Weekend with Friends and Family over Eggs, Steaks and Baleadas

We had a great weekend with family and friends.


Saturday morning I went out for breakfast with a friend and brought little K along. We went to Milestones in the mall. I’ve never been there for breakfast. It was really nice and  the portions were HUGE . Little K’s kids menu of Bacon and Eggs was really the size for adults.


Breakfast with the ladies. 

I spent the rest of the day with my little man, shopping and gathering last minute things for our trip.


New sun hats!



Saturday night we went out for dinner with some friends. Steak and Wine!

I guess you can say I’m beginning to be picky with my steak. We go out for steak dinners often, and I like to try different types. Saturday I had the New York Steak (for the first time) The others got Rib eye steak and bone in Rib eye. I think the Bone in rib eye was the best one I tasted.


The appetizers were delicious too. Calamari, Fries, Sautéed mushrooms, Sugar snap peas. Yum!


A great evening with friends! 

Sunday morning I had to go into work for  couple hours.

zzzz I left the Mr and little K sleeping all snuggled in, while I left the house on a cold dark Sunday morning ha!


They woke up when I got home haha, they didn’t miss me at all.


I got home, got everyone ready, and we headed out to have Brunch at my inlaws.  


Honduran Breakfast, Baleadas!


Soooo good!


Flour Tortillas, Refried beans, Eggs, Avocado, Cheese, YUM!


I can’t wait for my new kitchen! I have a list of Italian and Honduran recipes that I want to perfect.


Growing up we always had Big family lunches on Sunday’s. My mom would make lasagna.


The Mr grew up with Baleadas for weekend breakfasts. These are 2 recipes that have priority, but we have a list of Italian and Honduran recipes we want to pass on to our children. :)



Although I must say, life is VERY different now than it was when I grew up. We are always on the go and out and about, I rarely have weekends home where I can spend hours making a delicious meal. I can tell you that I am NOT one to spend hours in the kitchen cooking (I enjoy cooking, just not for hours ha) . So that’s why we came up with a menu of dishes we love from growing up and those are the dishes we will focus on to pass on to our kids. Only a few of them are ones that take a lot of time.  That I can do! I can’t wait to get our new home and set new traditions for our kid(s)! 

Hope you all have a great Monday! 

We have snow!!!

Yummy seafood pasta!

This afternoon a friend and I with our little boys went out to lunch. We went to one of our favorite Italian restaurants.
We had delicious fried calamari and seafood pasta. Soo good! Not exactly sure how to log these calories in my fitnesspal, hmm! Let's make today a bonus day.

After lunch we went to the mall to shop a bit. A walk after our meal was definitely needed. I was soo surprised how long baby K slept for. I was worried he was going to wake up and cry during lunch hahaa!

He is changing sooo much! I love it! It was a perfect Wednesday. Now we have ribs in the slowcooker for dinner!

Hope you had a great Wednesday!!
