Monkey See; Monkey Do

I was just monkeying around the kitchen...

I had some dough leftover from baking dinner rolls and cinnamon buns (yeah - it was alot of dough!) and I had seen this idea from the Pioneer Woman previously.  Cinnamon, butter, sugar and a dash of sweetened condensed milk - yes please!!!  Ok, so maybe, just maybe, I accidentally on purpose put some dough aside just so I could indulge in this .... well, indulgence.

And what an indulgence - worse still, an easy indulgence as I already had the dough.  Caramelised cinnamon sugar with a bit of bread covered with sweetened condensed milk.  I don't think I really need to say more.



And, in honour of Father's Day, we had special "WE heart DADDY" pancakes... ok ok - I ran out of time, energy and ideas this year.  (Note to self - try harder next year!)

Don't mock the banana - at $12.99/kg this is a real treat.  Unfortunately Daddy was too slow and Little Miss M took it and ate it.  It might be Father's Day, but "you snooze you lose" still applies.


 And, Baby Mac was very patient throughout this whole photo taking session.  She tried to object - this was way too cheesy - but in the end she just sighed and put up with it.

What is this?

Ew!

Take it off... PLEASE.

Fine, just take the damn photo.  I hope none of my friends see this.
 
 I hope you have enjoyed your weekend and are all refreshed for the week ahead!!

  1. Oh wow, someone’s had fun in the kitchen! I love the letter pancakes…very sweet idea…I wonder if it was hard to make? The monkey muffins look yummy…I have seen the recipe before but got a bit sceptical about it…now that it has been tried maybe I’ll give it a go too. Have a nice week!

  3. oh, yum!! Pretty sure my monkey bread is one of the reasons my hubby proposed! (sadly, I haven't made it in years, so thanks for this post!)

  4. I followed your link to the Pioneer woman, from there to a recipe for Monkey bread - very similar to this and guess what - made it twice at the weekend! Needless to say my husband was very pleased. Isn't it strange that the first time always turns out better than the second attempt...at least in my experience :-)

Caramel Popcorn - devil's food, I'm sure.  I am addicted to this stuff.  Once in a while, I buy that awful stuff from the supermarket and binge on it.  Sadly (or thankfully  - I don't know!!), I seem to be the only one in the family to love this stuff.  I thought I would try to make some at home.  So... 

 I made a batch on Tuesday night - one jar full plus 4 and a 1/2  brown bags full.  I gave away one bag to a neighbour.  I gave the 1/2 bag to my husband for work.  And I "shared" (as in I think I ate the lion's share of it) one bag with some friends who came over on Wednesday.   I was surfing Pinterest last night.  And on Thursday morning, I wake up and this is what I'm left with...

After the photo shoot (I took about 3 photos!!)...

And that's it - no more after this jar is emptied!!
On another note, I had a go at creating "art".  Art, as in something to hang and display.  What do you think?  The inspiration cam…

Visions, Goals, Plans... Oh My

I'm a sucker.  And I've got an addictive personality.  And I rationalise and justify everything I do.  So, it's never a good idea for me to pick up a new hobby... aka addiction... unless it's truly good for me.

I picked up the capsule wardrobe thing... good.

I picked up the skincare/makeup thing... not so good ($$$).

I latched onto the no shampoo thing... good.

And now I'm onto the Kikki K thing... so NOT good.

I'm into it.  So so so into it.  My life can be soooo much better with the help of stationary and vision boards and stickers and pens and yep... workshops.

It's mid-year and I'm goal setting.  I've never been a believer in the New Year's Resolution movement, but mid-year goal setting... I'm all over that like a rash, baby.

I've "invested" in a planner so that I can live each day with purpose.



I've "invested" in a vision board so that I can keep motivated.



And I've attended a Goals Workshop so that I can…
