Etsy Treasury

I am in an Etsy Treasury! Thanks Cowlick Cutie!
Here is Noelle sporting one of Cowlick Cutie's adorable bows.

For those who are not familiar with Etsy, Treasury is a member-curated group of favorites lists.

I was also mentioned because of the Treasury in Turtlemommy's Blog! Thanks again to Kristel for the lovely photo of her daughter wearing the flapper beanie.

My little trooper

Noelle has been sick for the last week or so and getting her to sleep has been a horrifying experience. It was like dealing with a newborn again. But today is a sunny day, she is feeling better, and things in general are looking up, up, up.

Here's the little trooper in my latest creation "reading" her book. Cheers!

April is the cruellest month...

Yeah, that rule that you should nap while your kid naps is just silliness.

The reason why she conked out is we took a walk because the sun was nice and bright. I go into the dollar store and find my favorite cotton yarn for a lovely discounted price (yee-haw) and when we come out it's SNOWING.

Dear God, in case you forgot, it's April.
Love, Hannah

haha. Of course, as soon as we hit our doorstep it was clear and sunny. Craziness.

Fish Patties

2 pollock filets
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbls. toasted sesame seeds
2 scallions, chopped
2 tbls. panko
1 egg
sesame oil
vegetable oil
salt and pepper

Chop up fish and then mash with back of knife until it is workable. Add rest of ingredients to the fish. Mix with a spoon to prevent the fish from getting too mushy. Heat mixture of sesame and veg. oil. (half and half). Spoon out enough mixture to create 2 inch patties. Fry on medium heat, flattening with spatula to help cook evenly.
DO NOT TURN until each side is DONE, as they are very delicate and will break apart. Enjoy!

Headbands and Headaches

So my new thing for the shop is headbands...

I put headaches because I recently rediscovered ginger candy and I have been eating way too much of it, and all that chewing gives me a headache.
