What happened to the lazy, hazy days of summer? When I was a kid it seemed like summer lasted forever. When I was a young mom by the time summer ended I was really ready to get those kids back on a schedule. Now that I am an empty nester, LOL who am I kidding I am long past being an empty nester. My nest has dried up and blown out of the tree. The older I get the faster time goes. Is it just me that this has happened to?
I hate how fast time flies! I feel like summer is almost over and it doesn’t help that I am getting ready to take a trip to Atlanta and will be gone for 10 days. My far away kids arrive in Lincoln the same day I do. Won’t that be fun? Speaking of fun I will actually be on the same plane with them from Chicago. I can’t wait.
However, between now and then I have plenty to do and only a week to get it done. We have a birthday to celebrate, yup, my fella is having a BIG birthday. I won’t tell what it is but it’s pretty big. We need to celebrate. I have bread to bake, granola to make and a downstairs to get ready for action. For five days ALL of the kids and grands will be here, just think of the fun we will have with a 12, 7, 5,4,2 and 1-year-old. I would guess we will all fall into bed each night. Well, everyone but the kids.
Oh, you want to know about Weight Watchers–well finally I settled down and lost 3.7 pounds this week. I know it’s not very good but it’s not WW fault it’s mine.
When we use to visit my husband’s parents his mom would always make Swedish Pancakes–my son loves them. Today they are mostly called Crepes.
Put in a blender
2 T oil
3 T sugar
1 Cup flour
1 1/3 milk
Blend well. This is actually better if you make the batter the night before. Spray your non-stick skillet and get it pretty hot and just pour enough batter to coat the bottom of the pan. Don’t turn the crepe over until it is almost cooked through then flip it over and roll it up. These are really yummy and you can either use syrup or grandma served them with blueberries.
