spinach, 1 1/2 frozen bananas, 3 frozen strawberries
Can you tell I need to buy more of the vanilla flavor? I've been
out for a while and just keeping having this one, day after day!
I don't mind though.
Then I got home and played with this little one who discovered my camera today...
|"What's this Mom?"|
I tried saying to her, "Smile!" Then I'd take her picture and show her how it looked on the screen afterwards and she thought it was pretty funny!
Like the no shirt look? We were gearing up for dinner, and after treating too many stains to count in the past few months, I've learned to just take the clothes off! The pants came of right before we ate as well.
|"Whoa picture time!"|
|"Okay, I'll smile."|
|"Mom...more pictures? Come on."|
|Telling the world "hello".|
|Resting on the couch, apparently only her head was tired.|
|"Just sleep rollin' guys, nothing to see here."|
|7:15 PM Dinner: "Homemade Genghis Khan" with gluten-free|
rice noodles, baked tofu, corn, mushrooms, broccoli, carrots,
and onions all cooked up on our wok with chipotle spices,
cilantro, and Braggs Liquid Aminos. One of our favorite meals!
|A must-have for this meal is this Trader Joe's Sweet Chili Sauce!|
It's gluten-free and vegan (oh and delicious!).
I call it "Stir-fry ketchup"!
Remember how much I love any type of Mongolian BBQ? Check it out in this post, this post, or even this post where I compare it to why I wanted a home birth! Can you tell I love this kind of food?
|Dessert: "Chocolate Mousse Frosting" from Chocolate-Covered Katie|
She perked right up for dinner and as usual, went crazy for the tofu!
|"Did my mom put tofu in this?"|
|"I'm going to eat it all up!"|
|Can't even remember what silly thing she was doing here.|
|Nothing but fun, when you eat dinner with Avery.|
|Wait for it...|
|"Mmmwaaaa! Kisses to you greenies!"|
