Five on Friday

Happy Friday! I'm linking up with April and the Ladies for another Five on Friday.


I made Sausage, Kale, and White Bean Soup this week - it is a new favorite. I mostly followed this recipe, but added extra beans, stock, and seasonings. I served it topped with oven roasted tomatoes and asiago cheese.


My Dad gave us a copy of the Jungle Book and Sophia has a new obsession. Her favorite character is Baloo and she frequently requests to watch "Bear". She has watched the movie several times and already has most of it memorized. (Don't worry she only gets to view a little bit at a time.)


I am finding living with a toddler to be an adventure every day. My favorite tantrum this week came from the fact that the animal book we borrowed from the library was not a "lift the flap" book. I am hoping that we are just in the "terrible lead-up to two" rather than kicking off a full year of the "terrible twos".
I am still in shock that we have a two year old.
Happy Birthday Little Bean!


Speaking of birthdays, I am in shock as to how expensive birthday cakes are. I don't usually purchase bakery cakes since I have a gluten allergy. I wanted what I thought was a simple cake with rosettes for Sophia. After being quoted NINETY DOLLARS (the most inexpensive one I found was $46 for a 7-inch), we decided to go with a homemade cake.


We are finally entering the world of the iPad. Any favorite apps?
