We had no plans

15 May

Since the last few weeks have been jam packed with plans, we decided this weekend would involve no plans. We made several trips this week to the park because the weather has been so nice. This weekend we did enjoy the bubble machine on the deck, walleye for dinner, a little shopping, a trip to the farmer’s marlet and generally getting things done that we had not done for the last few weekends. 

Walleye you ask? Well, there is this place in Minnesota that you can order it and they deliver overnight packed in dry ice right to your door. I discovered it last year when no place in this area carried Kerry’s favorite lake fish so now it has become a birthday tradition. I usually only like ocean fish but this lake fish is light, tasty and not a bit fishy. Yum. And, we have 2.5 more pounds to enjoy at some point this month. Miss H did not like the fish but at least she tried it.

Her favorite food is pizza.

Second favorite is strawberries.

She managed to eat 8 strawberries before we even left the farmer’s market. They were delicious and it is nice to get locally grown produce.

Like the outfit?

The elephant jacket combined with the fish and cat in the submarine pajamas looks even better in person. Oh well, she is expressing her creativity.

We learned a new term at her gymnastics class this weekend-dress-ling. It is what happens when you are trying to get your toddler dressed and it becomes more like a wrestling match. It was nice to know that we are not the only ones who experience this phenomenon and we were not the only ones with a creatively dressed child.

Hope everyone had a nice weekend!

Walleye in the house

19 Jun

walleyeThere is an ongoing debate in our house about what is better- ocean fish or lake fish. I am the fan of ocean fish and Kerry always talks about lake fish. His lake fish of choice is Walleye. He has vivid memories of being at his grandparents cabin in Minnesota and eating freshly caught Walleye. I have heard him reference this several times over the last several years so finally I decided to try and find some. There is none to be had in the DC area and after searching Baltimore and Annapolis too- I discovered Walleye Direct. They deliver straight from Minesota to your doorstep and ours arrived fresh today in a cooler. Now, Kerry have even more distinct memories of the way his grandmother cooked the Walleye and how great it tasted. His memories end at how exactly she did this. He knows she dipped it into flour but that is the extent of the instructions I received. After looking at several recipes, we decided on the simple flour, salt and pepper version and this ocean fish fan must agree with Kerry- it was delicious. Luckily, after eating two big fillets, we have four more fillets tucked into our freezer.

To update a post from earlier this week- Hadley definitely is getting some teeth. Besides the very distinct white spots, she is drooling constantly, tugging on her mouth and will chew on anything. Fun times. Otherwise, she is doing great and getting bigger everyday. She is finally in the clothes that correspond with her age. Here she is modeling her very cute duck pajamas:

Of course, have to include other cute pictures.
