Hope everyone had a great weekend. We had a cold front come through Friday night and temps went from in the 80’s to the 50’s. I tell you Texas weather is crazy. With the weather we’ve been having the bluebonnets have come out early this year. Usually they start to really show in early April, but this year they came out strong in the middle of March. My husbands side of the family has a farm up near the Brenham area so we made a day trip Saturday to get some pictures in the bluebonnets.
Aren’t we the cutest!

How can you resist this sweet little girl?

Sunday I felt inspired to make homemade syrup. I love flavored syrup, but I don’t love the price they charge. I also don’t want to buy a big jug of it just to taste the different flavors. I didn’t know you could make your own unless you had a tree to suck the maple out of, but a little research and here we are. It makes the right amount and it’s quick and easy to make. I can’t wait to try out other flavors. We ate it on some chocolate hazelnut pancakes from a mix I stocked up on when it was on clearance after Christmas. Yummy!
