Another weekend filled with fun to share with you all!
Fridays After Five have begun, which means we have plans every Friday until September!
It was so much fun to take Mazen, although a bit tricky to work around naps and bedtime. We took his dinner and ours to go and things worked out well in the end.
Little guy liked his broccoli, peas, butternut squash and green beans blend!
We parents shared two salads with our friends – a lentil and millet Moroccan salad (recipe coming) and a kale salad, plus we munched on their arugula pasta salad and a triple berry + mint fruit salad. Delish!
Another weekend routine that has started with springtime is the city market.
We met Matt there for breakfast because he had baked me a surprise loaf of Irish Soda Bread! My favorite, and like Christmas in July to get it so far out from St. Patrick’s Day.
Also for breakfast we shared fresh strawberries and a small donut
Later for lunch we made salads with leftover veggie burgers a friend made and kale from the garden
Mazen enjoyed more veggie blend and some oatmeal
Later in the afternoon we took Beansy to the park for some swingin’
And crawl practice
And laugh practice
And by late afternoon, we headed into the country to a friends’ house for an Alternative Foxfield Party. Foxfield is a big horse race here and quite the wild event. We used to attend the Carolina Cup in Camden, SC in college – I don’t know if I want to relive those days!
We dressed in bold colors and bowties to celebrate : )
We nibbled on cheese and crackers
Sipped mint juleps, of course
Raced the horses….er, zebras
And enjoyed dinner outside
Featuring No Bull Burgers
And a great arugula and bean salad
Sunday was slow and boring in contrast. We watched 3 episodes of Mad Men, took a walk, one of us took 3 naps, I went to yoga at Opal Yoga, Matt went running and we had quiche for dinner. Exciting times!
