Grammie Buzz and Pea came to visit this weekend!
(Grand Pepaw has transformed into simply P which I think is cuter as Pea!)
We had a great time eating and playing.
Thursday we went on our date night. Before we left, we set the grandparents up with homemade pizza, salad and wine.
We put Mazen to bed and left them watching him sleep on monitor. Luckily all went well!
The next day we went to Great Harvest to visit the bunnies
And ate sandwiches. Pimento cheese is the best!
And read stories
Lots of playing and napping followed!
That night we grilled mushrooms and asparagus
And ate burgers (mine was a leftover Mamapea millet burger)
What was Matt thinking!?
The Easter grandma brought some treats for Mazen and me that we split up for dessert that night
I enjoyed these so much in a variety of little bite-sized pieces!
Saturday breakfast. Hot cross bun, banana + PB and yogurt.
I went to the gym and then after noon nap we went out to lunch
To Eppies, where I had the best Santa Monica salad with black beans and cornbread
We had fabulous weather so we were able to sit outside! Mazen likes his new Uppababy G-lite petite umbrella stroller : ) (We got a 2012 model on sale)
I took advantage of mom being here and prepared dinner after lunch since they were heading back to NC later that afternoon. Then I just had to put it in the oven when I was solo again.
Marinated tofu in Bone Suckin’ sauce, sweet potato fries and kale chips. The sweet potato was totally fine being cut open hours before it baked. I put it in the fridge covered in the mean time.
Coconut butter was the best part –
Plus the last baby bread bunny standing!
Our little Easter ham
We hosted Easter dinner for Matt’s aunt+uncle+cousins and Karen.
The fish was rolled in Whole Foods’ Lemon Almond panko and then seared and baked for 10 minutes. It was perrrrrfect!
I love asparagus most grilled <3
I made the risotto in the rice cooker. It was really good, but not quite as good as a traditional risotto. But given the hands-off time, I’ll take it. Peas, cremini mushrooms and risotto rice plus parmesan, butter and 2 tbsp heavy cream to finish.
We had Great Harvest pesto parmesan swirl and hot cross buns!
Karen’s cheesecake was the BEST! The crust….toffee love!
