Just kickin’ it around here!
Mazen’s new booties in preparation for our farm wedding next weekend! I also ordered some denim items from Old Navy on sale – so cute! Hope they fit! Check out the red cords too ; )
Man is it nice to have Matt home in the mornings. I know it won’t last forever, but having breakfast made for me while I fed Maze was so nice!
Matt’s whipped banana oatmeal topped with Nature’s Plus granola and sunflower buttah
Half caf coffee on the side – I made all decaf when it’s just me, but Matt likes to mix it up just a bit.
Mornings are my happiest time. I can usually count on a nap in the carrier or wrap and get my post done, housework and dishes finished and a shower.
Somebody now likes bath time!! I made the water a bit warmer and put a warm washcloth on his stomach while I wash him and no crying at all! I think he might even like it.
During nap #2, I made lunch –
An AMAZING sandwich of smoked salmon, sharp white cheddar and capers on Cville Crunch. The
breast [you know what’s on my mind ] bread was the best part!
Apple slices with cinnamon on the side
Mixed with some trail mix
Lemonade was guzzled down. I need my water bottle strapped to my hand!
This afternoon we met Aunt Faith for a walk. 2-ish miles downtown and back. I’m excited for more walking dates in the future!
We have been ever-so-thankful for all the homemade meals our wonderful friends have dropped by, and that has made cooking a bit more special again!
We put together this tofu stir fry for a quick meal. Farmer’s market beans and garden peppers were sautéed in a wok with some safflower oil, soy sauce, brown sugar and garlic. Tofu was seared in more oil in another skillet until brown on all sides (be patient!) Matt made a reduction of more of the soy sauce + brown sugar mixture with a dash of apple cider vinegar in another small pot to pour on top. Served over leftover white rice for me and leftover whole wheat pasta for him!
Sriracha on top!
KK came over for a visit and magically got the baby to sleep in her arms, so she offered to stay and keep rocking him while we ate dinner and chatted. He loves his grandmother and her homemade blanket!
