what we're eating

By Tuesday, April 30, 2013 , ,

The weather this weekend was incredible. I felt winter finally unclench its steely grasp as the sun warmed my face and I sipped a cocktail on my patio. With the warm weather, dirt and more dirt entered our house via the two little rugrats that make our days sunny, no matter the forecast.

We played outside a lot and even had picnic lunches in the yard, per Pickle's request. The boys got so dirty on Saturday (we were doing some mega-yard work) that they had to take baths after lunch. James was a little confused with the timing.

We hit the farmers' market on Saturday; what a treat! Fresh greens and arugula, red radishes, salumi from Underground Butcher, cheese from Edelweiss Creamery and, of course, a honey stick for Rhys. James sat all cool, with his shades on, in the wagon, taking everything in. That kid really cracks me up sometimes.

As for eating, we did it well this weekend. Burgers with caramalized onions and arugula on Saturday; grilled tri-tip on Sunday with baked potatoes and sour cream and fresh chives from our garden. We were all very hungry from the fresh air and sunshine -- everyone ate all of their dinner (with no asking how many bites constitute being "done") and James sat in his highchair the whole time (with no begging to sit on my lap to eat). Needless to say, it was a very good weekend.

Here's what we're eating this week ...
