Henry is growing so quickly and is getting so big that it has become difficult for me to carry him in his bucket seat. This has really zapped my motivation to take him out running errands. I have a bigger car seat waiting in the wings but since Henry isn’t sitting up yet this means my days of being able to go to the grocery store alone are numbered

Last week I was feeling extremely unmotivated to get Henry and myself bundled up and off to the grocery store so I was rummaging aroud our kitchen looking for inspiration. The result was a take on a greek salad using bulgar, red quinoa and chickpeas. It was delicious, filling and allowed me to finish up left over fresh mint and dill (I hate to see fresh herbs go to waste!).
