WEDNESDAY TORONTO HAD a "fall storm" alert, which meant that it was wet and miserable and cold outside all day long. I woke up dreading the idea of a day stuck at home, assuming it was going to be terrible with lots of tears and whining and yet it turned out to be one of our best days yet!
Finny woke up in a wonderful mood and we spent the morning cozied up in our jammies in bed and then enjoyed some oatmeal and raspberries for breakfast. After breakfast I started to prep a meal I've been meaning to cook for a dear friend who just had a baby and moved homes. Finn has taken a real interest in food and cooking and I try to encourage it and allow him to participate and "help"or at least sit on the counter to see what is going on as much as possible. He sat with me as I prepped and sautéed veg and was always willing to taste test to make sure the ingredients were up to snuff! ;)
He has inherited my love for carbs and chowed down on a quarter of a loaf of foccacia with his butternut squash soup for lunch. After lunch we played with his toys and had a solid game of chase around the apartment before baking dairy-free pumpkin cookies together before our play date with friends. (recipe to come) Who knew a rainy day with a one year old could be so fun!
