J loves pancake and blueberries so I decided to get frozen blueberries to make blueberry pancake. You figure that since he loved both by themselves, he'd like them combined. Nope. L, on the other hand, loved the blueberry pancake.
Oh, and I think I made a mistake with the pancake recipe. I must have accidentally omitted the milk so the batter was thicker and the pancake came out heartier. It certainly tasted good. Since I don't remember the mistake, I will have to test it out again.
I have about 2 C of frozen blueberries left. I've made banana blueberry smoothies, blueberry pancakes and blueberry muffins. I'm still wondering what I else I can do with the rest of the blueberries.
I also started learning to pack lunch bento style. I bought some smaller lock-lock containers and silicone cupcake holder. I try to make the food visually appealing by combining colorful fruits and separating the rice and other food items. Happily, L and J have wolfed them all down. I should take some pictures. They're plain but much better (look and taste) than last school term's lunch.
L is also reacting to the air in the classroom. He needs his inhalers twice daily. It is really unfortunate because he was doing so well during the last month of the summer holidays. As for J - his eczema is still bothering him. We've tried a few different homeopathic remedies but I've suspended any 'treatments' until the schedule and my energy level out. Right now things are too hectic. Although it's been about a month already, I've yet to find time for myself. Three hours is not enough.
By the way, I'm volunteering two days at school. J's classroom, L's library and L's mathlab. Social life is still nil but at least I have the chance to get out and talk to other human beings.
As I sit here and update my blog, I see the mess of toys around the room and the worst offending sight - a pile of unaltered new pants sitting on top of the dining table. I need to get to those soon. Boys don't want me making pants for them anymore so I bought a bunch of new ones but they need altering.
Phew ... gotta hit the kitchen now. Stir-fry pork with crimini mushroom and ong choy. Yum to the last one.
