Friday Five {no.7}: Ideas for the Week and Life

Here are five things I am loving and doing this week to inspire yours:


I wrote my monthly events not to miss for the month of April blog post, there are so many fun events coming up, I am super excited for so many of them.


Meal Planning…I love it, but totally fall off the bandwagon every few weeks (it is just so time consuming sometimes!).   I did some good meal planning last week and loved the recipes, try them out!

Carrot Pizza with Fontina and Red Onion: I know, I know, it sounds weird, but I swear both Mr. H and I were surprised by how good this was.

Roasted Cauliflower Linguine with Ricotta and Fresh Dill:  Also, kind of a surprisingly good flavor combination with the dill, and super easy to make.

Tater and I go on Adventures on Tuesdays.  This week we went exploring in the financial district.  He loved walking around the Vaillancourt Fountain, I can’t remember the last time I saw water in the fountain.  Curious, I googled it and found out it has been turned off because of the cost of energy to pump water through it.

I have been reading The End of Average by Todd Rose as my latest self book.  It has totally given me new perspective on thinking about how we compare everything to the average, but how this may not be a relevant benchmark.  Really interesting in terms of kids development as well as in terms of articles you read or hear on the radio.

We spend a lot of time in Golden Gate Park.  There are a ton of very different activities there from hiking to museums to playgrounds.    There are also a lot of very random things in the park (hello, buffalo).  This week we checked out the Murphy Windmill.  If you were wondering why we have windmills in San Francisco, like I was, it was originally built to generate electricity to pump water for watering the plants/trees in Golden Gate Park.
