It has been a rough week plus here. I’m hoping by the time that this posts everything is back to normal. For now, though, I am still in the middle of it. We started the week with bad sleep, lots of bad behavior, and a fever that turned out to be nothing. Then the week ended with a virus for half of the family…did I mention this was with Easter? Sigh. And then just as that half of the family got better, another family member started with a different virus. Here I am worried and wondering when it will hit me. I mean, I can’t possibly dodge all of this, can I? I really hate seeing my boys sick and so sad. But let’s try to remember the happier moments with some pictures to transition back to our usual Friday Favorites content:
Many months ago, the Fudgelet spotted this recipe when reading through a cookbook. He wanted to make it when it was Easter time, so I saved it and pulled it out again just a few days before the holiday. He was very excited and happy that I had remembered, and I was very excited and happy that he helped me make them! Not so long ago he couldn’t roll a ball of dough, but he started doing it some with Play-Doh so I knew he could do these.
I know we are a month into spring already, but I figured this was as good a time as any to wrap up winter with some pictures. Maybe you will see something of interest for next winter.
On the hunt for a different recipe, I flipped through and the Fudgelet saw this. He can’t resist rainbow treats (see me making this and this and this). So here we are again with a different rainbow. What are we celebrating with this one? Well, maybe my dad’s birthday. Maybe some good news I had today about the Chiplet, who by the way can eat these. Candy melts as a frosting are a great allergy-friendly option, by the way.
If you want to refresh your memory from 14 months, here it is. I left off talking about his snuggles, and really he is still like that. He has separation anxiety in such a big way. It started when he was around a year, but it has gotten worse over the last few months. What makes it really bad is he mostly wants me. Even K isn’t enough to appease him sometimes. I think part of it is he sees me as his food source (he doesn’t like to eat much for other people) and his source for sleep, so if he is hungry or tired, he wants to come to me. He also wants to come over to me to check on me and make sure I’m still around and okay. So, all of this to say that he is still quite attached. I’m not worried, though, since I remember the Fudgelet was also quite attached and he has no problem being dropped at school; sometimes, he won’t even say goodbye until I remind him!
I know it is a day late, but I don’t have a new pie recipe to share for pi day. I didn’t want to let the day go by without saying anything, so I decided to do a day after post showing some fun pies I’ve seen. My fingers are crossed right now with the hope that I can make a dairy and/or nut pie for the family and then maybe share it soon. The Chiplet is having more tests done and I really really hope to have some good news. Either way, I will make something circular for us.
I know, you might say that I already made croissants so why am I making “almost” croissants. Well, these were pretty good for much less work.
I like that these croissants are easy to space out the work involved, doing a bit here and a bit there. And then you can bake them fresh for when you want them.
