We’re coming off of an exciting weekend! Isla’s basketball team played their first ever tournament- 2 games on Saturday and a championship game on Sunday. They played their little hearts out and brought home the win!
We also had our school auction on Saturday night. I literally took ONE picture the entire night… in the Uber on the way there.
But we had so much fun! Too much. I finally climbed into bed at 3:45am. Pretty sure I haven’t been out that late since college…? Luckily my parents took the kids to the lake after Isla’s games Saturday, so we were able to have a super lazy Sunday morning/afternoon.
Honestly, the most exciting thing I’ve cooked lately is this Dutch baby pancake:
I got the recipe from @triedandtruemoms on Instagram. The kids were out of school on Friday so we had time for a more “involved” breakfast. It’s super easy to make:
1. Put 4 Tbs butter in a cast iron skillet.
2. Put the skillet in the oven and preheat to 425 degrees.
3. While the oven is preheating, add the following ingredients to your blender: 6 eggs, 1 cup flour, 1 cup milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla, pinch of salt. Blend until well combined.
4. Once the oven is heated (the butter should be all melted at this point), pour the blended batter into the hot skillet. Place the skillet back into the oven for about 17-20 minutes.
Slice into wedges and serve with maple syrup, whipped cream & berries, or (my fave) lemon juice and powdered sugar:
Isla and I both loved it, Jack said he thought it tasted too much like almond milk- which is the only milk we had on hand. Can’t win ‘em all.
Books! Our March book club is tomorrow, and this month we read The Giver of Stars. I loved it! Honestly I’ve had a lucky streak of good books lately- before that I read American Predator, which was TERRIFYING but fascinating. Give it a look if you’re into true crime. I first heard about this case on a Crime Junkie podcast episode, and it is so crazy that this serial killer was not all over the news. I just started A Woman Is No Man, and I can’t put it down. It was a Book of the Month pick from last year and for some reason I never got around to reading it. It’s about 3 generations of Palestinian women who end up living in Brooklyn, and their lives, arranged marriages, and aspirations.
I had a little visitor at 3am (I-S-L-A) who proceeded to climb in and kick me all night long- so turning in early tonight!
