Sour Lemons

Health is not valued until sickness comes. ~Thomas Fuller

It’s tough when life throws you a lemon.  So while I’m waiting for a miracle mine will turn into lemonade, I will have to take a little sabbatical from the site to help a loved one. Thank you all for understanding and I will hopefully be back soon, ready for a fun chat and good advice.

This week went by fast. A day off for Thanksgiving really helped that along. This weekend I’m heading to the Home Show in Vancouver. I’m super excited and I really hope to get inspired and energized to make some changes around my home. If the weather holds out for the weekend I just may spend some time outdoors and get a few photo shots of this gorgeous fall season or maybe I’ll have a back yard fire with friends. I already looking forward to a wonderful weekend are you?  I hope so. See you Monday. xo Pam

Coffee Break: Light On or Light Off?

What’s right and what’s wrong?  Start up this conversation in a group and it can become a huge controversy with many parents.  Here’s what I know:

Night lights are not necessary for toddlers, because nine times out of ten they don’t have night time anxiety. Around the age of two or three years old children start to develop the concept of fear and imagination. The number one fear is, who’s hiding under the bed (that one still gets me).  Some children do very well with sleeping in the dark and if you are that lucky parent then keep doing what you’re doing, but if you are not the lucky parent then let’s provide a little comfort with a soft light to reassure a restful night for all.  The moral of my topic is, you’re never too old for a night light. I think it’s a good idea to use a night-light in the hallways for safety reasons. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

Does your child use a night light and what are your thoughts on this?

Cheesy Eggs

Cheesy Eggs

Delicious for breakfast or for a snack. Here’s a recipe that just might inspired you to make eggs this weekend.

Ingredients: 1 Cup milk, a dozen eggs, 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, prosciutto (but you can use any deli meat if you like), 1 1/2 tsp mustard, 1 loaf of twelve grain bread cut into cubes or slices, chopped green onions, and salt + pepper.

Let’s get crackin. Grease your pan, place your first layer of bread, then add meat, cheese and onion. Continue this until you run out of the three ingredients above. Whisk the wet ingredients (eggs and milk) together and pour evenly over top of the bread. Cover with a lid or foil and cook at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown.  Devour!!

Link Love: Happy Thanksgiving

Happy ThanksgivingI’m looking forward to Thanksgiving this weekend. Everyone has been told what time to attend and what to contribute to the big turkey feast.  My contribution is veggies. I bet most of you are thinking, yuck, but I’m sure I can pull this off with a standing ovation. Dishes #1. Grilled Asparagus & Feta, #2. Maple Green Bean with Caramelized Apples and #3. Snap Pea Pancetta. Sounds pretty good, don’t you think? (I’ll post one of these recipes next week.) I am wishing you a happy Thanksgiving with your family and friends and I hope you have a wonderful time together.  xo Pam
