The last time I had an afternoon to myself was in June. Not one since baby girl was born. While I love her more than comprehension, it is also time to reclaim a bit of self.
An afternoon! What a treat!

Baby girl fell asleep in her car seat, and rather than wake her, I waited with her in the cold for 45 minutes. I didn't have a sketch pad, cell phone, or book so I had to improvise with some scrap paper.
This is the end of my street. That is a SUV; the snow is piled higher than its roof!

So. much. snow. in Boston.
89.2 inches this season. Over 7 feet!
The only way to deal when you have a curious, but non-crawling, baby is to spend lots of time in the kitchen. Hibernate and eat!
Baby food recipes call for small increments of food, so it makes sense to also make a grownup version, such as this lentil soup.
Both had lentils, butternut squash, carrots, celery, and onion, but the adult version also had vegetable broth, garlic, and salt. Serve with sour cream and cilantro. (Or blend if you're a baby).

It has been so busy around here with a baby (4 months old today!), Smokey, returning to work next week, and Dave's back surgery. There is a lot on my plate.
To simplify meals, I try to multitask. Like when I made this spinach basil pesto with roasted veggies last night, I took advantage of a hot oven and roasted some sweet potatoes. This morning they were fried up with onions and garlic to make a sweet potato hash.
