It’s the long weekend! My husband came home early from work and little Joseph and Noah enjoyed cuddling and rough-housing with him before their mealtime chaos. Have you made any plans for the weekend? I have a few ideas for you!

Create a gorgeous brunch dish the entire family will love.
Peach Abracadabra is an easy dish with fresh, ripe peaches and a built-in magic trick! This recipe begins with a ramekin placed upside down in the center of a pie plate. Sliced peaches encircle the ramekin, and are then drizzled with a lovely mixture of brown sugar, butter, cinnamon and vanilla. A buttery cake dough covers the peaches, and then this unusual dish goes into the oven. Once cooled, the pie plate is flipped over to reveal tender peaches nestled into a crumbly biscuit-cake. And where is the creme brulee-like syrup? In the ramekin, warm and ready to be poured over each serving! (If the weather is nice, eat it outdoors with your morning cup of coffee.)

Talked your sweetie into cleaning out the garage this Spring?
Dig out the Halloween supplies, and let your kids dress up in their favorite costume. Use leftover Halloween make-up to do some Spring-themed face painting: red and black make-up can be easily transformed into a ladybug. Purples, blues and yellows can be used to create a lovely butterfly design. Take your little bugs and butterflies out to spot tiny buds on trees and talk about what will happen when they open.

What does your family do for fun on the weekend? I’d love  to hear from you!
