Eats and Treats

Pancakes to spice up the School dress up party
Did I tell you that hardly anyone was dressed up?
So glad I was wearing my blue trousers and a white blouse
dressed up with two blue flower corsages,
lots of blue bracelets (these faux plastic ones),
a pair of silly earrings and a pony tail

Miss Vinciane's favorite candy
wrapped up in paper napkins and tied up with a candy rope
Her birthday treat at school, the teachers received the customary chalk candy

  2. I'm sad they didn't dress up, oh well. We will be having pancakes tonight for Fat Tuesday :)

    lovely quote.

  3. You are just so creative with everything you touch. :)

  4. Wat leuk Saskia - these pancakes on a stick are a great idea, love that! And love your outfit idea as well!

  5. Heden ik was in cafè een Cappuccino drinken en het zon opzoeken, YAY, first time!!!! Jouw duits is veel beter dan mijn hollands, but i'm learning - and it is great fun! veel liefs!

  6. Happy Tuesday Saskia Love :)
    Oh, I have never seen Pancakes look so inviting and charming!
    Sounds like it was a fantastic party!

  7. wat ziet dat er allemaal feestelijk uit Saskia. Had ik je al gefeliciteerd? Ik dacht het niet he. Meis alsnog van harte hoor. Wat een vrolijke traktatie.
    Een fijne avond.
    liefs Ester

  8. Oggi in Italia si festeggia la donna...auguroni anche a te cara, sei una donna meravigliosa!

  9. It does look yummy. Making me hungry. Hope you are having a great week.

  10. dear saskia, if you had fun, this is the most important thing. I am having those pancake cravings, even more since i have seen yours, so yummy looking. ^-^
    i have shipped your tote today, hope you do not mind, saturday was too crazy for me to go out. Hubby and i have been working hard doing the last bits of redoing our new bedroom. almost done, so happy.
    sending you tons of love,

  11. Lieve Saskia,

    Wat zien de pannenkoeken er zo op de satéprikkers mooi uit! Je hebt het ook prachtig aangekleed met de felgekleurde servetten en het rieten mandje. Ik hoop dat het een succes was op school?!

    Wat een geluk dat je met verkleden er niet helemaal vol voor bent gegaan. Je weet hoe het met Bridget Jones is afgelopen op het familie feestje........:-)!

    Lieve groet & een gezellige avond!

    Madelief xox

  12. Dit is toch zoveel leuker dan het standaard zakkie chips?! Ziet er lekker en gezellig uit en was dus vast een succes!

  13. maar jongens, dat ziet er lekker uit !

  14. Fabulous pancake idea for finger food at a party. Very sad that so many did not dress up and take advantage of a day of fun. I have not heard of chalk candy for teachers. Happy day to you...

  15. I just love the way your creative eye sees things like those pancakes on a skewer. Hope you are having a fantabulous day!

  16. Hello Saskia .. you do everything so beautifully .. xx

  17. I have never seen pancakes on a stick...what a good idea! I wanted to see a picture of you..sounds pretty! ;D

  18. Hi Saskia,
    I adore pancakes!
    Happy birthday to Vinciane. I hope that she'll be very happy.
    I don't know "ALLAF"!
    Have a great day.

  19. Erg lekker idee als traktatie! Erg mooi blog ook! Groetjes, Claire

  20. Ik krijg gelijk weer trek als ik die pannenkoeken zie....heerlijk....
    Lieve groetjes van Bianca

  21. My sweet SAskia, thank you my Dear but my readers are leaving me and I don't know why! I think that 20 Bloggers has lost my blog in the time from December until yet. One day I'm looking in the morning and than 4 hours later 3 readers are gone. Do you think that my blog is not intresting? Ok my fotos are normal, not so spezial as yours, and yes you must wait for a new post. But I dont know how to write every day. I'm a little bit sad about this.
    Thats a great idea Pancakes on a stick :)) and your paper napkins are so colourful!
    Have a sunny week
    and thank you

  22. ik ben geen zoetekauw, maar voor pannekoekjes val ik als een blok. ze bezorgen me altijd een heel nostalgisch gevoel van "mijn bomma bakt koekebakskes" (mijn oma bakt pannekoeken). na al die jaren haal ik zelf de geur ervan voor de geest. de jouwe zien er in elk geval heerlijk uit, en het idee is super! liefs, @nne

  23. Hi Saskia!
    How did I miss your last two posts!???
    I'm at work...and just noticed your posts!
    I hope I am able to leave a comment here... usually it is blocked!
    I love your pancake rolls... What a great idea for bite-sized lovelies from heaven!
    One of my favorite meals is pancakes and maple syrup! Bring on the coffee of course!
    Your springtime colors from the last few posts are keeping my heart cheerful as we received another big snowstorm and a small one for later in the week!
    So much moisture in the air always... hopefully it does not mean a moist summer!
    We had that last year and it was like a sauna!
    {good for the complexion though!
    I hope this comment "sticks." If not, I'll email it to myself and send it off when I get home! Happy Tuesday evening to you!
    *xoxo* xoxo*

Work is so stressful, but friends' lovely words are a healing balm to my sometimes weary mind. OH THOSE PANCAKES LOOK GREAT! And Ruben and I had SO MUCH FUN SASKIA! We just went out and laughed, held hands, hugged, ate, shopped, bought (teeeheeee) and came home to rest. Simple. Small things done rather than large things planned.....and I bid you a happy, long, love-filled life with your beloved and children, for you are a special, dear friend.
