Cinnamon Apple Pancakes

It’s no secret I really like breakfast for dinner.
French toast is my first choice, almost always, but my kids really love pancakes.
I love to switch it up so they aren’t plain. This recipe sounds simple yet tasty.
I would top it with slices of apples or maybe get really creative and add apple pie filling.

11 Random things about me:

  1. I love butterflies. I think they’re beautiful and unique.
  2. I have two tattoos, a nursing pinup mom on my left shoulder blade, and three butterflies on my right calf, each in a different colour which represents the birthstone of a person; my grandfather, my grandmother & my mother. (Sort of like this, but with three butterflies instead of two)
  3. I was raised by my grandparents.
  4. I lived in the city but we spent all the time we could in the country. I’m homesick for it sometimes.

So, what is it? 

Root cover up is a temporary coverup spray to help cover up roots or grey hair between colouring.  It comes in six different colours and takes seconds to start working.  It is temporary and washes off in one washing.   I choose the dark brown cover up and found it really matched my hair well.

Price: Retail is about $12 (CAD) at walmart. $15 on Amazon.ca ($10 US on amazon.com

Alberta Strong

This week has been a hard one for Canadians. We watched, horrified and shocked as a town in Alberta literally burned to the ground while over 80,000 people were evacuated from their homes, many left with whatever was on their backs not knowing if they’ll ever see home again.

 

I can’t even imagine what that would feel like. Every image brings tears to my eyes.  But out of the ashes is something amazing. Seeing Canada come together to help those affected swells my heart with pride and restores my faith in humanity. That’s the thing about tragedies, you see the humanity and compassion in people. People with next to nothing out there trying to find ways to help.  It’s really beautiful.
This story of the refugees getting together what little they could because they know, possibly more than most of us, how it feels to literally be torn away and lose everything in a moment is a real testament to compassion.

This week has been hard for Canada, but it’s been filled with compassion and humanity. This week I’m proud to call Canada home.
