Did anyone get to soak in some sunshine this weekend? We sure did! Actually we were very happy that it was not so very hot since we do not have any A/C. I know, right? Crazy!
My mother-in-law was in town so Julianne had a lot of playtime with her grandmother which I will miss. Julianne started crawling last week so nothing is safe anymore!
Julianne also loves pointing. People seem to love it. Hahaha. I think she is saying, "I'm number ONE!"
We try to get a lot of outside time especially on the weekends so something new that she really likes is some swing time.
I have so much fun with this baby! She loves the outdoors and the sunshine. Who wouldn't?
Something I really enjoyed recently were these Mini Strawberry Buckwheat Cakes. Oh yes, they look huge but they really are mini. These are quick, healthy and delicious. The beauty of this recipe is that they can be consumed for breakfast or for dessert. :-)
The cream could be a whipped cream but I decided to make it a sauce. I blended some fresh strawberries with canned coconut milk and added a bit of agave syrup.
The sliced strawberries are fresh and sweet so I did not hull them at all. I sprinkled some sliced almonds and called it a dish. Yum!
