With Christmas and New Year’s just around the corner, I couldn’t be happier to put our holiday travels behind us. We flew down to Florida last week to spend Chanukah with our families, and thankfully, we survived. I definitely had some anxiety about traveling with a newborn, but Ethan was a trooper (as he usually is) and was the perfect little gentleman both during our trip and while being passed around to the family. Actually, I’m guessing I had a harder time with the ladder than he did; he’s my baby… give him back. (But seriously, what new mom doesn’t want to hold her baby all the time?)
Here’s our big guy passed out on the plane, exactly as we’d hoped:
(P.S. That’s a non-denominational candy cane on his pj’s.)
While in Florida, we gorged on delicious food. In addition to a few nice meals out, we had subs from Publix, TexMex from Tijuana Flats, surprisingly good pizza, and of course, LATKES. Two times. I call that a Chanukah win.
Now that we’re back home, my body has requested vegetables. Lots and lots of vegetables.
I can’t say that I’ve ever been a huge fan of lentils, but man is this dish good. It’s spicy and filling, and perfect as a post-holiday meal.
