We had Little Miss Princess’s “six” month doctor’s visit today. During the last visit, she hadn’t gained as much as the doctor would’ve liked so she upped her calorie intake per each serving. Since the last visit, she’s gained 1 lb 1 oz, bringing her to a current grand total of 10 lbs 1-1/ . We are super excited for her to be catching up to where she should be in her age range.
She’s doing great, and I definitely think she’s a keeper. We had some pictures taken last weekend, here is a sampling.
Tuesday’s and Thursday’s are when Mrs. BroJo gets to talk with her kids on the phone. It doesn’t always work out for the best, but today ended up being a good day for phone calls. She was able to speak with all four of her kids, for a longer than usual amount of time tonight.
In between phone calls and Supergirl on Netflix, Mrs. BroJo prepared a kick-butt dinner, stuffed Acorn Squash. (See the Featured Image)
If you would like to try out our dinner, scoop up these ingredients…
- 1 large acorn squash
- 1 pound of ground turkey
- 1 package of Seeds of Change – Quinoa & Brown Rice (w/ garlic)
- 2 cups of chopped Kale
- Olive Oil
- Pink Himalayan Salt to taste
- Garlic Powder to taste
- Cayenne Pepper to taste
- Two cloves of garlic
- 1 Table Spoon Butter
- Avocado Oil
And then do this to them…
Cut the acorn squash in half, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and cayenne pepper, and place a clove of garlic in each half. Place face up in deep, glass dish, bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes.
In the meantime, brown the ground turkey. After you’ve browned the turkey, mix in the package of Quinoa & Brown Rice, chopped Kale, Butter, season to taste (salt, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, whatever else you may like), and add avocado oil to bring moisture up as needed. (The Ground Turkey we get is extremely fat-free)
Let the meat mixture sauté for about 15 minutes, or until your squash is ready. Remove the squash from the oven and let sit for a few minutes. Place one-half each on individual plates, and scoop meat mixture on top. Enjoy!
So, now we’re trying to get Little Miss Princess to fall asleep, and not doing a very good job. Until next time, keep on keeping on.
How is your day going? What yumminess did you have for dinner? What’s the best way to get a baby to sleep?
