Lately: Lion–> Lamb

March 30, 2013

March is supposed to come in like a lion and out like a lamb, right? That’s exactly what has happened!

We got a surprise 4-5” of snow on Monday


And by Friday we were outside again!



Eats from the week included toast with smashed banana and fruit. I made the toast with Cville Crunch bread plus a drizzle of Wild Friends cocoa coconut peanut butter.


My new mug was a spring gift from Matt! He found it at my favorite gift shop in town, Oh Susannah.


Another morning I had a bowl of fruit with yogurt and granola. I’m into breakfasts that don’t require dish washing these days : )


This is our latest granola from Great Harvest – Lemon Blueberry Buckwheat!! It’s fabulous (and Matt is going to have it on the website soon).


Here was the same breakfast another day – different bowl!


Spring thaw = smoothies. This was 1 cup of milk, 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, 1 cup frozen berries and a banana. And the last of the Irish Soda Bread – sniff sniff.


Favorite breakfast of the week: hot oats in an almond butter jar! I ended up falling in love with this 365 almond butter (once I added 1/4 tsp of salt to the mix).


Whipped banana swirled with AB


For lunch I made a batch of hard-boiled eggs that I’ve been working through. This salad was topped with egg, herbed turkey and PB+J toast. I actually found a YOLKLESS egg that’s also on here – have you ever heard of that!?


This was a tasty combo – a Hot Cross Bun turned into French toast.


I soaked it in egg and then pan-seared it (the sugary top burned in a delicious way). I stuffed it with the remaining egg (scrambled) and some drippy almond butter. Sandwich of the week!


Served with a salad – greens, peppers, carrots, goat cheese, marmalade dressing


Matt and I had a dubbel tasting in anticipation of a top 10 beer post I’m working on. We decided to omit the dubbel category altogether though and voted in Belgian Strong Darks instead!


How is it that I only have ONE dinner to show you!? First because as of Thursday we have my parents here so that’s another post. And second because we had this dinner 2 nights in a row!

A beef stew that we made in the crockpot. Recipe coming!


Another dinner is coming in a post next week – hint it involves PEAS!

Mazen enjoyed his first taste of green beans this week. He ate them all, but I could tell he didn’t like them as much as his other new foods.

I LOVE your lately posts!! So much fun to read. Also, I cannot wait to get my hands on your GH Lemon Blueberry Buckwheat granola. I am obsessed with all things lemon, so I will be in lemon heaven. 😉 Your hot cross buns French toast sandwich looks and sounds divine. I hope you, Matt, & Maze enjoy your first Easter weekend together!


2 Karen March 30, 2013 at 8:29 am

I fully agree with Mazen – the only veggie I detest (and have since a wee baby) is peas..ick!

Love the name Oh Susanna for a boutique in Charlottesville…so perfectly quaint!

GH Blueberry-lemon buckwheat granola and WF 365 plain Almond Butter – YUM!!

Have a happy holiday weekend, Kath!


3 Lis March 30, 2013 at 8:29 am

if that’s a vintage spoon you are using to feed Mazen, be careful it doesn’t contain lead…a lot of cute vintage/antique stuff isn’t necessarily safe for babies :(


4 Lucy March 30, 2013 at 9:02 am

Lovely post!


5 Nina @ Too Hottie For That Body March 30, 2013 at 9:06 am

I keep forgetting to try your marmalade dressing it sounds so yummy! And where did you get Mazen’s high chair? I need shoulder straps for my little Houdini who is always plotting her great escape.


6 KathEats March 30, 2013 at 9:54 am

It’s the Oxo Tot Sprout

It’s funny that someone asked this because I was just googling your blog for what high chair you have when I came to this post, but conveniently, I actually had that same high chair priced out on another website haha. It looks like an awesome high chair!!


8 Jane @ Not Plain So Jane March 30, 2013 at 10:10 am

Lemon Blueberry Granola sounds perfect for spring! Sounds delicious!


9 Leslie March 30, 2013 at 10:56 am

Oh Susannah is the cutest store! I always want everything I see :o) Just picked up my honey bunny loaf from GH; looking forward to tomorrow’s Easter bread! Have a great weekend!


10 KathEats March 30, 2013 at 11:35 am

I want everything too!! ($$$) Yay for Honey Bunnies!


11 Anna @ On Anna's Plate March 30, 2013 at 11:08 am

This has been the craziest spring, weather-wise!

Moving into solid foods is so much fun– messy, but fun! 😉


12 Elise @ Expeditions of Elise March 30, 2013 at 11:48 am

I just got two jars of Wild Friends nut butter for my birthday…holy COW they are good!


13 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More March 30, 2013 at 11:49 am

That new mug is SO cute and that bowl too! Such fun spring-y dishes. :)


14 Caitlin March 30, 2013 at 11:50 am

Just left Grest Harvest with some sandwiches and Dakota bread in hand! It was funny to recognize both Matt and Karen… Both were super friendly to all customers! Tell Matt we enjoyed his singing 😉


15 KathEats March 30, 2013 at 12:16 pm

Haha fun!!


16 Sara @ fitcupcaker March 30, 2013 at 12:47 pm

YUm that french toast sandwich looks divine!!


17 Tiffany March 30, 2013 at 12:54 pm

Kath, I love your pictures. All are so beautiful and truly put a smile on my face. Mazen is an adorable baby, love the pictures of him too. Hope you have a great Saturday and a wonderful easter Sunday.


18 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats March 30, 2013 at 1:39 pm

oh my gosh, that a serious weather turn around! I wish ours would get warmer here in Chicago! And that hot cross bun french toast sounds delicious!


