In The Kitchen With Georgia

Yesterday I got some much needed quality time with my sister, niece and nephew. It's rare that I get them to myself, and I was so thankful to Hank for excusing me from bathroom remodel work so that I could spend the afternoon with them.

Georgia went down for a nap when I got there, so I was able to get my baby fix with Blair- giving him a bottle and changing his diaper. My sister and I then headed to the outlet mall (with Blair in tow) to search for mirrors and lighting for the bathroom. (See...I really was doing something to contribute to the project.) The outlet mall was a train wreck, but it was still good to get out, and Blair slept through the entire trip. He really is the best baby ever!

Just call him "Bruiser". Those cheeks!

After an unsuccessful shopping trip, we headed back to the house so that I could help Georgia make her "back to school" lunch, and also a few things that Holly could use in her lunches for the rest of the week. I had pinned a few recipes that I hoped Georgia would eat since she seems to have taken a turn towards being a picky eater these days.

First up were some Zucchini Tots from the always fabulous Skinnytaste page. My hope is that the addition of a little cheddar cheese, and the form of a mini muffin, would make these appealing to G. We'll see. She was a great helper and at least had fun making them with me!

We also cut up some fresh fruit, made some healthy chicken nuggets, and then her favorite- a Hello Kitty sandwich for her back to school lunch. She was bummed that she had to wait to eat it, but it was so cute watching her help make the face. I might not get a ton of time with her, but I felt like yesterday was a good quality day that hopefully she'll remember!
