What a busy weekend!! My first activity was Partridge watching!! lol Ok - Partridge waiting to be more specific. :) My bird feeders have been super busy over the last week. We are definately keeping the Grackle population very well fed. Most days, it's like a Hitchcock movie - watching them storm in and out - scaring all the desirabel birds away. I thought that Grackles were supposed to be territorial and that we'd only get stuck with about 20 - but nope!! Not my yard - we're well over 100 I'm sure! In the middle of all of this, though, Hubby has seen a few Partridge at the feeders. They're too big and too dumb to figure out what to do with them, though, and I imagine it's kinda like the seagulls from Finding Nemo with the "MINE-MINE-MINE" IQ. They flutter and bounce about with zombie intelligence and then fluster off in a flurry of feathers. Hubby promised to try and get me some pics so my fingers are crossed.
Pancakes - We have learned that we don't like Costco pancake mix - it's pretty gross!! But - we have a ton of it (as most costco items go) and have to use it up. So far this week, we've had Berry, strawberry, apple and orange pancakes and have discovered that with enough maple syrup and brown sugar - it's not half bad! lol I really do miss Aunt Jemima though. :(
Now for the Purple part of my weekend...I had a little bit of cake and frosting left over, so I was thrilled to make a smash cake for my friend Pam. She asked for a cupcake smash cake in purple but let me have creative freedom. Because it's for a photo-shoot, though, it had to be rainbow inside so rainbows they got!! :D I LOVE rainbow cake!!!
