Baby Fix

by Meghann on June 9, 2011

Babies are addicting. Once you hold one you have to keep going back for more.

Derek and I got our ‘Marley fix’ this evening. We spent two hours taking turns holding her and soothing her with her little binky. Derek even helped change a diaper for the first time! Well… helping may be a stretch, but he did watch someone change a diaper for the first time. Baby steps. ๐Ÿ™‚

Before our baby fix, I made a simple meal utilizing our oven and stove at home.

The AC is still holding strong with the temporary fix from last night, so I’m rolling with it for now. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I even braved turning the oven on to roast some potatoes.

Bags of potatoes were BOGO last week at Publix, which is why you’ve seen me enjoying potatoes every night and will be continuing to do so until we work our way through the double bags. Gotta love potatoes!

While the potatoes were in the oven I sauteed zucchini, yellow squash, and onion on the stovetop with a little italian seasoning.

Last – but not least – the plate rounded out with shrimp that had marinated in the Fil-Fil Lemon Herb Marinade then sauteed on the stovetop.

The meal was simple, but very delicious. It doesn’t have to be fancy to be good. ๐Ÿ™‚

Dessert was courtesy of Miss Monica and her knowledge of my love for all things Trader Joes.

The peanut brittle was extra sweet and crispy. Four pieces of plenty to please any sweet tooth.

Dear Trader Joes, Please build a store in Florida. <3 Meghann!

I actually have a brother that lives by one now (oh, by the way – my twin bro made it to LA safely after spending 2 weeks in Argentina and a week driving cross country with my Dad) maybe he’ll send me something good!

Or I could go visit him! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Must visit my brother in LA soon!

Light Lunch

June 9, 2011

My decadent egg sandwich from breakfast had me feeling stuffed and satisfied all morning. I rarely eat egg sandwiches for breakfast because I rarely crave them, but when I do I’m always happy with how long they stay with me. ๐Ÿ™‚ By the time lunch time came and went I wasn’t really hungry for much. more ยป

Early Morning Friends

Hip – Hip – Hooray! Hip-Hip-Hooray!!
