Hello from the Midwest! I took our little guy on his first flight this weekend, and I’m happy to report that we both survived. Hauling a baby through an airport by yourself is quite a workout!
We’re staying with my parents this week, so here’s a peek at what we eat at their house. You may think that my mom spoils me with homemade meals while I’m here, but it’s usually the other way around– I end up making her many of my favorite meals, instead! So, don’t be surprised if these eats look pretty familiar.
I made a big batch of salad dressing this weekend to keep in my parents’ fridge, so salads are easy around here during the week. This one included an entire romaine heart, steamed beets (from Trader Joe’s), herbed goat cheese, and my favorite apple cider vinaigrette. It’s rare that I get to eat while my baby is sleeping, so I really enjoyed sitting down and savoring my meal!
My salad was followed by a couple of pasture-raised fried eggs… but the baby woke up while they were cooking, so they got a little over-done. Whoops. Still good, though.
I found myself a little hungry while we were out at the mall after work, so I tided myself over with this rare treat– a decaf almond milk iced latte. I was happy to see that Nordstrom’s coffee bar carries unsweetened almond milk!
On our way home from the mall, I was starving and too tired to make anything myself. So, we stopped by Whole Foods and picked up these prepared “Veggie Salad Wraps.” They were amazing, especially with the peanut dipping sauce! However, I should have gotten two containers for myself– one didn’t cut it.
So, I snacked on several slices of raw goat cheddar, and my favorite mint dark chocolate for dessert.
