The little man has decided that he now sleeps every hour and a half. It must help the teeth come in. So, I got a bit behind on my to do list and then...
I ended up joining the boy in one of his naps. I slept for an hour and it was sooooo lovely. After I woke up I discovered I had a crippling need for PANCAKES!
So simple to fix, you think. Pancakes are easy, right? Not so much for me. I have made pancakes through so many different types of restricted diets (I have even made pancakes with just eggs and almond flour) that I now chronically overthink them. I haven't made a good batch since V was born. Boo.
All was not lost, however. My shining white knight of a husband rode to the rescue! He swooped over to the coop and got some (gasp!) wheat flour and made a beautiful batch of fluffy, buttery PANCAKES!
Now that I have been fortified, I can finish this post!
A May Day Repast
I was at the coop doing the shopping for the week yesterday and saw that the first delivery of ramps was in! If you have never had ramps and you live in a place where you have access to them you must go out right now and get some! Their season is, like, three weeks long and only comes once a year. Ramps are kind of like if an onion and a leek had a wild love child. The bulb-y part is good for sauteing and has a mild onion flavor, but the leaves are the bomb. Really. They are the bomb.
My favorite meal this time of year consists of ramp leaves wrapped around fresh mozzarella bits. That's it. Nothing else. You should try it. Mmmmmm.
I took two adult sized shirt sleeves, and made sure they were the same length. I measured the distance from the back of the diaper to the front of the diaper (front and back rise) and divided it in two. I then added one inch, making 9 inches total. I cut down the seam of both sleeves 9 inches and then sewed the two sleeves together along those cuts.
I made a casing for elastic, popped it in there, and I was done! Yay pants!
Now that I have made one pair that was not a disaster, I will make many many more, and probably get a bit wild with it.
