What's Up Wednesday, April 2020

Hello last Wednesday in April of our new normal! Here's what's been going on in these parts in our efforts to make every day seem not like Groundhog Day!!

, What’s Up Wednesday {12.18.19}

What we're eating this week?

Old tried and true comfort foods mixed in with new recipes, all the while  while trying to get fruits and veggies in and use things in the pantry so we head to the grocery every 10-17 days. 

Monday: Lentil soup with all the veggies in the world and frozen leftover turkey. 
Tuesday: sada roti with fried cabbage and salted cod with tomato
Wednesday: butter chicken with veggies, salad and rice. Cauliflower rice for me. 
Thursday: udon noodles with tofu
Friday: either Finger Food Friday or BBQ

Here are  some of the creations lately.
Sushi bowls for the win.

Shrimp and crab cakes with an asian slaw. (doesn't look that great but oh boy were they great)

Flourless oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. 

Homemade granola.

What I'm reminiscing about
Other springs when things were different...it's warming up more and more though so that's good!

What I'm dreading
I think what we're all dreading... that this disease takes longer than they are anticipating.

What I'm loving
Duolingo.... I'm going old school baby French and really enjoying it. I also really love my quiet mornings with no rush to get everything done....

What I've been up to…
Cleaning/Organising all these little neglected areas in the house. Lots of satisfaction there.

What I'm working on

Homeschooling these critters. They require lots of attention in different ways and some days it is satisfying but others it just saps all of my energy. I'm sick of hearing myself talk. 

Clearly, they love it as much as I do ....

What I'm excited about…
I kinda like this pantry shopping, menu organising, grocery planning  and using lots of different things to create our meals and cater to our household needs. 

What I'm watching/reading…
The Resident, The View, Live with Kelly and Ryan (so refreshing), American Idol and The Masked Singer (with the family) and of course, the news.

What I'm listening to..

Once again, the news... oh and my kids bicker. They will either be best friends or worst enemies at the end of Covid 19. 

What I'm wearing…
No makeup and it is glorious!! All the leggings and tops in the world. 

What I'm doing this weekend…
There will be  baking, wine, food, family, books and TV. D and I started to watch some old rom coms. Last weekend was When Harry Met Sally and Peggy Sue Got Married. 

Also, we've taken to doing a proper Sunday Lunch (Trinidadians would know what I'm talking about) followed by a Bollywood movie just like they would have in tnt when we were growing up. My kids are aghast at the thought of three hour movies in another language. 

What I'm looking forward to next month? 

Warmer temps and my boy's birthday!!!

What else is new?
We opened the pool early this year and it's really nice to look at!

So that's what's been going on.... Hope you have a wonderful day, lovelies.

  1. I love all your dinner options, it's something that we are struggling with to make different dinners and lunches!! I don't think I've ever made a slaw before!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. That sunset picture is lovely! I would like to make sushi bowls. When Harry Met Sally is my favorite movie!

  3. Like you I've been enjoying being creative with our meals, particularly at lunch when sandwiches aren't always an option (low on bread). Have a fun Sunday Lunch, I have no idea what that is but I assume it involves lots of food so I'm in!

  4. Oh, that pool picture is gorgeous! Also, HOW are you only going to the grocery store every 10-17 days??? I'm impressed! We've been going every 7-8 days and that feels like a stretch.

  5. I haven't watched or listened to the news once! I am impressed that you can go so long between grocery trips; it seems like no matter how much I try and stock up we still only make it a week at most between trips. I did just make granola this morning; and I loved how easy it was.


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
