Good Eats and Easter Treats

Posted Apr 01 2013 7:06am

This was the first weekend it finally felt like spring. Translation: I could wear shorts (!) and my head was stuffed up from allergies. Totally worth it to be able to spend time outside! It’s good for all of us, especially Koda.

I take full blame that Koda hasn’t gotten as much exercise as she deserves lately, so I’m really focusing on fixing it.

Friday I took Hailey and Koda hiking. I walked through the woods singing my ABCs all loud and proud. I think it kept the bears (and all other hikers) away.


On the way home we swung by Josh’s Farmers market to grab dinner. I was so excited for my favorite sign of spring (farmers markets!) that I splurged on fresh scallops.

I baked them in a muffin tin so each scallop had its own sauce bath. White wine, garlic, butter, salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon.

It was quite the Friday night feast!

Saturday we attended our neighborhood egg hunt. Last year Hailey sat on David’s shoulders and watched; this year, she got into it!

I had so much fun playing with her that I didn’t get a chance to catch up with friends as much as I hoped.

But it was just way too much fun watching Hailey hunt eggs and fill up her basket.

She hasn’t stopped playing with them yet.

The only downside? The return of the creepy Easter bunny!

No worries, we swooped in to rescue her.

It was such a beautiful day that we decided to skip the jelly beans and instead treat ourselves to a new bike seat.

Despite her somber face in the picture, Hailey loved it! So did Koda. I rode my bike while holding Koda’s leash and together we biked 5 miles.

It was a perfect family weekend. A lot of fun, a little exercise and really good food. I only used half the scallops Friday night, so last night we finished them up.

Gina’s lemony tomato herb scallops were AMAZING. I used fresh rosemary and dried basil and the dish was bursting with flavor. David absolutely loved it and I put it on my must-repeat list. The best part? It’s relatively simple. I highly suggest you try it!

What is the best thing you ate this weekend?

How many of y’all would answer Cadbury Egg? Winking smile
