I have gotten some cute cards lately in the mail, and since I was a busy beaver today I thought there is no time like the present to share them with you.
A super cute Easter card from my friend, fellow Demonstator and Canadian Debbie Sutton. She even had confetti inside the card, but I saw it before I dumped it all over the floor…ha!
Another cute pocket card from Karen Bader, she sends her class checks in them, love them!
An amazing card from my sweet friend Ellie Wilkins, I love all the details, and how she had the flower peaking in on the side.
A delicious birthday card from my Papercraft Planet "boss" Susanna Boyd, makes my teeth hurt, it's so sweet!
OMG! Look what Debbie Grayson brought me! A gorgeous card, and a beautiful chicken/rooster, since we could not decide, it is gorgeous and it has a special place in my glass front cabinets. I love it!
Thanks everyone for the sweet cards, I love getting the mail when I get goodies like this. Mwah! to all.
So tonight since it was Idol results show and since Jeff went fishing all day (he said he wanted to practice to get ready for Halibut fishing in Alaska) I wanted to fix a quick supper, and we have like 30 eggs in the fridge. I have not made a german pancake in a while so that is what I did. Unfortunately I didn't look at the recipe before hand and realize it takes milk and our growing boy with the hollow legs (where all the food goes – since he is a stick) drank all of it, so luckily I called Jeff and he was on the way home and right by the grocery store, so he stopped and grabbed some on the way home, as well as some flour and some fish batter since he caught a good sized cat fish. I wanted to take a picture but by the time I went out there, he has already gutted it and cut the poor things head off so you'll have to use your imagination.
Here's the pancake after it is cooked.
Here is the recipe if you want it.
1 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
6 eggs beaten
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Melt butter in a 9×13" pan in the oven until it sizzles. Meanwhile mix the other ingredients together. Stir remaining ingredients into pan after the butter sizzles. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Don't open the oven door to peek. The pancake will climb the side of the pan and settle slowly when removed. Garnish individual pieces with either fresh fruit, honey, confectioners sugar, or maple syrup. We just ate it with maple syrup.
So American Idol the results…look away if you have not seen the show.
I wonder if the sound system was off tonight cause you know how the Idols come out and they sing at the beginning? Well I think they were all off key. They sang Trains – Soul Sister and I do like that song, but not so much tonight, the Cold Play one, I didn't know.
So I predicted right last night, the bottom three were Jacob, Stefano and Haley, unfortunately Haley didn't have to sit there very long as Ryan quickly sent her back to being safe.
David Cook performed his new song, I always liked him. I do have a question though, what is up with guys with their hair and then they comb it so it sticks up in the center? Please will someone let me in on that whole thing?
Katie Perry also sang, I don't know her, except she has beautiful blue eyes, is married to the actor from Arthur and I think she helped Sesame Street's Elmo become a man. Does she always perform like that or was she doing Lady Gaga stuff, cause it was very odd.
So bottom two were Stefano and Jacob, and finally Stefano is going home, how many times was he bottom two and was saved, so finally he got it. I felt so sorry for James, as he was crying and they kept showing him on the camera, plus he ran over to the stage and hugged Stefano. They sure are one big happy family in that house, it must be hard when someone gets kicked off, especially the later it gets and the longer they hang out.
Well I am going to sign off for tonight, and get to bed a little bit earlier tonight.
Have an awesome Friday and thanks for stopping in!
What beautiful cards!
I am glad Hayley was saved…she is improving every time..and yes the sound seems off for a lot of the show tonight!!
So glad Stefano is gone and Jacob got another chance as he just had a bad week this week I think. Poor James was in pieces wasn't he?? They were roomies I think.
Well..50% of them will be in the bottom three next week!!! LOL
The hair thing..it's called a FauxHawk (like a kinda Mohawk)…all the young kids (and some older ones too)do it…

Re David Cooks hair – I think its a rug. He had very thin balding hair before. I thought he look good.

Thanks for the receipe, I need something quick for dinner on Good Friday before 7pm mass.
Say, by the way, do you happen to know or have a receipe for "Gruppa" my beloved uncle always talked about how his German mother & grandmother would make these homemade donuts they called Gruppa.
