weekend recap


I'm just going to jump right in here. This thing is spankin' new and I've attempted this before, but I think I might have a handle on it now.

OK, so, Nick (hubby) and I started off the weekend on Friday evening at the lovely Deschutes Brewery while our son spent the night with Granny and Pappa (my parents). We participated in the Google HotPot promotion and got a couple of free pint glasses (which we left at our table, DOH!) and a couple of free brews. We had dinner there with a lovely lady I used to work with and her super husband. We caught a bus home, watched Portlandia and called it a night!

On Saturday, we rented a U-haul and moved some furniture out of my parents' house that they were so kind to haul to Portland for me. It was a lot of hard work, but we're going to have a lovely basement guest room once everything is set up! We were obviously starving after all of that moving so we braved the cold and went to have a delicious dinner at Chipotle. We had trouble getting Teo (the son) to eat his dinner, but he ended up doing a good job!

Today, we stayed home and had potatoes and eggs for breakfast (Nick ate some breakfast sausages). After that, Nick built our little shelves for the pantry while I cleared some space in our bedroom for a giant bookcase that would not clear the stairway into the basement. Teo was busy building with Nick and with his Legos. Once we finished our projects, I made some veggie spaghetti with broccoli and zucchini. Teo had leftover Indian food from Swagat, because he wasn't in the mood for noodles.

In other news:
For the past month or so, we've been getting grocery delivery from Spud! in order to get more veggies in our diets. It's hard to get motivated to go to the store when you're carfree and it's super cold out! It can also be dangerous since we generally only get out for grocery shopping in the evenings and it gets dark pretty early so we're less visible to folks driving cars. We were ordering from Safeway.com for a while and they are pretty good, but their vegetable selection is generally lacking in variety as well as organic options. Since I recently stopped eating meat, having more vegetables in the house has become a bigger priority.
