it is a conspiracy...

I swear it is a conspiracy! I am heading for a crop weekend and 24 hours before hubby is due home from his trip he complains of a cold that he is coming down with. As soon as he arrives home, Keegan runs up, "Hi Daddy, I missed you"...hug and kiss ensue...then "sniff, sniff...which follows a wake-up at 5:30 am and a runny nose.

It is a conspiracy to keep me from leaving...however, I refuse to give into their attemps at keeping me home. They will just have to, as my sister so poetically puts it "suck it" till I get home.

So I will be leaving in a few short hours to their moans and runny noses...with a well stocked house of juice, soup and aloe tissues.

A week ago...

Last week was the last art class that Auntie Erin was able to attend with Keegan. Needless to say teaching class to day without her there was a little sad, but other wise went really well. The Play Clay was a success! (recipe to follow later)

So here are some pics from last week...

These sound yummy...

Found this recipe and it sure sounds yummy and simple. Mind you the simple part might become complicated in my search for chickpea flour. Hmm, my search begins...
Chickpea Crepes

2 cups warm water
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chickpea flour (check the international section of the supermarket)
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Put everything in the blender. Turn it on. Scrape down the sides once or twice, and let the batter rest about twenty minutes.

Pick the smallest non-stick frying pan you've got, and put it on medium heat. Tip a dab of olive oil onto a paper towel, and wipe inside the pan. Once the pan's hot, measure out a quarter cup of batter. Take the frying pan in your right hand, and take the cup of batter in your left. Pour the batter onto the pan, turning it as you do so the batter covers as much of the pan as possible. It's all kinds of fun to make those first silly-looking lopsided crepes. They'll taste just as good as the perfect ones, I promise. Cook until golden-brown on the bottom, then flip, and cook another minute or so. Repeat with the rest of the batter; this recipe makes about 12-15 crepes.

Children's Museum Visit

Today we headed off to Winnipeg for a few errands and a visit to the Children's Museum. The boys had a blast and most likely could have spent all day there as it was we were hard pressed to make them leave after 2 hours of go-go-go!

Having bought a membership, I plan on taking Keegan there more often, it is a great little place for him to explore and play. Mind you I wouldn't want to go on a busy day!

Keegan and Kian climbing the Beaver Dam!

Just being boys...

the best shot of the day...he loved the train.


Well, it seems in order to make blogger accept my google acct I was forced to delete my other one and the blog, which means I have lost my title and few other things. Humph! So much for being able to just switch from "old" blogger to "new" blogger. Oh well. At least I didn't lose my whole 60 posts...hehe.

With some more work, I'll get it back on track. I guess the one good thing that has come out of this change is that all my fun little widgets will now work as they are supposed to!
