Basket O' Goodness

So I registered for a gift basket the other day at Byerly's grocery store and low and behold, I won! The kids and I went to pick it up today and it is huge! It's very cool. It's all organic products as they were promoting Earth Day. There is a little of everything in it...cereal, cookies, rice, pasta, pasta sauce, coffee, pancake mix, toothpaste, soap, snack bars, mouthwash, soup...the list goes on and on. We had lots of fun opening it up and checking everything out.

Salad Recipe

I tried a new recipe for dinner tonight. It turned out well, very colorful and "springy", so I thought I'd share.

Crab Salad:
Rinse 1 cup frozen corn kernels in a colander under cold water until thawed; drain and blot well.
Toss with 1/2 - 1 seeded and chopped red bell pepper (depending on your taste)
2 thinly sliced scallions
6 ounces crab meat
1 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
salt and pepper to taste
Serve chilled.

We enjoyed another beautiful spring night tonight. The bubble machine was going full force and the swings got a workout!

Aidyn's friend Julia came over to play this morning. As you can see, they had a fun time!

Nolan's 1st Haircut!

Nolan got his haircut for the 1st time yesterday. He did a great job and sat like such a good boy! I was actually more worried about me than I was about him, but I didn't cry. He looks like such a big boy now!
