Fancy Breakfast Friday: Round Up

DSC02813

Can you believe it’s been a month of Fridays since I posted anything?  (Possibly more, but who’s counting?)  Where to start, where to start?  Well, I made babka for Grandma and Grandpa when they were here for Christmas, and we took a loaf to a friend’s condo for New Years.

My mom gave me this gorgeous china plate for Christmas, and I made my traditional blueberry scones to match it.  Hmm, I wanted to link to the last time I made these, but I can’t find a Blueberry Scone FBF, is that possible?

I also got this pancake dispenser from my mom (she gets me) for Christmas and let’s just say it’s very fun but also a great opportunity for #nailedit photos.

My attempt at a fun face… #nailedit.

Ok, this has nothing to do with breakfast, but I did make this Smitten Kitchen appetizer for Christmas.

Finally, last Friday, after a Christmas break that went into the middle of January and then a trip to Reno we got back into what seemed like a routine and I made these delicious muffins.  These are the blueberry muffins from the new Smitten Kitchen cookbook, but I used raspberries instead.

Ok, now I’m all caught up… but the breakfast I made today was less than stellar so I may need to double up this week. Back on track! Making Fridays Fancy in 2018.

>The week before Halloween, Luke recited “5 Little Pumkins” and I was very impressed. He rolled his eyes and said “It’s not like I just heard if for the first time this week.” So, if I was extremely impressed with Luke, imagine how excited I was when Jack started reciting the same poem. Poor Jack, he was running around on the Saturday before Halloween, talking about how he was going to be in a costume parade, and he and his preschool friends were going to recite the poem for the toddlers. He was very excited. So excited that I felt a twinge of guilt over blowing off the Halloween party at the daycare the day before. Oops. And without further ado, the video:

>But Soft!

>What light through yonder window breaks?

Well, he looks a little more Shakespearean without beans on his face. But this is a new pose that he does quite frequently and on demand. I just have to start quoting The Bard.
