this weekend was so fun. i drove down to meet my sisters for a manicure/pedicure. afterwards we picked up one of my brothers and went to a friend's 30th birthday party. it was at a restaurant where they had rented out a room. it was so nice to be out without the kids. i think my sisters and i were the only sober ones at the party. we all had a long drive home, and didn't want to drink before driving. i got home at one am. man is has been a long time since i have been out that late. i had so much energy when i got home.
on sunday my sister christina came over to make vegetable and fruit purees with me. i was so excited to make the purees. we got this new cookbook that is full of recipes that use the purees to sneak vegetables into your kid's dinners. i don't really have the problem of my kids not eating vegetables yet. mason is only 2 and he loves eating fruit and vegetables. however, my sister's daughter is 6 and will not eat any fruits or vegetables. this plan is a great idea for her. i just thought it would be fun and who couldn't use some more vegetables in their diet? it took us much longer to make the purees than we thought it would. we made spinach, cauliflower, pineapple, and chicken. we also were going to make sweet potatoes and butternut squash but we found them already pureed in a can. we were lazy so we just bought the cans. tomorrow i am meeting her again to hang out. we are going to make one of the recipes and try out our new purees. how fun.
