Meet the Sullivans: Menu Monday + Mommy and Me

Menu Monday + Mommy and Me

I'm trying to keep our menu pretty simple this week. I hurt my ankle somehow on a run over the weekend, so I'm much less mobile right now, and Owen is usually pretty needy at the five o'clock hour--dinner needs to be simple, with little to no prep work.

I bought the newest of Ina Garten's cookbooks last week. Everything in the book looks so great! Lobster Mac and Cheese? Chocolate Chunk Blondies? Truffled Mashed Potatoes? Yum! I love that Ina keeps the ingredients simple and to a minimum.

Keith's mom, our niece Natalie and I took Owen to CuriOdyssey, a science and wildlife center, on Saturday. Despite what his expression in the picture conveys Owen had a blast! He loved seeing the animals, especially the bobcats when they were being fed. We have a membership now, so I see a lot of trips there in store for us this summer!
