Poor baby didn’t have a good night : ( He doesn’t seem that sick – he acts like himself for the most part, but his poor nose was feeling the effects.
Sitting up like a big boy!!
There he is! He was actually MUCH better when we got up this morning (can you “get up” if you never really go to sleep??) and I was very thankful. My cold is much better too. Hope the worst is behind us.
The morning scene:
Matt made us oatmeal in bed before he left for work!
Pumpkin oats with sunflower butter (OH HOW I LOVE THEE!) and Autumn Spice (DITTO!) Plus half caf coffee.
The best way to relieve a stuffy nose? Lean over some steam.
I cooked some dried beans for tonight’s dinner after breakfast.
Then we unpacked M’s new clothes from our family. Cute stuff!! Funny hats!
Another way to unclog noses: brisk walks outside. Or, brisk strolls that involve naps.
We walked downtown to run some errands and stumbled upon this “Vote Obama Llama!”
Our walk’s halfway point was at Karen’s house where we said hello.
Then came home for lunch. Maze gave me juuuust enough happy time in his swing to make and eat lunch. Although it wasn’t that much time considering I made and ate this lunch in about 15 minutes.
Hummus (Cava brand red pepper) with white cheddar on Cville Crunch
And carrot, apple with sunflower butter. Can I just say I love the colors aqua and orange!?
This lunch looks small, but it was very nutrient and energy dense!
Later in the afternoon, I snacked on greek yogurt with pumpkin butter, blackberries and granola crunch garnish.
Dinner tonight was Lynsie’s Beans + Greens Soup, which I slightly adapted by adding bacon and tweaking the recipe to our convenience. I updated the recipe page to the one I made tonight.
Served with some toasted Cheddar Herb scuffin that Matt brought home and made into little crostini bites.
I had seconds on soup – loved how thick it was and all the greens!
Hoping to catch up on sleep STAT!
