Mazen and I have been doing more watercolors. This is my portrait of the cat legend, Lillian Valentine. I had fun telling Mazen how she was his auntie cat in heaven. It’s too bad they never got to meet – they had similar strong personalities
Mazen also had fun doing some digital art on Thomas’s work iPad (that came with the fancy pencil). This is Pennywise!!
Birchie’s animal interest continues to be Peppa Pig – and the Berenstain bears! I’ve had fun playing on the floor with him setting up little houses.
Here are some meals of late!
Plenty Cville has its own version of a sheet pancake. And this was anything but flat as a pancake! Hers was doubly thick and filled with strawberries!
Years later, the end of a PB jar is still VERY exciting to me!! Filled with hot whipped banana oatmeal, blueberries, and granola on top! (Need more overripe banana ideas – check out Anne’s post: Healthy Recipes for Overripe Bananas!)
Thomas picked up some bagels from Bodos (the drive-thru!) and we had them all week for breakfast. So chewy!
Sweet potato, beet + farro salad with Terra chips. (Remember those chips? I forgot about them but they went so well with the roasted beets and taters.)
Leftover tacos as a salad!
Beer with a lime for taco night!
Our weekly spread –
We switched it up with guac and blue sheets 🙂
Luce Pasta is a new place that opened downtown just before downtown shut down. We ordered two pastas and a kale salad from them recently and it was DELISH! The kids loved them too.
And finally – Daily Harvest now has scoops!!
Three flavors inspired by vanilla, strawberry and mint, all made from coconut ice cream. Guys I am not a lover of non-dairy ice cream styles, and these are GOOD! Super slow-churned creamy and not the least bit icy. The flavors are awesome too. The vanilla sesame is sweetened with maple and tasted like caramelized sugar. I love the strawberry compote swirl too. As always, you can get $25 off your first order through my link.
