This weekend was very low-key. We pretty much just hung around the house with my family and relaxed. Well I relaxed. My mom helped us with some cleaning and laundry since I am super limited with my injury and my dad helped Marc with some house projects. So I guess it was a productive weekend.
We even snuck in a walk at Bruce Park
and Cooper had a doggie play-date
I enjoyed a lot of play time with Ava this weekend. She has been all smiles and laughs which is so much fun. She really loves looking at her stuffed animal toys and playing on her play mats!
With the Superbowl yesterday, we did a fair amount of cooking! We made BBQ chicken sliders, baked wings, stuffed mushrooms, guacamole, dip, etc. My favorite appetizer was the Spinach and artichoke dip. I am always a huge fan of this dip, and I like it even more because it is loaded with veggies! The secret ingredient is GREEK YOGURT which helps reduce some of the fat content. I enjoyed this dip with some whole grain crackers, YUM!
