The One With the Baby Trifecta… (Or, Ice Cream For Breakfast, Anyone?)

Today’s post is about babies… three ways: Babies, music, and food. My own personal Baby Trifecta. I know… you’re wondering how I’m going to tie these all together. Be patient. First the babies. My babies. There was nothing better. I get to do a lot of cool stuff now, and heaven only knows, no one wants to change diapers and make milk forever. But seriously, it was the best. Everyday magic. Found this picture of Cam the other day. Babies are yummy.


Which brings me to #2… the music. Yesterday Tandy came over. Tandy is beautiful, stylish in a Bohemian sort of way, and talented through and through. We had a great time yesterday recording this sweet little song that she wrote. I love how Tandy is committed to working until the music is just right. It took us some hours, but despite not feeling well (she was coughing and could barely sing by the time she left), we made it just perfect. Her lullaby made me think of rocking babies to sleep. Click on the mp3 player, dream of babies… and enjoy!




And #3. At this point, you are probably expecting baby food. Nope. You will love this recipe for Dutch Baby. It is an all-time favorite missionary breakfast from back in the days when we used to feed 12 missionaries every Tuesday morning. Here, though, I am serving it the way DK eats it…. with ice cream on top. Yes, he eats ice cream for breakfast. But I am telling you, this would make a fairly spectacular dessert for company. Here is what it looks like fresh from the oven. Which is how we eat it most of the time, with some syrup or fresh fruit...


But then we take it up a notch. Click on this one and view it big. I defy to look at it without trying to lick your screen. Baby food? As if.



P.S. Please leave a comment so I know you were here. I like to hear when you like my songs, and I’m sure Tandy would like a little love, too. If you hate the songs, remember what Thumper told Bambi: “If you can’t say somethin’ nice, don’t say nuthin’ at all.” Or you can just stop by and throw rotten fruit at the house or whatever. Or better yet, Tandy’s house.

Please please put up some more songs? My favorite is "My Life" but I love them all. "The Gate" is beautiful!. Can I buy a CD?

I never knew you could post a comment even if you didn't have a google account. Thank you for the recipes, the pix and the songs, but mostly for your great writing. I can't wait to read what you say next. :D
