This weekend was exactly what I hoped it would be- low key. Hailey and I cheered David on at his Friday evening soccer game.
And that was probably the wildest thing we did all weekend. Saturday filled up with biking around to garage sales and friends’ houses. I love seeing other people’s stuff. I got a giggle out of this and wondered how many other unused kits are out there…
We played outside and dabbled in some home projects.
3 homebrews on tap- coming soon to a garage near you! Well, near me, I guess. After a while we decided we just needed to relax. So with margaritas in hand, we did.
The weather was 75 and sunny. We all soaked in the fact that it is finally boating weather!
She was happier than her expression conveys.
Saturday night meant grilling.
And couch snoozing by 9:30.
This weekend was perfect because things are about to get a little crazy this week. So crazy in fact, that I only have one real dinner planned. This made for some unusual grocery shopping on Sunday.
I picked up some snacks and staples to have around for the week and quickly realized that there are at least 5 items I buy every single week at the grocery store regardless of what the week’s schedule looks like.
First up- bananas.
For Hailey, for me, for smoothies, for baking- we fly through bananas around here.
I switch between baby spinach, kale, arugula and mixed greens, but I always buy a green for the week to wilt, eat as salad or to throw into omelets.
Then there is hummus. Sabra, to be exact.
It’s an item I hate to love. This little container costs $5. That’s expensive! I sometimes make homemade hummus or buy less expensive brands, but I always come back to Sabra because it’s just better than the rest. If someone can lead me to a recipe that ends up tasting like this, I’ll love you forever.
Cabot strawberry is wonderful for frozen Greek yogurt drops, Hailey loves the Chobani Champions as part of her lunches and I accidentally picked up this Stonyfield regular yogurt and am glad I did; it’s delicious!
And always, a Hailey snack.
Sometimes it’s Annie’s cheddar bunnies, sometimes it’s toasted O’s. This week it’s multigrain squares. As long as they fit in her snack cup, I keep trying different snacks.
And as a bonus, lately I can’t help but splurge on these Seagram’s Seltzer Waters.
I’m usually a La Croix girl, but these are less expensive at my Harris Teeter. I have to limit myself to one a day to make the 12 pack last, but they are just so darn refreshing!
