Things have still been just as crazy around here. I will say that we are making moves in the right direction though. I can get the boys to take a 2ish hour nap at the same time in the afternoon so at least I have some time to get things done. I usually choose that time to workout because it is the only time in the day I get to do anything for me. It helps to give me a little boost since afternoons tend to be the hardest with the boys. I have been doing Peloton spin classes using the phone app and then I will do some ab exercises to try to strength my core so I can run again!
We have been spending some time at the lake. I have gone solo a couple of times but it is a lot trying to wrangle two little boys by myself.
I made dinner for friends who had a scary hospital visit with their little one. Not pictured is a bunch of grilled chicken using the THE BEST marinade. This is hands down my favorite way to make grilled chicken. I marinade overnight and it tastes amazing! And J said this mac and cheese was the best he has ever had!
Since I have a baby strapped to me basically at all times, I invested in a new baby wrap called the Maya wrap just to give my back a break from the same wrap position. It is a great ring wrap with a padded shoulder and little pocket for your phone!
K has been very helpful with L. He will cover him with a blanket or try and put the pacifier in his mouth if he is crying.
I surprisingly have been making a lot of new meals. With it being so hot we have been inside a lot. And since I am baby wearing all the time I can’t sit down so I might as well cook! I forgot take pictures of all the meals (probably because I don’t get to eat them until 5 hours later…) but this was the greatest grilled chicken marinade.
I made a ground turkey bake which I had with a side of rice which was really good. I browned the ground turkey and then added spinach, an onion, cream of mushroom soup, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt + pepper. I topped it with mozzarella cheese and feta cheese and then baked it in the oven until the cheese was bubbly. I topped it with more feta for good measure.
I also made greek chicken and rice in the instant pot. Not bad… but kind of had that “slow cooker everything tastes the same” kind of thing that I am not a huge fan of.
Last night I made a mushroom and onion salisbury steak which was AMAZING. That was my first time making or even eating salisbury steak.
Not bad eats for having a super fussy newborn!
We have been going on some walks again and I usually let K run around the school near us for a change of scenery. The poor kid is doing so well with me having my hands full. He is still our happy little boy!
L is 6 weeks on Sunday so fingers crossed we start getting some sleep around here!
happy weekend ♥️
