Out like a lamb, dammit!
Last week, March teased us with a bit of Spring, but now we are back to our regularly scheduled snow, ice, and cold. Blech.
The boys and I used the reprieve as an opportunity to head south to Ann Arbor. We thought that we’d hit the AA farmers’ market and do some shopping and walking-around.
Coming from Flint, we had high hopes for the farmers’ market. Here, we can do almost all of our grocery shopping at the market during most of the year, with beautiful produce, amazing meat, and lovely spices, among other things, on offer. AA’s market was a Disappointment. It is a weak yuppie hobby market! Maybe it is better in the spring and summer, but right now, it is really lame. So, needless to say, we were forced (FORCED!) to do our grocery shopping at Whole Foods instead. Anyway, for all you Flint haters, I’ll have you know, our farmers’ market ROCKS.
The rest of our day was fun, though. We had an amazing lunch at Zingerman’s, which really should be on everyone’s Michigan bucket list. The sandwiches and desserts are amazing. If you can’t make it up here, you can also order their stuff online – you won’t be disappointed.
Leo is getting on well. He still isn’t crawling, but he is learning new things every day. On the good side, he’s sleeping through the night now. One would think that that would be great for me, but I have been trained by that tiny tyrant to wake up twice a night, and, being such a good student, I do so. ARGH. On the bad side, he has also learned that he can make us do what he wants by crying. Clever little dictator.
I’ll be posting two recipes that I’ve made recently for white cake and chocolate cupcakes. The white cake turned out ok, but the cupcakes were a major fail. I think I’ll need to try both again.
