the refrigerator," I said, but I don't think they listened. (It may very well be that pickles were the only vegetable my children ate today.)
And the healthy crêpe recipe just in case you're dying to try it...
(I have said before I'm not a talented cook, correct?)
I put 8-10 eggs, 1 1/2 cups of oats, and about 1 cup of almond milk in the Vitamix and blend it beyond recognition (the oats become the only flour).
Heat butter or oil in a frying pan or skillet and pour in batter and cook.
The recipe was created out of desperation last year to feed a allergy-ridden child, and we continue to use it in place of pancakes. Adjust the ingredients to get the taste and texture you want. If you use vanilla almond milk you don't have to add sweetener.
Toppings we love: strawberries and whipped cream, 100% pure maple syrup, fruit spread... I suppose peanut butter and pickles could also work.
Hope your Mother's Day was a good one!
