Happy Monday, and a Happy Lunar New Year!

23 Jan

The weekend was a blur – the snowfall resulted in school being cancelled, and we spent a lovely weekend with a few hours of outdoor snow time.  The little one ran around outside, both hands throwing fistfuls of the fluffy, powdery snow into the air, as she looked upwards, her mouth open to catch snowflakes as she shouted, “Snow!! Snow!! Snow!!”

The older one flopped down every couple of feet to make snow angels.

The outdoor activity was capped off with homemade hot cocoa (Trader Joe’s Organic Cocoa) with mini marshmallows

We also managed a few runs at a local park on the inner tube – Papa spun them around as they slid down the hill with the other neighborhood children, their giggling and laughing heard all the way down.

A Happy Lunar New Year to all!

Today’s lunch included:

Grilled shiozake, or salted salmon, flaked

Steamed multi-grain rice with gomashio or sesame salt

Roasted golden beet stars

Baby Carrots

Blackberries
