Friday Fun!

Hi!  It’s The Bug and I’m ba-ack and ready for some Friday Fun!  And after having my tonsils out, fun for me is eating solid (though very soft) food again…

And playing outside again…

And doing arts & crafts again…

And tackling Baby Brudder again…

Speaking of that kid, he is getting onto all sorts of trouble…

And my stuff…

Thinks he’s a big shot just ’cause he is 6 months old now…

Whatever!  Look at me when I was 6 months…

I could totally take him!

Anyways, Mommy asked me to remind you about the big GIVEAWAY to celebrate Miss Joan’s Birthday.  She is the nice lady from Chocolate, Chocolate and More.

OK, Mommy’s turn…

This week’s “Somethings” are dedicated to my mom!

Something I love and made this weekSoul Warming Butternut Squash Soup from me – perfect for The Bug after his surgery, and sooo yummy!  (Mom loves this too.)  (on my Yummy Eats Board)

Something I love and will probably never makeAlmond Joy Truffles from High Heels and Grills – because my mom loved Almond Joy, though truthfully, I probably would make these, except that undoubtedly while I am elbow-deep in melted chocolate, Baby Smiles would surely need to be fed or changed. (on my Candy & Sweet Bites Food Board)

Something I love and want to bake - Pumpkin Pie Butter Tarts from Michael Smith on Food Network Canada – combines two of my mom’s favorite desserts.  (on my Pumpkin Obsession Board)

Something I love and want to cook - Butternut Squash Cheddar Ale Soup from Frugal Foodie Mama – combined two of my mom’s favorite soups.  (on my Soup & Stew Inspiration Board)

Something I love and want someone to make for me –    55 Pancake Recipes compiled by Vintage Kitchen Notes – yup, someone can make me all 55 of them.  Mom likes pancakes too, but really this one is all about me.  (from my Breakfast Inspiration Board)

Something I love and want to put my own spin onButter Bourbon Ice Cream from Ninja Baking – I want to make a no-churn version of this for my Butter Pecan-loving mama.  Maybe even browned butter… (on my Ice Cream Obsession Board)

    So glad that The Bug is better and the pics of both babies are adorable!

    Something I just made this week and loved was Country Ranch Hummus from foxeslovelemons. I have friends coming over soon and had to make an appetizer. I saw Lori’s recipe this morning and decided to give it a try. Besides being over-the-top easy, it is incredibly delicious!

    BTW, I love your list of ‘somthings’.
