A little peek at the last couple weeks:
Starting off a day right.
When dad is off at a music rehearsal, this is how we study 6th grade algebra homework… (Yes, got it all done before dad got home.)
Sometimes you accidentally pour the whole 16 ounce container of yogurt in your bowl…just add bananas. Eat on the way to the gym. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
We got caught in a big downpour about halfway home. (It was a fun walk. P.S. Percy doesn’t know what to think of overflowing storm drains and that produces quite a dramatic pull-on-the-leash dance.)
Guess who’s avoiding going to bed in this photo op…
Tried some new Indian recipes from Madhur Jaffrey’s vegetarian cookbook… DELICIOUS! I can’t wait to try more.
This beer was interesting, to say the least. Not my preferred flavors but fun to try! It was brewed with spices that are used to make scrapple and indeed, did taste weirdly breakfast-y.
Comfort food… vegetarian (Quorn) chicken and dumplings.
At least a couple days of the week, I pack my husband’s lunch for him to take to work. Toby’s tofu pâté is one we enjoy (especially the jalapeño version).
This cat has the most awful blood-curdling meow. And his preferred times to vocalize said meow: between 1 o’clock and 5 o’clock in the morning. But at least he has pretty eyes and soft fur.
Another new recipe experiment. A Moroccan sweet potato and lentil soup.
Some highlights from a couple of Silas’s recent basketball games. He’s number 54.
Probably the best fettuccine alfredo I’ve made. Hooray!
Pre-basketball game breakfast. Cranberry hazelnut french toast, hash browns, and some fresh mango and banana.
All I ever want to do is lay around cuddling the dog. True story. She turned 11 months old this week!
I got to have the entire spin room at the gym to myself. The quiet of the huge room was awesome.
A vegetarian sheet pan dinner experiment with a side of steamed then sautéed broccoli.
Handdrawn Valentine’s Day card.
And since Valentine’s Day also fell on Taco Tuesday we went out for some margaritas, tacos and nachos. All day happy hour! Woo-hoo!
Two days later, we shared MORE nachos. This time with beers, at the pub where some of my husband’s students had a poetry reading featuring a few songwriting students as well.
Stripes and a cat squeeze.
My husband and his band opened for Terrapin Flyer here in Ashland…
Nearly two dozen cheese enchiladas (with un-photoed beans and rice) when we had a sleepover that included three extra kids Friday night… The nine year old kid asked me, “Do you make your own chicken?” I told him there was no chicken in the enchiladas, to which he replied, “OH. We don’t eat this stuff at my house. Do you HAVE any chicken? I like MEAT… Beef? Ribs…? I’m a beef guy. Or do you guys just eat… this stuff over here?” Bwahaha.
Hope you’ve had a great couple of weeks!
