It’s catch up day here Meta Megan on this beautiful Fancy Breakfast Friday Morning. Is it beautiful out? I have no idea, I’m just looking at this photo and thinking of where I was last week. Dave and I went to an all inclusive resort in Cabo San Lucas Mexico to celebrate our 20th anniversary. This is the view from the breakfast buffet. The food was delicious. I left some cereal for the kids and Aunt Suzy!
I skipped a couple FBF posts in November, and I had two good excuses. I made waffles both Fridays and they were fine, but I didn’t take any pictures. I made pumpkin waffles the day after Thanksgiving, but I realized after I started that I didn’t really have time for waffles, and I made half the batter into pancakes. They were just OK. Nothing to write a story about. But speaking of stories, in November I did NaNoWriMo, where you write a 50,000 word novel during the month of November. (I guess it’s really a novella.) I did it, and I was very proud. The main thing I learned was that if I have a plan, I can easily write 2,000 words in a relatively short period of time. The other thing I learned was that if I keep typing, words will come out and then I’ll have a first draft to work with. Lastly, I learned that I have no desire to ever let anyone read anything. But my goal is to write a book, not to have people read my book, so mission accomplished! Just kidding, I plan to get back to writing and see what I can come up with in a second or third or 10th draft.
The last bit of exciting news is that I went to see the Smitten Kitchen author this week and I bought her cookbook! As I type this, the kids are eating not one but two recipes from the cookbook for what will be an exciting FBF post next week!
Very jealous of your Smitten Kitchen visit. I love her recipes as much as yours—-sometimes!
Did you take any food pictures in Mexico?
hilarious about the cereal you left for the kids. They should have a few tricks up their sleeves after all this FBF.
