Little Pumpkin Doodle Update

Hope you’re ready for the weekend, I know I am! I thought I would update this posting since it’s been awhile. Here are some updates on Little Pumpkin Doodle’s favorite things as she grows.

WHAT SHE’S LEARNING: French and Gymnastics

FAVORITE SONGS:B52’s Love Shack, Who let the Dogs, Le Petite Train and Heads UP, by Steve Vai

BOOKS: All things Fancy Nancy, Pirates of the Sea and Dog, by Matthew Van Fleet

SHOWS: Secret Agent Oso and Jungle Junction

FUNNY QUIRKS. She still names all her dresses, and her all time fave is Laura Ashley (she wears it all the time). Her new funny quirk is stopping and doing this dance where she shakes her hands and drops to the ground, for some reason she thinks it’s hilarious.

FAVORITE PAST TIME: Ballet and reading her books.

Thank you for your readership:)

Stay tuned for more to come.

We all scream for easy homemade organic ice cream!

Happy Wednesday! It has been hot and humid the last couple of weeks in southern California. So to stay cool, I’ve been making meals that require little to no heat and we’ve been using our Frogg Toggs chilly pads towels.

I don’t know about you, but after dinner I like dessert, so when I found this recipe from SparkPeople I had to try it. We have a fancy ice cream maker so Little Pumpkin Doodle thought it was strange when I told her that we were making ice cream in a blender.  I made some changes to the recipe, but it’s essentially the same and tastes more like soft serve ice cream.

Don’t forget to stay tuned for Mommy’s Organics 2.0. We’re revamping the site and you’ll soon have a chance to win some great giveaways!

Mommy’s Organics “Endangered Species” Applesauce Muffins

 Hope you had a nice weekend! We have been busy the last couple of weeks.  Little Pumpkin Doodle was hit by accident in the eye at day care.  She’s doing fine now;  I was worried she’d have a scar, but I’m happy to say that I think she’ll end up scar free. Then two weekends ago we were is L.A. to visit Hubby’s brother that was visiting from the Big Apple.

We watched the olympics off and on this past weekend. We let Little Pumpkin Doodle watch the opening ceremony, but she lost interest very quickly, as did I. What did you think of the opening ceremony?  However, I thought the part with Daniel Craig/James Bond taking the Queen to the Olympic stadium was hilarious! [Read more…]

I had hand sanitizer everywhere and was constantly wiping things down with vinegar and water. Below are a few easy solutions to keeping things green while cleaning the kitchen. [Read more…]

Refreshing Cold Summer Soup Recipe

Many years ago I had the opportunity to spend time in the Canary Islands on the island of Las Palmas. While I was there I was fortunate enough to learn to cook some authentic Spanish cuisine, and it’s also where I had my first Mojito.
