Sunday Dinner

Had such a fun day today! Wes went into work for a few hours this morning and I got to sleep in about an hour! Bliss! Got up and read the Sunday paper and Tiffany showed up with Works Bagels for Breakfast. We visited for a bit and then she had to do some shopping. I popped a roast into the crockpot with some seasoning and went about my day. We met up with Beckie, Matt, Chris & Tiffany for lunch at Taco Loco. Because it's Christmas they had Tamales on the menu and boy were they ever good. Then we took a walk along Arroyo Grande creek. Snapped some cute pictures of Scott. He's such a cutey!


Check out these crazy chickens. Arroyo Grande is known for having chickens that parade around the "Old Town" section and sleep down by the creek. The rumor is that they escaped from the local meat market. Do you think these want to go back? The only question for me is why were they advertising Tri-Tip sandwiches with all these fine birds volunteering for the sandwiches?


Then we decided to run out to Avila Barn where they are beginning their 50% off sales. We took Christmas pictures of Mathew, Beckie & Scott....

and then shopped the sales. Here is what I picked out. These cute little ornaments started out as $3.95 and Wes said I could only get 10. Well, to tell you the truth, 10 would be about all that would fit my tiny tree! So I paid for 5 and got 5 for free.


We have ornaments on our little tree right now, old, no REALLY old Carl's Jr. felt Star ornaments. I might leave them on and add to them, not sure yet. 

When we came home, you should have smelled the house. Reminded me of when I was a kid. You'd be walking down the street you lived on and smell food cooking that smelled SO good you hoped it was your house! Then you walk in and find out it is! We had roast beef, vegetables, biscuits dripping with real butter and lemon bars for dessert. I just love old-fashioned Sunday dinners gathered with family.

Baby Shower Busy-ness

Ok, you probably thought I fell off the face of the earth right? Nope, there is just alot happening around here. The next event is Beckie's Baby Shower this Sunday. Decided to make my very first Diaper Cake and these are just a few of the pictures. The first thing I did was watch about 20 YouTube videos describing how to do it. Then I bought my supplies and put it together roughly first then more refined about a day later. This is a close up of the baby sock roses with mitten leaves. Yes, that video DOES exist! Next is a close up of wrist rattles and a little caterpiller radio that makes soothing sounds for baby. Background ribbon is from WalMart and the blanket set is from the Jungle Adventure Collection at K-mart. The topper for our "Jungle" themed cake is a Silver Back Ganz Gorilla . These little links slipped easily over the ribbon and added a little extra bling to the sides of the cake. Each layer consists of diapers along with extras like washcloths, burp pads and

Coffee T. Rice House

Isn't this a beautiful Victorian Style home? You can't see all of it because of the shrubbery and trailer park at the base of the house. It made me curious about the history of the house so I looked it up. Here is what I found. This is the historical information I found written  HERE . Coffee T. Rice House Oceano, California History and Description: Coffee T. Rice was a wealthy financier, with enterprises throughout the State, who migrated from Ohio to San Francisco. When a railroad was surveyed through this area he envisioned an industrial center here and acquired various properties close to the right of way. He introduced celery production to the area. Rice started construction on his home in 1885 using the same craftsmen that were working on the Pitkin House. The house originally had 20 rooms and was painted yellow. Surrounded by well-kept grounds with various trees and a sundial, the house was approached by an oval driveway and a stone-pillared entryway. The grounds also in

Norwegian Pancakes (Norska Pannekaken)

Every culture has its pancake and this is the Norwegian version, a very light, crepe-like pancake that goes with just about anything. These "pancakes" are light and eggy and go with both sweet and savory fillings. When my chickens start up laying eggs in the Spring, we LOVE to make these pancakes, freezing the excess for another day. Yes, they freeze and thaw perfectly! Most people have the simple ingredients on their shelves and in their refrigerators SO LET'S GO! Original Recipe Can Be Found on the Outside Oslo Website   Here . Norska Pannekaken 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 1 tablespoon sugar 1 teaspoon Scandinavian vanilla sugar* 3 eggs 1 1/2 cups whole milk 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for pan Mix all ingredients except butter in a medium-sized bowl using a whisk or fork until the batter is smooth and you have no lumps.
