St Patrick’s Day

Hope everyone had a great St. Patty’s Day!  We had a little holiday celebration here at Casa de Mitchell.  It all started with a holiday breakfast.  While Tim was at work I whipped up a batch of green waffles, topped it off with whip cream and lucky charms for my wee lad.  He was thrilled!  I love letting him dig in with his fork or with his hands.  Whatever he chooses, he never fails to get it all over his face and head.  Why isn’t whip cream sticky proof?  Someone needs to invent that…just sayin.





Since Tim is half Irish, I promised him an Irish feast.  Bailey’s cupcakes included (adults only).  For my very first time, I cooked corn beef and cabbage.  It was actually my first time tasting it too.  It’s definitely an acquired taste, but I don’t mind it once a year.  I cut up some potatoes, carrots, and onions and threw all of it into the crockpot along with the beef.  I love crockpot meals cause all you have to do is throw everything in and wait several hours.  And boom! Done!  It’s Guinness!  I mean genius!

Festive bow tie pasta for the young ones.  I knew they wouldn’t like the corn beef so this is what I planned for them with rainbow cupcakes for dessert.


The Irish cream cupcakes were to die for!  I skipped the last part of the recipe, which was adding MORE fudge sauce.  I wouldn’t mind it, but there wasn’t anytime.  Plus I figured the chocolate ganache filling was enough for now..mmm so good.  I’m still learning how to use a piping bag and decorative tips so excuse the poor frosting decor.

Bottoms Up! Irish Cream Hot Fudge Cupcakes



  Not my favorite rainbow cupcake recipe, but they passed.  I will definitely try a different one next time.


Our Weekend in Photos

This past weekend wasn’t too crazy.  We hung out at home and enjoyed some time reading  his books and playing with his favorite toys, the usual.   What started out as one car  slowly turned into a collection of 7.  He loves saying the word car (video coming soon)!  We catch him every now and then making race car sounds.  It’s actually quite cute to hear him go varoooooom!  Hmmm 2nd birthday party theme?

Where’s my Milk?

Woke up this morning, as usual, around 6:30am.  Today that’s actually at 7:30am with Spring forward.  Liam slept in a little later.  Great, this whole time change is really gonna throw him off his schedule.   Damn you Spring Forward!  Oh, who am I kidding!  With this little guy, it changes daily so not going to stress out about it too much, until….

I opened the fridge and noticed the gallon of milk was ALL GONE!!!  Someone is about to be crabby pants in 5.2 seconds if he doesn’t get his milk.  Damit! I forgot to buy a gallon yesterday evening like I said I was gonna do.  Instead Tim and I vegged out on the couch to watch American Idol and Vikings.  I know random right?

Anyways, back to this morning, I decided to act like I was not reaching in for the milk, but this 17 month old is pretty damn smart.  I closed the fridge and BOOM there he was, standing, looking at me straight in the eyes.  You can just see he was ready to chug his favorite drink in the world.  I mean Liam drinks his milk like there’s a shortage in California.  He knew exactly what was going on.  I quickly snatched him up and strapped him into the stroller.  Thank God we have a store next door to us!  Did he scream and cry the entire way? YES.  Did he kick off his bear slippers in the store? YES.  Did he throw his toys on the street? YES.  And did they have whole milk? Noooope!!  They ran out!! WTF?!!

Low fat milk it is!

We hurried home.  If anyone knows the sound of a baby crying nonstop… WOW!  I wanted to pull every strand of hair on my head, especially in the elevator up to our place on the 3rd floor.  The slowest elevator I’ve ever been in.    We finally got home and I quickly filled up his sippy cup.  In 5.2 seconds I had a happy little guy.  And when he’s happy, I’m happy.  So I did what any other awesome mother would do… I made the best peanut butter jelly sandwiches for Liam and myself.  And we ate on the couch watching his favorite toons.  Your welcome Liam.

The life of a mother…
