How is that as soon as I think things are manageable & I agree to one project two more are added on top?!?!  It just seems the days are flying by.  I have so many things to share -a new secret quilting project, thoughts from a ladies day retreat, gardening update, & an office re-organizing.  But for right now I'll just share a few pictures for a quick update.

 succulents...I see them all over pinterest & finally picked a couple up at Home DepotAnd then found this lovely old can in our garage...score!
 ha this rings true for any project. In my case Easter dresses that are not finished, only 10 days to go...

Are you left brain or right brain?!  I am about 50-50...interesting to think about.
 A couple weekends ago I attended a women's day at which the topic was "The Godly Woman" It was a really good day (I want to share some thoughts on another post).  A few days later I saw this sign & fell in love.  Then noticed I'd already pinned another sign with the same quote...apparently it had been on my heart before the woman's day!

 Find the sign here

Yesterday was just gorgeous and I was able to work in the garden, both vegetable & flower!!  Hoping to get some more done today (fingers crossed).

A favorite

In honor of Abby being 10 months old today I thought I'd share one of her favorite dishes.  Yes an actual recipe for a 10 month old - not just purees or soft veggies & fruits!  I first tried these Cottage Cheese Pancakes a couple months ago and have been making them just about every week since, they are popular with both Abby & Collins.  My mom made these for Collins a couple years ago, the recipe comes out of an old church cookbook. 

Cottage Cheese Pancakes
  • 3 eggs, well beaten
  • 1 c. cottage cheese
  • 2 tbsp applesauce 
  • 1/4 c. oat flour
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mix thoroughly.  Drop by tablespoonfuls on a hot griddle or pan.  Watch for bubbles to form & flip, just like cooking regular pancakes.  Yield 20-24 pancakes.

The original recipe calls for salad oil, I prefer to substitute applesauce but oil is just fine if you don't have applesauce.  To make oat flour simply put quick cooking oats in a blender & blend until it's flour.  All purpose flour works great too.
Proof's in the pictures :-)
The idea sounds kind of odd, but it makes a great finger food!
Super easy & quick to mix up - give them a try!

A garden update....potatoes, onions, & peas are in the ground!!  I've also started eggplant, bell peppers, & this guy inside.  Can't wait to see stuff coming up!

I'm linking up over here!
