I'm getting ready for Game 2 right now, really hoping we can take this one as well and then bring it home to win out the Series!
It was nice to have a Sunday that we were able to just hang out without a purpose/plan so to speak of. And what a beautiful day it was! If the weather wants to stay *just like this* for the next six weeks at least, I would be thrilled ;-)
We had a great "Build Your Own Waffle" breakfast that started the morning off right. Then the kiddos and I headed to run some errands while Grant mowed the lawn. First it was a trip to Meijer to let them pick out some Lions gears. I figure if we're going to say we support the team (Noah stated numerous times over breakfast this morning that he wants the Lions to go to the Super Bowl. I told him his Mama would like the Lions to win a play-off game. Baby steps.) we should show our colors. So bring on the Hawaiian blue!
Then it was to Doc Sweets to see if we could find the chocolate covered insects for tomorrow. Success! And a few other treats of course :)
Lunch, watching the Lions win, mandatory family nap time and then a walk to gather leaves for Noah to take to school tomorrow before heading back here for Noah putting on a puppet show and then dinner. Laid back, relaxed, beautiful Sunday.
Which leads us to...
Happy National Yorkshire Pudding Day! I decided to go full out authentic on this one and make a roast and use the drippings to make real Yorkshire pudding. I have no idea why it's called a pudding, but according to wikipedia: "Yorkshire pudding is cooked by pouring a batter made from milk (or water), flour and eggs into preheated, oiled, baking pans, ramekins or muffin tins (in the case of miniature puddings). A basic formula uses 1/3 cup flour and 1/3 cup liquid per egg." So there you go! I don't know that I'll be rushing right out to make them again but everyone here enjoyed them.
Back to school and the usual in the morning. Chocolate covered insects and Dessert tomorrow - should be an adventure. Until then...
