corn on the cob

Progress and Our Weekend

Lots of progress has been happening over here at the Zottola Zoo. First of all, Sadie has been doing well with eating different foods. I saw corn on the cob at the grocery store for the first time since last summer, so we made some together!

This picture reminded me of when she was seven months old and was super interested in corn on the cob. A girl after my corn-loving heart!

Also, she ate turkey last night. For a child who is basically a vegetarian, that was huge progress!! She has her follow-up appointment with the gastroenterologist today šŸ™ (more…)

Happy Monday! Today was my first day back to school post-spring break. Bummer. The good news is that I’m halfway through the semester. Huzzah!

Here are someĀ vacation eats:

dinnerRoom service! Veggie skewers with pita chips and black bean hummus, and an Asian chicken salad with ginger dressing. The best part of this dinner was definitely the pita chips + hummus.

eatinginbedI had to include this one… my mom ate her room service meal sitting cross legged in her bed like a little kid. Too funny.

postcardinnDinner from PCI Bar & Grill. I got collard greens, corn on the cob, and herb roasted chicken. I loved that my drink came in a mason jar. Very cute.
