Our sun is back out and the skies are bright blue. We couldn’t wait to get outside!
Breakfast on the deck – a super green smoothie with some Quaker Real Medleys granola on top. By the way, the answer to this question was smoothie!! Although it sure looked like pea soup to me.
We hosted Sylvia for a sleepover so her parents could celebrate their wedding anniversary earlier this week. The kids had fun at the playground –
Fingerpainting (thank goodness for Crayola’s mess-free line of craft supplies!)
And baking (and eating!) double chocolate chip cookies
This is why I don’t bake – zero willpower for the dough!!
Matt and I have been eating well these past few days. While I supervised the Sayas, Matt made this dish of garlic and white wine pasta with mussels, greens and red peppers. Some vino as well!
Simple breakfast on a busy morning getting two to school! Karen bought some raisin bran while she was here, so I had a bowl of that. I don’t eat cereal for breakfast that often, but this was pretty tasty!
We had this soup for dinner and lunch this week too – sweet potatoes, leftover quinoa, bacon, bok choy and broth. Super simple and healthy – and wonderful topped with goat cheese!
Matt and I had another fancy dinner this week, and he cooked while I put Mazen to bed. He made friends with the owners of this line of meals – Hunter Gatherer Game Dinners – and they gave us a few to try out.
This kit was Maple Plank Pork Tenderloin with Dried Mushroom Farro Risotto. It came with a cedar plank and all of the special ingredients packed inside minus the pork and any veggies to have on the side. We added some yellow green beans, and the whole meal was wonderful! The pork was covered in a bourbon-infused sweet paprika dry rub and a homemade BBQ sauce. And the farro was so flavorful made with dried mushrooms. These would make a great gift for a foodie friend – check out all the kit options.
And finally I leave you with a lovely photo of my leg – and the soccer ball imprint leftover from this weekend’s game!
