^^When you walk to school with a turtle peeking out of your backpack! Mazen said: “He looks like E.T.!”
Breakfast of eggs, grapes (which I am currently obsessed with), and blueberry mini muffins I have coming up for a recipe post!
Next up: green smoothie, fried egg, and mango.
And finally, a pita stuffed with banana and almond butter and a handful of raspberries. Mazen is currently obsessed with stuffed pitas : )
I had a lot of soup for lunches last week. This was a Cook Smarts chicken soup, which I topped with cheese and Greek yogurt.
One day for lunch I got a big green smoothie from The Juice Place downtown.
This guy was the almond butter one with added spinach and granola on top.
Lunch date at Lampo! I had the kale salad (which is small but mighty) plus the Hell Boy pizza, which is the BEST! So spicy with a drizzle of honey, and the prosciutto pizza with arugula and lemon is another favorite.
For dinner I went over to Sarah’s and made a Cook Smarts butternut squash soup to go with pesto zucchini and rice. We stirred some cooked chicken into the soup to bulk it up a bit with protein.
As mentioned above, that Cook Smarts chicken poblano soup. With all the toppings!
And finally, I went to Southern Crescent with Mazen’s teacher from last year, who is helping me book a tropical vacation for this winter.
The restaurant is in this house in Belmont, and it has an epic porch/patio set up for dining. We sat out on the porch looking in at the cozy bar.
Specializing in New Orleans and southern fare, we started with the jalapeno pimento cheese dip and fried okra. Both were amazing!
I had the shrimp and grits for dinner, which were fabulous. So great as leftovers for lunch the next day!
Hope you guys are having a great week! Sylvia says hi : )
