I love cream puffs very matcha...
That is the worst joke known to man, but it is 10:15 PM after a very long day!
Today's normal blog is brought to you by the letter 'M' for 'matcha.' You know that green powder stuff that they use in green tea lattes and boba teas and, well lot of things? The color, the taste, the versatility, it may be the best thing in the world.
You know what you pair it with? Cream puffs, wanna know why? Because it tastes delicious. Ask the 4 people that ate the 12 that I made in one day.
But first, let me tell you about my day. Because, I am a mother and only have a hand full of people to talk to about this stuff!
Braedon woke up at 2 and cried until 3, after Gareth and I were already exhausted. Then he woke up at 6:30. Least to say, it has been a very long day.
We went to brunch with some friends, who recently announced they were pregnant! I shamelessly promoted the Parenthoods app, because that's just who I am. Braedon ate 1/2 of my eggs and calamari. He really is starting to scarf down whatever he can get his hands on!
We met with the couple that I donate milk to after that. The mother bought Braedon the cutest outfit, I am so excited for him to wear it! It's his first pair of dungarees!
Leonardo DiCaprio finally won an Oscar tonight! That's exciting!
Braedon took over an hour to put down! He is just so grumpy today!
And I have yet to actually do my grocery list for the week, which is very abnormal for me. I hate being behind.
Next line of work- Day 28/30 of my blogging challenge. What is in my freezer? Breast milk. That's pretty much it. Seriously. I have a few frozen peas and carrots, but mostly, just breast milk.
And now the moment that you have all been waiting for! Matcha cream puffs dipped in chocolate!
