Today, we had a welcomed break from the rain, and the sun even made a brief appearance! To celebrate, we took the toddlers out to play on a beautiful stretch of beach in Tlell.
They especially liked playing on and around this rock.
On days like this, when we are actually able to spend some time outside of the house, dinner is usually a random hodge-podge of left-over ingredients. Tonight’s hodge-podge consisted of curly pasta, penne pasta, sliced carrots, green peas, diced tomatoes, chopped up Gardein “chicken” breasts, marinara sauce, and some melted cheddar Daiya vegan cheese. On the side was some of Laurie’s delicious homemade hummus with sprouted whole grain toast and steamed broccoli with a light drizzling of miso gravy. Zander’s favorite part of this meal (and most meals) was eagerly shoveling the food out of the way so that he could see the ladybugs and various other animals featured on the plate underneath. Hey, whatever it takes to get him to clean his plate!
To close, here’s a photo of a funny sign we saw today. No, Tlell, that is not too much to ask, especially since we have a car full of toddlers. We appreciate and will honor your request.
