Happy weekend everybody (for us - Baroque recording, Verdi's Requiem and Piazzola weekend)!!
Life around here has been a quick, fun and pretty crazy. We are supposed to get hit with another winter storm on Sunday but I can sense Spring on the horizon. Here are some tidbits of what we've been up to!
Climbing requires A LOT of energy and what better than homemade pizza to re-charge. Cooking with Soren has just gotten more fun (and adventuresome). He LOVES to make pizza and has gotten quite good at it - or at least eating the toppings while putting them on 'more cheese, pleeeeease' and of course I comply, since I am scarfing it by the handfuls as well. And I am always reminded 'ovens HOT! momma! BEEEEE CARE-ful!'
It actually warmed up enough that all the snow FINALLY melted - can you believe it?! Which also meant GIANT, GIANT puddles for toddler play. We had a blast out in the warm sun splashing in puddles and going for bike rides. Oh - and not only is Soren a great kitchen helper, but he's in charge of the list at the grocery store. And to think - I almost forgot candles, who put those on the list?!
yes - food is kinda a big deal around here. We dig food - to cook, eat, smell, taste and touch. Soren was making 'yellow dough, momma!' on the right. He was stained with turmeric for almost 3 days - love it! Here he is chowing down on the broccoli cheddar soup I made while he prepped the 'dough' and baked potatoes (and yes, my kiddo eats the skins first. It took a silly amount of convincing to try the inside - he ended up dipping it in his soup. Whatever works!)
The soup in the pic is pureed but here is my general recipe for Broccoli Cheddar Soup. YUM!!!
