Oh yes, I’m changing the title of my Friday [Favorites] posts to ‘Friday Things + Favorite Links.’ Exciting times, I tell you!
As for those Friday things, let’s see…
Overall, this week turned out to be a good one.
Kaiden and I got to see some of my favorite former and current coworkers, celebrate Thea’s birthday, and eat some delicious food (Frontera Grill and India House). YAY and YUM!
Kaiden turned 2 months on Tuesday and nine weeks yesterday. My baby’s growing up! 🙂
I’m trying to get back into my weekly meal planning mode because it helps keep us and our bank account in check. Also, we can’t/shouldn’t eat cereal for dinner every night. Pre-Kaiden, the food I made ranged from super simple to a little more involved. Now? Meal prep needs to be minimal and super duper quick. I made my vegetarian lentil chili the other night, and it totally fit the bill. Next time I may double the recipe and freeze a portion for later.
I also made (threw together?) quick Southwestern salads one night. Salads are the best bet right now…as long as I know exactly how I want to craft them and have everything pretty much ready to go.
At some point this weekend, I plan to make Pad Thai from the Thug Kitchen cookbook my sister let me borrow. This is neither quick or easy. Yeah…soooo…wish me luck! Also, a review of this hilarious cookbook is coming soon!
What else? Vishnu worked a short call shift on Thursday (8a-8p), and that was the day Kaiden chose to freak out if wasn’t holding him at all times. I somehow managed to fit in a Barre3 Online workout…with three breaks throughout of course. And that’s about it. This little guy of ours, I tell you!
As far as our weekend plans go, we have a few things lined up – the zoo, pizza night out, movie night in, and my fantasy football draft. We’ll see what other shenanigans we get into. 🙂
And now for the highly anticipated links of the week!
Boredom, anger, and fear equal a ‘soul emergency’
“Most of us aren’t as self-aware as we think.”
Shame is something we all experience but not something we all know how to deal with.
Do you believe in guardian angels?
Empathy is key – will have to remember this when K gets older
I know we still have some time, but I can’t wait to introduce K to real food!
Something all parents should read
Along the same vein as the above
I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately
With that, I wish you a happy Friday!
