Friday Favourites

Linking up with AndreaErika and Narci for Friday Favourites.

I saw Beauty and the Beast on Monday and I thought it was fabulous.  The animated version is my all time favourite Disney movie and I thought this stayed true to the original but gave us so much more - more songs, more storyline, more character development. I can't wait to see it again!  This was my date for the show.  We haven't been to the movie for a few weeks so I wasn't sure how he would do, but he fell asleep and then sat quietly on my lap. 

I dug out our Baby Bullet that we had used to make E's baby food.  I whipped up some food for Q this week and I was reminded about how easy it is to make my own food.  You can use any blender really, but I do like the little storage containers that come with it.  

I made this risotto for supper on Wednesday and it was so tasty.  I make risotto fairly often and this was pretty close to my usual recipe, but this one had added wine and butter, and I will be incorporating these ingredients into my regular recipe since they really take it to the next level. 

This little guy is getting more active. He likes rolling around and being on his stomach.  I'm sure crawling is just around the corner.  

On Wednesday I posted about my favourite spring piece being my Cole Haan flats.  On that same day I wore them downtown and walked around quite a bit and they did not hurt my feet. 

We have been working with E on his reading, and although it can be very frustrating challenging, he is getting the hang of it.  In his class the students are encouraged to read a story to the class (in English or French) and he is bringing Meet Tracker (a Paw Patrol book) to read.  He read it to us earlier this week and he did really well.  He may be memorizing some of it, but eventually it will all come together. 

For those fans of the Serial podcast who have not checked out the new podcast S-Town yet, get on it! It's pretty good!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you all have good weather for the weekend.
