Monday, Monday. Can’t trust that day.
^^”Where’d the frisbee go!?”
We were back to the grind – strength class/ABC conditioning followed by lunch, quiet time/work, outside play time, dinner.
Lunch was salad made with mixed greens dressed in lemon olive oil, lemon and salt plus yellow pepper, yummy cheese, cottage cheese and smoked salmon. I used to put cottage cheese on salads with blue cheese dressing all the time in college – an old favorite!
Dinner tonight was the KERF special with help from Grillmaster Matt.
I made some mashed sweet potatoes, which M loved. I boiled sweet potatoes for about 10 minutes (maybe 15?) until they were cooked tender and then smashed them with 1/4 tsp kosher salt, a pinch of nutmeg, a heaping tbsp coconut butter and a tsp of brown sugar. Quite nice! I always leave the skins in and Mazen called them “stripes” – ha!
I actually had plans for salmon for dinner, but one of the pieces I thawed out was just not smelling right, so we tossed it and made a couple of No Bull Burgers instead. M got the one piece of good salmon. He has gotten so picky that he won’t even try his vegetables most of the time, but he actually did try the asparagus! He got a few bites in and said he was done. I think I made it too spicy, actually. One step forward, many steps back : )
The adults loved the asparagus!
Plans for the night include:
Finishing a blog post for tomorrow
A bubble bath
Sleepytime tea (always)
Survivor Australia finale!!!
