Fri-yay favourites

Happy Friday, all! Here are a few bits of happy around here on this beautiful May day!

1- On Thursdays, more often than not, we bake a little healthy muffin/bread breakfast for Friday and Saturday. It's a nice, somewhat controlled sweet treat to end the week. This week, we did zucchini chocolate chip muffins.

2- The kids tried a new pediatric dentist this week.  Why didn't they have these facilities around when I was a kid?

3- Has anyone tried cashew cream instead of regular cream? In my quest to reduce just a bit of dairy/saturated fats from our lives, I made it and it is awesome! Used it in a garlicky mushroom, kale, leek medley and also as a cream for butternut squash soup. It was SO yum!!

4-This kid has the best facial expressions. If this doesn't warrant the #nomnom, I don't know what does. 

5- And to all the mamas out there, have a wonderful Mother's Day. To my sweet mom, thank you for all you do and are to us. Your loyal heart, forgiving nature and patient spirit are truly one in a million. I also would like to specially thank you for my low blood pressure and late greying genes. Love you lots!!

Happy Mother's Day weekending, dolls!!
