Weekend Recap

Hi guys, thanks for visiting this little blog here today, it is always such a pleasure to see you!  This past weekend was the first one in a while where we didn’t have much planned, and I definitely took advantage and enjoyed some down time.

I feel it worth mentioning that I did some serious Trader Joe’s shopping Friday evening.  This is worth mentioning both because I did a lot of recipe testing and meal prepping this weekend and have some yummy recipes coming up for you over the next couple of weeks. Also, because it was so easy and quick to go shopping on Friday night!  I usually do my weekly shopping on Saturday or Sunday afternoon and it is always a madhouse, but on Friday evening it was pretty quiet.

Friday evening and Saturday were pretty quiet.  I did a little picking up and reading after the kids went to bed, but was in bed pretty early myself on Friday.  Then on Saturday I taught a class and took my car in for an oil change.  The hubs and kids were nice enough to pick me up so I would not have to wait, and we were off for some family errand time to Costco.

After picking up my car, the rest of the day was spent cooking, cleaning, running errands and catching up on life.  I was super excited to find this little outfit for my baby girl on sale for over 60% off!  I had been eyeballing it for the last two months but thought it was a little expensive for an outfit that will likely end up stained, so I was stoked to see it on sale.  If you are looking, Target has had some great kid’s clothes sales for back to school.

Sunday was a bit more eventful.  We were up early and had a nice family breakfast.  I made baked eggs in spicy marinara for the hubs and me.

For the babies, I made banana split yogurt parfaits.  I was so sure they would love them, but neither of them was remotely interested.  I thought they were pretty cute and tasty though.

After breakfast, we were off to the zoo.  There were a lot of animals out early, and it was so fun to hear both the kids rattling off all the different types of animals they saw and waving hi to them.


After the Zoo, we hit up the farmers market and I enjoyed a green corn tamale that I inhaled way too fast to get a picture of.  The rest of the day was spent hanging out and doing little things around the house.  I also caught an evening yoga class, which was very much needed.

What did you do this weekend?  Any favorite at home brunch ideas?  I love getting creative with breakfast on the weekends.  Hope you have a great day!

  1. I love love love Trader Joe’s too! I can’t wait to see what other recipes you came up with!! All of these look incredibly delicious. My little guys love parfaits too. Well, I do too for that matter. No lazy weekend for us — my youngest turn 3 so we were busy. But we enjoyed some good food too!

  2. I need to make those eggs!! They look delish!
    I’ve been great at planning dinners lately but my breakfast game has been slacking – I’m heading to the store today to pick up ingredients for a few overnight oats recipes…
    For brunch – have you tried a frittata? Or a french toast bake??

  3. That egg dish looks amazing! We always make a veggie egg scramble and hashbrowns on Saturday mornings.

  4. Always enjoy your blog and pics. The eggs look amazing as do the parfaits. As you know, I am in Scotland. Eating wonderful food that my friend cooks and fortified with gin and tonic or wine. Desserts are called pudding but aren’t and I love desserts. See you at book club.
