This past weekend my parents came up for a visit! They couldn’t stay away another day from their grandson
We ate 3 amazing dinners and had a great mix of sightseeing and chilling out at home
Mom played with Mazen in the mornings so I could go back to sleep for a bit, and I made her breakfast in return.
She also watched him while I went to the gym twice – such a treat!! And we watched the first few episodes of Downton Abbey (I’m ready to watch it again!) and made our next Real Health video on baby developments.
Grand Pepaw, who we simply called “P” all weekend, did lots of walking and enjoyed drinking Matt’s beer for lunch : )
Our first night’s dinner was a recipe from Better Homes & Gardens – herby fish with tomatoes, parsley and raisins
Served with pan-seared Brussels sprouts and Mediterranean Olive bread from Great Harvest
Yummy cotton carrots!
We went to the bakery for lunch on Saturday – hot soup and mini Cheddar Garlic sandwiches!
And then we walked to Sweethaus for buttercream. I had to show mom was it was all about!
Night two we had spaghetti – Mona Lisa Pasta with red sauce and pork sausage and salads on the side
Cupcakes for dessert!
The next day we paid a visit to Champion Brewing so they could taste the new beer flavors
Night three was baked brie with blueberry-lavender jam for appetizers
Followed by Organic Butcher Herbed Chicken with brown rice and canned green beans
We ended the weekend with brunch at Beer Run with Karen (who had been out of town)
I enjoyed salmon atop a biscuit with veggies and two eggs
We were sad to see them head back to North Carolina – until next time!
