We had some REAL snow last week, so big that we had to stay home for two days… which means more time to spend with my lovely girl~~~ Got to make her some more breast milk pancakes! 😉
we made her behave silly~~~
laughs all day long! She’s in such a fun age to play with! 🙂 I LOVE IT!!!
Made pancakes for my too: pumpkin buckwheat pancakes with PB sauce. So yummy and filling.
Sofia had a smaller portion of this for lunch: roasted zucchini, roasted butternut squash, sautéed greens and brown-black rice.
for dinner, I made stuffed butternut squash with corn and cheese. Soooo good!
An old favorite is back: vegetarian wonton, one of my favorite dish made by mom
On Friday… I left for a business trip. It was hard to leave Sofia this time because it means we’re done with nursing 😥 My whole flight to Nicaragua I was really sad. I wish I could nurse her for longer. I wish it was her deciding the end. Oh… well… the hormones are making me sad again! (excuse). Anyway… despite the sadness… I managed to almost finish this meal
I don’t eat steak regularly (almost never) but when i go to Nicaragua, or on my way there, I do eat it because it’s so worth it!
On Friday night, we went to Churrasquito, a steak place close to the hotel with the best steak I’ve ever had. Two steak in one-day? who am I?
Another great thing about Nicaragua is its fruit selection. It’s a tropical country so fruit is delicious all-year-long. I specially like the papaya and this fruit (upper left) that looks and tastes like sweet potato, too sweet to believe it’s just a fruit. I had 2 plates of this to start the breakfast
followed by a veggie-omelette, avocado and some toasts with some exotic jam
we had a whole day event which turned out really interesting and fun, at night we had the Christmas party at our boss’s. Each of us had to bring a gift (<$10) and we played the white elephant gift exchange. It was a lot fun!!! I got the gift that I wanted after learning quickly the trick. It’s a great game for holidays parties… will use it soon.
dinner was Cuba style roast pork, rice with bean, yuca and salad.
it takes 8 hours to prepare the pork. I am not a big pork fan so I just took a bite. But according to others, it was super delicious. I did really like the rice-bean dish and yuca.
we had dinner by the pool…. what a luxury
I returned to the hotel almost midnight and had to get up before 6 am to catch a plane. I was exhausted. Breakfast was kind of lame but when hungry, you eat whatever it’s in front. I had the egg dish and crunch.
Although it was a short trip, I missed Sofia a lot! Fortunately she did very well at home with grandma. She ate well thanks to the detailed menu I left for her; she took two naps daily without much fuss and go to sleep at night without nursing. It’s a relief to know she doesn’t need nursing to sleep at night. For almost 15 months, we had a unique bond that nobody can replace my role and it makes me sad that that is gone. Although that’s gone, I’m sure we still have a strong unique bond that will last much longer. Well, at least that’s what I want to believe and hope.
