It’s finally cool enough for jackets here in Cville! It’s crazy how fast the weather goes from too hot to too cold. I’ve been enjoying the chilly mornings and warm afternoons. I hope it stays like this for a long time! Chilly mornings mean oatmeal season is back! I made a bowl of whipped banana oatmeal with granola and vanilla almond butter. One of my all-time favorite combos used to be pumpkin oats with cottage cheese – I’ll have to get both ingredients soon!
Family French Toast
Thomas made the whole family French toast yesterday morning! It’s a great soft food for Birch, and Mazen had thirds. I had a small piece with a leftover smoothie on the side for no reason other than I wanted to save more in the fridge for Birch! Such a good way for him to get some egg since he’s turned against scrambled eggs.
We had a playdate with two of Birch’s little friends. It’s so cute to watch them interact!
B is getting a swing like this one for his birthday! It’s from Sweet Swinging.

Shrimp + Orzo Salad
Plenty is still saving my lunchtimes when I rush in from the gym or work starving. This was a shrimp + orzo salad with olives and tomatoes and arugula. Delish and filling!
Lamb Meatballs + Curry Couscous
A Plenty dinner – lamb meatballs with a raisin pesto. Curried couscous on the side. Thomas and I agreed this would have taken us well over an hour to prepare ourselves (more if you include the dishes). Again, Plenty is such a time saver.
Bean + Rice Bowls
Wednesday night we made bean and rice bowls with chicken and peppers. We’ve been having our nephew over for a dinner play date with Mazen and it makes Wednesdays a lot more fun! The boys had quesadillas and little salads with red peppers.
Handsome First Grader!
Wunder Under Copycats
I bought these leggings from Amazon for $22 after I saw them recommended as Lululemon copycats. They are almost the same as my Wunder Unders. They are great – I will report back if they fall apart when washed. My only compliant is the length is a little long for me, but I already took the tags off so I can’t swap them for these 7/8 ones! D’oh! I wear leggings nonstop in the winter, so I can’t have too many pairs. (And I should probably donate some of my older low rise ones that I never wear – just not into that feel anymore!)
Wish I knew what happened to my foot! I consulted with a doctor friend who said if anything was torn I probably wouldn’t be able to walk. Maybe I just got kicked?? It still hurts a little but not bad. I’m going to try to play on Sunday.
