When you become a parent, you should totally sprout an extra arm. You need it!
The Husband is headed out of town for a friendâ€™s wedding â€“ Henry and I are staying behind. Weâ€™re really going to miss him, and my mom is coming into town to provide back-up baby support. I think I could do it by myself for three days, but I also know that, by the end of the experience, I would be a semi-conscious zombie mom, my shirt would be inside-out and covered in drool, I wouldâ€™ve failed to shower for 72 straight hours, and the dogs wouldâ€™ve initiated a coup and be running the household. Maggie in chargeâ€¦ a scary prospect.
I picked Kristien up from work and took him out for a farewell lunch before heading to the airport. We went to Lunaâ€™s Living Kitchen, the best lunch spot in all of Charlotte. He started out with a lemonade-spinach smoothie, and I had an iced coffee.
Iâ€™m sure a lemonade-spinach smoothie sounds a little gross, but let me tell you â€“ it was so amazing (it also contained banana, pineapple, hemp protein, and ginger). You know how sometimes milk-based smoothies feel too creamy and heavy during the summer? This one was light and refreshing.
After drinking my iced coffee, I discovered a surprise â€“ coffee cubes. GENIUS. I am going to make these at home as soon as possible.
I had the Lunasagna, which is a raw/vegan lasagna made with zucchini noodles and a cashew cheese. I was always scared to order this dish (raw lasagna, seriously), but Iâ€™m so glad I tried it the last time I was at Lunaâ€™s because it really is the tastiest thing on the menu.
