Finally

I finally tried a vegan pancake recipe I had written down awhile back.
2 cups wholewheat flour; 1 tsp baking soda; 1 tsp baking powder; 2 cups almond milk; 2 TBS canola oil.  Stir until just blended then throw in extras.  
I mashed one banana for mine then served them with all-natural peanut butter, chopped pecans and a drizzle of honey.
 Zack had his with chocolate chips and powdered sugar.
 And I finally did something with these rocks that were picked up on walks years ago.
 I thought I would one day paint them, like the kids did with  these small rocks when they were little.
 Instead, I went the crochet route, using what I had on hand, making up a pattern as I went along.
My first crocheted stone makes me very happy.

Hope you are having a fabulous Friday!

Oh Tammy I loved the crochet on the rock. I am gonna do some. Now those pancakes are delish looking. Ether one I could take. Is your school out yet. Can't remember reading if it is or not. I just went back and got the answer. Enjoy your time off.

Dearest Tammy,

Your vegan pancakes look and sound delicious and above all; healthy! Guess instead of almond milk one could use soy milk.
Your crocheted rock-couture is super! That will look very special.
Love to you,

Mariette

Libbie said...

I sure never heard of crochetd stones but HOW CUTE! What a creative idea! They are the perfect shape for that!

I LOVE peanut butter with maple syrup on my pancakes :)

Beverly @ My Sew Sweet Studio said...

Your pancakes look so yummy and especially with all the various toppings to choose from. Those little crocheted butterflies are so cute. How did you ever think of crocheting around a rock? Very pretty. I like that it is a light and open crochet in contrast to the solid heavy rock.

Lots of deliciousness here - those pancakes sound delicious. I make mine with oatmeal.
How cute and useful is your rock cosy, perfectly decorative.
Enjoy the your creations.

podso said...

I make similar pancakes with oats. Your moon photos are beautiful. I didn't even realize the moon was full. No wonder we had so many babies delivered yesterday at work! I always enjoy seeing all your creative projects. I too am thinking of returning to cross stitch. I used to love it.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Tammy, your crochet/rock project came out beautifully!! Love that. And, those pancakes are making me need to get up and head to the kitchen!! LOL! blessings ~ tanna

The pancakes look delicious and I love the crocheted stones! Have a great weekend!

Kit said...

Your rocks are so lovely! What a great idea. I wish I could crochet and I would make some. We get these lovely black cobbles from the Oregon Coast and they would look lovely with white crochet. Have a great weekend! Kit

kimmie said...

it feels so good to "finally" get something done that's been on the list for a while - especially if the results are so pleasing :)

love your crocheted stone!

The pancake sounds yummy...and the rocks, what a great idea to crochet them.

The butterflies are beautiful. Is that a pattern you created?

Blessings always

besomom said...

Your crocheted rock is lovely! I am impressed you made up the pattern as you went along. I need a pattern to make anything.

I also think those painted rocks are adorable. I especially like the little smiley face one.

Nathalie Thompson said...

Hurray for ALL of your crocheted stones!!! (I perused your recent posts first and am working backwords) Looks like fun, making it up as you go along.

Those pancakes look amazing too! YUMmy!
