...to eat breakfast during tummy time - banana blueberry baked oatmeal following *this recipe* (12).
...to see sweat dripping on the treadmill - I ran, or jogged, a 5k! It took me 34 minutes, but I did it.
...to scarf down the most convienent item in the fridge for lunch - leftover cilantro coconut rice and mango salsa (7) and
Greek Yogurt, cinnamon and applesauce (2).
...to make it somewhere ON TIME. Ina had to get her heel pricked for a blood test (I am going to have nightmares of her screams for months) and I had a midwife appointment, but we made it through both appointments without any additional crying - at least on her part. I snacked on some cottage cheese and a pear (4) when we got back home.
...to walk into a house that smells wonderfully of dinner that is almost done in the crockpot. I made balsamic beef following *this recipe*. Served with baked potato and steamed broccoli and cauliflower covered in cheese (22).
Dan said this was the best meal I have made in a long time. I am putting that recipe in the permanent rotation.
...to enjoy dessert (5) while Dan rocked Ina to sleep.
Poor Baby Girl is in such a good mood all day, but this past week, as soon as Dan gets home and we try to eat dinner, she is not happy at all. So, Dan and I do the hand-off while we each try to finish our meal before it gets cold.
Thought for the day
