We had an awesome night’s sleep on Friday night. 5.5 hours + 2.5 hours. Only one nighttime feeding! I know better than to assume this is how it will be forever, but we are enjoying it so much right now.
Grammie Buzz played with Maze while I made us both baked pumpkin oatmeal : ) I added some coconut to the topping instead of brown sugar, and it toasted perfectly in the oven!
Topped with sunflower butter and more coconut.
After breakfast, mom and I walked down to the bakery for exercise where we said goodbye to them. She is heartbroken she won’t see Maze again until Christmas! (Unless she decides to come visit!)
Matt and I then walked to the city market where we shopped around and got lunch.
I had a root veggie wrap in naan from Greenie’s, a really fun veggie-centric place. This had everything from beets to sweet potatoes and a spread of goat cheese on the edges. It was awesome!
Also enjoyed a bottle of Nugget’s Raw Kombucha – Citra Hops flavor!
We walked home and spent the rest of the afternoon hanging out with M. He loves toys! I’m the proudest mama in the world when he interact with them. And smiles at them. So proud.
We also test drove the Toyota Highlander and loved it!!
This evening, we were invited to a lovely dinner put on by the lovely Sarah and her husband, John.
The table was on their back deck and dressed beautifully! Loved the burlap runner. Heaters on top!
We brought a few dozen of our rolls to go with dinner plus a pumpkin bean dip I put together –
- 1 cup white beans
- 1/2 cup pumpkin
- 1/4 cup ricotta
- 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
- 1/4 tsp salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tbsp smoked maple syrup
All blended together in the vita-mix.
We had brie and grapes to start –
Paired with this spicy jalapeno wine!! What an interesting flavor. I couldn’t drink more than a few sips, but I loved the concept.
More apps included a quiche
And cilantro deviled eggs. Both brought by other guests.
The main course was turkey loin with rosemary, roasted potatoes, asparagus with lemon hollandaise, and cheesy roasted cauliflower
We had a great time with our friends!
Our sweet baby was upstairs with his first babysitter and his friend Sylvia. I was able to go up and feed him when he needed me. They had a fun time playing together!
We ended the night by a warm fire, but Matt and I left a little early to tuck Mazen into bed. Even when he was just upstairs, we missed him so much! Fun evening with friends though.
