Busy As A Bee

I've been spending most of my free time loving and caring for my mom and she so appreciates the help as she ages. She keeps asking what I would like for Mother's Day. You see, the roles are reversed now. We have fun plans for this summer, and mom is such a good sport about participating ;o)  

I have a lot of pinks and purples blooming right now!

At our camp, we have lovely wildflowers blooming. We took mom to dinner at our favorite inn for Mother's Day eve. Joe cooked for me and our sons on Mother's Day.

I spotted these darling stamped spoons on a Website. They would also be nice as garden markers.

For all you moms out there with a sweet tooth, put in your order for some Mother's Day
 Pancakes. The kids will love them too.

1 Box of Cake Mix

1 Can Frosting (or make your own)

Sprinkles (optional)

Prepare cake mix according to the directions on the box. Once cake is mixed add in 1 TB. of  sprinkles. Stir until combined.

Heat a skillet/griddle and coat with butter, margarine or non-stick spray.

Ladle the batter onto the heated griddle. Cook 2-3 minutes until bubbles start to form on top. Flip and cook an additional 2-3 mins.

Once all the pancakes are complete get ready to frost.

Remove cover and foil protector from your can of frosting and pop in the microwave to make pourable. Heat in 20 second intervals.

When the frosting is ready to pour, start stacking the pancakes, drizzling each layer with frosting and sprinkles. Cover the top pancake with frosting and finish with sprinkles.

Thank you for stopping by!
