Why? Weekends!

It was a cozy, fun weekend in the CLE! On Friday, my mom and I took Jeffrey to check out The Jump Yard, which has tons of inflatables and a large toddler play area. While Jeffrey enjoyed running around near the inflatables, they weren’t really his bag.

This is as much inflatable time as we got…

But he loved the toddler area, which had lots of play houses, slides, a ball pit, and more.

The Jump Yard has varying open play hours, so check their website before you go. But between the inflatables and toddler area for the young ones, plus an arcade for older kids, The Jump Yard offers a great option for indoor play.

Friday evening, I met up with my lovely sister-in-law Elizabeth for dinner at Kasai.

Elizabeth lives down in the 330, so our dinners are always a great chance to not only catch up, but for me to try a new-to-me restaurant.

We started with martinis and sushi, which is how more dinners should start. I had the ginger martini and the Lucky Bounce roll, which had everything from spicy salmon to tempura asparagus to crab salad, rolled up into delicious bites.

For my entree, I had the hibachi-style shrimp. I loved the fried rice, which was pleasantly not greasy, as well as the tender vegetables and flavorful shrimp. Elizabeth had the beef rice bowl, topped with egg. I stole a bite and found this to be a delicious dish!

It was a fabulous and relaxing evening of good food and even better conversation!

Saturday was spent doing things like checking out the story time at Barnes & Noble and attending a belated holiday party with some of my extended family.

Sunday afternoon, Jeffrey and I went to a Kindermusik play date. We have our weekly classes, but there are also monthly play dates that focus on either upcoming holidays or various musical aspects. As usual, we had a wonderful time with song, dance, and instruments!

When we got home, I wanted to make something warm and filling to take away the chilliness of the day. Which is where this Moroccan Stuffed Acorn Squash came in. I used almost all Fresh Fork Market ingredients and was really pleased with this spicy and sweet meal.

In this picture, I forgot the toasted pine nuts and goat cheese. Don’t forget these!

It was a lovely little weekend and just the right mix of busy and quiet to settle back into normal after the holidays. How was your weekend?
