Look what i made today :)

I went out for lunch to an all you can eat chinese buffet!! And i had more than i had planned on but i'm perfectly fine with that.

Got home and started to think about what i wanted on our front door for the spring! Which i hope is coming soon. So i gathered a few supplies and this is what i came up with:

Oh and i guess i was in the mood for new things. I decided to come up with a different pancake this morning. I made lemon poppyseed pancakes which were awesome.

I also ordered some new spices from Epicure and i got them this week. First was a grinder with sea salt, garlic and herbs which is absolutely awesome! I also ordered a beef and steak seasoning. But the best thing i ordered was a spice called poudre douce which is described as "A delicate 14th century French blend, sprinkle on fruit, baking, breakfast foods and desserts". It smells divine.

I won some of Annie's fruit snacks as well and i just have to say they are awesome!! Hope i can find some more here soon :) Thank's Danica.

Hope all my American friends have a great presidents day and all my Canadian friends have a great family day!!


  1. the lemon poppy seed pancakes look awesome... how did you make them?

  2. Congrats on winning those fruit snacks. They look good, as do your pancakes! Can you tell I´m hungry? :)
    Your heart/flower "creation" looks awesome! Where did you hang it?

  3. Look at you Ms. Creativity!!

    I haven't been to an all you can eat chinese buffet in about 5 years. Yikes.. I guess I'll have to face that fear eventually.

  4. I ADORE your door wreath ! It's making me think of ideas for my own door !

  5. I love the wreath! It's so pretty and springy. Those pancakes look really good too. I'm going to have to give those a try. Do you have a recipe?

    I had to work today... no Prez day off for me. But it was lovely and sunny here so I won't complain.

  8. Hi Suzi. That wreath is so beautiful! What a great idea.

    I love poppy seeds in anything. Did you have lemon juice poured over them?
