Hello Wednesday!

Hello Breakfast!

I absolutely love when the weather decides to be decent enough so I can have fresh berries everyday for breakfast! And peaches with this yogurt…

No half the fat here. I’m breastfeeding, its okay. I need that extra fat. And I need this left over piece of Spinach Mushroom Dubliner Quiche.

And a piece of Dave’s Killer Bread with natural peanut butter smothering it.  

Seriously this stuff is AWESOME!

Well actually all of this was awesome.

See these beauties? These little suckers are called Chewbeads. I’ve been waiting on them for weeks!  And there they were, waiting for me when I got home from craft group. I’m pretty sure Zane knew they were for him. Okay both of us. But he knew cause as soon as I put them on he wanted to grab them and then of course chew on them. Which is exactly what they are for. I have a smart child.

He’s pretty cute too.

Especially when he’s crawling around wearing his cloth diapies 🙂 There is just something about a little baby butt in cloth diapers. So stinking cute. Pardon my pun. Har har.

Tonight my good friend Stefanie and her husband came over with their son CJ, who is 3 days older then Zane for dinner.

And we made this. How good does this look?

I am referring to not only the Spanakopita and French bread (I forgot to take a picture of my Greek salad) but also to this fantastic plate. This was Cody’s first Father’s Day gift. Zane helped. Yep that’s one of his little mitts. I actually made this plate with Stefanie so it’s only fitting to share it in this post 🙂

Look at this face. Pretty perfect huh? Zane was showing off.

Root beer floats for dessert 🙂

We had a great evening. I should have got more pictures but I was busy cooking. I usually have more prepared so I can visit but I decided to plant some creeping thyme that I bought at Home Depot a couple days ago…… And then I decided to prep some wood for a crafty 4th of July project. Then Zane got hungry. And then I realized I was out of onion. You can’t make Spanakopita without onion! But Stef bought an onion and I just had to wait to start dinner till they came over. So all was not lost. I got a few things done that needed to be done (okay the wood preping was maybe just for my sanity, I’ve been thinking about it all week!).

It’s way past my bed time so I’m off to bed. And those 4 loads of laundry that need folding, they can wait till morning.


Easier Than Pie Peach Cobbler

Here are your  ingredients. Pretty minimal huh?

4 cups fruit (I used peaches cause they were on sale for less then a dollar a pound)

1 1/2 cups Flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 1/2 cups milk

1 cup sugar

1 stick butter

9x13in pan

Start by turning your oven to 350 degrees and place your stick of butter into your 9x13in dish.

While the butter is melting go ahead and cut up your fruit. These peaches are about 1/2 in thick. If you don’t like the skin feel free to peel your peaches. And if you don’t like peaches then use four cups of berries or whatever your little heart desires.

Measure out your dry ingredients into a medium bowl. Stir. Then add your milk and stir.

Add in your sugar and stir. Use less or more sugar depending on what kind of fruit you use. If your using caned peaches you want to add less. But if your adding say, rhubarb use more.

At this point, check your pan. When the butter is melted remove it from the oven and add your mixture.

Don’t stir! Add your peaches, fruit, whatever your using, on top.

Stick your pan of deliciousness in the oven for 40-50 minutes or until its all golden brown…

Let cool for 5-10 minutes before serving. Its best warm and great with vanilla ice cream, but honestly I like it best just by itself. And by like I mean love. I had already dug in well before dinner was even ready. But hey, there is nothing wrong with having your dessert first. Not in my book! So enjoy 🙂