19 [email protected] March 30, 2013 at 2:38 pm

The hot cross sambo looks mighty! Which almond butter is it? Looks amazingly drippy! Never came across a yolkless egg but they’re known as wind or dwarf egg and is usually the first egg laid…they’re eggs that can’t hatch!


20 KathEats March 30, 2013 at 3:55 pm

Whole foods 365


21 Sarah @ An Apple A Day March 30, 2013 at 3:44 pm

This is so beautiful. Everything looks so delicious.


22 ds March 30, 2013 at 4:53 pm

Hi Kath! I’m 6 weeks pregnant and wondering about your unisom/b-6 cocktail you took when you were pregnant. What time of day did you take it, and did it make you feel drowsy? Was the b-6 in your prenatal vitamin not enough, did it have to be an additional b-6 pill? Thanks!!


23 KathEats March 31, 2013 at 5:40 am

I took it before meals and never felt drowsy, which surprised me. My doctors advice had me take it in addition to my vitamin but have your doctor check yours


24 ds March 31, 2013 at 12:20 pm

Thanks! So you took one whole pill 3x a day then?


25 KathEats March 31, 2013 at 2:15 pm

I can’t remember if it was whole or half… Whatever I said on BERF. Please check with your doctor first!


26 Jelena@ FabLifePhd March 30, 2013 at 5:01 pm

Oh, the beaty of Chimay. I love trapist beers, but speaking about Belgian beers, don’t forget Kwaak, Kriek and golden standard Duvel!
I did my Master in Belgium and gained like 6 kg in 10 months. Mostly due to beers and a bit due to fries and chocolate :) I don’t regret any gram of it :)


27 robin March 30, 2013 at 6:37 pm

yolkless eggs?? Real eggs?? And are you planning on bike riding with Mazen this summer?


28 Kristi March 30, 2013 at 8:08 pm

Do you add cinnamon and/or vanilla to your french toast egg mixture? I do and can’t imagine eating the remaining egg scrambled! And with almond butter!!! Crazytown. I eat my eggs with ketchup though so what do I know :)


29 KathEats March 31, 2013 at 5:36 am

Not always. But they are fine scrambled!


30 Kristin Thomas March 30, 2013 at 9:33 pm

ok i never thought i would post here but…i want to move in with your family! i would babysit! 😉
i want to eat awesome meals with you and go to the bakery and sample all the amazing breads and treats and maybe hang out when you have a couple evenings out!!!!
seriously, thanks for such a fun blog and letting me semi-vicariously live your fun life!!!! :)


31 Live Love Yum Well March 30, 2013 at 10:47 pm

Love that mug! Do you still bike Kath? I remember reading about it all the time the before your pregnancy but not since.


32 KathEats March 31, 2013 at 5:38 am

I bike to the gym or yoga or wherever I go somewhere babyless and the weather is nice. I missed it!


33 [email protected] March 31, 2013 at 12:17 am

You are the oatmeal queen! :) Those banana oats in a jar sound amazing!


34 Emily @ Life on Food March 31, 2013 at 6:03 am

We are suppose to get more snow tomorrow night. I don’t know how much more I can take it. Cute, cute mug! Nice job Matt.


35 Josie March 31, 2013 at 12:17 pm

Go Duke! Love that spoon!


36 [email protected] for the Soul March 31, 2013 at 4:38 pm

Hehehe he looks like he’s feeling stuffed from those green beans! So adorable….:D And I can’t believe that within one week it went from Narnia weather to spring! 0_0


37 Tony March 31, 2013 at 5:51 pm

Love your pics! All food looks so yummy!


38 Alex @ Raw Recovery March 31, 2013 at 8:07 pm

If you ever visit Denver, you absolutely MUST got to a Belgian Beer Café called the Cheeky Monk. They carry imported beer from Belgium and other places in Europe, including Kwak, which you should try if you haven’t! They also have amazing Belgian food, including the best french fries, a beer hummus, and beignets for desert. The bottle of Chimay is what spurred this random thought.


39 KathEats March 31, 2013 at 8:29 pm



40 Sara @ sarasmiles April 1, 2013 at 6:56 am

That hot cross bun sandwich looks amazing! I have been making a 1-egg omellete on the side with almond butter toast, and I just end up putting the egg on top of the toast. I really like the combination!


41 Sabrina @ Living, Learning, Eating April 1, 2013 at 7:01 am

Your breakfasts look amazing! You’ve definitely gotten me hooked on the granola + yogurt + drippy nut butter combo in the last few years :)

We’ve actually had a lovely weekend (so March going out like a lamb – which was great, since it was my birthday and Easter!) but it’s pretty dark and damp and rainy today…hopefully not a sign of what April will bring! Haha


42 Melissa K April 1, 2013 at 9:07 am

I’ve never seen a yolkless egg, but I have seen a double-yolk egg!

Do you refrigerate your Wild Friends (as it instructs on the jar)? I do, but it is completely hard out of the fridge. I have microwaved to return it to drippy status, but wanted to see if you had any suggestions….


43 KathEats April 1, 2013 at 9:08 am

I do not..


44 Mommypage April 1, 2013 at 12:45 pm

That’s surprising that it’s been snowing in Charlottesville! I hope you and your family had fun in the snow though! Enjoy it while it is here!


45 Mommypage April 4, 2013 at 5:30 pm

The bowl of fruit with granola looks amazing!! The plate is so colorful with all the different fruits. It looks like a great variety of fruits and so nutritious.


46 Neil Butterfield May 2, 2013 at 10:08 pm

Karh, your pictures really get my taste buds going :-) I love how you prepare your food.
