Lately, I have been following this little bean around the house as she has gone from crawling to walking MUCH quicker than we had all anticipated!!!

Food wise- I continue to cook for our family…

Staple breakfast: 2 corn tortillas, shredded zucchini, one egg and two egg whites, feta or light Cabot, and peach salsa,

Weekend Breakfasts

With Dave on the road this weekend I had a friend over for brunch. I had seen on healthy aperture a recipe for baked potatoes with an egg and instantly wanted to put something together.

So here it is- a baked potato (baked in the oven for 45 minutes on 400F) covered with Cabot cheddar, salsa, a sunny side up egg, and Cabot sour cream.

This is a perfect weekend breakfast treat especially with a cup of hot black tea and shaken soy milk. I like to pretend the soy milk is a foamy latte. Smile

I also made Maddie-monster some baby french toast with whole grain bread. So far Mads does not have a problem with gluten so we are going full steam ahead -just keeping them separate from mama’s.

Baby French Toast

 

Ingredients

2 slices whole grain bread or gluten free bread(if needed)
1 large egg
1/4 cup milk
dash of vanilla
shake of ground cinnamon 
1 tablespoon unsalted butter 

Whisk the egg in a bowl. Add the milk, vanilla, and cinnamon, and whisk to combine. Pour egg mixture evenly over bread slices, turning bread carefully with your hands to coat pieces evenly.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add butter, and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan. Add both slices of bread and cook, undisturbed, until bread has browned, about 2 to 4 minutes. Carefully flip and cook other side.

Maddie wants to wish everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day- with this ridiculous smile Winking smile

She has already had a wonderful morning – opening up some V-day treats including this sweet vest from Mymy and a card from Gran. How cute is this vest!?! She is going to wear it to support the Crimson hockey and basketball ladies this weekend!

Maddie and her sitter made these cards for Dave and I yesterday– apparently R had to take the marker from Mads every 10 seconds- ha! Baby scribbles= happy mama!

After putting Mads down for her morning nap I heated up leftover red quinoa, Cabot cheddar, butternut squash bake for breakfast – I love warm savory foods in the am!
