cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄
tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼
for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!
safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you...
weekend mornings are the best. there’s no rushing out for school, no frantic scrambling to get everyone fed, dressed and out the door. 🙏🏼 no tears. coffee that doesn’t go cold before I get to finish it ☕️and most importantly, snuggles with all FOUR of my babies. these are the moments that I wait all week for 👶🏻👶🏻👦🏻👧🏻 happy saturday!...
as someone who doesn't eat turkey or ham or any of the traditional holiday mains (I'm all about those 7 fishes on Christmas Eve though 🐟), I'm alllll about the sides. I fill up my plate with sides, so when Thanksgiving and Christmas come around, there are a few that I like to make 🍽️:
~ Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Maple Cashew Cream and Walnuts (🦃)
~ Apple and Farro Salad with Roasted Brussels Sprouts (🦃)
~ Roasted Parmesan Broccoli with Pomegranates and Walnuts (🎄)
~ Little Gem Pear Salad with Walnut Vinaigrette (🎄)
what is one side dish you can't live without during the holidays? 👇🏼 👇🏼 #thanksgivingmenu #thanksgivingrecipes...
rio and sol are 10 weeks old today! 👶🏻👶🏻 10 weeks! 2.5 months! let's chat. 🙏🏼
rio is much like luca. he loves to be held and needs more touch or movement to fall back asleep. he loves to stare at things in a serious way, especially high-contrast art for babies, so I love reading him books while I hold him (he's the best snuggler.)
sol is my chill boy. he's a good sleeper. he smiles and loves to talk. he's squealing and making his goo-goo-ga-ga sounds all the time, I love chatting with him. he's a bit more like roma as a baby, a bit more independent. he makes the funniest faces and serves up the grimaces like luca used to.
what's funny about twins is that just when you think you know their personality differences, they change - they'll swap. 🤷🏻♀️ and to tell them physically apart, there are two key differences:
⏺ rio has a wider head and sol has a more narrow, round forehead
⏺ rio weighs a full pound more than sol
and yes, I have mixed them up a few times! I've been carrying one around, talking to them by name, and then all of a sudden, when I go to pick the other one up, I realize I mixed them up! 😱when they're not together or you're not looking at them straight on, it can be confusing! one of my favorite games is texting my family photos of them and saying, "who's who?!" they get it right 50% of the time, ha!
so far, having twins is just so cool. it's so cool that there are two of them and they are identical! every week that goes by, their personalities shine and I am having so much fun getting to know them - and getting twice the cuddles. and yes, they do sometimes cry at the same exact time, but you just have to pause, gather yourself, and get your soothing game on. 💪🏼
I have to say, while having newborn twins and 2 other older kids at the same time has its challenges, I give a LOT of credit to those who have twins as their first baby experience - I can't imagine going into this not knowing what I already knew about raising babies. talk about overwhelming! 🤯 all moms are crushing it, but especially those first time moms with multiples - woop! bless you. 👏🏼 #identicaltwinboys #identicaltwins #monoditwins #twinmom #twinboys...
