Helluva start

Hi friends! Our little family has just had a helluva start to the week and I really wanted to share.

MBD got back into his early morning workout and I made egg white omelets with orange peppers, spinach and provolone, coffee and smoothies ("fooney" as Sophie calls them).

1 cup tofu
2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
1 cup fresh cantaloupe
1 cup frozen organic berries
1/2 cup rice milk

Sophie got to push the buttons on the blender which I think blew her little mind. We then had a playdate with Sophie's cousin Hannah as half the town was flooded from a ridiculous amount of rain last night - and who wants to get out and about in that?

Hannah introduced little miss to My Little Pony cartoons, they colored together like best friends, and played a little hide and seek while Kristin and I sat in the baby's room brainstorming. Sophie ate her whole lunch of apples and corn tortilla quesadilla (with organic chicken and cheddar cheese), and then hit the hay for a lovely little nap. So did mommy.

A quick run to the grocery, a long walk with the dogs and some playtime at the park rounded out the afternoon. Daddy came home early and we had our most successful family dinner attempt yet! I made pork chops with apples and Sophie ate nearly every bite on her little divided plate! (I added carrots and doubled the onion and apple in the recipe.) The couscous on the side was probably her favorite thing.

Dinner was cooked and eaten, dishes done, cookies and milk shared, playtime done, books read, teeth brushed, pj's on, and tomorrow's lunch packed all before 7pm. Phew! Hope you are off to a great week!
