This weekend

It's been a pretty busy weekend so far, we just got back from a trip to buy groceries. I've been working on cleaning out the fridge, (what fun!), also am about to start on my third load of laundry today. I thought I'd pause for a minute and put my feet up. I just tucked in a kicking and pinching baby for his nap. He goes down so willingly when it's just the two of us, but when his siblings are around he doesn't want to nap, obviously afraid he'll miss out on something fun. He doesn't have to worry about that today! Between helping me out here and there, Safa and Hamza are just vegging out. Anyway, as soon as I coaxed him upstairs he was happy to go into his crib.

Last night we, along with 3 other families, hosted dinner at the mosque. We had food for about 200 people. The food was catered, but there was plenty of other stuff to do. We will be eating at the mosque again today. Tomorrow we're having some close friends come over for dinner. The menu is going to be Chinese, so we had to buy all those ingredients that we don't use on a daily basis. Here is what I have planned for tomorrow:

1. Fried rice
2. Coconut shrimp curry (well, it's really more Thai than Chinese, but it should work)
3. Orange chicken (haven't made that in a while!)
4. Pad Thai

One my friends is bringing soup. Zakir is going to make homemade strawberry ice cream for dessert, and we'll wash it down with a yummy rasberry spritzer with fresh lime. Dinner, anyone?

Glad you got your little peanut to nap. I suppose it makes sense that he wouldn't want to miss out on any activity.

That menu sounds FABULOUS! Can we come, too?? Yum yum. Pad Thai is one of my all-time favorites. I could eat it every day.

Have a great Monday!! xoxoxo
