Week in Review & Pretty Pintastic Party #148

PPP #148

Happy St. Patrick’s Day and TGIF! We’re back with another weekly Pretty Pintastic Party, but first let’s sneak a peek of the week – in the rearview mirror of This Scattered Life.

Hope everyone had a most excellent week. Nothing really went according to plan over here at This Scattered Life. The house is a bit of a wreck, I got a chemical burn in my “good eye”, nothing on the menu was cooked, and we made an emergency trip to the animal hospital.

This precious pooch gave us a scare when he seemed to have lost all function on one side of his body and could not even sit or stand. Before we were halfway to the vet, he seemed to have miraculously self-healed and they could find nothing wrong. Apparently he just needed a $160 car ride – followed by french fries at our favorite spot for fish & chips.

I was more scattered than usual in the kitchen. Using up the overripe bananas was on the agenda, but somehow I ended up making festive Shamrock Meringue Cookies instead. It’s my standard meringue cookie recipe with a tablespoon Crème de menthe replacing the vanilla. (I ate so many that they don’t really sound good right now). And of course I quadrupled the recipe so I had the right number of egg yolks for Crème Brûlée.
