A Weekend of Family and Food

Darwin's Uncle Jordan, his Aunt Mao, and his cousins Luna and Sola drove all the way from Brooklyn to visit and celebrate Darwin's second birthday with us. I had fun putting together simple snacks for the road-weary travelers.
carrots, celery, radishes and hummus; baked whole wheat pita chips; green grapes; air-popped popcorn with extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt, and nutritional yeast; clementines

The cousins played busily.

In the morning, I made breakfast for the three kiddos (only two shown). Everyone ate their broccoli.

Luna read Dr. Suess' tongue twisters for a rapt audience.

Birthday pictures and a recipe for Darwin's unbelievably tasty birthday pie coming soon!


  1. Can you post the hummus recipe?

    PS: I <3 your blog and look forward to the new plates you post. ;)

    1. Mama J, I confess, this hummus is store-bought! I do make my own hummus, and I'll do a post about it someday. I'd like to hit on a really excellent recipe first.

      Thank you for reading. :)
