disappearing act

For my next trick, I will successfully eat a happy stack of pancakes while the kids are napping with no guilt or remorse that I could have accomplished something much greater in this amount of time or ate something much healthier... because what's the fun in that? ;)

You may have recognized these photos in my book. Thoughts today are what I was thinking over a year ago when I took these photos just for fun.

If you are local in Utah County there is a workshop tonight at Dear Lizzie by the fabulous Amy!!

That is the prettiest blue plate I've EVER seen! The perfect shade. If the pancakes were topped with ice cream they'd look much yummier (that's how I like to eat mine)!

Kirsten said...

Ruth said...

Love it! Who wants to spend nap time doing the ironing or other chores?!

Nancy W said...

I loved that in your book and now here. You photograph so many things that I would never think to photograph and love it all! What a great eye you have! *hugs from Texas

Maggie said...

What a wonderful series of photographs! Although, how did you manage to get so many before the pancakes were gone? I'm usually done in 2 bites...3 max...;)

Susan said...

Love your post! There are times when I feel I need to give myself permission to do something JUST FOR FUN! I could really go for a stack of pancakes!
Blessings!

Thanks again for having this blog. I enjoy it. I opened my May/June 2010 CK Issue...and...disappointed again. I know that there are alot of other talented women out there too, but I like your fun & fresh style. (pouting and on the brink of tantrum) I'm sorry for complaining, but What is wrong with CK!? Where are you? Will that article you talked about be featured next issue? I'll just have to be patient, huh? Done venting. It still stinks, though. Have a Great Day! and, thanks for the fun inspiration. :)

Oh, I love the way you celebrate the simple joys of life!
I was in the mood for pancakes...Casey and I had them for breakfast AND dinner yesterday and again for breakfast today. Here's a great recipe:

1/3 oats (buzzed in the blender into flou)r
1/3 eggs,
1/3 cottage cheese
a dash of salt and a bit of baking soda IF you want it.

These are yummy! And high protein so you don't get the carb loading crash afterwards. Even my picky son loved them. 4 eggs makes about a cup, so then you need a cup of cottage cheese and a cup of oats.

That will easily feed 3 hungry adults.
Enjoy!

I loved these pics in the book. By the way I've dug out old love notes from my husband and I'm using them in a page in honor of our 20 year wedding anniversary in May. (another idea from your fab book) I LOVE all your ideas and I love your book!!!

Bonnie said...

Liz!
At CKC Manchester. Looked for your new book, which was advertised here-
the box never arrived! I will get it from Amazon, but that was the talk of the show- no "dear lizzie books, my friend drove in from out of state to get that and she was disappointed too-you are a HIT!! (thought you'd like to know)....xoxo
