Common wisdom say that you never, ever give your wife an appliance for her birthday, Christmas or anniversary. I’m lucky to have a hubby who doesn’t listen to convention, ‘cuz he gave me this spectacularly awesome DEATH STAR WAFFLE MAKER. And I want to warn you that it is so majestically incredible, I will only use all caps when referring to it.
So since today is Waffle Day in Sweden, what better way than to celebrate with DEATH STAR WAFFLES!!!!!
All I need are these 2 books.
Well those, and a relaxing family Christmas with lots of hugs and laughter.
And the bracelet my daughter hinted at making.
And for my dad to feel better.
And world peace…
And this lamp…
…and this thermos… (I do so love Steve Martin. If you have not seen it, ask for The Jerk for Christmas!)
They sure did not look pretty, but what can be more fun than making Star Wars pancakes with Bantha milk?
The kids had a snow day not too long ago. As a working parent it is both a treat to get to stay home with the kids on a weekday (sleep in, yeay!!), and a scramble to juggle working from home with them around. This time around, fun won out. Upon the kids insistence, we made pancakes. But not just any pancakes – we made Bantha milk pancakes. We have tried to use the Star Wars shapes before, and it didn’t work. And I have to admit, it didn’t go well this time either. They didn’t turn out very Star Wars-shaped. The color was more greenish than blue. And trying to pry a Millennium Falcon out of its mold, I sorta burnt the others. But, you know what? They were made with love and lots of laughter and tasted GREAT, so I still call it a success!
