A No Nap Sunday


Meadow bug woke up this Sunday while Brooke made us breakfast. Brooke's been making us breakfast more and more on Sundays. I guess I needed a break.

I thought I would make our version of potatoes O'Brein with brussel sprouts.

This was probably the highlight of the day.

Avocado toast has been our new breakfast favorite.

She still prefers feeding herself.

Meadow's new favorite game is climbing in and out of her Bumbo seat.

We've had quite a bit of rain this spring. A night earlier nature washed out our gutters.

We sat around most of morning not wanting to do anything. It was rainy outside, so not much we could do outside. I thought we could really use a rain barrel with all the rain. We looked up how to make your own on Pinterest and then headed to Menards.

We ditched the idea of making a rain barrel since we didn't like any of the garbage cans Menards had. I also needed to pick out some paint for a birthday present I'm working on for Meadow.

While Brooke picked out colors, we got some more grass seed, landscape rocks and a few other odds and ends.

Moroccan-spcied Pastitsio is one of my favorite meals, but it just isn't the same during late Spring.

Back at home we were feeling lazy again. I'm working on a birthday crown for Meadow and wanted to finish it while she was awake to make sure it fit.

We tried to put Meadow down for a nap, but she wasn't having it.


Brooke's obsessed with smoothies lately.

Our garden turned into a patch of weeds since we planted two weeks back.

Since the rain stopped we figured we should probably work on the yard. I wasn't really in the mood for it. During the week I don't mind. I think when Scott helps me it feels more like a chore.

She's always finding something to eat.

Always have to watch her like a hawk. You never know what she might have discovered.

For not napping at all she seemed to be in a pretty good mood.

We were both lazy still. So we ordered Pizza Hut from the Xbox app. I know. I'm embarrassed.

It was too late to make dinner and we don't really care for our local pizza place.

The crust and sauce were as good as I remember, but what's up with their cheese?

I can't remember the last time I had Pizza Hut.

We watched Game of Thrones and Girls.

We've been doing that a lot lately.

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late) Every new season I change the duvet cover.  Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that. I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins. I was wrong, we only needed two pans. By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch. As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m. While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. H

Freaster Sunday

We decided to stay home for Easter this year. We've missed the past few years and seem to be okay with it. We still celebrate in our own way. For breakfast I made oat bran. This time I sweetened it with a little agave. Scott seems to think I only like my oats bland, but that's not true. I make truly interesting oats. Agave, my friends, does not make oatmeal tasty. If you're looking for a quick, but complex variation try this recipe the next time you have a few extra minutes -- unless you like bland-meal. Steel-cut Oats w/ Apple Chips, Raisins and Cinnamon 1 C Water 2/3 C Steel Cut Oats Handful of Apple Chips 1/4 C Raisins 2 T Brown Sugar 1 t Cinnamon Pinch of Salt Cook the first two ingredients for a few minutes over medium heat. When water starts to simmer lower heat and add dried fruit. Cook until tender. While still on heat add a teaspoon of cinnamon, two tablespoons brown sugar and a pinch of salt. Eat. Scott looked for his Easter ba

Food Daze

Remember why we needed a freezer? We did order one from Best Buy that week, but it was on backorder until July 21. We still didn't get it and now they are saying it could be August 28. You have no idea how hard it is to go through the whole summer not being able to make our own ice cream or popsicles. Buying ice cream is nothing compared to making homemade. Please cross your fingers with us in hopes we get it soon. Since Scott had to be to work at 11. We got up early and drove to the farmers market. We had to get there fast, so we couldn't bike. As Brooke noted a few posts back, it seems like more and more people are coming to the Sunday market. It can be pretty chaotic. It took us nearly ten minutes to park. There was so much to choose from this time around. It's a lot more fun to go to the market this time of year. It's really amazing what diverse crops grow in Minnesota's short summer. Makes one wish we didn't waste so much fertile land
