Lazy Saturday


We enjoyed a lazy day around the house. Michael slept in. I blogged. Michael tried to fix my elliptical - seems I've worn out the belt. He and I drove around town looking for an auto shop which would have a belt that would work. We weren't successful. The kids played games with friends.

I wanted to make vegetable calzones for dinner. I LOVE the food at Airlie Center in VA. This recipe comes from there. I was trying to figure out how to make 1/4 of it with veggies and 3/4 with meat and cheese...when Michael said to make them all veggie and just add the cheese and ground turkey to 3 of them.....and everyone loved it....AND they ATE new veggies...I don't even know which was which as I don't remember ever eating parsnips or turnips before. LOL

Pure vegan yumminess!

Michael showed the kids a "magic trick"......this led to a long conversation about the best way to put out fires...and how impractical it would be to attempt to put out fires with vinegar and baking soda. 

Zander showed us all card tricks he remembered....


Stacia tried to figure out tricks Michael demonstrated. 

Just a wonderfully lazy Saturday...BTW Stacia does not really have black eyes. ::snort::

So gladd you seem to be having more time together to just enjoy.

Wish I could sy I have worn out and elliptical belt. :(:):) As to turnips/parsnips..you sure never ate them when growing up. However for a long time I do eat them RAW. I can eat a lot of stuff raw but not cooked.

Love the expression on Alexanders face as Mike talks about fire. Also his look when doing the card tricks and the bow is so cute.

Bet Stacia will work super hard until she masters the card tricks. ")

etc.

love/prayers - Dad/Mom t.
