while you were sleeping

wake up mama it's 7am on saturday morning!! only 10 hours to fill until we go to the baseball game!!


there are a few ways to make this scenario better.

sanagans bacon.
el peto gluten free waffle/pancake mix. THE BEST THING IN THIS WORLD - know this.
fresh strawberries.
coffee beans (FULL COBRA) from the common.

here's what i wizarded up this morning...


then...lil theo and i mixed the mix as per instructions on the back but oh hey i added some pure vanilla extract and some frozen wild blueberrries while lil lucky eva slept in.

THEN i crisped up that bacon real good and crumbled the delicious morsels of salty fat on the blob of waffle batter before cooking.

butter waffles, slice up strawberries, add lots of maple syrup.


it's not all that bad getting up so early on a weekend...because now it is NAPTIME!

have a happy!

crazy crazy!

chop off hard bottoms and tippy tops.

place in boiling water for about 30mins until the leaves start coming off and are tender at the bottom.

melt some butter with garlic.

peel away the magical leaves, dip in butter, sip water and your mouth will magically be filled with sweetness!?! CRAZY.

AND if you leave the water overnight that you boiled the artichokes in (not recommending this - I am just lazy and left it out) the water will turn into the most vibrant green you have ever seen!

what an exciting and intriguing little ugly plant/vegetable thing!
