Hanging out at home
It's felt like such a lazy weekend, even though we had plenty to keep us busy. AudioDad's had laryngitis, Munch has the occasional sniffle & sneeze (and I'm drinking my DanActive like crazy to boost my immune system). It's really chilly and windy out, and all of us wanted to just stay in our jammies. After our warm bowls of brown-sugary oatmeal, Munch and I started the tackling the massive piles of catalogs that are arriving daily. She loves to sit and read magazines and catalogs with me-I think I have a budding online shopper. It was a shame to interrupt that mood to head out to gymnastics. (No photos of that yet- I tried my camera phone, but those pics turned out horribly. And I haven't seen another camera-wielding parent in our group yet...I'm not sure I want to be the first, but maybe for the sake of the blog...)
Dinner was yummy and simple- chicken, corn & black bean enchiladas.
I finally got Munch to eat a salad (the texture of lettuce by itself was always strange to her) and we shared a pomegranate for dessert.
Munch's dinner- i just love these cute little compartmented dishes!
I experimented with a new recipe this morning- streusel-topped eggnog muffins! I figure if I can get them a little moister, I can make little eggnog quick bread loaves for the holidays!
I didn't get much help from Munch this morning. She more quiet than usual, so when I checked in on her, this is what I found:
She's spent most of the day in her room, reading books, only coming out for meals. Can you tell she's our kid?
Taking a big bite...while Cricket stands by for any falling crumbs!
