Despite snow coming on the heels of summer and dead cherry blossoms, it's really spring now and our family celebrates with March birthday suppers. Below, my mom's dining room -
Shared birthday celebration for my mom, sister and uncle
Make your own salad bar with salmon and all the fixings
Girls night out with mom and sister - dinner at Pearl Dive followed by a play at the Studio Theater
tea parties with my boys
We love our tea. My six-year old's favorite is a red velvet cupcake herbal blend. I take my tea with milk and sugar and my boys follow suit.
tablescapes with kids
Above - poached eggs on top of spinach and gouda on my favorite Seedtastic bread. Legos permeate my entire existence. Despite half a dozen bins and storage areas, they are in every room, on the table, in my purse, pockets and office at work.
Fast weeknight dinner
throwing things together
I love when random leftovers from different days create a great lunch. Above - roasted sweet potatoes and eggplant and cedar plank salmon made a great salad with fig balsamic vinaigrette.
I invited my cousin over for dinner and a long catch-up chat. I ran to Safeway and picked up 75% marked down shrimp and 50% marked down peach pie and fruit tart. It became the spread below - an easy shrimp scampi, sauteed kale and chard, steamed green beans and desserts as the centerpiece.

We're a pair of lawyers (me, looking for a creative outlet and my husband, who likes working with his hands) with two little boys, a beagle and an old house with an unruly yard. We blog about our projects, food, and travel.
