Grrrr…

So, evidentially last nights post titled Zoo or not did not fully upload for some reason 😦  So frustrating!

I’ll give you the gist of it.  We planned a trip to the zoo with some friends but when we got there, discovered Monday’s are a day of rest for the animals.  Luckily there is a park right next to it that had a nice play area and good shady spot for lunch.

The love nugget looks very serious in this picture but he had a great time playing and hanging out with his friends.

I’m extremely ready for the crawling stage to be over though.  Everything that gets stuck to his hands goes directly in his mouth, dirt, twigs, sand… yuck!

Last night for dinner I made one of my favorite healthy meals.  I’ve been obsessed with sugar snap peas lately and bought a huge bag from Costco the other day.  It’s seriously over halfway gone already.  I love this Chicken Scallopini recipe that calls for sugar snap peas so instead of making Chicken parmesan, I made this.

Chicken Scallopini

2 organic chicken breasts pounded flat

1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth

1/4 cup dry white wine

1-2 cups sugar snap peas cut in half

1-2 cups asparagus diced bite size

2 tbsp lemon

1 tbsp olive oil

1 1/2 tbsp fresh mint

salt and pepper

In a small mixing bowl whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, mint, salt and pepper.  Set aside.  Steam cut sugar snap peas and diced asparagus just until tender.  Drain and run under cold water to stop the cooking process.  Add to the bowl of lemon juice mixture and place in the refrigerator to chill.  Spray a non stick  pan with cooking spray and heat over medium.  Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper and cook in pan until no longer pink inside.  Add in broth and wine and simmer until reduced by half.  Place chicken on your plate and top with sugar snap pea/asparagus mixture as well as some of the lemon mixture.  Enjoy!

This meal is so healthy and refreshing.  We enjoyed it with a salad of mixed greens, tomatoes, goat cheese, sunflower seeds, shredded carrots and miso dressing.

Today we had a very busy, fun morning!  Headed to Stroller Strides at the Whole Foods shopping center and got in a great workout.  Then did a little shopping until it was time to meet some friends for free train rides and lunch.

I think with how often we ride the train the love nugget might be obsessed soon!  He is really starting to love it more though and watches it very intently as it goes around the circle.

We eat at Whole Foods a lot because it’s so fresh and healthy.  Plus I can get a box of food from the salad bar just for the love nugget.  He will sit there and eat away forever!

After lunch we did a little grocery shopping then finally headed home.  The love nugget was exhausted from his morning excursion and has been out cold  since we got in the car 🙂

Oops!  Spoke to soon, he just woke up.

Have a good evening everyone!
