We had a fabulous Sunday as a family of three. Pancakes. FOUR BABY NAPS!!! Family workout. Staying in our PJs until noon. Organizing the house.
Look at this BIG guy in his crib. Remember when he was just a teeny little doll!?
Matt made us Great Harvest pancakes for breakfast
With bananas embedded inside and sunflower butter + sprinkles on top.
Check out my newest Great Harvest mug! We just got some more for the holiday season at the bakery. We commission them to be handmade by a local potter in Richmond.
After breakfast I made more spiced pecans. LOVE these!
As I said above, we did a whole lotta nothin’ this morning. Just playing with our cutie!
When Matt is home for lunch, we often have canned fish – this time smoked herring!
He made a herring salad with just chopped carrot and some mayonnaise and served that over spinach with more carrot, cheese and Food Should Taste Good chips.
Loved scooping up the fish with the chips. Fish n “chips” – heh heh.
This afternoon we all went to the gym. My upper body is sore from yesterday’s yoga, so I just did cardio today. Walking there and back and elliptical and stairmaster time. I dove into some good home magazines!
Maze stayed asleep after his stroller snooze in kids zone. This is gym nap #2. We are so impressed!
Post workout snack: cereal + milk (with hidden spiced pecans!)
Matt organized his brewery while Maze and I played upstairs. I turned on dim lighting, lit some candles, grabbed a magazine, put the baby in the swing and cranked the Christmas music on HIGH!
I alternated reading to him from Real Simple and singing Christmas carols. Based on the fact that he smiled through my whole “Where Are You Christmas” song, I’d say he liked it
Back in our Charlotte days, Matt and I used to fancy up boxed soups all the time. It’s such an easy way to make a halfway homemade soup. I’ve had this box of Carrot Almond soup in our pantry for a loooong time and decided we had to eat it.
We used that as a base and I added frozen collard greens, 1 cup of frozen peas, half a cup of cooked lentils and 3 slices of bacon, crumbled. Plus Greek yogurt on top.
And spiced pecans!! Dinner was ready in 5 minutes.
Served with a slice of High Five toasted with some melty butter
We’re super excited about the week ahead. An exciting thing happens tomorrow. The bakery is in full out production mode through Wednesday afternoon. Then four days of family fun with Uncle Andrew here!
