Ahh a relaxing weekend with the right amount of time spent out and about and chilling at home. Friday night we had sushi and chicken teriyaki from Sushi Sono. Maya has been going to be a little later lately (7:30pm rather than the 6:30-7pm that had been her bedtime for months) so now we’ve started having dinner as a family before putting her down to sleep. Maya loved the chicken and rice along with some broccoli and oranges. We loved the salmon avocado roll and a chef’s special roll with tempura shrimp, Japanese squash, spicy tuna and tempura flakes.
Saturday morning the whole fam headed to Wegmans for breakfast, coffee and grocery shopping. If you’re going to Wegmans, you gotta go early – the place turns into a zoo later in the day on weekends. The store was already much more crowded by the time we wrapped up. We got our shopping for the week and Maya picked out a book with a lion on the cover…her favorite word right now is “Yion!!”
Once we were back home, Maya went down for a nap and I set to work making nachos. We had friends over around noon to watch the Maryland basketball game and munched on nachos with all the fixings – cheese, salsa, sour cream, corn, black beans, tomatoes, onion, shredded lettuce, and avocado + ground turkey taco meat. The game was awful, but the nachos were delicious and Maya was very entertaining. After Maryland lost and our guests left, we took Maya for a walk around the neighborhood stopping to point out airplanes and to keep her from picking up sticks and putting them in her mouth.
Saturday night, Bubby came over to babysit and Adam and I went to Alma Cocina Latina for date night. We had a fabulous time and I’ll recap our meal in a post later this week! There’s a sneak peak of the tuna and salmon tartare that tasted so fresh and incredible.
Sunday morning started with an early, rainy run followed by a much needed shower. Once Maya was up we had eggs and hash browns for breakfast before settling in for an episode of Sesame Street. During Maya’s morning nap, I meal prepped for the week by cooking up a big batch of chicken thighs and chopping onion, cabbage and portobello mushrooms. For lunch I had a chicken salad platter and a iced vanilla latte from Mad City.
Our big plan for Sunday afternoon was a trip to Costco to get a membership. After reading a lengthy discussion in one of the mom facebook groups I am in, it seemed like the general consensus was that if you have enough storage space to stock up on cleaning supplies and non-perishables, then Costco was worth it. Since our new house has a great bit of storage in the laundry room, we decided it was worth it to fully live our best suburban life and become members. Of course Costco was packed but we manage to navigate the huge store and grab a few before heading back home. Anyone have tips on best things to buy at Costco?
Maya looks so tiny in the giant cart!
