Bring on the nesting!

At least I think that's what I'm doing. Does nesting usually start around a certain time? Regardless, I feel like doing eight million things at once. Today I did the following (check for links with recipes)

1) Took my screaming toddler to the crazy Dekalb Farmers Market. DFM is not the type of place you go to and then suddenly decide to leave because your kid can't get control of herself. You stick it out and take the good, bad, and the ugly. Fortunately, DFM is crowded and crazy as it is so I just walked around like nothing was wrong. My list was long, she knows the drill, and I had no intention of giving up. Her meltdown probably lasted 10 minutes but felt like an eternity. I may or may not have passed the free bread sample lady many times just to get some muffin goodness to hold her over...

2) Made homemade Slow Cooker Applesauce. I have made homemade applesauce before when Lila was first entering the world of solids. This way is about a million times easier and faster than the way I was doing it. Being that applesauce is Lila's recent absolute favorite, I'm hoping she approves. I was buying applesauce in a big jar at the grocery store as of late which makes this a fraction of the cost as well.

2) Made homemade granola. Unfortunately, this is not a website recipe. This is one I pulled out of a magazine a while ago, made once, and forgot about. It's SO GOOD. If you want the recipe comment and I will send it to you. This nesting thing has worn me out and typing it up at this very moment isn't happening.

3) Made homemade Honey Caramel Sauce. Are we noticing a theme? Plus, what do I need honey caramel sauce for? Absolutely nothing. I love the Pioneer Woman. I saw the picture of the sauce on the Tasty Kitchen part of her blog and had to make it. It says to dip fruit in it or put it on ice cream. OKAY....twist my arm.

4) Made homemade berry frozen yogurt. Probably the silliest item we registered for when getting married was a fancy Cuisinart ice cream maker. We assumed no one would buy it. We have used it as much as any other appliance we got. We are ice cream lovers...match made in heaven.

5) I half completed a sewing project!!! Yay for this one not being food for it not being a sewing project that will help to decorate my house. Regardless, I yet again waited to the last minute on this one so thank God for my crazy nesting day!

I think that about covers it. No, I did not ignore my kid all day. Once we got home from the DFM she was a complete joy AND she took a gigantic nap. Instead of napping with her I made fantastic use of my time. I have missed this person that actually gets things done...I hope she sticks around :-)
