Why? Weekends!

It was another fun summer weekend in the CLE, with a nice mix of activities and down time. I had a chance to try out a couple new recipes, made mostly with ingredients from our Fresh Fork Market summer share. For dinner on Friday night, I made smoked sausage and zucchini skillet (recipe here), except I substituted Ohio City Pasta linguine for the rice.

This was an easy, spicy meal!

On Sunday, I made coconut curry pork in the slow cooker (recipe here). I don’t usually use the slow cooker in the summer, but I’m glad I pulled out this go-to winter appliance, because this dish was flavorful and delicious!

Add a Dark & Stormy for a beverage and you have a great meal!

On Saturday, we met up with friends Amanda and Scott for a fun afternoon at Cedar Point. We started with some time at Soak City Waterpark, which Jeffrey always loves!

Not only can he splash and slide and play, but he also loved watching the roller coasters from the kiddie splash area.

Then we headed into the park and had lots of fun riding the rides in Camp Snoopy. Jeffrey loved the swings and tilt-a-whirl and I loved going to the park with people who can ride those with him (I’ve outgrown my ability to spin).

We had dinner at Famous Dave’s, which offers a nice break from the park, a chance to see the boats at the marina, and some pretty tasty BBQ (check out Amanda’s BBQ nachos…yum!).

We all left tired and happy after a really great day! It’s something truly special when your friends enjoy spending time with your child and we’re lucky that all of Jeffrey’s godparents take such an active role in his life!

Sunday was mostly spent catching up on things around the house, but I did sneak out for a Slow Flow yoga class at Evolution Yoga, taught by my friend Elizabeth. Elizabeth not only teaches Mom & Tot yoga, but also Slow Flow at 8am on Saturdays and 4pm on Sundays. It was a great class and a nice balance of challenging flow, stretches, and relaxation.

So, that was our weekend! How was yours?
