On Saturday we had Vicki Jo's fourth birthday party. It was so fun. We had a pinata, good times in the backyard, and chocolate raspberry cupcakes (her request). I love all the spring birthdays that me and my children have. It makes for such lovely outdoor parties, as long as it's not pouring.
|Birthday cupcakes!! Chocolate raspberry cupcakes with raspberry buttercream. It was my first time making buttercream, and it turned out a little grainy. But I didn't hear any complaints!|
-- breakfast: soaked oatmeal with hemp seeds, dried cherries, bananas, and honey
-- lunch: pork tenderloin, roasted sweet potatoes, green beans with bacon ends
-- supper: Family Dinner!! It was Sean's birthday choice this week. He wanted burgers, and we delivered! Grass-fed goodness for all, plus cheddar, mustard, mayo, lettuce, and onions.
-- breakfast: gonna try to have something quick-fast before I have to be at the airport by 5:40! In fact, I'm thinking I may just pack trail mix with crispy walnuts, dried cherries, and chocolate chips to munch on once I get through security.
-- lunch: in DC somewhere! I'm meeting my best friend's sister Maria for a happy lunch - unless her overdue baby comes first. :)
-- supper will be with the cohort.
Tuesday & Wednesday
Meals are provided as part of my program, and we will go out Wednesday evening somewhere awesome in the area! (I have received a zillion recommendations from friends! Oyamel, Jaleo, Luke's Lobster . . .)
Breakfast is with the cohort, and then lunch will once again be somewhere between Silver Spring Metro and Reagan National Metro. Supper I'm still undecided about. My flight leaves at 5:30 and arrives at 6:35, so I might just have a snack on hand and then wait until I get back to Nashville to eat.
-- breakfast: soaked oatmeal with coconut cream, raisins, canned apples, and honey
-- lunch: probably just a big old salad from somewhere like Panera
-- supper: Pizza Night! I'm thinking it will just be pepperoni and mozzarella. I will try to make a sauce from scratch with some canned tomatoes, but the rest of my game will be off from having been gone all week. :)
-- breakfast: soaked oatmeal with coconut cream, raisins, canned pears, and honey
-- lunch: carrot-ginger soup, raw cheese, sourdough toast
-- supper: roast chicken, mashed potatoes, turnip greens, radishes with butter & salt
