I miss our community. How are you all doing? What's new in your lives?
I just discovered cottage cheese pancakes. I gained an obscene amount of weight over the past year, trying to bury my stress in cheesecake. I'm trying to work it off. We love pancakes in this house and my son begged for some for dinner. I searched for healthier alternatives and found these:
1 cup cottage cheese
1/3 cup flour (next time I'll use a little more, this didn't seem like quite enough)
1 tbls oil or melted butter
mix and fry over low-medium heat. The texture is a little different but served under syrup and fruit they pretty much do the trick. Full of protein.
I'm doing good... my practicum at the Ministry of Children and Family Development is going well. I was worried about doing child protection but I actually really like it. I'm pleasantly surprised by the amount of services offered to keep families together. Some of the families just need a bit of help (usually financial, sometimes respite care) to keep their kids. I'm halfway through now and I'm hoping to get a job but we'll see.
My husband is still working at home (yay!) so that's great My son is doing well, growing like a weed. On the weekend he found my six-year-old sister's pink t-shirt in our guest bedroom and put it on... and hasn't taken it off since, except for bathtime when I wrestle him out of it and slip it in the wash. Too funny.
