What is so neat about visiting your adult kids – that would be you two, chickpeas – is that you get to see your handywork in action. Having time in Nashville, post-Livie’s arrival, means we are enjoying food shopping and meals together. And I must say, Ab, you very much lean into healthy eating, which is great to see.
We came home from a shopping trip with some healthy items, like whole wheat hamburger buns for vegetarian sloppy joes, tofu for stir fry, fresh basil and mozzarella cheese for homemade pizza, fresh fruits and veggies, etc.
Kitchen time….. Fin loves helping in the kitchen. In the early morn he helps his daddy make their breakfast smoothie – it will be with either kale or spinach, and lots of fruit. Here he is with Auntie Court stirring up some goodness. Maybe a spinach lasagna?
Meals here are varied and delish. Lunches have been spinach wraps with roasted turkey breast, provolone, tomatoes, lettuce and chipotle mayo. That mayo adds a WOW factor.
Ab suggested pizza last night. Dane makes a terrific crust, and we topped one with fresh basil leaves and mozzarella slices, and the other with shredded smoked gouda cheese, roasted butternut squash, fresh diced tomatoes and big dollops of pesto. So good.
And every day we have gotten in a little walking….
A good balance in life.. family time, good food and fresh air.
