Don’t worry – I didn’t forget Mother’s Day. I was oh-so-dilligent, producing a homemade card and breakfast. I just had some…issues…securing appropriate photographs.
This is not one of the giant apple pancakes (à la Pancake House, but better!) I made last week. Those got devoured within minutes of their hitting the table, and it wasn’t until we were halfway through that I remembered my camera was in the other room. This is from a second batch, made today, and with camera close at hand. It’s criminal how good these are, and how easy they are to make, too. This may be my new special occasion recipe.
And it’s not Mother’s Day without a homemade card, is it?
I found the pattern in an issue of Cute Cross Stitch I bought last summer, and had pretty much hung onto the magazine specifically for this card collection. I modified it a bit – made the kitty’s nose black to look like mine, and left off the tail since she’s a bobtail – and mounted it on some pink cardstock I had on hand.
Happy May Long!
