Don’t worry oatmeal, I still luv ya!
M and I went to Pump this morning, meaning the weight class and not the thing that helps milk flow : )
On the walk home, I had the ultimate debate: I knew I had about 30 minutes before M would want to eat again, so did I shower or eat lunch!? Both had pros and cons, but I ended up choosing lunch. Otherwise I would have had to shower and nurse for 30 minutes hungry, and being hungry is no fun!
I thought about this salad all morning and couldn’t wait to dig in!
Mixed greens, olive oil, salt, avocado, No Bull Burger, Cville Crunch “croutons,” dried figs and GOAT FETA! SO GOOD!
And within 30 seconds of my last bite, it was time for Mazen’s lunch. Good timing!
We had more good timing this afternoon as M took a long nap in his swing while I had a 2pm freelance project possibility call. And then we played for a while when he woke up.
Afternoon snack: apple + cheese + choco almond butter
We took a walk later in the afternoon to go pick up Matt, who had walked to the bakery today. Happy times! The weather today was balmy and soooo warm!
We invited Karen over for dinner tonight since she hadn’t gotten to play with M in a while. He was all smiles for his KK!
She brought cheese – an aged gouda that had those delicious crunchy crystal bits that I love so much in cheese!
We’ve been lovin’ on these crackers lately:
Our meal was something I put together in my mind that came together really well:
Fresh Mona Lisa Pasta (ok, I had regular whole wheat in mind but Karen surprised us with the fresh kind!) with sautéed shrimp, wilted spinach and Uniquely Greek feta spinach spread as a creamy sauce. We just stirred the sauce in with a dash of hot pasta water and it turned into a nice creamy sauce in seconds.
A little sauv blanc to go with
Karen and I watched the show The Palace on Netflix with dessert. (Did you hear the royal news today!?!?)
Thanks again Justin!
Matt and Mazen were not the least bit interested in a show about royalty, so they played with birdies.
