Today was the first time we picked up our items from our CSA group. We got a baguette, some tofu, hydroponic tomatoes, a whole chicken and a ton of eggs….salsa and rosemary were two other choices, but we already had lots of both at home. you can swap out items you don’t like or don’t want for double the amount of other items if you choose. so that’s why i wound up with a ton of eggs. i made egg salad and tuna salad (i put hard boiled eggs in my tuna salad, too) to start….and we’ll have eggs for breakfast tomorrow, too. We’ll use the tofu in some stir-fry later this week, and the rest is pretty easy, too. we got a list of what we’ll get next week but i haven’t really looked at it yet. the girls were being monsters when we were picking everything up. SO BAD.
Dan and I were going to see a movie tonight, but he’s on call and just left to do a gall bladder. I canceled our sitter and am currently watching my kids fight over blankies and stuffed animals. Just how I love spending a Saturday night! Honestly I wasn’t feeling like going out anyway, so it’s for the best.
Monday is Maren and Mackenna’s 2nd birthday party (another set of twins we’re friends with), so we’re heading over there in the afternoon to celebrate. Dan’s golfing in a tournament that morning….and that’s what our holiday weekend looks like….
Maybe this will entertain you. Going to detail an actual dialogue going on right about now.
Abby: “It’s MINE.”
Izzy: “No, Abby, it’s MINE. MY NEMO.”
Abby comes over to where I’m sitting and says, “Abby sit this chair. Abby sit this chair. GET UP, MOMMY. GET UP, MOMMMMMMY!”
me: “No, Abby, Mommy is not going to get up. This is Mommy’s chair.”
Abby: “No, this ABBY’s chair.” stomping off furiously.
Izzy: “Swiper A Box, Mommy,” Izzy says. (This would actually be Swiper the Fox from Dora)
Izzy now has some of their toy/play cooking utensils and is stirring furiously. “Blueberries in there. Blue spoon. Big spoon.” Takes pretend bite, “Eat Izzy’s oatmeal with spoon.”
Abby: “Izzy, MY DINNER. It’s MY dinner, Mommy!” Abby screams.
Abby is now throwing all of their play food/utensils onto the floor.
Izzy’s handing me the spoon. “Bite, Mommy? This tastes good. MmMmmM.” smacking noises.
“Here Mommy,” Izzy hands me the bowl. “Izzy needs more,” and takes it back.
Incidentally, Izzy is wearing slippers. One of hers and one of Abby’s. One is a Nemo, the other is a duck. Funny to watch her walking around in her jammies and slippers. Abby is fortunately not a slipper fan since Izzy’s swiped one of her slippers. She has just in the last 48 hours started placing her hands on her hips, which is REALLY funny.
ok, must dash. have a good night!
