Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

let it be sunday.
sundays = pancakes (and the return of mr. handsome)

single parent weekend continues...

while mr handsome takes in fresh mountain air, stunning scenic views, and enjoys his much deserved golf weekend away with the boys, the kids and i are missing him terribly having pancakes.  
single parenting isn't so bad, when served with a side of pancakes.

so far we've made the most of the weekend. 

grocery shopping - check
new fall coats - check
amazing take out for dinner - check
fall fair @ our neighbourhood church - check

and that was just saturday.

today is a new day, sunday.  let it be sunday.  

following an early morning 6 km walk where we soaked in one of the last remaining late summer sunrises the kids and i came home and indulged in some creamy, lemony, oh-so-delicious, pancakes.

the only thing that could possibly make this day any better is my late lunch date with the lovely JA and MD, NFL season, and of course the return of mr handsome (with presents in hand i'm sure)

cheers.  xo.
